About two weeks ago I posted how my wife used my SMP to grind up French Vanilla flavored Green Mountain coffee. For various reasons I was unable to roast since the end of June and we succumbed to store bought coffee. I have actually been drinking loose leaf tea over this time period rather than drink the store bought coffee. Thankfully, this weekend I had the time to thoroughly clean the SMP. It took me two hours two to painstakingly disassemble the unit and scrub all the parts with a toothbrush to remove the French Vanilla scent and subsequently reassemble the machine. I even disassembled the burrs and scrubbed them. Thanks to the kindness of Eddie Dove, India Mysore Nuggets Extra Bold (City + in the GC) is on the coffee menu this week and was enjoyed this morning. Believe it or not, I was very grateful for this experience. Not having home-roasted coffee, the occasional Mickey D's and *$ coffee covered with cream in sugar, and the loose leaf tea really made helped me to appreciate how good fresh roast, and Sweet Maria's beans really are. After constantly drinking it, one (as lazy as myself) may have a tendency to take coffee of this caliber for granted and begin to wonder if the roasting process is worth the effort. For me, it is and I'm glad to be back in the game!
Thanks Kevin and glad to see that you are back in the game! I still have to try that coffee at City+. Eddie -- Vita non est vivere sed valere vita est Roasting Blog and Profiles for the Gene Cafehttp://southcoastcoffeeroaster.blogspot.com/On 7/30/07, Kevin wrote: <Snip>

Leo, No one likes it when their nuggets are sore but you're missing out on a great coffee, especially if you like peanuts. I'm a peanut junkie and the roasted peanut notes in the City + roast of this bean are amazing. Mysore Nuggets aside, ordered the max of the two Gesha offerings. I just couldn't resist after how much my family enjoyed the Esmeralda Gesha offering from the last crop. Kevin
good to know.. im probably going to order something soon, ill consider it as well. dunno that a peanut espresso catches my mouth, though..outside of iced coffee, its all ive been drinking. On 7/31/07, Kevin wrote: <Snip>
Kevin wrote: <Snip> That's why I've order 5# of those nuggets. I love Indian coffees, everyone I've had so far has been terrific. I think it has become my favorite coffee region. And the peanut notes are what attracted me to this. I've had peanut coffee from a different Indian coffee before and loved it. Wonderful flavor, so I can't wait to sip some of this! Today, though, I'm drinking my staple. Guat. Huehue. La Maravilla which is currently just over a year and a half old on the beans, and they still roast up great and taste great. I think I still have about 5# left from that 20# bag. Probably a little too much for one coffee drinker. ;) But I'm not much into flowers and such, nor do I care as much for bright, so no Panamas for me. But, that's just me. -- Rick Copplehttp://www.copple.us/blog/
