      Tell us your roast experience & tastes with MM.
      I have heard 14 days post roast is the best.
      I have some ageing now, currently at 10 days and im hanging out.

              Im a big fan of the MM but i must say, its not the kind of coffee i could make my daily drop.

              One of the floor staff at work can smell it whenever i use it as my coffee of the day and she has described it as the following..
              *Baked Beans
              *Creamed Corn
              *Fish fingers
              *Steamed dim sims

              Is tinned food a coffee description? lol

              I took some home from work before Xmas and was still using it at 25 days post roast and i think it was at its best at around days 16-20.

              I just picked up 5kgs of it the past monday so ill have to give it a miss unless its from a different shipment?

                We got the airfreighted samples in November and the actual shipment is still on the water so yes, it is certainly from a different crop.

                I expect what you have is last seasons monsoon and with many different mills in India the quality can be vastly different.

                Not all beans are created equal. ;-)

                    I use a Gene Cafe and do two 250gm batches of Brazil (CS8-9) and one of MM (CS10), then blend. Wait 5-7 days and it rocks.

                    The MM give great body plus a crema that will not quit.

                      I had someone roast my one and only bag of MM and they accidentally let it finish quite dark CS11.....

                      It was great at 2 weeks post roast, and at its best at about 3 weeks. My only complaint was a hint of smokiness (which disappeared after 2 weeks), but I was happy to be able to be drinking it at all, it was so dark.
