I just finished my first cup of Brazil Moreninha Formosa, roasted on
Thursday (it's Saturday noon here).  Talk about body...my cappuccino
was like drinking a cup of cream.  Chocolaty and rich, and now I'm
going to go make a couple more.
What's in your cup?

I am indulging in Ethiopia Idido Misty Valley and will be roasting some
Brazil Yellow Bourbon and Yemen Mokha Sana ani.  I will be roasting enough
to get me through next weekend since I will be moving on Friday.

Yesterday I roasted 160g of Nicaragua: Pacamara Peaberry to full
city+, and today I roasted 200g of Kona: Moki's farm to a nice city+.
Those should be enough to last me a few days.

NOT what you asked, but maybe implied, but I am roasting the last of 
my liberica.  Also, not arabica.

That sounds good. Maybe I'll roast some it tomorrow. I've really been
enjoying it.

My humble apologies for not asking my question properly; it was not
intented to exclude anyone from the discussion of coffee and I
sincerely hope it did not offend.  I shall rephrase:
Which of the tempter's  selection of fine arabicas, fine robustas,
fine liberica, goo goo muck arabica (a.k.a. Thumbs Down!) or any other
currently or previously offered green coffees are you roasting,
indulging in this weekend?  If you are indulging in the tempter's
craft-roasted coffees, please let us know about that too.
Respectfully,
Eddie

I'm drinking my go-to coffee today, Moka Kadir. It became my go-to for 
several reasons:
1) I can always get it--year in year out
2) I like it from basically no rest (4 hours or so) until it's gone 
(which is never more than a week or so around here). It's not the same 
throughout that period, but it is very good coffee all the way through.
I roast a whole bunch of coffees, but my work schedule is crazy, and 
making time to roast is sometimes a problem. With something I really 
don't have to rest in my closet, I don't end up with coffee-less days. I 
also have some Blue Batak taking a nap. I'll have that tomorrow.
It's funny, MK has been a standard in my house for a long time, yet this 
does not mean I am done exploring its possibilities. A couple of weeks 
ago, I tried extending the time between first and second crack by a full 
minute. In the bread machine/heat gun, making that kind of adjustment is 
relatively easy. Now with four minutes between the cracks, I have truly 
altered the taste--and in a good way. I usually go about 20 seconds into 
second crack with MK, pulling the roast before there is any oil visible 
oil on the beans.

I almost missed out on this coffee because I have been focused on 
tasting SO coffee from all the different places SM offers. But after 
reading Tom's description, I HAD to try it. Boy am I glad I did! This 
is what really caught my attention:
"My purpose here is to offer a precisely blended coffee I love, and 
save you from buying the coffees separately. The Yemeni, Sidamo and 
Ghimbi coffees we use for our Moka Kadir are stocked just for the 
blend, which makes it hard (well, impossible) for you to recreate 
this though; and I feel the coffees need to be pre-blended and 
equalize moisture content with each other, something that works well 
in large batches."

I have Yemen Mokha Sana'ani at my house in town, and I have Costa Rica 
Vino de Arabia out here in the country. These are two of my favorite 
coffees, so it's like a treat. :)

I'm doing FIFO stash attack/ reduction right now. There's about a pound of
Brazil Fazenda Ipanema. At FC+, 10 + days, it's just superb. I'll try
withdrawing 100g from the BM after a lazy run through 1st Crack/ same
mid-pre 2nd/ Start 2nd/ Start rolling 2nd Crack.
I still have Fivers of some more recent Ethiopian Harars- Lot 30, Green
Stripe, and Sumatra Mandailing. All in good time. Due to one of my client's
fuse and contactor proclivities on a lathe and the resulting power problems,
I have more wherewithal this week.
I have to start a coffee fund so I don't commingle finances. I Could visit
The Tempter shortly, much as I don't really need to, yet.
Ah, where's the fun in abstinence. Got a nickel- spend a nickel. Shoes and
dry cleaning can wait!

Just got back from gigs in Rockford tonight and  Detroit Friday  
night, where we were graciously hosted overnight by Paul Goelz and  
his wife Cindy; Paul served us some Yemen Mokha Sana'ani at FC+,  
right "in the pocket" at 3-4 days post-roast. Made a great s.o. shot  
(straight and cappa) as well as drip.  The intense and chocolatey  
taste sustained me the entire drive to Rockford today!

Dearest James,
Who said I own two homes??? "Out here in the country" refers to my 
PARENTS' house, where I've been living since I moved back to Minnesota 
from Southern California after going through a divorce. My son and I 
have been living here with them until I was able to buy my own house, 
which I was just able to do. (That is the one in town.)
So you're actually JEALOUS of a single mom living with her parents?!! 
LOL!!! Sounds like you have a huge chip on your shoulder, with disdain 
for anyone you perceive to have more than you do. What a great attitude. 
(Even if I did have two homes, so what? Why is that so reprehensible?) 
Frankly, I don't care about any of that stuff as long as I'm comfortable.
Nobody else in my family drinks coffee, so I need to have my own beans 
and equipment if I want anything. Since I'm working on MY house, which 
is in town, I need to have coffee at both places. It's a lot easier than 
dragging it around with me since they're about ten miles apart.
Sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not the rich snob you have wrongly 
assumed. Grow up!
Cheers,
Sheila
