Topic: Satisfied with blend (4 msgs / 76 lines)
1) From: Mike Chester
Everyone,
I am satisfied with the flavor of my latest version of D'oh blend and have sent pounds of it to the name the blend winners.  The name does not really represent the final blend, however.  Originally, I pictured a flavor profile that would smack you upside the head, but I ended up with a gentle friend of a blend.  Tasting it is something like this:
First comes the thought, "I want some."  You approach the grinder and measure out the correct amount.  Grinding is rather uneventful, but while filling the portafilter, you get the first whiffs of its essence.  After flushing the machine to get to the proper temperature, you insert the portafilter and began to pump the elixir.  It starts slowly, first a drip, then another, and pretty soon there is a swirling stripe like the world's smallest barber pole.  You finish the extraction, notice the supple crema, and inhale the aroma of the cup.  Your olfactory nerves are immediately caressed and your taste buds began their involuntary arousal.  You take the first sip and your taste buds become completely aroused and fully erect.  A small voice in the back of your head begins to whisper, "Chocolate."  The whispers become louder and the drum beat begins, "Boom - Chocolate, Boom - Chocolate," getting progressively louder.  You must take another sip!  By now, your taste buds are complet
 ely ready for the onslaught of flavor.  It does not startle you - rather it is familiar, gentle, and comfortable like going on a date with the girl next door who you have known since you were both in Kindergarten.  But there is also a surprising eroticism present, when she tells you that she is next month's Playboy Playmate, and you know that you will never look at the girl next door the same way again.  By now you are craving the next swallow, but you don't want the experience to end prematurely.  Still, you don't want to wait too long and have the object of your affection cool off.  When you can hold back no longer, you imbibe the final sip.  It glides effortlessly over your pulsing taste buds and slides easily down your throat.  A gentle quiver begins in your back and you drift away from all earthly sensations for a moment.  Then it is over.  Your vision is returning and you are left spent, but satisfied.  You are left with the glorious memory and are able to taste the es
 sence for awhile after.  Now you can look forward to the next time.  Maybe that time you will add foamed milk and watch them play with each other and then come together for your pleasure.

Oh, my goodness - our first Sweet Maria's list message verging on the
erotic!!!
;-P
Maybe you should have a subtitle for the coffee:
 "Tita & Pedro"
in honor of "Like Water for Chocolate."
(or even the subtitle: "Like Water for Coffee"...but I like the "Tita &
Pedro" better..)

Lynne,
I have posted pournography on the list before!  Mike that was an
outrageously awesome report!  I sure am glad I fired up the Elektra
and had a nice Warbler Americano when I got home.

Mike,
Thanks so much for the D'OH blend! It came just as I was about to  
roast a new batch of Greenline, which is to say at a most opportune  
time. Ground it in my Rocky DL (the MM is still full of Rocket Fuel),  
pulled a 23-second shot on my LaCora and can confirm it's like  
drinking a Lindt 85% bar.  Yum! Haven't tried it in a breve or other  
milk drink yet--can't bring myself to do anything to alter that  
chocolate hit.
