[Homeroast] What's in your cup?

I had forgotten that Anokhi Liberica was also from India. I would buy that one again too, if SM finds one that is up to Tom's standard. I brewed the Poabs in a Chemex with Hario filter.
Today's coffee is Kenya Kirinyaga Kiunyu Peaberry. I bought it when I bought the sampler, but this one was not in the sampler. Roasted to the cusp of 2nd crack, 13:02. The first thing that hit me was intense rich fruitiness, what Tom describes as blackberry syrup. Some Kenyas are too bright for my taste, but this one is a winner. Also brewed Chemex/Hario.

Kudos for going outside your usual comfort zone. That Sampler sounds like a
great idea.

One Indian coffee that stood out for me was the C. liberica. It was too
pricey to drink regularly but a very interesting brew. I believe the
Liberica tree is a lot taller than C. arabica bushes and commensurately more
difficult to harvest. And it also has a different flavor profile from most
Indian beans, more like Yemeni DP. Have not seen it in a long while at SM
though I would like to revisit it.

I look forward to sampling the Poab beans. How can you go wrong roasting to
SM specs?

How are you brewing it?

Has anyone else tried India Poabs Organic Seethargundu Estate? It was a
pleasant surprise for me. I buy India coffee only occasionally, because
although they are usually okay (at least the ones SM offers -- the only ones
I know about) they don't stand out for me. But this one made me take notice.
I got it in a sampler pack. I roasted this last night in a split-wired
Poppery -- 12 minutes 27 seconds and quite a ways into 2nd crack, per Tom's
suggestion to roast a bit on the dark side. It is wonderfully fragrant and
complex. I thought it must be dry-processed, but it doesn't look it. So, I
went to the review at SW. Sure enough it is wet-processed, but Tom compares
it to dry-processed as well. 

Anyway, I'm glad I sprang for the sampler -- as I do from time to time --
because this is a sleeper that I would have missed.
