Topic: Guatemala Quiche - La Perla Estate (8 msgs / 279 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
Not this past weekend, but the one previous, I roasted this coffee to
a nice City+, bordering  a light Full City.  It had been in my stash
since the beginning of last December.  At about 15 minutes 30 seconds
into the roast it started to develop the an intoxicating cocoa aroma.
All last week and yesterday at work, my coworkers and I had been
enjoying this very mild coffee.  This evening I opened the coffee
cabinet and found that I had just a little bit left ... 80 grams.
Enough for on pot in the Technivorm, but no ... KMB!  I hadn't touched
it since last October!  A few clicks and Vicki's KMB brewing notes
were in hand ...
In the cup, cocoa, cocoa, cocoa ...  warm, soothing, mellow.  I am not
sure it tasted like it, but it made me think of the Toblerone milk
chocolate.  Delightful, relaxing ... a good way to start the evening.
Any one else enjoy this or similar?
Brewed in a KMB - used 60 grams of coffee.

Yes Eddie I have similar feelings about this coffee.  It was the first 
coffee I roasted from my last large highly diversified order.  I roasted it 
well into FC.  I noticed the cocoa and a nicely refined sweet acidity.  It 
was smooth and well balanced.  I brew in a French press.  I rarely drink 
coffee in the evening but it is a treat when I do and I did that with this 
coffee.  I agree that it is a great after dinner coffee.  I opened my 
sampler pack from that last order and noticed that I had another half pound 
of this coffee and I was thinking how lucky I was that more of my favorite 
from this order also showed up in my sampler pack!  Unfortunately it sold 
out before my next order.  I will be on the lookout for future offerings on 
this one.  I admit I am partial to Guatemalans.

Eddie,
After reading your review, I really must find and unpack the wonder  
GC!  From  my experience, your reviews tend to be spot on and I have  
found them invaluable.  You have me drooling and lamenting my current  
beverage <> keemun concherto loose leaf tea... (better than  
stale coffee any day).

Eddie,
I can't find Vicki's KMB brewing notes. If they are on a web site, can you
tell me the url?
Thanks,
Brian

Thank you, Vicki. I was using the KMB pretty regularly for a while, but
switched to moka pots, and now I have a hard time remembering how I used to
make coffee with the KMB!

Don't feel alone, Brian. I've been using a French Press for months now - and
when I tried to use my moka pot, for some reason, it came out awful!
I'm blaming it on my stove...
