    50 / 50 We are at the cartel have been playing around with just 2 origin blends for some time now and just thought I would post some info on what we are cupping. It an exciting way to blend as it makes the coffees that have an abundance of flavours stand out in an uncomplicated way..

    All these coffees have been roasted one light and one darker… ( one just on second crack and one on rolling second crack) never over 215 degrees or 14 mins.

    Sumatran 50% Limu 50%[ch9733][ch9733][ch9733][ch9733] ;D
    Harrar 50% Sulawasi 50%[ch9733][ch9733][ch9733]
    Java 50% yemen 50%[ch9733][ch9733][ch9733][ch9733][ch9733]
    Mexican 50% Limu 50%[ch9733][ch9733][ch9733][ch9733] ;)
    Kenya Peaberrey 50% Kenya Kandara 50%[ch9733][ch9733][ch9733][ch9733]
    Esmeralda Special and Yemen 50%[ch9733][ch9733][ch9733][ch9733][ch9733] :o


    Anyway two great outstanding coffees go really well with each other like ying yang

    i know alot of you have probably already tried one Single origin roasted dark and light its another really interesting espresso shot ...roast it quite dark so that the coffee has a strong base then roast it quite light and blend 50/50 ::)

    oh i love coffeeeee....

    Just tried a 50/50 blend of Mexican Yeni Navan and Bolivian Green Mountain - lovely and sweet and cuts nicely through the milk.

    Sweeeet!

    This sounds nice. I roasted some Bolivia Montanas Verde last week and its coming up really nice right now in the cup, delicious with milk or as espresso. Keen to blend with something.

    Re: 50/50

    Try looking for two origins that have nothing in common, different continents, moisture contents, size, colour, process and even price. Contrast can often be the key to unlocking great flavours. 50/50s make really interesting and economical blends.

    My recent favourite 50/50 is an Indian combination: Elephant Hills plus Mysore Nuggets Extra Bold. Roasted to the first snaps of second crack in my iCoffee roaster and then left for 14 days. The resulting grind easily choked my Lelit and Lever and I had to wind out the grinder quite a bit to get a decent flow.

    The pour was like cough syrup and the flavour similar too - from the lever definitely a lot more gloopy. A really intriguing flavour!

    Just finishing a bag of 50/50 PNG Waghi & Mex El Tru. Awesome! Pre-roast blend, so the PNG seems to roast a bit darker than the Mex anyway…
    I'm actually really enjoying two bean blends currently (lots of Mocha/Java) - they just seem to have a simple yet powerful flavour.

    Happy blending!
