    El Boqueron blend ideas?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    A nice SO, and unique so a little stumped on what it will might blend well with - has anyone had any success with something that complements this El Salvador?

    In the cupboard I have: Brazils, Lintong, Mandheling, Harrar, Kenya Rititi, Tarrazu ... :-/

    Hi Simsy, I love the El Salvadors as an so but have done some blends recently using them as the base. I roasted them separately and then post-roast blended them after resting about 7 days.
    Using ES as base of 60% I added PNG Sigri 20% and Ethiopian Dima 15%, it produced a lovely fruity/choc espresso and cut through milk to produce a lovely flat white/latte.
    Ive found roasting beans separately, you are able to adjust the percentages in blend to tweak taste I am seeking.
    Its all a great learning curve................
