Topic: woo hoo (13 msgs / 607 lines)
1) From: Patrick S. Harper
5 more lbs of Blue Batak and some more Misty Valley are on their way.  I
really like the Blue Batak a lot, it makes a heck of a pot of coffee.  Has
anyone tried it as espresso?

2) From: Les

I slowed down the roast for espresso, but kept the overall degree of 
roast pretty light - just a few snaps of 2nd, then rested a few days.

This is a copy of what is on the web site about 
  Malabar Gold is patterned after European espressos, settling on a =
roasting style between those of Northern and Central Italy. This blend =
is particularly noteworthy for its richness, velvety texture, and =
persistence of crema. Malabar Gold, the result of more than three years =
of development and testing, is a sweet, smooth, mellow espresso with =
plenty of body. It is a low-acid blend with no unpleasant bitterness and =
not even a hint of sourness. Its aroma and fragrance are pleasant and =
distinguishing, and its taste is unique and outstanding. Its aftertaste =
is long lasting and memorable. Malabar Gold produces crema with the =
right tinge of reddish-brown color. The crema is rich, velvety, and =
plentiful, and features the aroma and fragrance of the freshly ground =
coffee captured within. Malabar Gold's crema is also astonishingly =
persistent, lasting more than 20 minutes before it breaks in the middle =
to reveal the dark brew underneath.

For the record Tom's has offered Monsooned Malabar Gold in the past. Even if
he hadn't Tom welcomes open discussion of any coffees, with the stipulation
links to competitor websites not be posted of course.

I'll be driving right by USP on my way home.  I will longingly look at the
building where my 5 pounds of beans are sitting to be delivered.  I can't
believe the Peru CoE is gone already.  I sure am glad I didn't hesitate to
pull the trigger on that one!  My Blue Batak will be coming as well as some
triple pick to round out the stash.  I am looking forward to some stash
balance.  I am also looking forward to some Uganda, India, and the next crop
of Kenya coffees.  Speaking of Kenya coffee, my daughter seems to love
them.  My son-in-law likes Centrals and doesn't like the fruity coffees that
I love some much!  Mike, I have some very fine Kona resting for Friday!  I
sent a quarter pound to the kids, I hope they don't go crazy about it, I
can't afford to supply their habit if I have to send the Kona.

Funny you should mention the Blue Batak.  I've had several glowing reports
from some folks whose taste I trust......prompted a 20# order, earlier this
evening.  Tom says 'Syrupy', 'Brown Sugar', 'Red Wine' and it's a DP....I'm
already salivating.  I've been short of a good Sumatra for a while now -
problem solved.  Anyone zeroed in on a great profile for it yet??
Mike (just plain)

11) From: Patrick S. Harper
Looks great, I have been really impressed with it so far.  I like it with a
bit more of a rest then most of the others I have in the stash.

12) From: Patrick S. Harper
I am bad, I use pre-set 2 and it seems to work well for me.  I listen to it
as close as I can with my damaged hearing (they weren't kidding about
needing to wear those earplugs when firing mortars) and also use sight and
smell and it turns out pretty good.  Being the Linux guy that I am I wish
they had a command line interface for me to tinker with the IR2 :)  I am
thinking about trying to build something and my buddy at work who is much
better at wiring stuff that will not blow up the house might help, he really
enjoys the coffee I bring to the office for him.  Although I have also been
thinking about doing the gas grill thing and just need to do a little
searching of the archives for the parts I need.  I might feel safer if I did
that then something electric.

Ohhh, that could be a catch22, huh?  Don't post a link to some text you may
be copying that would describe this stuff, and fear the wrath of those whom
must see homage where its due.
Post a link, and violate the other list rule.
Yucky, ill avoid it all together!
