    Hi all, just ordered some tanz uru and Peru (roasted by Andy) and was curious as to whether anyone had tried these two together? Keen to hear any thoughts/suggestions...
    Cheers, Steve

    I reckon a 50/50 blend would taste pretty darn good :) :) :)

    Thats what I was thinking, at least as a starting point. Was also thinking of trying 65:35 in both directions to see how they go; basically more or less chocolate!

    Ive been trying 70:30, roasted separately (roasted in modded popper, FC around 10 min, Dumped just on SC at around 18 min for both). As a small flat white I think the Tanz Uru helps add a bit of "punch" (not real good with the descriptive terms yet :-?). Find the Ethiopian sun dried is good with the Peru as well.

    No worries - I was really happy to see someone playing with the same bean combination as me :). Have been thinking about getting some of Andys roasted to see how mine compares.

    So far tried 50:50 which was ok, and 2 parts Uru to 1 part peru, which was rather stellar as a Doppio, and much better than I expected. Id definitely recommend giving it a try!
