We've all had the moment when we taste a coffee and something just clicks.  It's the sip that takes coffee from just tasting like "coffee" to something more.  I distinctly remember when I had this experience: in the cupping room at the roasting company I worked for, and I tasted some Ethiopia Amaro Gayo.  "I get it!  Lemons and blueberries!" and life was forever different.  What are some of your memorable coffee moments?

Surprisingly (well, not really), it was also an Ethiopian coffee that changed coffee for me. It was back when I'd just started making coffee 3 years ago and was mostly pulling a medium/dark espresso blend at a shop. One day, my friend, and business owner, brought in some Ethopia Sidamo Guji. I remember just opening the bag and catching a whiff of those freshly roasted beans. I had (still do) have a pretty terrible palate, but boy oh boy, that blueberry was intoxicating. That was definitely my wow moment.

That's a really cool story, Linh!  I was definitely coming from a similar place: lots of dark roasts!

I tasted the Ethiopian Bokasso using espresso machine few months ago and wow! It taste creamy, like full mouth creamy and sugary and it has floral Jasmine notes that really smooth that makes me want to drink it over and over again. Ethiopian coffee bean always success on put a smile on my face after I drink it.

That's wonderful, Louise!  I agree; there's something really special about a great Ethiopian coffee.

Awesome!  Did you roast it John, or do you remember who did?

Yes,

I roasted that batch. It was only a few months into roasting coffees.  I still have my roasting notes for that batch in a tiny notebook in a box at home. It was the first coffee I had that said, "Wow! this is special." and that I was capable of bringing out all those flavors. It was a big leap forward in my coffee roasting journey.

That is a fantastic story.  I love that light bulb moment.
