Topic: Koratie and IMV blend (6 msgs / 184 lines)
1) From:
last week I roasted a pound of dp koratie full city in the behmor on P3 and at the same time did a 1/2 pound on the stove of IMV at city plus. I think I did the koratie a little too dark, because the last time I did city and got amazing pineapple and fuit juice flavors. My wife didn't like the karatie this time...was a little sharp, roasty and perhaps a little winey. So I mixed the IMV with the koratie.
I have been enjoying the great blend for the last week. Blueberry, some chocolate and a little fruit juicy. Very nice. I have enjoyed it as AP, FP, VP, and a very very nice espresso.
What have you blended?

My favorite blend so far has been Gesha Lot 10 with various Sumatras.  I
actually don't quite "get" Gesha coffee on its own (at least Lot 10).  I did
hit a few cups where it was outstanding by itself, but most of my straight
Gesha cups just don't hit me right.  But I have consistently found that
blending the high notes of Gesha with the low notes of Sumatra (and Yemen
Mokha Mattari on occasion) gives a banger of a cup.  Probably the best I've
ever made.  It's got the herby frilling song of the Gesha, with the big
tobacco foundation of Sumatra.   Delightful stuff.  Never knew coffee could
be so good.

OK, this is cheating a bit, but I was having a large party at my house on
Feb. 28 / March 1, with a lot of people spending the night.
For the morning coffee, I just was not able to roast enough, so I bought
Tom's roasted coffee pairing of the Yemen Mokha Sana’ani and the Java
Kajumas Organic Taman Dadar.
You can read about this on their roasted weblog:http://www.sweetmariascoffee.com/roastmaster_blog/I have been blending them together in different proportions, as Tom
recommended.
I just think it's all fabulous, and I can't say whether the Mokha/Java
at 25/75 or 50/50 or 75/25 blends or the SO is any tastier, plus, I think,
the rest time comes into play.
That Sunday, I made 4 pots in my Yama Vac Pot, one each of the SO, two were
50/50.  My guests were previous fans of *$ or Costco coffee, so they were
totally blown away by the whole thing.  We talked about coffee and roasting
for a long time.   I may even have a new convert, we'll have to see.
I have exactly 12g remaining for one more small cup on Tuesday in my AP,
it's more like a 75/25, the same as I drank today, and it was very good.

Green Stripe melange, 3X FR. 1st roast started snapping out 2nd Crack while
I was watching the t/c meter. And it was doing it as the temperature reached
392° F! The beans must have pushed the t/c junction bead against the
roasting chamber wall.
I guess you Suborn Second when your thermocouple isn't reading what you
assume. Nice roast, but didn't want no second. First in, Last out (FILO) of
the Mason jar. I purposely left the beauties at the bottom so I could
experience the difference between Vienna and the 425° I wanted..
I've been dipping the beans out layer by layer. These all had The Sheen, the
Steinway is a phenomenal Pecan on ripe fruit flavor, and now they're all
gone.

Bonnie,
Without even taking into consideration variations in roast levels of the
different beans, there are lots of great ways to do MJ blends. My first
experiments with it were using a really nice Sulawesi and the Harrar Lot 30
from a couple years ago. The notes on the SM site about blending were very
helpful.
When I varied the roasting of the Harrar, lighter for more fruited notes and
darker for more bittersweet chocolate, the combinations opened up even more.
Now, when you add in a different Indonesian, a spicy Timor or Sulawesi, or a
Northern Sumatra, things get downright interesting!
cheers,
Scott
