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
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).
