John, you NEED to take a trip and experience pressure profiled shots of
lighter roasted coffee. Seriously.

Ultimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path. To know I must
first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.

And taste preferences.  There isn't a roaster I respect more than Mike, and
I don't go 'dark' by any stretch of the imagination (425-435 I like quite a
bit in general), but I have never found the taste of espresso that lightly
roasted appealing.  We have a long history of amicably agreeing to disagree.
Luckily we all roast our own and can do it just to our liking!

At the most recent SCAA there was espresso roasted at this level everywhere
(who knows what the profiles were like).  Sort of the aggressive backlash
(rightfully so) against deep 2nd.  But there was not one shot I could say I
enjoyed of those.  I finally gave up after a dozen or so.
