Topic: Blend Experiment (13 msgs / 306 lines)
1) From: Dennis & Marjorie True
Well, Since I have lots of IMV (and I REALLY Love this coffee) and I 
still have a substantial amount of the yellow Bourbon (thanks to the 
list being so generous while on deployment I am still working through 
the over 100 POUNDS I was sent) from last year I figured I'd try a 50/50 
blend at a C+.  Well I can't say what will happen after rest since I 
just got done with the roast but out of the drum the first cup is WOW!!! 
I can't wait until the blueberries really come out!
I am horrible at describing what I am tasting but I know good coffee and 
I know really good coffee and I even know GREAT Coffee well already 
beans still slightly warm to the touch as I ground them the aroma was 
overwhelming and the taste in the cup is AWESOME!!!! as it is cooling it 
is getting sweeter and more flavors are coming out with every sip....
YUMMY!!!!!!
you might want to give it a try if you have some BYB and IMV lying 
around in your stash!

Brazil Yellow Bourbon, and Idido Misty Valley... both terrific coffees...
One of the secrets of this list is you can learn all the great coffees by
watching them get discussed and praised.
Another secret of the list is that when you finally get around to ordering,
those coffees are gone...
Final secret - you'll never reproduce that one coffee you loved so much...
So if you can't drink the one you love, love the one you're with...
Couple tips,
Brett

True you have to be fickle, love em, leave em and move on. I think the
Yellow Bourbon was one of my all time favorites. I went throug 20 lbs of it
in record time.

Dennis,
Terrific blend.  When you want to stretch from it a bit .... try 50%
BYB, 25%IMV and 25% a good Sumatra such as Blue Batak.

Another secret - if you find a coffee you really like, order more and then
tell folks on the list that you like it.
Doing it backwards ends up with the beans being GONE...

And if you REALLY want to stretch from it try 40% BYB, 15%IMV, 10% Yirg'
Kochere, 10% El Sal PN, 10% MM, 10% Aged Sum'... What's that? Oh, I just
finished roasting another 6 batches totaling 18# of something like that:-)

the BYB is really shining now
Oh my cup is in heaven!
