Topic: Yirgacheffe! (3 msgs / 54 lines)
1) From: Phil Palmintere
I'm enjoying Yirgacheffe this morning, roasted on 5/14 past 1st crack but
not yet to 2nd.  While I certainly don't have the tasting ability of more
seasoned coffee drinkers, I'm getting a very bright double espresso with
lemon florals, quite bright, with maybe some maple and butterscotch.  It has
a wonderful almost syrupy feel in my mouth. Yum!

I cupped a table of Yirga Cheffe yesterday, an there was nothing 
special, quite disappointing. We have some very nice natural coffees 
coming, and one excellent wet process lot. It has been very hard to 
get decent samples this year, and I think it is more than the 
exchange issue, (ECX) ... I think quality is harder to find. It's 
always there, but just more rare this year.

Chock it up to us all having different taste buds, but last year's Yirga
Cheffe did not excite me.  I ended up gifting it to friends and family, all
of whom loved it, but for me it wasn't a big hit, as compared to the Koratie
or the IMV.  Funny how that goes.
I hope I can get my stash down before the new Ethiopians start arriving! :)
