The Tanzanian Peaberry moved to my favorite Americano. And then I roasted some Guatemalan Huehuetenango Finca Huixoc just short of second crack. After getting hit yesterday (minor fender bender with no injuries), I got home and fixed a cup of the Huehuetenango. I was a little shaken and it had cooled significantly when I tasted it. It did not taste like coffee initially, but a floral bouquet of flavors. And I just ordered my next batch of coffee from Sweet Marias, and suspect that the dilemma will only increase with time. -Mark homeroast mailing listhttp://lists.sweetmarias.com/mailman/listinfo/homeroast
All you *need* to do is order a couple pounds of each Tom offers! At the least, one of each Country of Origin...:-) MM;-) aka Kona Konnaisseur miKe mcKoffee Frankenformer Rosto Roasting Rocky grindin' - Miss Silvia brewin'
Mark, I'm not sure if you are aware of it yet, but Heuhue settles faster than any other bean - its ready in four hours. I've used it for a couple of years because not only is it great, but it covers up for me when I forget to roast. Try not to dwell on Tom's list too long - they are ALL wonderful!!

After 3 days it mellowed enough for me to blend it with something less citrusy (guess what) and I liked it ok. Goes to show, eh? Charlie ===== Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!

Charlie, - I GUESS! - I don't like it after a very few days. I guess I like its "stand up and be noticed" taste. But hey, I liked buttermilk too :O)
Hey John & OC: I happen to like buttermilk also and thought I liked Huehue a lot till somebody identified their cultivar origin. Tried them again and still like them-is it that I like grapefruit or buttermilk or both or just the cool name. Just another little footnote-found a shelf of forgotten green beans-some are a couple of years old and more. Well I kept listening for the first crack and I never heard anything-OC confirmed old beans sometimes do not have a first crack. Also remember popping some old popcorn and it does not pop very loud-think it is the moisture disappearing from the bean. Remember somebody saying old beans were more mellow. Think that maybe a way of saying to those sloppy inventory keepers we are letting the flavor disappear. SO that marvy smell you get when opening your bean cabinet maybe your beans telling you something-roast me now. More candidates for give away beans-found about 15# of them. BUtch
