Topic: Monday morning cuppa (10 msgs / 218 lines)
1) From: Gary Foster
Can't believe I haven't seen a monday morning cuppa thread yet.
Today is my first deliberate attempt at blending.  I blended 2/3
Brazilian Morenhina Formosa at FC+ and 1/3 Costa Rican Finca Tono Miel
at a C+ or a light FC and made myself a monday morning cappuccino.  I
have blended beans before, but that was more a "let's just
experiment".  This is my first "Here's my bean stash, what am I going
to roast and blend and how am I going to do it" move.
VERY nice cappuccino.  I pull triple ristrettos and the shot was
almost solid crema.  The brazilian has this caramel milk chocolate
explosion... the costa rican pulls a high bright fruited note into the
mix without being overpowering.  One of my best caps in a while.  Too
bad I'm almost out of the miel :)

2) From: Scott Bukofsky
This morning I had a cup of Brazil Poco Fundo roasted to City+ in the Gene
Cafe on Friday.  I love this coffee, and generally roast it at least to Full
City for espresso (primarily) and drip (sometimes).  I figured I would try
something different and roast it lighter this time around.
The result is a good coffee but not a great one.  I find the body somewhat
thin, with nutty and fruity notes that are more muted than many other DP
coffees.   While it is enjoyable enough, this bean really soars at darker
roast levels.  It was an interesting change of pace, though.

Roasted some Columbia Huila Valencia FC/FC+  on 20 July. It has been okay to
pretty good. This morning I opened three canisters and sniffed each trying
to decide which to brew. I saw oil on the Colombian, looked at the date, and
figured I'd better use it up before it went rancid. Ground 33 grams and
brewed two mugs in the chemex. Boy oh boy! If anyone bought too much of it,
I'd be interested in getting some more.

This morning I had the last of the Kona Moki's Farm.  A very enjoyable cup
ground with the Zass and brewed in the TV.  A very nice cup of coffee.  All
the complexity of a Kona and very nice aftertaste, clean and crisp.  I have
some Idido Misty Valley resting, and I sitll have some of the Columbian 4
star that will be up to bat tomorrow.

Well this morning it a 12 hour old cup of Nicaragua Limoncillo Java at  
a City +. I was craving something lighter/brighter yesterday so this  
was my solution. I have had this before and really like it. Put  
unfortunately I do not have Tom's pallet and can not name the flavors.  
But it has good mouth feel, bright taste and changes as it cools.
While enjoying this cup I was reading about $B new purchase of the  
company that makes the Clover coffee maker ($11,000 a pop). I am  
posting the story and there is a video clip that goes with it. Very  
interesting that $B thinks this machine that requires a individual  
operator, bean specific brewing profile, and let not forget good beans  
will help them.

This morning was the last of my roasted Columbian 4-star El Roble. I starte=
d drinking it 12 or so hours after roasting and now I'm on about 4 days res=
t. I brewed it in a pourover, vacuum pot and french press. All stages were =
good, however the fruit really emerged after a couple days rest. Glad I sti=
ll have a half pound left.
Need to do some roasting tonight. I'm moving on Friday so I'll need coffee =
to get me through the week and then enough to last the weekend while I'm un=
packing. Not sure what I want to drink the next couple days, but I'll proba=
bly roast some Yemen for the weekend. By the time I get around to brewing i=
t should be nice and rested.

this combination.....
