Mike,
Thanks for sharing your wonderful experience with the Sumatra.  I
don't have any of that in my stash.  This is also something I have
been hoping someone would share unsoliced.  Hopefully Jason will read
this post and begin to understand that you don't have to carbonize
your beans to pull awesome shots.  I am having an Americano of the
last of the Moka Kadir.  Lots of nice deep dark chocolate flavors with
some maltiness.

Fortunately I'm not out of the 10# Sumatra Volkopi I got last year.
Unfortunately only one 1/2# roast batch left to look forward to! It was (is)
a really good one. Only halfs of the Blue Batak PB Sumatra and Tim-Tim
Blangili Sumatras left too. But that's ok, already received some new good
Sumatra! Oh, I really like that DP Flores Sasandu Tom offered, great
addition to my Indo' roast rotation.
One of these days I'll have to try the Moka Kadir...

I assume by this you mean that's what it tastes like out-of-the-bean?
Hmmm ... I haven't had a Milky Way since ... well, since those hazy =
college
days, but I used to really like them ...

Often it's dangerous to "assume" but it this case correcto mundo:-)
FWIW while I don't make cappuccinos all that often, maybe a couple times a
week, virtually all I do make are with various SO's rather than a blend
crafted for straight shots. Try a cap' from a really bright winey Kenya or
floral WP Yig' sometime, way good! That Blueberry Blast from the past Harrar
Lot 30 made fantastic caps. Or that previous peachy DP Yirg' or of course
Idido etc. etc. etc... I usually prefer a coffee on the bright and or fruity
side for cappuccinos smoothed and complimented by a modicum of microfoamed
naturally sweetened milk, that's sweetened by the microfoaming not adding
sweetener. (Rather than the approach many cafes take using either dark roast
to cut through the milk or a blend leaning towards aggressively pungent
bitter.) But today a Milky Way struck my fancy, hence used the Volkopi:-)

As it turns out SO caps are my main drink, with an occasional SO =
espresso to
keep tabs on the pure drink. I hardly ever blend, and then it's usually
leftovers for a "surprise, surprise!". So I know exactly what you mean =
by
the Blueberry Blast :-) Unfortunately I missed the Volkopi.
