Topic: Cameroon Caplami Estate Coffee (3 msgs / 50 lines)
1) From: Steve
To open, WOW.
I roasted this coffee to, according to cracks is Vienna, but I think I
hit more realistically FC+.
Before the grind, the coffee had a distinct spicy scent to it, which
was my first indication that I would really like it.  Coming out of
the grinder, the spice was enhanced, the aroma almost too strong to
process--overwhelming.  So I poured it into my AP and brewed a nice
short 10-20 second batch right off the boil.  The aroma of the cup hot
almost got me worried, there was a very powerful black pepper aroma
that didn't seem it would be good in the cup.  Well, the drink was
actually wonderful.  A bunch of caramel sweetness in the cup
complemented the spiced and earthy tones in the aroma.  It was like a
spicy Sumatra Mandelhing.  Yummy!

Awesome stuff!  I cannot believe it is still in stock!  Thankfully,
the Behmor arrived with another pound of it.

I have some to try tonight (working the midnight to 7 am shift, so we are slower and there is plenty of time for tasting and sampling) and am looking forward to doing so!
