Topic: ethiopia excitement and colombian surprise (34 lines)
1) From: Tom Ulmer
The Ipanema is one of my favorites as well. 
Last week's roast included a Colombian, I believe organic Narino, which
roasted quite uneven. After a very pronounced first crack and solidly
engaging second crack, I dumped the roast and viewed quite a few whitish
beans - mottled white and light brown. I started to pick them out when I
realized that they were a significant portion of the roast. I decided I
would let just them rest and see were it went. The beans never really
darkened during the rest and I was expecting under-roasted flavors in the
brew. I was certainly surprised to get very pleasant mellow malted chocolate
milk flavors and very smooth after tastes. It's my favorite of the week from
the press.
