Topic: Thanks Tom for selling a "great" coffee experience! (4 msgs / 110 lines)
1) From: Mike McGinness
Hmmm, or I should say you warned me (us). I just brewed a pot of the worst coffee I've ever tasted.
Smelled bad green, smelled bad roasting, roasted beans smelled terrible after 3 days rest (vacuum
sealed so they wouldn't smell up the place), ground beans smelled worse, brewed aroma simply awful
(so bad it was hard to take a sip) and the taste. Oh the taste. Argh! I was prepared and had a cup
of C.R. La Minitia standing by.
What could I be referring to? Those simple delightful Vietnam Robusta greens Tom is offering. I
roasted them to an aggressive Full City (wasn't brave enough to roast them any lighter.) I was going
to French Press a pot for full flavor but after smelling the 3 day rested beans chose to brew in the
Krups with SG filter.
I would only serve this to my worst enemy, on second thought not even my worst enemy.
Suffice it to say I will NOT be roasting the rest of the greens and NOT brewing the rest that's
already roasted! I'm looking in the phonebook for a Toxic Waste disposal service to get rid of this
stuff properly...

Mike, You may want to do a thorough cleaning of your grinder about now, if you haven't already.

It really IS an experience. I was packing an order today and noticed 
a stick in the bag that was about 2" long and 1/4" diameter. And that 
stick probably brews a better drink than the coffee. Nonetheless, I 
really really think it is interesting to taste it, and as someone 
emailed me it doest smell so bad in the roasting or grinding stages. 
In fact, I managed to actually finish a 7 oz cup of it while Maria 
and the others all managed only a sip. I think most people would 
immediately identify the flavor though. it reminds me of every "gas 
station" cup of coffee I have ever had... anyway, if nothing else, 
save it to serve to your inlaws! (LOL)

Wow, sounds like the coffee I had this morning.  It tasted terrible, and I
couldn't figure out why.  I have been drinking La Minita for the last month.
Then I remembered, my girlfriend wanted me to make the Jamaican Blue
Mountain, so we roasted some last night and loaded the beans in the coffee
maker, which grinds and brews on a timer. Basically, if you compare JBM side
by side with a truly good coffee like La Minita you will be shocked at the
difference.
Peace,
Glen
