1) From: Sean Cary
Moka Kadir - 
So I finally roasted some - does this stay consistent?  I loved it.  Had a
press pot of it on Wednesday since I got to go in late with the snow.  
 
Then I roasted some Monsooned Malabar - wow, not something I care for. This
was some funky stuff.
 
I blended some into a Columbian roast - I can tolerate it that way, but it
will be a long time before I will ever drink this stuff straight again.  
 
This Sunday - it has been a year since I got back, between a 1 - 2 lbs a
week roasted since then.  So I estimate I am about in the 100lb club.  I
guess I could total up my SM orders for the past year, I don't have a big
stash...

Sean,
If you have anything really 'Bright' roasted, try mixing about 15% of the
Elephant with it.....see what you think.

Monsooned Malabar is one of my fav coffees to use for espresso blends.  It's
a crema explosion, it rolls off the sides of the portafilter spouts!

was some funky stuff.
Malabar and other aged coffees like a slow 3C or about 6F ramp from first
crack to finish and IMO taste best between city+ and first snap of second.
Try for about 6 minutes between 250F and first crack. If this is too
"bright" then try 8 minutes.
