Topic: Toasty sweetness? (7 msgs / 111 lines)
1) From: Bryan Wray
So... it's SM gift certificate redeeming time and I'm looking through the current offerings because it seems like as I create a list for my next order they all disappear before I get a chance to place it anyway (ex. Aida...).  So, I'm reading over the review for the El Salvador Yellow Bourbon and I can't say I would even know what toasty sweetness would begin to taste like, can someone expand on this a little?
Thanks

I'm not sure either, but I've never met a yellow bourbon I haven't liked!

Most of the Bourbon coffees have a "coarse" quality which is very inviting.
Yellow Bourbon is no exception. Bourbon flavors are not exactly "rustic",
but that word fits somehow. There is a "textured" effect in the mouthfeel
which evokes a sense of sweet toasted grains. For me this varietal is *
mostly* about texture, making it excellent as an espresso base and a likely
candidate for a single-origin espresso; the flavors tend to be very
balanced, with a simple, classic appeal. Your mouth may vary but I'd
recommend any of the Bourbons sold by SM. Try the Rwanda Bourbons too Those
are great!

I have had numerous Bourbons in the past (that's what made me read the review, I spotted bourbon on the list and knew i would probably like it), and I understand the "classic bourbon flavor" and all, I guess I would have just never described it as "toasty."  I think the only way to verify this in my head is going to be if I buy 5 lbs... haha... there's logic for you.

You have no idea how many times I have purchased beans to revisit the
flavors when I hear someone describe something I think I missed because I
either roasted or brewed differently from how another person on the list
did. "Logic" is the term I use for rationalizing a purchase also 
cheers,

Reveling in the moments after your first SO shot it will become obvious...
