Kenya AA. Not my favorite, just a little harsh for me. But I like trying what's out there to see what does suit me.

Not a big fan of Kenyans, either.

Just finished the last of the El Salvadoran Malacara that I picked up in the recent coffee and cigar pass. It came from from Barefoot Coffee Works in San Jose. Thanks mariogolbee!

Bali Blue Moon, roasted a full week ago, drip, splash. Wonderful, smooth, mild, milk chocolate, nuts, light spice. Very nice coffee.

BSB's Mocca Java Blend, 50-50% Yemen and Sumatra. I've messed around and I can't make it better than this.

You can try this:

50% Yemen
25% Sumatra (roast slightly lighter)
25% Mano Negra :D (roast to second crack)

I'm on it. I've NEVER tried the Mano Negra as a drip, even though I've roasted many, many pounds to be used in espresso. My Brother's absolute favorite.

BSB's Mocca Java with a Novasurf twist. Now mind you, the new Sumatra (Tarbarita Pea) and the Mano Negra, were roasted less than 24 hours ago, but it turned this blend into a superbly balanced gem. Just wonderful, thanks to Norman :banger

BSB....let us know how that settles in.
This morning...perfect Ethiopian Amaro Gayo.
Luscious.

Mocha Java the traditional way. Each of these were roasted separately and then I mixed them 50-50, I love this coffee.

Straight Yemen this morning, 8 days since roasting. Seems to be on the decline. Still very, very good, smooth, rich, good finish. But the funky, earthy, leather is less distinct.

2nd pot is the new BSB blend and it is awesome, it has a really nice sweetness to it. Nothing is jumping out, everything is blended together perfect! Thanks, Norman.

Re: COFFEE: What are you drinking?
 
I decided to break out the components of the new blend. Today is the Mano Negra and as a drip, it is very good. Huge body, nice sweetness, chocolate. I can see why my Brother likes this so much as espresso.

Re: COFFEE: What are you drinking?
 
BSB's Mocca Java, new blend. 50% Yemen, 25% Mano Negra, 25% Sumatra Harimau Tiger. Perfect!
I'm starting to see a trend on this thread, soon, I'll own it :D

Starbucks Breakfast Blend using Toddy Cold Filter system.

Re: COFFEE: What are you drinking?
 
1st pot Brazil DP Bahia Chapada Diamantina, good body, chocolatey, nice
2nd pot Ethiopia Amaro Gayo Natural, this coffee has been vac sealed and frozen for a year, ultra smooth, hints of cherry, excellent.
Both coffees were roasted yesterday morning to FC.

Rwanda Nkurubuye city roast. Picked up a bag of Moka Java for the weekend. The Moka is Moka Harrar from ethiopia the Java is jampit estate coffee. Looking forward to it my local roaster has been tweaking this blend for the last couple months. They're very excited about this latest version and stopped me as I was about to pick up a pound of their Yirgacheffe. I think he's been reading this thread!

Going thru the second to last bag of Dunkin' Donuts Pumpkin Spice. I need to stop being lazy and order a couple bags of Rainbow Roast from Shelburne Falls Coffee Roasters.
