Gary, how did you know?!  I'm enjoying my first-ever real Kona, and loving
Happy Ney Year to you and to all!  What about my next cup, a blend of
Sumatra, Costa Rica and Harar?  What's the New Year greeting for that one?

5) From: Justin Marquez
When we got ready to pull out of Snyder to go to Houston last week, I
just took all my roasted stash including some Kenyan, Sumatra and
Harar and tossed it together in a ziplock coffee baggie.  I have no
idea how much of each was there but  the resulting mix was about a
half pound.  It has made a FINE blend. It is almost all gone. :-(
I have the roasting setup and am roasting other stuff but when I get
back, I will try to duplicate the "pick-up blend".
I bought a French Press and a milk frother here in Houston, too.  My
wife was instantly hooked on lattes we made with the FP coffee anf
frothed milk.

I found myself out of empty jars a couple of days ago and did
something similar. This blend had a bit of french roast, some PNG, a
smidgen of harar, some Panama hartman songbird, and a bit of Columbia
Medellin decaf. The resulting mix we started calling Franciscan
Melange (after the rocky substrate common in San Francisco). It was
really good, mellow cup of coffee. It did not last very long and is
now gone.
I doubt it's repeatable.

Funny this is coming up now.  I did the same thing with all of my available 
beans in house, Harar, Mokha, Djampit, Sumatra, Kenya, Columbian, 
Brazilian...Very smooth, pleasant non-discript coffee.  Just random 
handfuls.  Did it a second time - same result.  I was talking with Les 
yesterday, describing this.  He likened it to mixing 20 remnant paints and 
always getting a non-offensive grey.  I think that is what we have - Grey 
coffee blend.

That actually sounds like a decent espresso blend. Did you try
it that way?

11) From: AlChemist John
Yes, that is why I roasted it again.  It was hands down the smoothest 
"non-rustic" espresso I have every had.  Pure silk, satin, and creamy 
goodness. Truly amazing.  I really didn't need the 3 extra shots that day 
:-O.  My Gaggia is on this morning warming up to see if the 2nd blend is as

I won't disagree. But I think the cat picture captures the soul of a  
real American soldier perfectly: a fighting man, dedicated to doing  
what is necessary, but caring and compassionate at heart, finding a  
tiny bit of beauty in the middle of craziness. It's a bittersweet image.

Which religion?  Doesn't quite matter to me.  The interesting fact is
that there are women in a mosque learning.  I found the picture to be
another glimpse of Iraq, in addition to the soldier's gentle petting
of the cat...
Yeah, maybe it was a pasta recipe...
