Topic: OT: I'm back and On Topic Two Interesting coffees (9 msgs / 307 lines)
1) From:
Back in march I got off of the list because we were moving to va and I had a
big project to take care of. The project is over we are in MI and life is
far less crazy so I am back.
On topic,  Got two coffees I am now crazy about first is the Indian tree
dried natural.  Roasted just before 2nd crack  in my mind it is almost as
good as the misty valley, smooth flavorful without being two bright.
Second is the aged Sumatra, not something I would drink every day but
roasted a bit into second crack but before the beans start to get oily it is
a funky brooding cup with some strange flavors.  I have also used this in an
espresso blend (50% Malabar 25% aged Sumatra and 25% Harrar.  What an
interesting shot
Anyway greetings from the snow

Hi, David.
Welcome back. Where are you in MI? Grand Rapids is home for me.
I love the aged Sumatra. Thanks for the reminder; I need to roast some.

David,
Are you referring to the current aged sumatra that SM stocks "Aged Sumatra
Grade One Lintong" or the previous one, "Aged Sumatra Mandheling - '04
Crop"?
I'm almost out of '04 crop and I'm looking forward to trying the Lintong.

8) From:
I am referring to the previous offering the '04 crop.  My next order (soon I
hope) will include the grade one, if it is still available.

9) From:
It is a great shop and the guy seems to know his stuff.  I would love to be
able to set up some sort of regular or semi regular gathering to try coffee
and discuss ideas and techniques.
I would guess any further discussion of the location could be viewed as
commercial promotion.  So if anyone in Michigan is interested in thinking
this out more please contact me off list- isemingerfamily 
I went from 80 plus hours a week at the last project to working a bit part
time and trying to finish a doctoral thesis, couple this with being highly
caffeinated I would love to be able to put something like this together
Happy roasting
david
