    Mexican blend

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I did three separage roasts-Mexico Cofre de Perote to just on start of 2nd crack, Kenya AA 10 seconds into second crack and PNG Suavee roasted to CS 8, rested them all for 7 days then blended them -- Mexican 50% PNG 25% Kenyan 25%. The smell coming from the bag was a delightful caramel/nutty aroma, grinding it filled the area with a great aroma, by now I was hoping this would transfer to the espresso and I wasnt disappointed.
    Subtle acidity initially then smoothed out to lovely cocoa/fruit notes, rich mouthfeel and a lingering aftertaste. The milk drinks to follow were as good, the blend cut through the milk, the crema and milk produced rich caramel/choc taste, I had to lick the cup clean on this one!! :) ::) :o

    Im very pleased with my latest using the Mexican as a base. 60% Mexican, 40% Harrar. Both roasted just before SC, 17:00, CS 9. Its only been 3 days post roast and it already tastes like a winner. Nice aroma, sweet cocoa with a little Harrar berry "zing".

    I tried the same thing with last months Brazilian as a base (which was nice), but I find the Mexican is a bit more lively and punches through milk better. From memory both beans are really nice SOs second week after roasting.

    It really tastes good. You should try it at least once for a great taste. NON-Sponsor link removed in accordance with Site Sales and Posting Policy
