Topic: D'spro Blend > Kokoleka Hua blend? (4 msgs / 114 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
Blend remains the same, didn't like the name. If you think crafting a good
espresso blend is tough, try coming up with a good name for it! Paladino,
Dark Horse, Black Cat, Monkey, Red Line, Tsunami, Hairbender etc. examples
of some names being used. Some maybe somewhat descriptive of the actual
blend yet for the most part seem simply catchy. Since it was blend "D" of
blends I labeled A,B,C & D created for a client to try, for now I've simply
(re)named it D'spro Blend. Since it was blend 4 and happens to be a four
bean blend 4'spro Blend could work too, but going with D for dignified as
some TV commercial I forget which used to say:-)
Pulled D'spro Thursday plus part of today at the cafe this week, pretty
darned good. But good to be back to Ohana, mo betta IMO. (more complex)
Though I am wrestling with a new name for Ohana Blend which makes too many
people think it uses Hawaiian beans 'cuz it doesn't, 'tis simply Ohana for
Family as in Family of beans. Maybe Six Shooter or Six Pack Blend since 6
bean blend... Hmmm or Philharmonic Crema or The Grand Pullusion or Lingering
Labyrinth or I have no idea but will think of something!!!
BTW FWIW for those who tried Ohana early this year. It's a much lighter
animal (almost no oil even the darkest roasted elements even two weeks out)
yet nearly the same taste profile. (many roast profile tweaks and twists of
the mulitple roasts required since it's inception...)

Off the top of my head - World Cup Blend, or World Cup 6,  since the beans 
are sourced from around the world.
BTW - I have enjoyed my incarnation of D blend.  It makes a very smooth 
stright shot and an excellent cap.

Hi Mike...
How about animna timpla, Filipino for six blend?  Has a nice poetic 
rhyme to it, and means something. ;-)  Or perhap senam paduan (SEE-nam 
pad-WAN, I think) if there is any Indonesian in it, since that is 
Indonesian for six blend.  Heheh, in Thai, uan means fat, but is 
pronounced oo-ahn. Six blend in Thai has about 20 different ways to say 
it, but I think hok-yam would suffice as literally, that would be 6 mix 
(blend) as in a salad. ;-)
Other suggestions: meaning is 'family'...like Ohana.
Indonesian: keluarga
Filipino: pamilya
Finnish: perhe
or look up your own combo at: http://translate.google.com/translate_t?hl=en#en|vi|familyOther than the Thai, I cannot say if these are accurate or not as they 
come from Google Translate.  I think the Indonesian for 6 blend is 
close, but someone who travels there more often may be able to give you 
a better read on the pronunciation.  I do think it would be understood 
if you said it that way.
Good luck with the rename.
Best Regards,
Ken B

What came to mind when I saw D'spro was Desperado Blend.  Not a bad 
name actually (as opposed to Desperation blend :)
