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.

All you *need* to do is order a couple pounds of each Tom offers! At the
least, one of each Country of Origin...:-)

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!!

 John, you've posted that advice about the Huehue not needing to
rest about half a dozen times, so when I finally tried some I
brewed some up after a few hours post roast and gaaawd, do we
ever have different views on that one! 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,
 - 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
