Congrats!
Mix up and roast to FC (drum)/FC+(air) something like a batch of 20% Aged
Sumatra, 40% Brazil Yellow Bourbon, 40% DP Yirg' (like Misty Valley) and
bring in a pound @ ~5 day rest for him to taste some shots and maybe even
have a few adverturous customers compare with what they now pull as straight
shots, machiattos, cappuccinos...(But wouldn't waste it attempting to
compare Almond Joy, Milky Way, Pumpkin Spice, Snicker Doodle lattes etc.:-)

Well, I'm really sick, with what is most likely bronchitis, but despite
this, I
am so happy - I got a job! (FINALLY!!) 
I'll be helping out at a cute, new little cafe right down the street from my
house.
Actually, he's given me the title, "Assistant Pastry Chef," but I'm not
letting that go to my head - it's a small place, so I translate it to: get
there early, 
leave late, and in between do what ever is needed, whenever. 
 
Hopefully I can influence him to ditch the awful coffee...

Mmm - that sounds delish. I already brought in a sample of my coffee for
him, but with the caveat that with my cold, I can't really taste that well.
I don't think the sample I gave him was
my best - I will bring a second in, though (he took it and said he was
bringing it home to try, def wasn't going to leave it there!)
He doesn't have an espresso machine there. Which, for me, is just as well,
since I know nothing about espresso.

Sorry, my mistake, that blend works other (inferior:-) brewing methods too.
My mind just doesn't compute the word "cafe" without including espresso!
(Typed savoring a shot's linger of said blend from a rather young 2 day
rested Behmor pounder test roast, already much better than 1 hour and 1 day
rested test shots, but not yet nearly where think it will be another couple
days.)

  That does not stop the espresso machine operators ( I refuse to call  =
those people baristas) at many places.
