Topic: Rwanda Namayasheke (2 msgs / 46 lines)
1) From: John M. Howison
     Last week I indulged my enthusiasms for variety and price
discounts by including an 8-lb sampler in my periodic order for beans,
as SM doesn't sell any bad coffee.
     Day before yesterday I opened a pound of of Rwanda Namayasheke.
Noting that Sweet Maria's thought it showed  "versatility across the
roast spectrum," I tried an experiment.  In my trusty Hearthroast 500,
I roasted half a cup of beans to City+, and continued roasting such
batches with roasting times increaseing 45 seconds each batch.  The
fifth batch ran into second crack,  was black and began to show a bit
of shine.
     I mixed the five batches, and this morning I brewed a pot of the
mixture.  WOW.   This cheapest and lowest-rated offering was to my
taste superb, from the first sip until lukewarm.  I look forward to
more "spectrum" coffees.  I may not sleep tonight.

Glad to hear that your experiment was so successful, John. It reminds me of
what Pecan Jim Gundlach used to talk about on the list. He roasted with a
wok over pecan wood, if I recall correctly, and could roast quite a bit of
coffee at a time. Similar to what you described, at the point when the
coffee was roasted Jim used to remove a scoop of beans and continue
roasting the rest, then blend them. I roast a pound at a time; I should
experiment in a way similar to what you and Jim do, and see what happens.
