Topic: Easter Morning Cup? (18 msgs / 360 lines)
1) From: Ken B
I am enjoying a nice blend of 22 gr Sumatra Classic Mandheling @ FC+, 22 
gr Sulawesi Enrakang Mount Alla @ FC, and 13 gr IMV @ C+, drip.  Very 
nice bittersweet chocolate, full, rich, balanced body that fills the 
palate, an inherent sweetness, with hints of spice and fruit.  Best I 
can do on description, since my tongue is also still asleep. ;-)
I hope you all enjoy your morning cup as much as I am enjoying mine!

2) From: Rich M
Got to be in to work early today, so I'm bringing a full thermos of  
Ethiopian IMV @ FC, rested about 4 days which I find almost mandatory  
with this bean. Smooooth, chocolatey goodness. Makes working on  
Easter bearable.

Over roasted IMV...the last roast that got away from me due to the SC/TO arm
debacle...which I have all worked out now.  Sadly this was the last of my
IMV.
did a 50/50 with the aged Sumatran yesterday that was pretty good...gotta
roast today...
Just froze my butt off looking for eggs with the kids!
My 8 year old is starting to ask the "pointed questions that make me cringe
at the thought of her losing this magical beliefs in Santa and the EB.
Love being home for the holidays!

19* this morn. This month has had many cool mornings(low 20s) with
days in the low 40s, great for maple sugaring. This morning it's a
capp.  Brazil Soa Joao with a bit of Sidamo and El Sal.Pacamara. And a
few drops of fresh maple syrup in the frothed milk.

Guatemala Fraijanes Agua Tibia, from the last batch of my 5 pound bag. :(
I wanted to roast something really special for Easter.

Yirga Cheffe Konga roasted yesterday morning.  I just can't let this stuff
sit.  In about 7 minutes we'll find out how much lemony flavors this cup
contains on 24 hr rest.  I'm hoping a lot!!!bill

A few lemony notes, not many.  Hoping that more come out in 2 days...  I
might have missed the roast on this one, gone too long, but it shouldn't
be... so we'll see...
Happy Easter!

9) From: Les
I am enjoying a very complex cup of Kenya Gethumbwini from the new
offering.  This is one of the better "Wini" offerings.  It starts out with a
very crystal clear like brightness, not a hint of sour (you really do need
to follow Tom's instructions and take it right up to the beginning of second
crack.)  That nice high note descends into a wonderful red grape, followed
by blackberry, descending into currant.  The finish is a nice sweet
caramel.  This is a pleasant change from many of the chocolate finishes I
have been drinking of late.  The lingering aftertaste has a hint of leather
and is nice and sweet.  This is one worth putting on the next order.

10) From: Sandy Andina
PR Yauco Selecto, 3/18 C+ roast, Aeropress.  Woke up, though, with a  
cup of Green Mt. Vt. Country Blend at the lobby breakfast buffet. (As  
hotel coffees go, it's pretty good--inexplicably, though, the in-room  
filter packs are--yecch--Maxwell House; so I will have to work pretty  
hard with the Zass Turkish to grind up a pot's worth of homeroast if I  
am to use the in-room drip machine).

11) From: Kris McN
Mornin' All,
I'm drinking a moka pot brew of Costa Rican Naranjo Caracol Peaberry.
Nothing to knock your socks off, just a plain, old, well-balanced, pleasant
cup of coffee.  I'm going to put a KMB pot of the IMV + YB on next.
Sean - that breaks my heart!  Both that you're out of IMV and that your kids
are moving out of the Santa/EB stage.  This is our first year we're hiding
eggs and I can't wait for the hunt!  My 3-year old is completely credulous.
In fact, we had to have a long discussion last night about whether or not
monsters would find the eggs first and take them back to their homes.
Happy Easter!

Enjoying a cup of SM Hawaii Kona Kolwali Farm roasted to C+ rested for 5 
days.  Absolutely smooth and delicious.  Can't wait for my 5# of Kona 
Purple Mountain.

About time you got out of bed! Oh wait, it's a Christian holiday ... why
aren't you at church, thumping in time with the rest of your brethren?

Our Easter morning coffee is the most amazing cup  (read cups) of high grown
Kona coffee I have ever drank.  It goes to number 2 of my personal all time
favorite coffees.  It is some of the coffee Mike was kind enough to give up
for us to share.  Mike your advice on roasting gave a perfect cup.
My son's favorite college memories are from the year of botany studies he
did on the big island.  This was bought for him to wallow in memories.  It
worked he is going around with the most spiritual look on his face.
Thanks

Imagine my surprise this morning when I went out to collect eggs. Half a
dozen of them were brightly colored! The neighbor kids sure gave me a
chuckle.
Enjoyed a 50/50 cup of Bali Kintamani / Kenya Kirinyaga-Thimu. Unctuous on
the tongue.
Happy Easter!

My  Easter morning cup was made in a mocha pot over camp a stove; it was El
Salvador Orange Bourbon at just City (but in the woods ;).
Not bad at all.
But it was better Friday morning in the Thermos brand french press in the
camp. Both followed by furious cleaning up and packing of tents so we could
get on to the days' activities and to the next site. Easter morning-- that
was down to the lake for a few pictures of the kids looking nice and then
off to the church service, lunch and home.
Friday was off on the bikes on the tough mountain bike loop and then down to
the incredible rock Pedernales Falls.
Saturday... well, there was no room in the campground so we had to stay at
the inn in Dublin, TX, home of the most incredible Dr. Pepper ever, so
Saturday's coffee was horrible dreck from a donut place. But it was followed
by incredible "Imperial Sugar" Dr. Pepper of Dublin instead of the corn
syrup sodas you get everywhere else.
The highlight (coffee-wise) of the trip was the stop at JP's Java in Austin.
The large (20oz) Clover-made cup of Excellence Nicaragua was exceptionally
smooth and tasty. I think it was roasted Full City plus. The finish as it
cooled down (after eating chicken on the tailgate and walking about for some
pictures) was very lemony, almost like lemonade was mixed in. It cost me
nearly $5 for that cup... I kept thinking-- I could have almost bought a
pound of Nicaragua cup of excellence from Tom for this!

Don't think I've been there. But, if you ever swing up to the Marble 
Falls area, we have a coffee shop that does pretty good called "The Java 
Bean." I wouldn't recommend their espresso, but they do roast their own 
coffee fresh. I've had some pretty good cups from them, as well as a few 
stinkers. I bought roasted beans from them shortly before discovering 
home roasting, and have had chats with the owner, who wants to get 
together with me sometime to share coffee. :)
