Topic: nice triple blend (4 msgs / 141 lines)
1) From: Gary Zimmerman
I'm going to be somewhat buried with work the next couple of weeks, so 
yesterday I decided to be ambitious and stock up on some roasting.  I 
roasted three batches of coffee - the most I've ever done at one 
time.  (Yeah, I'm a lightweight.)
I roasted Kenya (Gakui Farm auction lot), Monsooned Malabar, and some 
fairly old Yemen Mocca Raimi.  All were roasted just to second crack - 
maybe about 15 seconds into it, but not much more that.
About six hours later I decided to try some - and used equal parts of all 
three for my brew (Melitta paper  filter drip).
It was amazing.  The Kenya gave it a great "standard" coffee flavor, but 
the monsooned and Raimy added just enough character too.  Hint of funk, but 
not too much.  Hint of fruit and chocolate, but not too much.  Yummy and 
interesting at the same time.  Pretty amazing stuff, really, and I just had 
to share with folks who'd appreciate it.
I guess I've come to take "good" coffee for granted, and, while I enjoy my 
coffee, I don't usually really "notice" it anymore most mornings ... except 
occasionally when I hit an outstanding cup, like this.  Maybe it was partly 
that I made the cup in the evening - I'm too fuzzy in the morning to be 
really thinking yet.  But this is one of the truly outstanding and 
remarkable cups I've had.
This is why I pursue this hobby, and it's nice to get these reminders!

Gary,
    OK Silver Tongue - I'm going to try it!  But with Kenya AA (can't order
ANY coffee because I've run out of storage).

Hello Gary,
That sounds very good.
I just came across a triple blend that I really enjoy.
It's 1/3 each of Java Jampit, Ethiopian Sidamo and Guatamalan Atitlan
Decaf (yeah I know, but I drink a lot of this at work all day). I
roasted, like yours, just to the start of second crack with the beans
pre-blended.
The flavors are amazing, from too hot to drink all the way to room temp.
All the junkies up at work were patting my back on this one (for a
change - my blends are usually not so successful).
Best regards,
 Trey

The Gakui farm lot is a hugely versatile bean, and has the curious tendency
to round out virtually any coffee blend that I've yet had the gall to
imagine.
'Course, I've more recently gone the other way and taken to enjoying it
solely on its own merits, which are considerable. ;)
