Topic: In praise of Poco Fundo (16 msgs / 412 lines)
1) From: Scott Bukofsky
It looks like this coffee is sold out, but unfortunately my stash has grown
to the point where it is sometimes weeks before I get around to roasting a
new coffee, so I am always out of sync.  Anyway, I hope people grabbed some
of this.  I am not usually a fan of Brazils, finding them often too gamy for
me, but this Poco Fundo lot really hit the spot.  It reminds me of a Chunky
Bar - the chocolate/nut/raisin confection.  I roasted it just into second
crack, and it is a powerhouse of nuts and fruit.  It is also exceptional as
SO espresso, where the chocolate jumps out at you with the fruit not far
behind.  Really nice stuff.  Anyone else drinking this?

This is one of the types I missed getting.  I would order them all if  
I could!  Right now, Im too busy relishing the Kenya Thika Peaberry  
and the Nicauragra  Limincilo Java Longberry.  These are two of the  
best ever.   The Poco Fundo sounds great tho!

Scott,
That's actually what I'm drinking right now.  It was pretty flat the first
day after roast, which was, like yours, just into second.  But after that,
it's been very pleasant.  It works great as a SO shot or Americano, and
stands up great in milk drinks (had company over this weekend, so that was
perfect).  Also had as a press pot, and the body was there, the
chocolate/nut flavors you mention, and it was a pretty clean cup.  I'm very
happy with it, but, alas, have only one more pound.

I try mine with the next americano or espresso I make. Likely for me it would be the following morning. 
This coffee, like so many others, is great regardless of how long you want to rest it.
I am a poco fundo whore so mine is gone asap.
Try every day and see what you like. I love the funky/heady taste of this coffee.

That coffee was absolutely fantastic!
The Brazil Screen-Dried Moreninha Formosa is similar.  It is a little
less fruited with a more intense and edgier chocolate at Full City+
than the Poco Fundo at the same roast level.  Both are thoroughly
enjoyable with great body and are the chocolate lover's delight.
Fortunately, the Brazil Screen-Dried Moreninha Formosa is still
available.

I think about 36-48 hours is where this one really starts to come out.
 I am drinking some right now.... I will miss this coffee when it is
gone.

Wes,
I believe I started drinking it after about 2 days of rest and
thoroughly enjoyed it for just over a week.  Don't wait though ...
sample soon and often.  Some of my favorite cups are right out of the
roaster.

I have some Poco Fundo left, and it is good stuff.
I also found in my stash a half-pound of one I had forgotten about. 
Brazil Cerrado 1st Place Faz Cruz Branca. Now, you want chocolate! 
That's a winner. (A first place winner even!) I believe I bought this 
last year or beginning of this year. Had my first cup today since 
roasting Monday morning. (FC) Brewed in my Yama, so smooth and tasty, a 
real chocolate lover's delight.
I've got to fire up the espresso machine before I use this all up. Once 
I've drained this one, I'll have no more of this bean! :(
Brazilian coffees are one of my favorites. That, Indian and Central 
Americans, then throw in a few from other regions that I especially 
like, like Harrar.
Speaking of Harrar, I roasted the last pound of my Green Stripe Monday 
morning too. Had a cup of that yesterday, and the clove spice flavor was 
strong. Really nice change of pace. Roasted that one to city. A ride on 
the light side.
The other pound I roasted was the last of my Costa Rican Miel. I still 
need to get a cup of that to find out how it turned out, but went to FC+ 
with it. Probably came close to a Vienna. That's one I bought over a 
year ago, 5#. Last batch I made I remember thinking it was really a 
great cup of coffee. Sweet and fruited.
Okay, I had to go get another cup talking about them all. Hummm, chocolate!

I've had my first 2 cups of my Poco Fundo brewed in my FP (awaiting the =
arrival
of my new Chemex tomorrow, after my wife dropped something heavy on my
original!).  Yesterday, after  <1 day rest, it was STRONG PEANUT ... good=
 but a
little much even for this peanut lover!  Today was excellent ... smooth =
milk
chocolate plus peanut with some other nice flavors, which I could not =
identify;
the flavors changed every sip ... all good!
I can't wait until tomorrow to try it again ... or after almost 3 days =
rest, I
might go for the Esmeralda Gesha, which I also roasted.  (Or if I want to=
 get
wired, maybe both! :) )
