Topic: Luna Bee Tradition (2 msgs / 45 lines)
1) From: Cameron Forde
Last month I was the fortunate winner of the Luna Bee tradition.  For
those who may not have heard, dedicated home roaster and list member
Kris McN went into labour while roasting coffee (or decided to roast
coffee after going into labour, I'm uncertain of the order of events
here).  What's more she sent e-mail to the list letting us know about
her activities at the time.  Some time later Luna Bee entered the
world.  Last month Kris wanted to celebrate the first birthday of Luna
Bee and she created the Luna Bee tradition.  I won a very nice set of
espresso cups and saucers and Kris sent along some of her homeroasted
Guatemala Oriente DP (FC+) and Menno's Misty Valley (C+).  Kris did an
excellent job roasting these beans in her Behmor.  The Guatemala is
very fruity and chocolatey and tastes like it came from Ethiopia
(which is great for me as I love the Ethiopian coffees!).  I like
Eddie's characterization of this as Frankenberry.  The MMV is very
fruity, with huckleberry and citrus dominating.  It is amazing how
similar and yet distinct these two coffees are in the FP.  The Guat
made a very nice americano, though the fruit flavours were not as
prevalent.
So, thanks Kris for the coffee and the cups and happy birthday again
to Luna Bee.
Cameron
