Try my Rocket Fuel blend:  a base of a Brazil and India Mysore, add  
some Java or Sumatra for contrast; I then add some monsooned coffee  
(currently Java as SM's out of Malabar) and finally a dollop of India  
Robusta Peaberry for backbone and crema.  Percentages: about 25/25 for  
the base, then another 15 for the contrast, 20 for the monsooned and  
top it off with the robusta.  I prefer to roast separately and blend  
afterward.

I like your blend Sandy!  I am going to have to give it a try.  I can
recommend my quad blend.  Looking at the SM site here is what I would buy
for the blend of a good Brazil; high central; an African and an Indonesian.
25% *Mexico Organic Dry-Process Nayarit Rustico; *25% *Brazil Cachoeira
Yellow Bourbon Dry-Process; *25% *Ethiopia Organic Dry-Process Golocha* and
25%  *Sumatra Blue Batak "Tarbarita" Peaberry.  *Pre-roast blend these by
weight.  Roast to a fine full-city plus (a few snaps into second crack).
Let it rest 4 days and enjoy!  With all of these being Dry-Processed
coffees, you will have a nice thick shot!

Nice call finding four diverse yet complementary coffees that can all  
take the same degree of roast.  If I ever find I can't get a monsooned  
coffee and a quality robusta, I might try it.
Today I went coffee-less for the first time in years---a little  
dietary indiscretion yesterday (tip: never have caprese panini,  
popcorn, Raisinets, Cantonese steamed oysters and Peking duck all  
within a twelve-hour period) resulted in a most uncomfortable all- 
nighter and my being on clear fluids (tea instead of coffee) most of  
the day.   It was also day 3 post-roast for my Greenline, but I  
noticed it was a very light city roast that had not developed much of  
an aroma over the rest period.  So I put it back into the Behmor and  
hit the cool button about 10 sec. into second crack.  Nice FC now,  
with a lovely aroma, and by tomorrow it should be quite usable (it did  
the lion's share of outgassing over the weekend).

popcorn, twizzlers, and eggos.
