That is the JBM flavor and mouth feel that I think a lot of people miss out on. It develops fully at about 48 hours, but right after roasting a good Colombian or Panama could easily match or beat out the *JBM* taste. A similar development occurs in some of the Konas and when roasted a little darker some of the brightness disappears but the depth in flavor really shines. It is kind of frustrating reading all the comments from people that never seem the find that unique JBM flavor. Terry F rnkyle writes: <Snip>
Hey Terry. I tried the JBM 4 hrs after roasting , and knew it would be a = great coffee with more rest, because it was good after 4 hrs. rest Ron Kyle Anderson SC rnkyle
Ron, I guess good JBM is like a fine wine with a very short life cycle. It gets better with age ( I resemble that remark) but then goes to pot within a little over a week. We have to be careful to get enough JBM fans so that Tom will carry it for us but not have so many as to sell out like ISH and be careful not to miss out. Yes, I am one of the few who actually prefer JBM to ISH. Hurry and take your shots at that remark or you will have to wait till next year. I do hope that all can have a joyful and prosperous New Year! Terry F rnkyle writes: <Snip>
Terry, I really like the Mavis Banks JBM, but can't compare to the ISH, = as I have not tried any. I would like to wish a great 2003 to all on the list.
