Topic: Odds and ends (4 msgs / 77 lines)
1) From: Slinkster
I was motivated today to do a bit of cleaning (don't ask me why, I 
hosted and cleaned up after four parties in five days, ending yesterday, 
all at other people's homes) so I went through the greens stash.  In the 
process I found several "that's not a batch" bags.  Each bean is great 
by itself but my roasting/tasting notes aren't helping me much in 
deciding how to blend this stuff up so I can use it.
So I'm hoping the Coffee Collective might have some ideas.  Comments are 
from my notes, not Tom's cupnotes.
1.  Nicaragua FTO Esteli Miraflor.  FC, fruity-sweet with an undertone 
of bittersweet choc
2.  Brazil Cachoeira da Grama Yellow Bourbon.  FC+, round, carmel and a 
hint of choc
3.  Java Government Estate Pancoer.  FC-, spicy, "brown", peanuts(?)
4.  Yemen Mokha Haimi. FC+, funky, spicy, curry(?)
5.  Colombia Narino San Lorenzo. FC, light and sweet
6.  Costa Rica Dota Tarrazu Conquistador. FC+, carmel and fruit
7.  Guat. Fraijanes Finca Aqua Tibia - FC, fruity, spicy, hint of choc
There's always the "dump it in a jar and shake it up" option but I 
suspect that will net me some pretty odd results.
Help?

At a glance, for a Mokha Java Blend, combine the Java Government
Estate Pacoer and the Yemen Mokha Haimi.

Java + Brazil + Colombia = Blend 1
Nicaragua + Yemen + Guat = Blend 2
That's what I would do - FC+
Any blend will still be wonderful!

I'll give those a try, and put the orphan bags back in the stash to 
await further developments.  I have a dwindling supply of Java Monsooned 
Arabica that I'll use to make up a potential shortage in blend #2 since 
it seems to be a pretty versatile blender.
Thanks :D
