Topic: Allmost forgot what blueberry smelled like (6 msgs / 129 lines)
1) From: Michael Dhabolt
Getting a little behind on my roasting schedule.  Currently roasting
for tomorrow mornings caps and shots.  What the heck....I'll roast a
half of my HH Lot 30 stash to go with a half of Blue Batak and a lb of
Yellow Bourbon.  I had forgotten how fragrant the HH #30 is.  The
blueberry smell almost made me swoon (or some such) at bean temp of
434 F....total roast time 13:30....definitely end of roast.
I had also forgotten how ugly the roast of a really good HH can be.

The problem with these great Ethiopian coffees is they tend to make you
think some of the other great coffees are a little dull!  I am enjoying a
cup of Brazil Yellow Bourbon this morning and it seems a bit dull, however
about half way through the first cup, I realized that this was smooth silky
coffee this morning, not blast to the taste-buds coffee.  The fine malt
chocolate aftertaste with a hint of tobacco is simply amazing, stunning is a
subtle way!  Got to love this hobby with all of the interesting ways to
enjoy a simple beverage.

Dang that blend tastes (sounds) good! No question, HH lot 30 was an
excellent blueberry bomb. I fondly remember exactly what you mean swooning
from the smell end of lot 30 roasts. Alas, long gone here. "Settled" for
starting the morning with a City+ Zuma Estate Kona Americano, just finishing
a LFC WP Yirg' cappuccino (not a blueberry bomb but excellent mandarin
orange chocolate cap' in it's own right). In a bit will pull a shot of FC
20/40/40 pre-roast blend Aged Sumatra Lintong, Brazil YB, Yirg' Misty
Valley.
But hmmm, only a 90 minute or so drive to The Dalles:-)

Ah yes, the one that got away. I remember that coming on right as I 
signed off list to focus on writing and other such stuff, and lamenting 
that I had just ordered and didn't have any money to get any. By the 
time I did, it was gone. So, I'll quietly await the next blueberry bomb 
batch to arrive, somewhere off in the future. ;)
But I really do like my Java Prince. I need to roast some more. I only 
have one pot of beans left!

Hmmm.  That Sumatra and YB are two legs of my Zigzag blend.  I usually use a
Central for the third leg....but maybe I'll try an Ethiopian instead, but
blend post roast
rather than pre-roast..  I think I traded all my Lot 30 to Barry for more YB
last summer.
I miss the Misty Valley.
Take care,
Ann
