Topic: Sunday Coffee (3 msgs / 76 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
This morning, again, my angelic bride woke we up with some Technivorm
& Swissgold brewed Colombia Antioquia - Jardin Cerulean Warbler that
was roasted last Sunday.  It is a great way to wake up, and although I
thoroughly enjoy this coffee, it just wasn't hitting the spot.
After church, I opened to coffee cabinet to see if there might be some
scraps left.  A-Ha!  Just enough Ethiopia Organic - "Menno's Misty
Valley" to brew another pot of coffee,  It was roasted to Full City
(no 2nd crack) two weeks ago, but a sniff of the jar indicated it was
still good; perhaps this will suffice.
The ground and brewed coffee emitted an intense blueberry aroma. The
aromatics of the cup rouse excitement and anticipation; orange and
blueberry dominate, but there is the slightest tease of lemon and
pepper to evoke curiosity.  In the cup, at its hottest, the orange and
blueberry are ensconced in a nicely-bodied chocolate with a subtle
note of black pepper in the finish.  As the cup cools, in balance with
the orange and blueberry, the chocolate and pepper intensify and is
reminiscent of the chocolate that I have had on ice cream in Mexican
restaurants.  A little cooler and a sweet lemon comes to life in just
the right balance that whole experience seems to evoke an emotional
response.
Spot hit.
Eddie

I had my IMV, which I described in another post, which had 3 days 
rest on it.  It came out of the very new Technivorm Moccamaster.  The 
brew was great, just still confused that I could do such a thing.  In 
my post earlier I describe how I managed to pull it off.  It still 
feels very good to me.  I so love this passion surpassing hobby, that 
when I get one really spot on I am truly excited and I want to brew 
all day and night.  As the only coffee drinker in the house that 
means I need to drink a lot of coffee.
I do have a friend coming over tonight who loves home roasted coffee 
and enjoys a pot in the evening.  No sleep issues with him.  So, 
besides a morning brew, I will have an evening brew of Costa Rica 
Asoproaaa Coop Tarrazu, a roast which is just great to sit and sip.
