Topic: Liquid Amber Espresso Blend (11 msgs / 396 lines)
1) From: Larry Williams
I just started roasting the espresso blends and bought a pound each of 
the Monkey, Italian, and Liquid Amber blends.  The outcome was that I 
love the Monkey and Italian, but the Liquid Amber is thumbs down.
Rather than throw it away (~12 oz) I thought I would offer it in trade 
to someone on the list.  Any interest?

Is it the Monsooned Malabar in there that you don't like? I've found  
it doesn't like to be roasted past City+ but needs to be brewed hot.

I don't know.  It's the SM blend.  We just don't like the pungent 
flavor.  I roasted it to Vienna.  Perhaps I will try a cup in the 
morning - since it has rested for a week.

You'll get more nuances--especially caramel and more muted raisin &  
cavendish-tobacco notes--the lighter you roast it, no lighter than City 
+ and no darker than FC.

6) From: Dean
I like LA, but don't go as dark as Vienna--good strong FC+(+).  Just a 
little bit of oil starts to show up after a week or so.
Crema is about half the pour, and it's not starting to blond out yet 
before I run out of cup to pull it into.
Probably my favorite SM blend.  Moka Kadir is great too 
tho.................and Puro Scuro.  And Monkey.  I think my least 
favorite is Italian--but I like it, too.

I can't bring myself to buy Liquid Amber.  I have an aversion to robusta
even if it is the best robusta.  I don't want the increased caffeine content
for one thing but mostly it's probably just psychological since the robusta
content in LA is probably less than 10% or so (just guessing).

I brewed the LA this morning and the rest differentially made the 
difference.  Actually tastes good - the pungyness is much less, and 
other favors have come out.  It is amazing how the beans change.

Glad you gave it a chance, Larry. You'll find it seems to keep its  
freshness a few days longer than the other blends, too.  When I put  
together my Rocket Fuel blend, I was shooting for something similar-- 
the Monsooned Malabar and the little bit of premium India Robusta  
Peaberry (just enough for a darker, stabler crema--about 10%) with the  
base of Brazilian and Mysore Nuggets, plus some Sumatra or Java. Tom's  
not talking about his formula (if he told us he'd have to kill us) but  
sometime I'll get some L.A. and brew it up next to some Rocket Fuel  
and see what the differences seem to be. (I know there are no  
monsooned coffees in Metropolis Greenline or Red Line, but based on  
what falls through the Behmor's regular drum, I'd bet there's some  
Robusta Peaberry).
