Topic: Columbia Choco-El Carmen del Atrato (2 msgs / 36 lines)
1) From: Les
I had Becky (my wife) pick the next bean to roast.  I just couldn't
decide.  I never did the quad Gesha test.  Too many tampers to make!
Let me tell you this is an awesome bean.  First off I roasted it to a
nice full city plus.  I ramped fast and had a 5 minute stretch between
1st crack and the 1st snap of second when I pulled it.  Tom didn't
talk about chocolate in his write-up by Wow!  does this have the
chocolate.  I pulled cappos this am, and Becky said it had a nice
chocolate taste with a nice brightness on the tip of the tongue.  This
disappears as it cools.  One reason the chocolate may not be in Tom's
write-up is I don't detect it with out the steamed milk.   I am
enjoying an Americano as I type.  I am getting the plum and black
currant that Tom talks about.  He says the cup is "lush and rounded."
My take on that is that this is one smoooooooooooooooooth cup of
coffee.  A nice full mouth of flavors with that hint of raisin that
marks most Columbians.  This is a much more complex cup than most
Columbians and it makes an excellent Cappo, SO shot, and I am real
impressed with the Americano.  This is the most complex Colombian I
have experienced.  I guess I am a West Coast guy even when it comes to
Columbian coffees!

Thanks for the description - you made my mind up about what next to 
roast. I'll report back in a few days - the roast went well today, so 
I am looking forward to first taste!
