Topic: green green coffee buyer (8 msgs / 167 lines)
1) From: Stephphilpot
I am preparing my 1st order of green coffee...  I just closed my eyes
and picked, so if you have suggestions for first timers, PLEASE let me
know.  We like full-bodied taste.
Also, I'm ordering chicory.  What coffee do I need to order to go with
Thanks a bunch...  I'll hold my order, till I hear your recommendations.
So far, I've got the following on my order...
 Panama Auction Winner -Mama Cata -1 lb
 Kenya AA Kiawamururu Auct.Lot '02 -1 lb
 Costa Rica Auction Lot Diamante Tarrazu   1 lb
 Colombian Organic Mesa De Los Santos -1 lb
 SM's Roasted French Chicory -1 lb
Like I said, I basically just closed my eyes and picked...  ANY help is
appreciated. :)
Also, do the suggested roasting instructions come with the order, or do
I need to print them from the descriptions?
Thanks a bunch!

I'd recommend Java Jampit.  Very smooth, all sorts of
 well-blended interesting tastes and lots of body.
You might also like East Timor, which has lots of body
 (might go well with the chicory, but I've not used chicory
 in years) and Papua New Guinea, which has a little less
 body than the Timor, but has a more complex and
 interesting taste.
I don't like Centrals and South Americans (I find them
 boring), so I can't comment on the coffees you've already
Be well,

Buy the 8 pack sampler, Tom & Maria will take you around the world and 
show you the coffees from the different regions 1/2 lb at a time.
Remember what you like, and try others from that region.

     I strongly recommend the Timor Organic Aifu.  It is a very 
different coffee from the ones
you have on your list.  You may not like it but if that is the case you 
can compare its profile with future beans to decide.

 Hi Steph, you might want to add the Uganda Budadiri as
something with lots of body and a famous dark chocolate taste,
the Pluma Olivo for rich taste and good body, and my favorite of
Tom's offerings-Mokha Ismaili Yemen, with all the flavor in the
world. I guess the chicory can be used to disguise the taste of
a coffee you end up not liking very much ;o)

First I agree with the suggestion of the 8pk sampler. Also, I'd suggest a
pound or two of any greens similar to beans you are already familiar with.
When I started home roasting a couple years ago I got a number different
Indonesians because Sumatra & Sulawesi had been two of our daily staples
when purchasing pre-roasted. (Actually, I ordered a pound of every
Indonesian offered plus some others in addition to the 8pk...) Course, now I
know how good they can really be!:-) Enjoy the journey. Currently have over
65 different greens... what a wonderful world of choices home roasting opens

And as Martha Stewart would say :(and that's a good thing)
You will most likely be drinking a lot more coffee then you used to =
because it will be so good. You may consider a good decaf so you can do =
some evening sipping and still go to sleep I would recommend Columbian =
Narifio del Abuelo that Toms offering roasted either City or full City =
its very good.  good luck with your roasting.

Amen. This is one of the first lessons I learned; and I had to put 
together a second order to resolve that issue. Also, like last night; I 
ran off 5 different batches to compare the roast. Now I did dump a 
couple of cups, but I sure did exceed my caffine allowance.
