Topic: Espresso Blends: Guatemala Oriente DP? (6 msgs / 223 lines)
1) From: Rbt Tut
Cheers
SM "Classic" espresso blend has been my standard I compare to others I make
up and try.
currently I like:
50% Brazil DP   :  Cerrado, say
25% Sumatra    :  i have various> last tried was Classic Mandheling
25% Guatemala:  I have various ( not unfortunately the Cup of Excellence!)
any ideas on how the cup would change w the addition of the Guatemala DP
Oriente?
Im working up an order and thought Id try that one and add it to my Green
Library.
thanks

I just noticed this email and saw that you had had no responses.
Your mix is very much like the one that I have been working with - my ratios are usually 2:1:1 Brazil:Sumatra:Guatemala. I also add 1 part of robusta, not least because this mix ends up in a milk drink quite frequently. I really like the results. My current blend uses the Brazil "Ipanema" DP, Sumatra Takengon Classic and Gutemala San Jose Pinula - La Trinidad (Plus of course the Indian Robusta).
I have tried the Guatemala Oriente DP and it really changes the shot significantly. Even at the 20-25% level its fruity flavors really come through. You can smell it distinctly in the roasted whole bean blend and it shows up all the way to the finish. It's a hard to describe, almost funky smell and flavor. I decided I sort of liked it in the end - and I have about 8oz of it left to come back to later - but for now I am using more conventional Guatemalan beans in the blend.
If you have some I suggest you roast a small batch and blend post roast to limit your risk :-)

FWIW, I was using the Guat Oriente DP as a SO Espresso for most of a  
5lb bag. I really enjoyed it, roasted just until it touched 2nd.  
Tasted mostly of chocolate and dried fruit, and we really liked it in  
6oz capps.

I second this. I was playing around with the same beans at different ratios=
 but when went for the ratio jus described it was much better than what i w=
as making. I've tried It with Oriente and guat San Josť. I really like th=
e Oriente as a s.o. But the blend did better for me with the San Josť, br=
inging in more choc than fruit. But try it anyway! What do we know about yo=
ur tastes!

6) From: Justin Schwarz
I really like this one a lot, excellent blend potential and one of the  
most interesting SO shots I have ever had.  I wish I had included more  
of this on my last order before it sold out.
Anyone try the Nicaragua pacamara limoncello DP?  I just got this one  
and haven't roasted any yet. This got me thinking when I was in Kona  
last month, what about a DP Kona?
