WOW! IMV with one day rest roasted FC+ to Vienna (got away from me, i.e. 20-30 sec of 2C during cooling) is amazing! Fruit smell and taste with a dramatic chocolate/tobacco finish! Made the mistake of following the first IMV cup with 2/3 Yemen Mokha Mattari 1/3 Guatemala Huehuetenango "Quetzal Axul". Ordinarily I like these coffees separately, and together I thought they would be good - but not following IMV! It was a thin unimpressive cup. Guess coffee is just like wine in that it's best to work your way up to the "big boys".

i'm doing a hodge-podge blend (a bunch of stuff haphazardly thrown together) sumatra lintong, ethiopian sidamo, robusta, and yemen...pulled a double shot this morn after 3day rest...can't really distinguish anything but the robusta...just overwhelmingly strong cup of joe. michael, from b'ham, AL <Snip> Send e-mail faster without improving your typing skills.
