Topic: Zombie coffee (12 msgs / 171 lines)
1) From: Alchemist John
I am currently drinking some of the '03 aged Sumatra (oaky, peaty, 
smokey, dusty and just a bit funky at City).  I recall a poem that I 
think Tom wrote about aged or monsooned coffees being about the 
coffee zombies would drink.  Can anyone point me to that poem or post 
it?  SM's and goggle searches  didn't get me there.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
It used to be in a Monsooned Malabar review a number of years ago. I
remember seeing it when I first started buying from Tom in '01. Haven't been
able to find it for a good year or more in any of the archived reviews and
site search no go as you found out too. Tom must have deleted it.

Did a search, came up with this: (for Malabar Monsooned)
Notes: *My Malabar Poem* (no, it doesn't rhyme) * If Zombies drank coffee
...it would come from these swollen pale moon-beans. * If Zombies drank
coffee ...they would crave the funereal spice, pepper and hearty must in
this brain-numbing, deep, thick, somber cup. * If Zombies drank coffee
...they would haunt the warehouses where Malabar coffee is interned for a
season of monsoon humidity and made somewhat unholy-looking evermore. * If
Zombies made espresso...they would use at least 15% Monsooned Malabar to
lend undead funk to the cup ...or if they were real macho zombies they would
drink it as straight filtered coffee and NOT wash out their mouth afterward,
as I do!

Damn, I say the 15% in a goggle search and bypassed it.  Thanks.  That's it.

so when you pay the premium for 'aged' coffee, it delivers a better taste,
but when you buy lets say, a premium gevalia or dunkin donuts bean, its
inferior to any home roast. maybe we need to let the gevalia age longer?
i wonder how good dunkin donuts would do at selling cat poop coffee?  :)

6) From: Alchemist John
I can't say it is a better taste.  It is a different taste, and NOT 
to many tastes.  Aged is not just old, otherwise we could all just 
age our own coffee.  From what I hear, aging coffee is a risk because 
at the end you producer may simply end up with old baggy coffee, not 
aged coffee.

And the aging is done with green beans, not roasted ones a la Gevalia, DD,
et. al.

ah, yes, that too.  Thought that was obvious as we get aged and 
monsooned from Tom and that is green (or grey or pale-moon).

I have two pounds of the '03 aged Sumatra.  It'll be roasted 8oz at time.
Don't think I can drink it all week long but I may be able to enjoy it (and
therefore roast it) a few times every now and then spread out over a few
months....

My experience with Moonsooned Malabar was that I thought it tasted GREAT on
days 1-3, I let it sit about 4 more days and could not STAND the smell of
the roasted the next time I opened the valve bag.
