Topic: Blue Batak and green chiles (5 msgs / 72 lines)
1) From: Chris Hardenbrook
I understand the difference between red and green (my sister lives in NM and you are right about the State Question).  Now, I want to know if, in addition to the flavor, you have a distinction in your cup between picante and caliente?

A few days ago I roasted some Blue Batak (purchased at the end of
July) and brewed a cup that day in a moka pot. The flavors were
intense but I couldn't place them. Finally brewed another cup today
and more intense flavor, and this time I can put a finger on what the
main flavor is. I lived in New Mexico for three years and ate a lot of
green chili (NM State Question: Red or Green?), and this coffee tastes
like green chilis. And not just a little, it tastes like I am biting
into a mouthful of green chilis! Amazing.

I didn't notice chili "heat" in the cup. Think very mild green chilis,
whole but roasted, with a very, very pronounced green chili flavor. I
will be brewing Blue Batak until I roast again, and am interested to
see if the flavors mellow as the days pass, though the roast has been
resting for 3 days (I'm pretty sure I roasted them Saturday).
I love the flavor of green chilis, might have to get some canned whole
green chilis (next to impossible here in SC) and make chili rellenos.
When I lived in NM and could get fresh roasted chilis, I froze them
and ate them often, especially with egg and cheese sandwiches,
burgers, burritos, etc.

I checked the roast date; it was 9-27, so rested longer than I said
before. Made another moka pot today and still has that very strong,
wonderful green chili flavor.
