Topic: india anohki liberica roasting impressions (2 msgs / 45 lines)
1) From: Jim Gundlach
Harvey delivered today, three days after shipping on Monday, still  
less than half the time brown takes to get here.  I roasted about  
half of the pound by heat gun and stripped down bread machine.  Paid  
a lot of attention to looks and smells.  First, it seems a bit more  
yellow during the tan stage than other coffees. And, there seems to  
be a little red in the final browns, I took it just a little into  
second crack.  Another point, the second crack sounds are somewhat  
different, each snap seems to be of a shorter duration.  During  
roasting the smells are all unique.  No hay during the drying process  
and I really don't know how to describe the  smells that appear  
during roasting  but there is something barnyardish about it at a  
couple points.  I think I detect the huckleberry in the cooling beans.
     The barnyard comment reminded me of the tough times growing up  
on a farm in western Oklahoma.  I was about seven or eight and we  
only had one pair of shoes and they were reserved for going to school  
and the rare trips to town.  In the winter my bare feet would get so  
cold that I would warm them in the fresh cow pies.
    Well off to try this stuff in the AeroPress.

I ground some of the anohki in the zass, the aroma was overwhelming!   
Blueberry on steroids as Les suggested is right.  I offered Carol a  
sniff of the ground coffee and she said "I like that!"  I can't  
really add much to what Tom and Les have said about this coffee.  I  
like it and will order more if Tom gets it.  I look forward to  
experiencing it as it rests.  I would like to thank Tom for providing  
another rare and wonderful coffee experience.
