This morning is the Colombia Choco - El Carmen del Atrato.  Incredible
raisin sweetness in the cup.
I hope your son does well, Bob!  Do let us, your extended family know.

Sounds like a couple winners ... I am enjoying the Peru FTO Cuzco myself.
Wishing you luck on the converts and your son on the fencing.

Yesterday & today I had espressos & Americanos made with Guatemalan
Antigua -- Finca Retana yellow bourbon. Rested a little over a week.
Roasted in a Z&D, a bit further than I had intended, touching on a
Vienna roast. It was a happy accident: so-so in a press pot but it's
wonderful as a SO espresso shot.

Kenya PB... a coffee that seems to be deteriorating with rest.  today it
seemed to mellow a bit, which i didn't like.  I like it for the ludicrously
outrageous acidity in the freshie on little rest... i'll make another FP of
it this afternoon and see if my morning cup deceived me...bill

Exquisite caps consisting of Daterra Farms Yellow Bourbon, Horse Lot 17406,
a nutty Brasillian, and fresh heavy cream. The windows are being rattled by
"Coming Back to Life". It's very nice reveling in this moment.

Wow! Tony finished in the top eight in the Midwest Sections today, 
qualifying him to go to the Summer Nationals in San Jose. He lost to an 
arch rival with gorilla length arms.
I am now the official coffee supplier to the Minnesota Division of the 
US Fencing Association. Means I do coffee for at least one tournament a 
year. And I have orders for three pounds of coffee.
All around a great day.

Since my Yemen Mokha Sharasi and also my Monkey Blend haven't rested enough,
I ended up having three Black Cat espresso followed by two BC cappaccino for
my Sunday morning.

Not the greatest coffee day here, but still far better than any of the 
"used grounds" stories I just read!  I started the morning with some 
Sumatran Mandheling, roasted to FC+in the popper 9 days ago and brewed 
via French press.  Good cup but definitely flatter than when I first 
tried it off a couple day's rest last weekend.
At my son's First Communion party this afternoon I served up some 
Indonesian Flores Bajawa Highlands and some Costa Rica Coop Libertad WP 
Decaf, both FC+ after 3 days' rest, hoping to convert some friends and 
family to the cause.  Think I may have won one convert out of six coffee 
drinkers present, my sister-in-law who liked the flavor intensity of the 
French-pressed Indonesian, but having had some myself I think that had 
more to do with the raw intensity of the brew (2T coffee per 6 oz. 
water) than various flavor subtleties, since I somehow botched the 
storage.  I had stored the Indonesian in one of those zip-loc bags with 
CO2 valve, and made sure to seal the zip all right, but when I could 
smell the coffee before even opening the bag I rightly knew it would not 
be on a par with other first helpings of roasts I'd stored in Mason 
jars.  Oh well, that just gives me an alibi, er, rationale for another 
outdoor popper roasting session soon, in between work and my older boys' 
baseball games/practices, that is!

the Treasure Trove.
Puro Scuro, Liquid Amber, Classic Italian Espresso and more Moki's Farm
Kona. More Green Stripe, Uganda and PCE 1800mtrs+.
My first-ever roast of Puro Scuro this morning. Two hours later, nap time
was over because I only had 7g - 8g of the Costa Rica roast left, period.
With the grinder set at 17.5, everything was right. This was the first 15g
shot I ever brewed. 14g usually overflows the filter, and I waste a little
bit overboard. That's for the birds.
I've noticed that the grounds settle down very nicely when I tap the filter
with a table spoon as it's filling under the chute. This time, I measured
out 15g into the Zip Loc for the flash freeze.
When I ground it, I tapped the filter basket continuously and got the whole
load into the basket. It tamped down a little, but the vibration had already
settled it down a lot. If a clod persists, the tip of the spoon breaks up.
What Flavor!! I ran the buzzer pump for 26 seconds with no blonding
whatsoever. Pure crema from the spouts. Just tore another page out of my *Don't
Know* book.
Should I register for Roasting 102, or Brewing 102? I like this SM
correspondence school!
Cheers, Mabuhay -RayO, aka Opa!
Got Grinder?

Ray,
am I correct in thinking that this is the box that has been lost for
weeks/months in the move?  The box that has been bemoaned as much as the box
containing the heat gun and the BM???  If so, congratulations on your find!
 happy roasting!  now find the HG and give that freshie a rest!
