Is there a consistent bean out there in terms of flavor profile? I know that since it's a crop, they will change flavors each season depending on how the butterfly flaps its wings in Japan. I'm the type who, when I find a dish at a restaurant, I'll order it every time. Is there a bean that I can depend on season to season?

no... you can most likely profile a columbian to match your taste. ginny ---- Jonathan Parungao wrote: <Snip>
The Panamanians get my vote for uniform Excellence, just because I happen to have several lots on hand. (2 or 3 at near the 5lb level for now). It's certainly not the only one. It lives. Everything you do to it can really change the taste the coffee bean yields. Cheers -RayO,aka Opa!

Jonathan, IMO you are more likely to find that kind of consistency with a blend rather than a single origin. While I like the variety and variations in most of the SOs Tom offers, I love the consistency of Monkey and Donkey blends for espresso. Not boring, not a rut, but a delightful groove that usually starts and ends my day. On 3/20/07, Jonathan Parungao wrote: <Snip> -- MichaelB
Try Foulgers... Very consistent, and always in the red can to make it easy to find! Brett On 3/20/07, Jonathan Parungao wrote: <Snip> -- Cheers, Bretthttp://homeroast.freeservers.com

C'mon Silvia, you know it won't be a coffee bean. At least not a specialty coffee - coffee bean. Maybe he needs a Lima bean, or a pinto bean. If you want the same coffee year after year, you need to buy at the lowest common denomenator on the coffee scale. This means buying low enough on the scale that the coffee will be the same every year. Folgers does that for you... Regards, Happy Roasting, lousy drinking. But consistent!

I'm on this list because I don't do Folgers, Sanka, sbux, or whatever supermarket preground beans are out there. I know how good fresh roasted coffee is, I have roasted myself. My first roast was a panama boquete, no longer available, and I loved the taste of the cup. The reason I ask is that I like consistency, dependability, that old friend that I can go to time after time. Just because it's consistently good doesn't mean it's boring or folgers red can variety. I could have ordered 5 tons of the stuff so I could have it the rest of my life, but I know that green bean shelf life is only about 2 years after I get it. So keep on keeping on flying by the seat of your pants, I'd like to stick with a buddy.
Jonathan, You wrote, "I have roasted myself." WOW! With this crowd, you sure left yourself wide open with that one ... Don't recall doing this before so ... welcome aboard!

Yeah, I like to roast myself to a nice medium/medium well. Hehe.
