Topic: New beans (8 msgs / 151 lines)
1) From: an iconoclast
I have no willpower.  I intended to buy three 20 lb bags as my stash
was down to 130 lbs, but there were too many choices. So, instead I
had to get 5 lb bags of everything that looked interesting.  I
actually get a tax refund this year, so will taste these and buy my 20
lb bags when the money hits my checking account.
Anybody tasted the beans below?  Haven't heard too much chatter about
many of them as some are pretty new.
Sumatra Mandheling "Blue Batak"
Colombia Tolima Planadas - El Jordan
Peru Organic WP Decaf
Panama Lot 12686
Peru Las Delicias - Zenon Vargas
Brazil Carmo de Minas - Fazenda Sertao
Mexico Organic Oaxaca WP Decaf
Take care,
Ann

Stash down to *only* 130 lbs?!! That makes me look pretty silly with my 
"stash" of around 20-30 pounds most of the time. :)

Man.. you guys are making me sick!  I just bought 4 lbs to keep my
inventory available for roasting.  With a iR2 I can only roast around
100-150g at a time and my wife doesn't drink coffee (acid reflux!).  I
started sharing with a couple of coworkers who have now gotten used to
an Aeropress of the latest roast each afternoon. It would be very hard
for me to roast or use more than about a lb per week.  I guess I'm truly
the 'little guy' but dreamin' of becoming big some day! 
So here's the "new beans" that I'll be trying out in a few days...
anyone have any thoughts on them:
Brazil Cachoeira da Grama
Peru Norte Especial
SM's Espresso Monkey Blend

I roast about 14 lbs per week, sell some, and supply my sis and
bro-in-law and my daughter and son-in-law with beans, so I like to
have a lot of beans on hand.  I like the Peru Norte.  Haven't had the
others. But, I've never had a bad bean from SMs.
Take care,
Ann

Carlos, both the Brazil and the Peru are awesome...the Peru's good on no
rest at all, but gets so much better after about three days. The Brazil,
give that four days and you'll be happy. :)

I'm one happy ape with my Espresso Monkey!  This and Liquid Amber will 
be my 5# bag items from now on.  Unless Tom comes up with something 
better :D

I would be sure to keep this on the light side, City+ or the lighter 
side of FC. If you can get a little of the tangerine or citrus from it, 
it's very balanced, complex and sweet. Unusual for a Brazil with the 
wood notes.

Hey... thanks for the tip!  I'll be sure to test my patience on these.
Since my iR2 only roasts about 100 g, a lot of the time i've used it up
in just a couple of days.  I haven't really tested the resting time on
beans yet.  As you can tell probably, I'm still a Newbie at this with
way too much to learn!   ~carlos
