Topic: India Anohki third round (3 msgs / 92 lines)
1) From: Les
First off, I don't understand why there is any of this great stuff left!  I
guess I should thank Tom for scaring everyone away with his description.  I
finally really nailed the roast on this round.  The first 2 days I had
awesome huckleberry flavors, descending into a nice fruit medley followed by
some nice leather and tobacco notes with a very clean finish.  The next 2
days I let it rest and came back for a blast of blueberry that went into
some nice currant notes followed by a caramel like finish. (I had to double
check to make sure I hand not mixed up the IVM!  Today on day 7, I am
enjoying an awesome anise beginning with a decent into mango and a very nice
sweet grape like finish.  No barnyard in this batch!  So here are some
lessons learned.  First crack doesn't begin on this one like an arabica.  It
starts about 10 degrees higher.  Second you have to stretch your roast after
second crack (4 minutes for me on the USRC) and stay out of second crack.  I
also ramped up fairly fast on this one.  I have two fears.  First this is
moving so slow, Tom won't offer it again or two, there won't be any left
when I go to order again.  For those who home roast to explore the nuances
of coffee , you really ought to give this one a try!  So I will make you the
following offer.  If you buy a 2 pounder and have it sent to me, I will
roast it for you in my USRC half kilo roaster and send you a pound and a
half (green weight) and keep a half pound for myself to cover my shipping
and bagging costs.  Please contact me off list if you want to get in on this
deal.  I didn't ask Tom's permission to do this, but I think it is OK.  I
see it as a triple win situation.

I'm in the car with you on this bean, Les. I find it awesome! Especially =
as a blend. As a single origin, it stands out as well!

Yes, I noticed that recently. Was surprised a bit that it was still there.
If it is still there on my next order, I'll definitely consider that 
one, as it would be interesting to see the difference now that I have 
the Behmor to roast in. I had some good results with the wok, strong 
huckleberry flavors. Held off before due to lack of funds, but that is 
changing...so, watch out! ;)
