This morning, the roulette wheel of coffee landed on the El Salvador Orange Bourbon Cultivar. In the rush of the morning, I didn’t mentally note the flavor very much, but did note that it was quite pleasing. Reading Tom’s review, I think it’s spot on. I can’t recall the fine flavor notes, but the overall cup quality was there – round, smooth, pleasing. The coffee rested for three days and was brewed in the Chemex. I’d be interested to taste it in the AP or the FP. I can’t recall the roast degree, but it was probably City+ to Full City, stopping around 440F.
Also, be aware, as of now, any of my temp measures are with a thermometer measuring ambient roast chamber temp, not bean temp. So, at 440F, there’s a bit lower bean temp.
On recalling taste, I may have just found the greatest asset therefore. Look here first. Now, pick up a Moleskine Address book, pocket sized. Record based on country of origin. So, this morning, it would have been E for El Salvador. A couple of lines for flavor thoughts, back in the bag or pocket, awaiting for tomorrow.
Enjoy the coffee!
