Wow, what a moniker :-O
So has anyone actually tried Mysore Nuggets Extra Bold?  Sounds like a good 
coffee.  Has Tom had this in the past?

Ok, I’ll try to say this without conjuring up unusual imagery, but it may be difficult.  I mentioned on Friday evening that I had roasted (in my Alpenrost) some of Tom’s Mysore Nuggets (see it’s difficult).  I’m not a fan of brightness and Tom had warned about using this bean in espresso because of the bright flavor.  So, I decided to mute the brightness by roasting the Nuggets one minute past the first snap of 2nd.  Even though I went a full minute into 2nd, there’s no oil on the surface of the beans.  Even though I was at Full City+ stage and 2nd crack had become rapid at this point, it produced a roast level similar to this City stage pic from Tom’s site:

I was roasting outdoors in 65F weather which could be the reason the beans were not darker roasted by having gone a minute into 2nd.  Usually, if I go that far in the Alp at 80F ambient temp, I’ll get a darker result with some oil on the surface.

 

After only 24hrs rest, last night I tried it in an espresso-Americano.  Today I made a full pot in my manual (#6 Melitta) pour over brewer.  In one word, this bean is terrific!  Sometimes you get a feeling about trying a new bean.  I had that about this one and bought 5lbs…glad I did.  In the Americano, the Nuggets provide a rich, deep (but not pungent) flavor that is loaded with chocolate.  There’s also a hint of something I can only describe as “wild”, not flowery, but more earthy/spicy to the taste.  After my first sip of the American, all I could say was “wow”!  In my drip brewer, I was equally rewarded with the same flavor, but the “wildness” wasn’t as discernable to me as with the espresso, but very very good drip.

 

Highly recommended,

 

Rick Waits

Nice to know Rick, I plan on roasting some nuggets today Full 
city+, I like coffees into 2nd crack. thanks for the heads up. 
I roasted some India coffee last week called Plantation A. I 
roasted just a snap or two into 2nd crack. A nice smooth medium body, medium 
finish with  touch of spice, and a hint of earthiness, these beans are 
allowed to ferment for 12 hours before being washed.
