Topic: Columbia CoE 12 El Descano (7 msgs / 96 lines)
1) From: Les
I just roasted up a batch of the El Descano.  It was different than
other beans.  It took about a minute longer to get to first crack.
First crack lasted an extra 30 seconds.  I intuitively added a minute
to my roast shooting for a nice full city (RK Drum).  I nailed the
roast right where I wanted it.  The cooling beans were smelling
outstanding!  The Carmel was very intense.  I think this is going to
be a special one!  Speaking of specials.  The Blue Batak is in!  Talk
about timing, my last pound  of last years will be roasted this week
if I stay on schedule.  I wish I could do that every time.  For you
newbies, this is one you don't want to pass up.  It is the coffee I
used for this pour-nography picture.  www.thortamper.com/crema.html
Eddie it is time to get a hold of Harvey again. :>)  The Western shill
is informing the Southern Shill.

Nice truck! So does the engine produce crema instead of exhaust? ;)

No, but it will burn rubber going into second with more intensity than my RK
drum produces smoke going into second crack!  The right link is

I couldn't resist on about 10 hours rest.  This El Descano is simply
stunning.  It began with a hint of molasses  followed by sweet Carmel
and some of the nicest plum - raisin and that  impeccable smoothness
and complexity that a Columbia is noted for.
Tom, I really think the extra care in packaging and sending these
beans shines through.  Thanks  This is coffee that Juan Valdez only
dreams about!
