Topic: Great After Work Shot Blend (3 msgs / 52 lines)
1) From: mirrera
I was ready for a shot when I came home from work today, and managed to resist the temptation to use Mike's Ohana blend, as it's only on 4 days rest (quick shipping to MA, too). 
So, I used up the last bit of some Brazil Moreninha Formosa, which was about 8 grams, and filled the rest of it in with India Mysore Nuggets, making about a 50/50 blend for a 17 gr shot.  Both were on 10 days rest, roasted with HG/DB to a FC, with little to no oil showing.
Pulled a 2 oz, 28 second shot at 95 degrees into a Bodum shot glass.  Crema was about 90% initially, with a good amount of Guinnessing (clear shot glasses are great fun).  I let it settle a little, and took a sip, and it was amazing.  I'm not going to call it a god shot, but maybe some lesser deity was involved.
The taste is a deep dark semi-sweet chocolate, with a bit of nut (peanut?), and a caramel finish, too, which I can still taste.  Not much going on in the fruit department, but with those two beans, I kind of expected the chocolate bomb.
Unfortunately, that was the last of that Brazilian for me, or I might have intentionally blended these again.  In any case, a good, if not completely intentional, end to the work day.

The Kona Moki's Farm, Ethiopian Harar Green Stripe, and this morning's
Steinway of Uganda AA Bugisu all cry out for me to snag the Capresso thingy
ASAP. Except for the Kona, they're Fivers, thanks to the ravings of some
lunatic on the list.
Thankfully, I had the old/ new stash in different locations in the pantry,
and I've found the earliest coffee box already. No Vietnamese yet- that was
my first 10 pound purchase and I've been fond of it, both as espresso and
drip once I learned how to roast it and not age it ad infinitum.
There is no such thing as excess stash. To claim otherwise is to be
unfamiliar with the benefit of not claiming otherwise.
Cheers, Mabuhay -RayO, aka Opa!
