Topic: Backwards morning cups! (2 msgs / 112 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
99.9% of the time I start the day with an Americano then pretty much
doppio's the rest of the day with the occasional mach' or cap' some mornings
2nd cup, but decided to start off with test doppio of 4 day rested latest
D'Spro blend roast. Yeah, it's working just fine. (Though not as dynamic a
cup as Ohana.)
Anyway 2nd cup of the morning today Americano of new "Premium Mokha Java
Blend" I'm offering at the Café. 50:50 pre-roast blend of Sumatra Lintong
T-pick and Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Kochere DP taken FC ~15sec into 2nd, ~15min
total roast time. (darkest roast on the retail shelf:-) Great bold, spicy
and fruity cup with just a bit of good balanced smooth roast notes. FWIW the
Kochere DP isn't one Tom's offering but a very good Ethiopia DP none the
less. When roasted lighter than in the Mokha Java blend get great fruit
including bit of dried blueberries and touch of Yirg' floral and citrus, but
the more delicate blueberry, floral and citrus notes gone taken it into 2nd
for the pre-roast blend. (Now using it as an element in Ohana roasted C+)
Just thought I'd mention it...

2) From: Wes Tyler
Mike..how much rest did the Sumatra and the Kochure DP have when you pulled=
 your Americano? I happen to have both beans so I did a 6 oz roast to 15 se=
c into 2nd in a total of 14:40 min. That was one of the best smelling roast=
s I have ever done. A cup in the AP at about 45 min was very complex, good =
body, earthy, but not dirty and gave way to fruity on the back of the tongu=
e. I am not a supertaster so I can't properly describe how good it was with=
out rest. Can't wait for it to age a little. I will roast this combo again.=
 Thanks for sharing.
