Topic: Friday morning cuppa (3 msgs / 52 lines)
1) From: Gary Foster
What, no thread for this yet?
2/3 Brazilian Morenhina Formosa, FC+
1/3 Ethiopian DP Korate FC
I roasted the korate a little too dark but it's still really good.
This blend is nice and smooth, but the fruit and wildness from the
korate just isn't showing up like I thought it would.  I'll try it
50/50 tomorrow.  Probably be a REALLY good blend with the Korate at a
C+ instead.
Have to say the Formosa is a real winner for blending.  I'm just a
noob roaster and blender and make tons of mistakes, but I have fallen
in love with the formosa to anchor just about anything I experiment
and blend.  It seems to complement everything really well.  Not one of
my faves as an SO for drip, but it's awesome as an SO shot for a
cappuccino.

6 Day rested Uganda Bugisu.  Lots of Chocolate.  I was spoiled
yesterday by the Lot 2 Gesha, but this Uganda is no slouch.  Sunday I
will be pulling shots at Church again with my new grinder.  You can be
sure I will be ultra careful carrying it in.
