Topic: *glee* Harvey is my darling. He brings me Kona. (8 msgs / 206 lines)
1) From: Silvia Marsh
He brought me my coffee.
I got a pound of Kona, a pound of Colombia Tolima Planadas-El Jordan, a
pound of Yemen Mokha Sana'ani, and a pound of chicory (My friends went to
New Orleans for their honeymoon, and the closest thing they can find to Cafe
du Monde is the stuff in the can, which I have on good authority is crap.
I'm gonna make them a gift that they can really enjoy. ;)).
I also got a 4-pack sampler, because I love surprises and have yet to be
disappointed. In that, I got Timor FTO Maubesse (which I still have most of
a pound of, and which is going to a friend that has good memories of a Timor
coffee he's had in the past), a Mexico Organic Nayarit Terruno, which I'd
just run out of in my normal stash, and two that I've never had: an
Indonesia Flores Sasandu Dry-Process and a Panama Lot 12686. I'll be looking
up those in Tom's cupping notes. :)
Now...I'm not gonna rhapsodize on the beauty of the Kona bean compared to
the rest of the beans. I'm not gonna compare it to carved jade, because I
know at least part of my google-eyed love is sheer anticipation of the
cup...but wow, it's a purty coffee. ;)
On a different note, any suggestions on a good coffee to mix with the
chicory?

Silvia,
I work in New Orleans every day and can confirm for you that the canned Cafe
du Monde coffee is genuine crap; I haven't met a coffee with Chicory that I
have liked yet.  Wasted 4 hours of my life, that I'll never get back, trying
to get to work in New Orleans today.  I finally gave up ... working from
home.
I'm not sure if there is a specific kind of coffee that is "supposed" to
blended with Chicory, but I would think that either the Columbia Tolima
(GOOD STUFF) or the Timor (GOOD STUFF) with a fairy dark roast treatment
should blend well.  I also wonder if the Sweet Maria's French Roast Blend,
roasted as prescribed by Tom would be a perfect match for some coffee and
Chicory.
Hope this helps ...
Eddie

I had the SM French Roast Blend matched with Chicory, and it was very 
good.  Sent some to friends who are fans of New Orleans style coffee, 
and they said it was the best they had ever had.

I don't get the coffee and chicory thing - how would one prepare such.
Grind some beans, throw in some appropriate ratio of chicory to the
post-ground mess, and brew?  What's the right ratio?

Thanks, I guess I should have gone there first to look instead of posing so
stupid and foolish a question.  My deepest.
