Topic: In the Cup on Saturday (18 msgs / 359 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
This morning, my son Wyatt (5 yr old) and I are indulging in a divine cup of
El Salvador Santa Rita Full Natural in our Bodum Bistro cups.
A Full City+ roast was imparted on these precursors to exquisite elixir on
Sunday, November 2.  A Technivorm Moccamaster CD employed the use of
Swissgold filter to contain the ingredient delivered from the Mazzer;
alchemy begins.
The aromatics of the cup excite the senses and are almost enough, but why
stop there?  A deep, silky-bodied exquisite elixir of sweet cherries
engulfed in a slightly bittersweet chocolate tantalizes the palate then
evaporates to leave behind a lingering sensation that ensures, it's gonna be
a great day!
My wife Camille is enjoying a cup in bed and Wyatt is on his third cup.
Have a great weekend!
Eddie

3) From: Kris McN
Good Morning, Eddie!  I was just going to start this thread when you beat me
to it!
I'm drinking an americano of 50/50 Guat Oriente and Koratie DP.  It's been a
busy week, so this is what I have on hand.  The Koratie is at a true C
roast, so while I've been enjoying it in the TV all week, it's a little too
bright for my taste from La P.  Having said that, this cup is still really,
really good!
I'd be afraid to caffeinate my 4 year old!  Does Wyatt get nutty on that
much coffee?
Best,
Kris McN

Eddie,
I have to concur with your description. However, I roasted mine to C+. The cup is absolutely to die for. Rich, flavorful, and remains so thoughout the cup as I drink it. I use a French press for mine...

The Brazil Cerrado...Formosa (17m:18s, 445░ F, FC+) 18 hours out of the FR
roaster made me weep- I only got a Fiver of it. Drat- I should readjust.
Ah, a few Fivers give an uncomplicated mind enough variety. Last night, the
Moka pot spoke. McDreck and the Big Coffee chains never get it this good.
Note: the Moka pot seemed to be in a hurry to spit out the fairly new
gasket. (Even with leather welding gloves, no burn but still clumsy)
Fix= set the assembled top tank on the steam from the tea kettle to warm =
and
condition the gasket. The Crapesso isn't so easy, but I still got a Fabulous
shot this morning- I didn't add more than 5 pounds of pressure to the tamper
weight after vibration flotation and compacting the grounds.
Looked and tasted good. 28sec brew. Not as much crema as normal. Gotta seal
that puppy up- In Concrete!
Cheers, Mabuhay and Magandang Tanghali -RayO, aka Opa!
Got Grinder?

Great minds ...
I did almost the same brew from a TV this morning, 60% Koratie DP, 40% Guat
Oriente.

7) From: Andy Thomas
Today is roasting day, but I was out of homeroast this morning, so I went t=
o the local market and bought about 1/4 lb of Stumptown House Blend out of =
the bin. (Note to self: Don't run out.) Nothing going on in the cup at all =
-- no bad flavors, no good flavors. The pre-packed stuff was roasted 12 day=
s ago, according to the stickers on the bags. The beans I bought out of the=
 bin must have been at least that old, and staling faster in the bin, no do=
ubt. Going to roast Yirga Dale today, and a few others. Tomorrow will beá=
much better.

8) From: Frank Parth
Damn, and I'm sitting here in my hotel room in the Middle East drinking swill just to get some caffeine. Been in the 
region for three weeks now and have another week to go before I get home to California and some GOOD coffee.
As great as the food is, even the high-end hotels serve bad coffee.

Frank,
Sounds like a business opportunity to me. Anyone out there want to setup a
nice shop offering Toms coffee while learning a foreign language? <};^)
Shipping coffees back to their source and providing a badly needed service.

I've heard that most restaurants in Egypt and the Middle East
serve Nescafe' as their coffee. Is that what you are getting?

I have heard the same thing Bob. What a horrible rumor that has a great
chance of being true.

12) From: F.R. Parth
Boy, I hate to be the one to pass this on, but yes, every hotel in the Middle East (and in Kuala Lumpur) that I've been in serves packets of instant freeze-dried Nescafe in their hotel rooms. I normally drink coffee black, but this takes a lot of milk to be palatable. I think many hotels even use it to make a pot of coffee for the breakfast crowd.
Sad, but goes to show what marketing and sales can do.

13) From: Joseph Robertson
Frank,
I imagine there are a number of factors in this picture. Most of the good
coffee is sold because of it's value in the world. Lots of poverty in the
middle east. At least regarding the masses and small business. My partner
was in Egypt last February and brought back a ground level view to share
with us. The manager of the tour boat did approach her with questions on how
he could improve the coffee offering on board the Nile cruise boat. He knew
from comments from tourists that it sucks. Tom can you enlighten us as to
the lack of a good cup of joe in the middle east? Some of the primary
reasons?
Thanks Tom.

I like that coffee very much. One of the more intriguing things is the
aroma of the greens. They smell very bright and, I dunno, happy.

Pretty soon, this fresh roasted Puro Scuro (FC+) will find its way into the
Moka pot.
