    Re: Ramacafe/Galeras or Ramacafe/Rititi

    Im no expert (at all) with respect to blending - I try to follow the guidelines in the excellent guide on the forum.  BUT - some of the most interesting blends Ive done have been the "Cripes.  3 bags with only a few beens in them.  Wouldnt it be better to have only 1 bag". Category :P

    Now, I guess that arises for any one of many possible reasons but I think the scientific approach of "Hmm - what is this SO missing?  Let me add xxx to fix that" tends to turn every blend into the same thing - your perfect idea of coffee.  A kind of nirvana-ish sameness.  Random blends sometimes shout back "look at me!"....

    Of course, once you find a nifty blend based on dregs, you can never quite reproduce it.  So Ive given up and just enjoy!
