Topic: mokha java blends, and wine (3 msgs / 36 lines)
1) From: Prabhakar Ragde

I think the "Java" in Mocha Java should be interpreted liberally to
mean "Indonesian". Similarly, "Mocha" should be taken to mean "Horn of
Africa". As with an earlier poster, the best blend of this sort I have
discovered to date is half-and-half Sulawesi Toraja and Ethiopian
Harrar Horse. I preblend because I'm the only coffee drinker in the
house and I make only one shot a day. It makes a darn good espresso. I
prefer it to Tom's Espresso Monkey as straight espresso -- I know this
is heresy, and EMB is darn good, but I like my espresso more assertive
and quirky.

I'm taking this offline as it doesn't pertain to coffee roasting, but
I thought I'd offer to listers: if you want to join in a private
conversation on wine, send me e-mail. --PR

Prabhakar -
I belive there is ample precedent here to allow discussion of 
coffee-flavored wines for the next several weeks!  8^)

Well I am not 'wine- ing' now as an odd thing happened with the St Helena.
I have lost the sense of smell and taste with the flu I have. Luckily the
body I could still detect on my tongue - velvety pleasurable sensations. The
mysterious surprise is I had at least half an hour of beautyful aftertaste.
No smell or taste with the flu yet this long delightful aftertaste in my
mouth?
-bean'wild!
