Last week I indulged my enthusiasms for variety and price
discounts by including an 8-lb sampler in my periodic order for beans,
as SM doesn't sell any bad coffee.
Day before yesterday I opened a pound of of Rwanda Namayasheke.
Noting that Sweet Maria's thought it showed "versatility across the
roast spectrum," I tried an experiment. In my trusty Hearthroast 500,
I roasted half a cup of beans to City+, and continued roasting such
batches with roasting times increaseing 45 seconds each batch. The
fifth batch ran into second crack, was black and began to show a bit
I mixed the five batches, and this morning I brewed a pot of the
mixture. WOW. This cheapest and lowest-rated offering was to my
taste superb, from the first sip until lukewarm. I look forward to
more "spectrum" coffees. I may not sleep tonight.
Contra muros, mater rubicolla
