Topic: Tom's espresso monkey blend (2 msgs / 40 lines)
1) From: Mike McGinness
Arrived with today's greens order. Even a cute Monkey on the label! Roasted
aggressive full city, 8min in Caffe' Rosto. Pulled my first Monkey shot
after a whole 15min "rest". Not bad at all. Smooth, mellow shot. Be
interesting to see how the flavor develops. Won't mention the wee bit (as in
copious amount) of thick crema on such short rest! A bit funky smelling
roasting...
I'll let the Uganda Budadiri & Guatemalan Antigua LaTacita rest a couple
days before trying them. (our first taste of Guat in a year of home
roasting... Budadiri to replace Bugisu) The hardest part of home roasting,
the wait.

If you haven't, try the Moka Kadir.  It's my BIG TIME favorite.  My Solis 166 burrs are going to heck, so my shots aren't as good as they used to be, but I would pull shots that smelled like plum jam or other fruitiness and the taste was a mix of chocolate and berries - just as Tom describes.  Makes a nasty cappucino or drip, but for espresso, it's really awesome.
