Topic: From Money Blend to What??? (3 msgs / 73 lines)
1) From: Adam Jahiel
As I am fairly new to roasting, the coffee that appeals to me most so far is
Tom's Monkey Blend. Any suggestions as to what would be close to that taste?
Sometimes I wish there was a listing like on the CD clubs, where you make a
pick, and then a menu comes up that says "If you liked" then try
this, and this and this".
Thanks,
A.

Hi Adam,
It's hard to give advice based on blends, since 
they contain lots of components, and are well 
rounded.
A lot of the flavor in Monkey comes from Ethiopean 
beans, these add the berry and chocolate flavor 
notes. So you might want to try these, especially 
the Harrar, on their own.
The body and all round pleasantness come from 
Indonesian (mainly Sumatra is my guess) and 
Brazilian (currently, the CPQ from Tom's notes).
There's also hints of other things, maybe Guat 
Antigua; but it's almost impossible to reverse 
engineer a coffee blend.
You may want to try some of these on their own to 
get a feel for how single origins contribute to a 
blend.
Alternatively, Tom recommends a Harrar/Sulawesi or 
Harrar/Uganda Budadiri which are very tasty
Budadiri is my current favorite "chocolate bean" 
for espresso.

Adam,
    The Uganda Budadiri AA-S has replaced the Monkey Blend as my 
favorite.  A close second is the Timor Organic Aifu.  You might give 
them a try.
