Topic: Ethiopia Wet Process Guji Oromo (3 msgs / 87 lines)
1) From: Seth Grandeau
I roasted this last week, to a nice City+ level.  The first sample
brew, at 3 days rest, was good, but unexciting.  But at 7 days rest, I
was absolutely floored.  The coffee had the smoothest, silkiest
mouthfeel I've ever roasted.  This is exactly what got me into
homeroasting, when a work collegue brought in a coffee that was like
nothing I had ever tasted before.  So creamy, so silky.  I simply
could not go back to store bought coffee after that.  I've been
chasing this profile ever since, and this is the first time I've found
it.  So, of course, when I went to quickly order more I found it sold
out. :)
So, my homeroast compatriots, help me learn how to find other coffees
like this, from SweetMarias.  I had assumed that this would correspond
to a higher number on the "Body", but this coffee actually had a low
rating for body.  Does this correspond to Tom describing a "waxy
mouthfeel"?  I want to be able to jump, the next time a coffee comes
up with the right score on the spiderweb or the right magic words in
the description.
Thanks!

Funny you should mention this coffee because we just had the same 
experience here. Josh had done a Probat roast, and left me a small 
amount to cup. I re-cup a lot of the inventory we have here , but I 
dont have any regular schedule to cup current offerings I admit... 
anyway, I really was amazed, and the coffee exceeded my expectation. 
And it was the body, sweetness, and balance that was impressive. 
Adidity wasn't that racy or bright... Anyway, what I think you 
observed is simply that, under different roast conditions and with 
longer rest, body score can increase a lot. I imagine when I scored 
it, the coffee was fresher - I rarely hold a sample 7 days and 
re-score it. And it's really a special condition under which 
mouthfeel/body can change and improve greatly,whereas I don't think 
aroma or sweetness or brightness would actually improve with 7 days 
rest. Anyway, thanks for bringing it up.

Tom, thanks for the reply.  I've never taken a cupping class, so I'm
just guessing as to how to interpret the cupping scores.  Are you
saying that body is the right characteristic and this coffee would
score higher, for body, after the added rest?  What I'm getting at is,
how do I find the next coffee that is going to sing to me like this
one did. :)
