Topic: A Tree Grows in India... (4 msgs / 68 lines)
1) From: Loyd Blankenship
If you haven't tried the India Mallali Estate tree-dried beans yet, I
strongly suggest doing so. In fact, I'm not hitting 'send' on this until
I've ordered some more, just in case :)
I roasted some to FC+ this morning, and just tried a cup. I made a
double-shot and turned it into an americana with another 2.5 oz of hot
water. It's creamy, and has an incredible balance. Heresy perhaps, but I
think it's better than the Aida.

Lloyd,
The Malalai is great stuff.  I wouldn't call it better than the Aida, just
different.  I would have to agree with you that it is one of the best if not
the best DP coffee I have had.  That said, I just love a good India coffee.
I don't usually compare DP coffee to washed coffee as in my book they are
just too different.  I tend to like washed coffees more than Dry Processed
so I would have to disagree with you,and Aida will continue to occupy my
number one position.  Isn't it a good thing that we don't all like the same
thing?

Great to know!  I have I think 2 lbs in the stash and haven't tried any yet, but now I am thinking I will go and roast some right now!  I have been thinking to myself that I will really enjoy this one anyway, just from the description, and then you helped verify it for me!  Can't wait to roast and try some.

I've been drinking that this past week myself. Yep, a darn right nice 
cup of java. I think my first roast hit the sweet spot better, but still 
great.
I did think about ordering more of it with this last order, but there 
were just too many I wanted to try. Actually, I broke down and ordered 
some IMV, for the first time. Box just arrived today, I may have to 
roast some of that up soon, like tomorrow. :) Definitely by Saturday.
So many beans, so little time!
