Topic: Musical Beans (4 msgs / 124 lines)
1) From: John - wandering Texas
HueHueTenango - George Bensen.  Smooth and fluid, able to roast in as many
modes as George plays or sings - filled with bright notes..  Kicks me into a
mellow mood within a second or two.
Costa Rican Hacienda La Minita - George Shearing - just solid flavors that
are hard to break away from - but leaves you mellow and satisfied.

Well, the aged Sumatra got me started thinking of musicians when I sip my
coffees:
Aged Sumatra - definitely Barry White:  Deep, rich, smooth, sultry and romantic.
Serve this to your SO after dinner - the flavor inspires romance and the
caffeine supplies (some of) the energy. ;-)
Kenya AA Kirigara - Celine Dion:  In your face with prodigious talent and
energy.  It has tremendous presence -- there is no mistaking it for any other
bean.
Kenya Decaf - The Stampeders [recorded one mega-hit, Sweet City Woman in 1971,
then disappeared]:  Bright, sweet, happy and memorable, but lives fast and dies
young.  This is a truly fabulous bean, but you have to move fast to get the best
of it.  (Roast too long and it's burnt; rest too long and it's fertilizer.)
Kona - Beverly Sills:  Soprano diva, high and sharp.  Inspiring to some, shrill
to others.  [Note: this is my memory of the (already roasted) Kona I bought
directly from the organic farm I visited on the big island back in 1994.  It was
so sharp I haven't tried it since, certainly not since I've starting roasting my
own.]
Anybody else wanna play?  I'd love to hear about the Huehue, Ghimbi and Harrar.

I think if you try some of Tom's Hawaiian Kona -Greenwell Farms Extra Fancy, 
roasted at least all the way through first crack plus a little, you may move 
the Kona back into the Berry White class. Deep, very rich, smooth coffee. Me 
thinks you had some bad Kona or perhaps not such a good memory.
