Topic: Monkey and a Moka-Pot Works! (9 msgs / 274 lines)
1) From: Bob
Roasted a just arrived Monkey blend last night to Vienna, as per Tom's 
recommendation. My first roast beyond Full City Plus on purpose.
I do not have an espresso machine, so I wanted to try the MB in the 
Moka-pot. This morning I took the plunge and it turned out very nice. 
Smooth. Strong. A bittersweet chocolate that lasted a fair while. Right 
now, I can get a decent approximation of what an espresso machine can do 
with this stuff. Wonderful.
I put the grinder about 6 steps beyond drip on a Solis Maestro Plus.

Hey Bob -
I'm going to try that Monkey Blend next order.  I got a pound of the Classic
Italian last order and for me, it's a bit too much over the top (at least
with the moka pot).  I've been using my other beans (Brazils, Sumatras,
etc.) with it to make some really good Americanas.  The best espresso drink
I've made with the Classic Italian is a Cuban style (with heated milk).  But
as a stand alone drink, I haven't found a good enough grind to
volume proportion to really enjoy it enough.  I can't wait to try the Monkey
next time though!

Dan,
I'm going to try a couple more of the espresso blends SM offers. I've 
been using a Sumatran and a Sulawesi. Even tried an Ethiopian. That did 
not work very well.
My wife call the Moka-Pot our fake espresso machine.

 You may have the moka pot assembled rongly. I can't imagine how the coffee
brew would get over the top if it's working normally.
Reread the instruction sheet -ro

Next time out try some Liquid Amber--a bit more complex and wild than  
Monkey but subtler than CIEB.

Puro Scuro, IMHO, is perfect for Moka pots.

I absolutely agree on this one...Puro Scuro is also good in a french press
with some chicory. ;)  A multitasking coffee.
