For me it's El Salvador Yellow Bourbon, at a Full City roast and on 4 days

Mine is Costa Rica SHB, under-roasted at City- and then retoasted to FC+++
Tastes solid but a tad charred.  Not so much that it is offensive, but
Kingsford Charcoal is one of the nuancial flavors introduced....
My Sumatra Blue Bata and Sulawesi TOarco arrived yesterday, so soon I will
have a different and better answer

8) From: Ken Mary
Peru. I have not bought any Peru coffees for a few years, wanting to focus
on other origins. I am always amazed at the extreme spiciness. I used a
slightly longer city profile where the brightness does not overpower the
spice. The exact same profile was used on the previous Costa Rica roast. One
flavor that stood out in the Costa Rica was coffee-caramel candy, an
extremely rare flavor in my roasts. This flavor brought back old childhood
memories. I will be looking for some coffee candy next shopping trip.

Brazil coromandel....to FC+....espresso. Made on the behmor at P1. I'm not sure I liked it but I don't know if it was the roast or the bean or the shot. A little burnt for my tastes. will try a better pull later.

Dean I'm finding that a darker roast on P1 can have a bit of radiant
scorching possibly giving you a bit of the burnt taste.

Guatemala, Retana Yellow Bourbon, in Krups Moka Brew, City+, nice but just a
bit too bright for the KMB - will take it a little longer next roast.
I gave up on the KMB several months ago - was getting off-flavors like
burned rubber, despite through cleaning - decided to try again - and the
"new" one works just great!  It needed to work well - my 2-yr-old Presto
Sandi gave up the ghost a few weeks ago.  Considered the Technivorm but
decided to veer away from automatic drippers for a while.  Tried the French
Press for a couple of weeks, then picked up a barely used KMB, which is now
my primary method.

Great question!  First cup: a bright and blueberry IMV at C+ after 6 days
rest.  Second cup: a dull and lifeless IMV at C+ after 6 days rest that I
stalled right at the beginning of 1st crack.  Only drank 1 cup (of 2
produced) because it was bad and I had been caffeinated enough.  Oh, press
pot on both.bill

Morning cups from the Krups Moka Brew.

Tom tasted apricot and cinnamon in it.  To me, it just tasted really _GOOD_.

IMV for my morning cup, S'bux Espresso Regalo in my cappa (passably  
good for that), the last of my Yemen Mokha Sana'ani in a shot.  
Anxiously awaiting the outgassing of this morning's roast of my  
remaining 12 oz. of Greenline (time to mix up some more Rocket Fuel  
Blend and reorder some of the components)--may have to buy 1/4 lb. of  
roasted Redline to bridge the gap between the last of the Regalo and  
the "ready date" of the Greenline (Redline's green DIY sibling).

Ok, I'll bite.
Last night with dinner I had an Americano made with Ethiopian
Yergacheffe taken to a city roast (it was an experiment with Miss
Silvia).  Was actually pretty good, which surprised me.  I didn't
think it would stand up as an espresso shot in an Americano at all.
Wasn't the best I've ever made but it definitely did surprise me and I
finished it with a smile on my face.
This morning I had a cappa made with Intelligentsia Black Cat roasted
on the 28th of feb and some microfoamed organic milk (love my Silvia).
 Wow that black cat is chewy.
Then I had a cup of Kenyan AA Lenana, taken to a french roast 3 days
ago.  (my second roast ever).  My wife demanded peets.  She's a
philistine.  I took the Kenyan in to work since she doesn't appreciate
it.

First thing this morning, a double Americano of Guatemala Finca Aqua 
Tibia, FC, prepared in my new La Spaziale Vivaldi II.  LOVE THE 
VIVALDI II -- surprisingly, it had the WAF to get approved over a 
Brewtus II or an Andreja Premium.  I'm glad!
Then, I fixed a 12-cup drip pot of Costa Rica Tarrazu La Minita, C+, 
prepared in my new Cuisinart BrewCentral (I killed my old one on 
Tuesday morning).  I  routinely split the pot between a 16 oz 
Zojirushi Tuff Slim vac bottle (from SM), a 16 oz POS vac bottle (to 
be replaced by another Zojirushi that shipped today), my 16 oz Bodum 
SS travel mug and a little left for my "getting dressed" cup of coffee.
By the way, with a BrewCentral, don't forget to put the brew carafe 
into the coffee maker.  Otherwise, you end up with a drip-model 
percolator -- the drip filter overflows into the water reservoir!
The Bodum SS travel mug is the one SM used to carry before it was 
discontinued.  It looks like Bodum has resurrected this mug.

This morning, the 7th, I had 2 cups of the same coffee. The first cup was
Tom's roasted (this Monday) Rwanda Gkongoro Nyarusiza that I received
yesterday,using my AP. My second cup was a cup of the same that I roasted
last night in my air popper, then brewed this morning, also using the AP.
I wanted to compare the tastes just to see how my home roasts are (been
roasting since April or May and haven't tried anything but my own stuff). I
can happily say that I could taste some similarity between the two, even
though mine was only about 12 hours of rest. With Tom's batch, I think that
I could tasted just a "hint" of the cherry flavor that is listed on the
package. I haven't been able to do that much at all, so there is some hope,
I think.

Today was a bad day.  I'm saving the last of my homeroast for the weekend,

Looking forward to a pot of homeroasted Kona tomorrow morning...

I got up at the crack of darkness- no glow of streetlights reflected back up
to the cloud bottoms by fresh fallen snow. (Another 4 letter word) Then it
struck me- So What?
I wouldn't have had to shovel for nearly a half dozen houses anyway. There
was no snow so I hadn't shoveled last night, the happy conclusion to a So
Happy It's Thursday.
Roasting was necessary, because I had only 6g of Uganda Bugisu in the can
(Mason jar.) A batch of Ethiopian Harar Green Stripe in the Fresh Roast made
for a 6g/ 6g blend for a great 8oz mug from the TechniVorm. A 16oz Steinway
of the Green Stripe alone will light up the evening and the morning.
Cheers, Mabuhay -RayO, aka Opa!

I'm finishing up the last of these beans as well, Les. Lovely beans. 
Huge though when roasted, aren't they?
The best coffee I had all week though was when I had not quite enough 
IMV for a full pot, and rounded it out with 25% Pacamara rested for 2 
days. It was a happy accident, but one I will definitely repeat if the 
new crop of the Pacamara Peaberry comes in before the I finish up my IMV.

 Roasted a half pound for a friend who, it turns out, was able to correctly

my blue batak, but then he gave it back to me... on 3 weeks, i was worried
about staleness...but it was great, very dense body!bill
