Ron, I do love good coffee. Do you do any dark roast? I appreciate a good cup of Kona. Would like to order when you have some available. Thanks

Well, yeah, I'll do a dark roast if that's what's right for the bean. But, frankly, most beans lose their unique characteristics with too dark of a roast. If the roast goes too far the subtle varietal flavors are masked by the caramelized sugars tastes from the roast (or burnt sugars in the case of a certain national chain ).

What you may find, if I get the right coffee, is a melange, which is a blend of the same bean at different roast levels. Now that I'm thinking about it, I think I have some Brazilian coffee that would hold up well in a melange of a light roast (maybe City+) and a darker roast (Full City+ or maybe even Vienna). The lighter roast should have some floral notes and a milk chocolate finish and the dark roast would be all about dark chocolate. I also have a very nice Sulawesi that would add in some earthiness and a little bit of funk.

Can you tell that I'm making this up as I go along? If I have enough of the Brazil I think I just decided what I'm going to roast this weekend

Watch this space on Sunday to see if my plan works out :)

BTW, if all of the City+, Full City+, etc. makes no sense to you, here's my decoder ring

No, you're not missing it. I started writing up a section of brewing but there are so many options that It started getting confusing. I'll dig it up and figure it out.

In the meantime, what are you looking for? Brewed coffee or espresso? Automatic or manual? What capacity? What's your budget?

Let me know and I can give you some ideas.
