Topic: In the Cup: Java Kajumas Curah Tatal (4 msgs / 92 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
Today I am enjoying a fine cup of Java Kajumas Curah Tatal; my first
since I ran out of the Java Government Estate Djampit.  This cup
reminds me of just how much I missed the Java!
On three days rest, there is enough spice to tickle the olfactory and
excite the senses with anticipation.  There is a fleeting, darkly
fruited note, perhaps black cherry, ensconced in the ubiquitous
chocolates and spice that subdue the clean earthiness to the bottom of
the cup.  The mouthfeel is just a bit more than that given by a
butterscotch candy.
As the cup cools, the butterscotch flavors accompany the oily body as
it descends on the cup and the chocolates lift and give way to the
lingering, clean foresty notes reminiscent of a good Timor.
I'm in love!
Eddie

Eddie,
Enticing description!  Guess I'll have to try this one, my Mohka Java
just hasn't been doing it for me when I substitute Sumatra for the
Java.

What roast level did you take this one to Eddie?
I went through a lb of this one today:  The first 8oz in the Behmor
was ruined.  Silly me, I had the gall to set the machine at 1/2
lb-P3-C and the machine made sure it did not catch on fire (what it
does best) just after an extended 1C ended.  It must be funny for an
observer to watch an otherwise intelligent human being keep pressing
the + button long after they know it's usefulness has been exhausted.
Bah.
I just finished up the other 8oz in the Hottop B.  I took it 5 seconds
into a hard rolling 2C and the smoke was telling me that I was sending
some varietal flavor wafting up into the air.   Beans roasted to quite
an inconsistent color, and lighter than I'd have expected.  Maybe they
are like Sumatras and roast lighter in color than others?
I look forward to cupping tomorrow.

MikeG asked, "What roast level did you take this one to Eddie?"
Mike,
Just a snap or two into second crack was all that was needed for it to
be placed into the cooler.  The color did appear to be a bit light and
the cause for some concern until it was cupped this morning.
