Topic: Summertime Acidity (6 msgs / 218 lines)
1) From: Edward Bourgeois
During the winter I crave thick rich chocolates, dark fruits with
hints of spice. I tend to prefer more acidic lemon,orange, florals and
clean coffees/lighter roasts during the summer. Both in brewed and
shots. Kenyan and sweet new Centrals are my standards But will add
others that have some nice clean zing. Do others of you have seasonal
coffee crave changes?  Any thoughts of summer blends or SOs  for
brewed or shots??

How serendipitous, I just happened to post about this very subject on
another forum!
Like yourself, I find myself craving dense coffees with chocolate, dark
fruits, and spices during the winter.  Chocolaty Centrals and Wine soaked
dark fruited Africans are my favorite during winter.  I also seem drawn to
Indonesian coffees wtih earth, hummus, and smoke flavors as well.
During the summer I crave South American Columbians with lots of white
fruits like golden raisins, peaches, apricots and so forth.  Lately I have
been drinking a series of fruity Columbian Tolimas from Sweet Marias like
the Merediano Microlot and the Florestales - Maximinio Gutierrez.
The only summer blend I have done was a 1:4 blend of Colombia Tolima
Merediano and Colombia Tolima Florestales Maximinio Gutierrez.  Both coffees
had very similar fruit profiles (golden raisins, apples, peaches) but the
Merediano bought a nice slightly tart hazelnut note underscored the
Florestale's faint tart appleskin notes.  I simply did this blend to use up
the  last of my Merediano roast...glad I did since it was a nice combo.  I
brewed it in a moka pot and drank as a café au lait (but with less milk t=
han
normal).
Interesting subject...look forward to hearing everyone's elses experiences!

No seasonal preference for me. I usually roast 3 or 4 types, origins, processes at each session, and enjoy them all any time of year. Wine is a totally different story -- major seasonal differences in what I like.

Me too, Andy.  I've found that my palette doesn't clearly detect the higher,
acidic notes.  The end result of those coffees are bland to me.  My
gravitations are some South Americans, some Africans and SE Asia.
Same with beer - a stout is always good.

Must chime in here. I like them all, all of the time. In the summer one of
the
dark fruited Africans are my favorite for iced coffee; poop who likes to
drink
water with a bit of color.
On the West Coast we are wild and crazy and do things a bit differently!!
