Topic: Sweet Maria's Classic Espresso Blend? (8 msgs / 175 lines)
1) From: Rbt Tut
Happy New Year to All
now that SM Classic Espresso Blend in not currently being offered, maybe a
Ground Swell from this group would convince T&M to list its ingredients
this would be for HIstorical and more importantly Educational interest.
Im Lucky as I have 5 lb in a cloth bag of it 'pending'
unfortunately I just got a 19 lbs shipment and didnt notice the new
Experimental Espresso Blend.
its going to be a long time for me to work though those 19 lbs!
I ask for this information really as an educational tool:  I compare my
blends to it and decided if they taste better to me or not.
now that I have the temp probe in my iRoast2  I generally roast my espresso
blends to < 450 F.
Ive had Sound advice to make that < 448 F.   Good advice
I looked the other way for a second and my currrent brew went to 454 F.
 what a difference!
thanks

I recently received an email from Maria concerning my similar request about 
Liquid Amber blend.  She said that Tom did intend to publish his recipes for 
discontinued blends.  If he has made a final decision not to offer these blends 
in the future, then I'd expect to see the secret formulas pretty soon.

You might search the archives. There was a conversation a couple of
years ago about this blend. If I recall correctly, Tom was talking
about discontinuing the blend. Part of the discussion led to the
concept of a "open blend" and I thought he posted the ingredients at
that time.

Right - I was going to write a section on "classic italian" and give 
examples of what we had used at certain points in the past, and what 
one might want to blend in the future ... but I haven't had time. 
Indeed, this will be our first "retired" blend, and will become 
"open" like Demian says, but I want to do it justice with a proper 
article about it ...
probably get that done this next week.
And happy new year everyone! Maria and I and Ben went up to Lassen 
volcanic park and enjoyed the new year in a cabin surrounded by snow. 
It was great! We'll be recharged for work on Monday for sure ... I 
also picked up an orignal Poppery at a thrift store and had some fun 
roasting. What a great machine...

far from there and it was a frequently visited place during my childhood.
We had access to a cabin in Mineral (nearby community) and a week of day
trips to Lassen was always fun.
