I have been having a wonderful time experimenting with the 8-10 different beans that I have purchased over the 4 months of roasting. I have been roasting and doing my own newbie "cupping" to find the best beans for me. I began to experiment with blending when I had too few beans of one variety for my French press. This is my favorite blend- 
I roast in my Caffe Rosto- 
1/2 Costa Rican El Indio 
almost 1/2 of the Sumatra Mandheling and a
small FR+ scoop of Tanzania Peaberry. 
Then I roast another Caffe Rosto cupfull of the Ethiopian Yirgacheffe.
(So the blend consists of 1/4 Costa Rican El Indio, 1/4 Sumatra Mandheling, 1/2 Ethiopian Yirgacheffe and a Fr+ scoop of Tanzania Peaberry.)
I have been roasting just before Vienna. The cup is filled with a fruity aroma and a chocolatey taste. I am using a cheaper $50 Capresso burr grinder and brewing it in my French Roast. I drink it black.
