Topic: Little Debbie Nutty Bars (10 msgs / 183 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
Oh, how I have a weakness for them, especially at only 25 cents, which
is why I steer clear of them.  Now, I have a substitute!  It is called
India Mysore Nuggets Extra Bold!  I cupped some coffees this evening
that I roasted in the RK Drum Friday evening.
India Mysore Nuggets Extra Bold - seriously, Little Debbie Nutty Bars
... peanutty, chocolately, some spice ... awesome!
El Injerto - a rush of sweet green grape in the aroma with fruited
character in the cup, but it is not quite fully developed
Bolivia FTO SHG EP Caranavi - sweet and refined, fruit floral and some
sweet chocolate in the background
Sumatra Mandheling "Blue Batak" - I really like this coffee and I was
completely stunned to find fresh, sweet apricot in the aroma and that
same sweetness in the cup of a truly Indonesian coffee ... nice!
I love the RK Drum!

The MNEBs are great.  My last batch scorched a bit, so they're not too
good now.  But at just about 4oz of beans, mistakes aren't that costly.
I'm sipping on some of the Bolivia now.  You're right- smooth and
wonderful.  How far did you roast the Bolivia?  I took mine to City+,
stopping just prior to 2nd.  Rested 4 days.

The Bolivia went to City+, no sign of 2nd crack and the fragrance was
intoxicating!  At only 2 days rest, the Bolivia exudes elegance.

You know ... I find the changes that coffee undergoes to be utterly
fascinating.  I tasted the India Mysore last night at about 10:PM and
brewed it this morning at 4:00 AM.  There was a lot of transformation
that occurred in that "short" period of time, but this is an awesome
coffee!  The spice in this coffee is incredible.

What about the MNEB, Eddie? At what level of roast did you find the "nutty
bar" effect? I'm getting ready to order some myself.

MNEB = Full City+, 1 lb roast, moderate ramp to boiling first crack by
9:30, onset of second crack at 12:15, at 12:25 pulled the roast and
cooled quickly on fan.  Nutty bar was at 2 days rest.  this morning it
is different, but still divine.

I just ordered 5 lbs from SM, along with 5 of the new Java and 2 of the
Panama (to round out my 12 lb. Harvey). When it arrives, it will put me over
the 100 lb mark in inventory. Somebody stop me.

Eddie,
Blue Batak is in my top 5 coffees.  Just wait until day four on the El
Injerto, it will be flavor and complexity injected!  I just love Indian
coffees and the Mysore is one of the better ones.  Enjoying the last of on
of the Columbia CoE offerings as I type.  Smooth crisp clean flavor with a
nice hint of malt aftertaste.  Tom has us spoiled.  Pulled a Kenya out of
the stash this morning as I have not had one in about a month.  Hopefully
some new ones will be appearing soon.  I looked at my last 2 pounds of
Uganda Bugisu this morning and will roast a pound of that late this week.  I
have some good Brazils to keep me happy for a while and one more roast of
Harar Horse Lot 30.  And yes I do have Blue Batak in the stash!

Little Debbie Little Lemon Cakes, yummy...
you said:>>>Sumatra Mandheling "Blue Batak" - I really like this coffee and I was

very good as a cafe crema.
See once you start using the drum, especially for larger amount of coffee, you get hooked.
I will need to send you a chefs coast with your roaster company logo!!
