Topic: OMG Koratie WP and Sumatra blend (5 msgs / 92 lines)
1) From: sci
This creates a phenom complex cup that dazzles at first sip and morphs all
the way to the last scrumptuous drop.
1/2 Koratie WP C+
1/2 Sumatra Mand. FC+ (beans rested 3 and 4 days respectively)
Brew however you like; I used AP inverted method with poly filter. 20 grams
of beans with 10 oz. water, Americano style. Yea, that's strong as goat's
breath, but I added an oz. of milk.
I know this is the classic blend along the Mokha Java paradigm. But this
expression dazzled so much I had to crow about it. I'm sure the Koratie DP
would do well too, maybe better. I still have some Aged Lintong that I will
try in place of the Sum. Mand. next go 'round.
I've started keeping an FC to FC+ roast on hand to blend with my mostly C
and C+ roasts (my fav.). I don't usually drink these darker roasts solo.
These "on the fly" blends can create heavenly cups that can leave you
wondering if coffee can get any better.
FWIW,

Ivan,
What is the inverted method of using the AP? I guess I must have missed
something somewhere.

Steve,
The inverted method involves putting the plunger about 1/2 inch into the
base, flipping it over, and then adding the coffee and hot water, stir,
steep, add filter and cap, flip it back to right side up, and press.  This
prevents any coffee from dripping through the filter during the stir and
steep phases.  I've tried it for a while, but did not notice any difference,
so I switched back.  YMMV.

Thanks Seth,
I knew you had to turn it upside down somehow but darned if I could figure
out how to do it. Now that you explain it it makes perfect sense. I might
give it a whirl and see what happens....stay tuned I'll let you know.

While inverted press the froth at the top though into a cup before flipping
it back over.  This allows you to get more of the coffee oils that normally
float to the top.
