  • Ideas on Blend

    Running late the other day so couldnt get my own coffee, popped to the local coffee place (not bad). But served up a great blend with a buttery taste with a hint of spice, like cinnamon or cardamom couldnt work it out. I need to get my own house blend and this is the type I think I want to aim for. Any thoughts on what I should roast and purchase to play with ?

    Sounds like it has some Indian Monsooned Malabar in it which has these qualities.

      Yes, the same beans the cafe uses. Ask them what goes into their blend.

            Im aware of one St. Something, but may not be them. Besides...doubt they need another plug! ;D

            I dont like using Malabar in a blend - seems as though no matter how long I leave it to rest, it froths like regular dishwashing detergent added to a dishwasher.

            No offense, but cinnamon and cardomom taste and smell very different, and if you cant discern the difference, you have no hope of replicating the roast.

            I suggest you get to know a number of single origin coffees before attempting to blend. If however you cant wait, Id suggest using the KJM Blend - it reads well to me and seems failproof.

              Was the barista Luke Shilling?
              If so, Saint coffee is also served and sold at the cooparoo market.
              Also try http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1239960313

                  Scollops - Ive found that the Daterra Sweet Collection beans give a lovely buttery mouthfeel. Could be those were the source of the butter? Im with Dennis on the Monsooned though - Ive yet to find a place where I actually like them. Theyre interesting, right enough, but not sure Id plonk them into a blend just to lift crema (which seems to be the main use). You could try something like a daterra base with just a couple of % monsooned malabar - thatd be the lovely buttery mouth plus some funky spicey overtones...

                  But Im no expert..

                  Cheers

                    Most likely a blend containing a high proportion (or even used as the base) quality Sumatran, like a Kuda Mas, Lumika or Blue Batak.

                    Some Sumatrans, particularly the more expensive controlled "aged" lots roasted to suit their moisture levels will exhibit truckloads of buttery smooth rich flavor.

                    A quality dry or naturally pulped Brazil when roasted a little darker can also give a similar results, but there is a very fine line between choc and butter when playing this way with BZLs.
