Topic: Sumatra Iskandar (4 msgs / 57 lines)
1) From: Kai-La-Sha
Anybody tried the Sumatra Iskandar?  Just roasted some, and it is GOOD!
Nice thick body, sweet, rich, earthy flavor, and a real "essence of
coffee" character.  Since the Jampit gave out, I have tried several
other Indonesians, but found all of them missed the mark until I tried
the Sumatra Iskandar. All the Mokha lovers should appreciate this one. 
Taken a few seconds into 2nd crack seems to be the best for my taste. 
One other thing, it has almost no chaff - large uniform beans. Another
characteristic: the color remains quite light even well into 2nd crack.

Did you mean Java lovers, or did you mean that the Mokha lovers will like to
blend this with their Java?

I agree about the Iskandar, it is a delicious coffee with the subtle and 
deep earthy tones you expect from a Sumatran, but it is lively, too, not at 
all sullen nor dejected. [grin]  I mixed it with some Yemen Ismaeli for a 
kind of Macha/Java blend and it works superbly.
I find I like the Iskandar on the light side of full city, it seems to stay 
more alive that way.

Not yet, but I've got some in my most recent order.  Guess what my next 
batch is going to be. :-)
