Ah sadness, real sadness has settled in over the Abbott home. The roast master has just discovered that the entire supply of Kona has dwindled down to nothing! Alas, the final 250 grams are humming away in the HotTop. What will I do? OK, time to put together an order I guess. So while I've gone through 25 pounds of Kona what has struck the rest of the list as exciting in Tom's current offering? homeroast mailing listhttp://lists.sweetmarias.com/mailman/listinfo/homeroast
Well mike mcKona did say that the Hawaiian Kauai Estate Peaberry No. 1, while not a Kona was worth the price. I thought it was a pleasant cup. John Abbott wrote: <Snip>
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Thanks Ben. OK - I have 5# of HKE Peaberry on the list. Anyone else got a really good cup working?
Thanks Ron - 5# are on the list. You know, I just spent an hour looking over my cupping notes and my roasting notes. I've NEVER done JBM! Gosh I thought I had, but couldn't find a single entry. Carolyn says that she thought we had too, but there's no trail for it. So now its on the list.
I presume that you have noticed that the Guatemalan Huehuetenango - El Injerto Estate, and the Mama Cata are showing low in stock.? We all know Mama, and why she's almost sold out. John Abbott wrote: <Snip>
Good Choice John, I roasted mine just a few snaps into 2nd crack 13 min = profile. Yummy. Ron Kyle Anderson SC rnkyle
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. John, For a change of pace, I have been enjoying the India Peaberrry! It = pulls a nice shot or Americano. My current stash of Kona is well over = 30 lbs., so I still have that base covered. The ISH stash is down to = just under 8 pounds. I should be able to pace it out until the next = offering. The El Salvador that Tom is offering is one of the better = centrals IMHO. :>) Les
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Les, You obviously got more Kona than I did on the last run. My 25 pounds didnít last long. I may break my ski mask out and do some financing and place another order with the ISH group. I accept your challenge on the El Salvador being one of the better Centrals and will put it on the list. I ím up to 30 pounds so that may be this order. John Ė trying hard not to covet your ISH
Good choice with the JBM John. One problem you may have with this coffee is that it does not come to life for a full 48 hours after roasting. Roasted just up to second crack, it develops a special depth and that wonderful Jamaican aftertaste two days later. I think this is part of the low scores it gets when roasted, cooled, ground and cupped. It probably won't be special (especially $20/# special) just a couple hours after roasting. The way you like the Kona, I think you will find the JBM pretty exciting. I was quite impressed with the Nicaragua SHG Organic. If you haven't tried it, I think the 84.5 rating it received doesn't make it look as good as it tastes. Have a great Holiday John, and to all the other truly wonderful coffee snobs on the forum.
