Well, this morning was cleanup day. Cleanup the last of last week’s roast. It’s my weekly chance to see what I can do when forced to blend. I’ve read most of what Tom’s written on the subject, but have never gotten the hang of it. Simply, I try to blend beans from different continents. This morning, I couldn’t. Had two beans left, the Rwanda Women’s Co-Op and the Ethiopia Yirgacheffe – Oromia. I mixed. I ground. I brewed in a FP for two and a half minutes. Result, at least as it cools, great stuff! I’m tasting a fairly deep body, with incredible sweetness in the aftertaste. There’s a bit of the astringency I would anticipate. Nice. It’s always good to be surprised by the op blend.
Solo Deo Gloria,
