Topic: Sunday cup Koratie DP Hawaiian Punch (5 msgs / 105 lines)
1) From: sci
Technique:
I roasted the Koratie DP to C+ in IR2, rested two days in vacuum sealed bag.
Then AP pressed 18gr fine grind with 4oz of water to make a very thick brew.
I did a slow AP technique where I stir for 15 seconds and let it sit for 30
seconds, then press. [Using a Chemex filter]
Then I added 4 oz of skim-milk steamed with organic cane sugar to accentuate
the caramelizing [Thanks Sandy for this great tip].
Then I diluted slightly to get the Goldilocks strength.
Results:
the strongest fruit juice explosion I have ever experienced in a cup of
coffee.
The fruitiness overwhelmed so much that, honestly, I could barely tell that
there was coffee in the mug.
The blueberry leaped on to my palate at first sip, but there was a kind of
Hawaiian punch cornucopia or flower nectar character to the bottom end of
the cup.
[Ok, childhood memory here: did you ever lick the little drops of nectar you
get from honeysuckle flowers when you pinch the bottom and pull the pistil
down? This coffee tastes like that nectar]
Even I would have guessed that this was some FuFu flavored coffee if I
hadn't known better.
Evaluation:
Simply stupendous.

I am roasting my Koratie DP tonight, as we are having guests over for 
dinner on Wednesday, and I feel it will be a very nice wrap up to a 
good meal.  Plus, good coffee seems to be able to keep good conversation going.
This morning (and now) I had/am having Sumatra Blue Batak Tarbarita 
Peaberry - oh so soft, satin on the tongue, with flavors carried 
through the full sip.
Last night or really this morning at 2:30 a.m., after driving 3 hours 
home from the beach I roasted a half pound of Brazil Cachoeira 
"Canario Bourbon."  Looking forward to trying it out tomorrow.
All the best,
Stephen

Les,
I agree with you, those rank right up there for me.  What I really 
like is that each night when I go to bed I have the coffee to think 
about.  It is a work crazy week and a doctor crazy two weeks, so I am 
pleased to have great coffees to carry me through to my next trip in 
10 days or so.
