Topic: blueberries in the Bada Budan (6 msgs / 202 lines)
1) From: Kelly Wilson
With all of the recent talk about blueberries---I roasted some India  
Baba Budan about 5 days ago. This morning in a swissgold filtered cup  
crazy strong blueberries--both in the cup and in the grinder. The  
smell coming off the ground beans was deep and lovely super ripe  
blueberries--almost shocking. I roasted it in my Hottop--just a snap  
or two into second crack. A little lighter than my usual. Can't give  
you the details without plugging in the HTP and getting the minutes at  
each temp. Nope, I don't keep, or need a log. I am just a coffee  
wanderer with no particular need for an every single time reproducible  
roast. Anyhow, my coffee drinking daughter loved it. My non-coffee  
drinking daughter (who mysteriously loves the smell of coffee, but not  
he taste) loved the smell. My wife is a tea drinker, so no reaction  
there except and emphatic "no, I do not want to taste your coffee." I  
don't suppose I will ever truly understand tea drinkers. Anyway, it  
was yummy and I wonder if anyone else has run into this.
kindly,
Kelly

I have never tried the Baba Budan and I went to check to see if it is  
still available. It is NOT. If it was still available I may have  
ordered some to see if I could get some blueberry.

I'm sure Kelly ordered the last of it before he posted this review. Or =
at least I hope he did...
My wife, Lea, is a tea drinker in the same manner I am a coffee drinker. =
She's very passionate about it with a very large collection of pots, =
cups, platters, infusers and a drawer of roughly 50 teas she can choose =
from. She does enjoy the occasional cup of decaf froo-froo coffee and =
will always taste my brew of the moment.
Not too long ago I posted her response after tasting the most recent =
brew. She commented she'd need to start drinking caffeine again to enjoy =
the broad selection I keep on hand. For Easter Brunch this morning, I =
brewed up a Chemex of Sumatra Classic Mendheling.
A digression: I've been playing with the Chemex much more lately to nail =
it down. I've had one since Christmas and haven't used it much in favor =
of the French Press. The most significant difference right off the bat =
is the Chemex allows the coffee aroma to fill the house while the FP is =
a closed brewing method with little air born aroma.
Back to the story: I poured myself a cup and put the rest into an =
insulated caraffe, and was about to brew Lea and my mother in law =
(another who has given up caffeine) some decaf. They said no, they'd =
rather have what they could smell. I pointed out it was caffinated, but =
they wanted it because it smelled so good. WOOHOO! And they drank every =
drop. I have to brew some more...
I'll still keep some Sweet Maria's decaf on hand to take a cuppa to bed =
and actually sleep.
Kelly, maybe the aroma will break her willpower one day...

Nope. In fact I just made a small order to get me through to the new  
crop yemens. The Bada Budan was new to me, so I only ordered a  
pound.....sigh. So it goes, like I said, I am a coffee wanderer. I  
enjoy them as they come. Don't think my wife will change her mind. 28  
plus years of smelling fresh ground beans and she just barely  
tolerates the smell--never mind the taste. Now my middle daughter Emma  
(the one who likes the smell), she may come around. Sarah, my little  
one, she is down with me totally on the coffee--matching espresso  
monkey t-shirts and all.  Her favorite so far this year has been the  
tree dried (dad likes it too). Unfortunately, that interesting lot is  
now history too.
happy trails,
Kelly

Hum, I've got about 3-4 pounds of it in the cabinet, I think 3 since I'm 
recall roasting 2 pounds before. But can't say I've run into blueberry 
flavors. But, you've definitely caused me to want to take another look 
at my roasting profile for it to see if I can repeat your results.
Maybe the Behmor will make it easier to find that sweet spot. (One on 
the way)
