Jan asked to let her know about the Brazil. It was a nice cup – a good balanced, ‘meaty’ coffee. I roasted it to the verge of Full City, rested three days, freshly ground (of course!) and brewed in a Chemex. Tom cites to flavor characteristics: nutty and, at darker roasts, chocolaty. I didn’t find chocolate, but the nice, balanced nuttiness was present. It was a wonderful cup, with a hint of wildness that came at the end as it cooled. That may actually be my fault, reflecting a slightly overage on the grounds.
Now, back to Ecclesiastes 3… It’s a bugger for sermonizing.
Solo Deo Gloria,
