Topic: a mouthful blend - some blend (7 msgs / 263 lines)
1) From: Stephen Carey
So, I am in the kitchen, just before dinner roasting 5.5 ounces of 
Guat Chimeltenango - San Jose Ocana.  I finish the roast, it looks 
and smells to be right where I wanted it, a touch pre-FC, will know 
for sure when I taste it.
At the same time I am drinking a nice cup of Ethiopia Harar Hoarse - Lot 14659.
I do my bean crunch test on the Guat, awe man, the flavors so alive, 
this could be a very good roast, indeed.  I wash it down with a drink 
of my Harar Hoarse coffee - bam, wham, pop, 1960's Batman style 
graphic flavors in my mouth, what an odd, interesting, unique, one of 
a kind blend.  I meant to grab the water glass, I didn't expect a 
heated coffee.  And when it hit with the crunch Harar Hoarse, what a 
incredible - I don't know any other word to use, I am adjective 
deficient at this moment.
What I can say is it was good.  I can suggest to try it sometime when 
roasting, worst thing that can happen is it isn't great and that you 
can wash away.
Just wanted to share a very unusual taste trip of mine, maybe 
everyone does it, but it was new to me.

Thanks Stephen!  Who says a newbie can't teach us oldie moldies
something new!  Tomorrow morning I am going to try a bean crunch
washed down with some Harar Horse Green Stripe!  I am looking forward
to this new coffee experience!  Sounds like fun.

5) From: miKe mcKoffee
Just this morning did a post roast bean munch of a couple "lights" in the FC
Yemen roast to see if I should cull them. Nope, great fruit no sour. Washed
it down with the Zuma Estate Kona Americano I was drinking but didn't think
of it was a big of an event! Just another post roast bean crunch-n-coffee of
the moment blend...
Which isn't to say I don't thoroughly enjoy your enthusiastic prosaic
postings Stephen!

Hey this was fun!  A nice chocolate bean crunch of the Guat with the fruit
explosion of the Horse!  I am going to have this treat every once in a
while.  It will then continue to be a treat!

Stephen - I love your postings - and this was a terrific discovery.
Now imagine - here we are, homeroasters spanning the globe - and
we are now crunching beans and trying a sip of homebrew to see how
it tastes... amazing, isn't it?
