1) From: Brett Mason
It's a rainy Sunday morning, and my birthday...  Last night I took a page
from Dave Kvindlog's techniques, and carefully roasted a popper load (1/3
cup) of Mexico Organic Nayarit Terruno to a City+.
Rested overnight, ground in my Cory Grindmaster, and brewed a Melitta
Clarity Drip pot for my quiet morning...
Here's my thoughts ...
  Sweet
  Smooth
  a little tangy - I see where Tom noted that
  nice follow through, touching on light chocolate
Cheers,
Brett

Aged Sumatra, in an Aeropress in a motel room (what else is new?).   
Didn't use my kettle to heat the water, but rather the in-room  
coffeemaker; turns out the carafe was from another machine and I had  
to hold it up against the spring beneath the filter holder to get the  
water to drip through. PITA, for sure.

Happy Birthday Brett!
My Sunday morning brew this morning was a Java monsooned arabica.
Roasted yesterday afternoon in two 100g batches well into FC+, quite a
bit darker than I usually roast. It's very tasty, nice and sweet. I
was a little worried about it though because of the way it roasted.
Especially the first roast, I only heard a couple the pops of first
crack, and I'm not sure I ever actually heard any cracks. In the
second roast, I heard more of first crack, and maybe I heard a few of
second, but I'm not sure.
The smell yesterday was a little different from most other coffees,
but not that much. This morning when I opened the ziplock, the smell
was pretty funky. I really didn't know what to expect in the cup. But
it made a really nice cup of coffee with the Aeropress.
Sorry no detailed flavor analysis, but it was tasty.

Happy Birthday Brett!  Hey at least it isn't snowing in Iowa!  So now
that you are older can we attribute that sly wit to memory loss yet?
Since I am not there to give you birthday swats, I figured a good barb
would suffice.

Happy Birthday Brett!
Too bad you didn't roast the Nayarit 4 or 5 days ago for a more developed
complex cup for your BD Sunday morning:-) But at least you didn't grind it
really coarse and press pot infuse it for 10 minutes <-- (That was a
sarcasm alert...Typed drinking a first cup of the morning properly rested
City++ Panama Maunier.)

Made my day!  I was thinking the same thing about resting the coffee - alas
I never plan ahead enough...  The coffee I HAD PLANNED went on a campout
this weekend with my wife, leaving me scrambling at the end...
Note to friends: REST YOUR COFFEE
  (Note to adversaries: Try FOULGERS)
Cheers,
Brett

And since it's your bd will forgive the continued html posts:-)
