I would like to know your 3 Favorite drinks, whether it's the method you prepare it, the way you roast it, or the actual bean, be specific as possible.**warning**More difficult than I thought, If my 3 fav change..Blame it on the coffee!!! Just really wanna know what people drink and why???


1.Ethiopian Yergacheffe Prepared Traditionally~ It's simple yet the ceremony is complex makes for a wonderful experience.
2.My Specialty Phoenix Blend Espresso (QuaD)~A Blend Of Colombian and Ethiopian Beans Roasted to my Tune~I'd like to call it perfect Harmony :-) **too many notes to note**:-)
3.Batdorf Dancing Goats & Intelligentsia Black Cat ~ These Guys in my Opinion Know their coffee, only reason they are 3rd and I'm second is I took the time to Master mine to my liking

Got A Bean or method , let us know that we may be able to try to enjoy it, share share....
Thanks Guys, hopefully after this is done, I will be able to utilize what I'm learning to create and arsenal!! Keep Pouring The Coffee!!!!

In no particular order:

1. Ethiopian Illili Daratu Harrar (Barefoot)- dbl ristretto. The most balanced SO shot I've had that wasn't Misty Valley. Awesome dry baker's choco, smothered with a blueberry/cherry glaise, topped off with a cinnemon cream. Just awesome.

2. Kneebuckler Blend (Barefoot) - dbl ristretto. An Ethiopian Sidamo Oromia blend, one light one dark. Bowl full of oranges.

3. Guatemala Quezaitenango Nahuala (Barefoot) - French Press. Eerily similar to the Misty Valley out of a press, but more milk choco (albeit subtle), and more floral (jasmine and chrysanthumums baby!) notes.
1. Panama Carmen Estate - prepared in siphon, it's coffee Heaven.
2. Cappuccino with our Killer B espresso. Fantastic chocolate, nut, and dark plum flavors. Yummy!
3. Any hand-drip coffee from our good friend at "Link" in Osaka, Japan. His passion shines through in every cup.
Top 3:

Sumatra Aceh Gayo, pressed
Dbl cappuccino using Dilworth's espresso... though Black Cat and Toscano are nice too...
Yirg, pressed warm (gotta find out exactly which Yirg this is...)
Benza Lance~
Nice..Glad 2 C I'm Not the only Double Crazy 4 Ethiopian Beans!!! Hopefully when this is done, I'll be able to narrow some beans & Drinks up to perfect for my arsenal!!!**I don't expect it to ever be done!!!!

John P~
I will have to say I haven't tried any of your selections!!Good Thing is there is room for me to explore!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

Brady~
Hmm, I'll take your word for your Dbl espresso, have to try it when I come up that way hopefully within the month been hearing some good bean stuff about Dilworth, I'll get to see what the talk is worth......Yirg does Rock!!! Now Ur Sumatra, give me a description whats the experience like???? that good you don't wanna share??lol
Ethiopian beans are the bees knees, imo. Man, in fact, Barefoot just sent a sample roast of a Sidamo thats pretty incredible.

I honestly don't know that I've ever broken down the flavor descriptors... and don't have the profile committed to memory. As much as I like the explosiveness of an Ethiopian, I like the easy comfort of the Sumatra. Nothing crazy - mellow earthy and dark. Interesting without being overly assertive. Kinda flies in under the radar like that early Meters funk - you can hit play and let it happen, it won't scream for your attention, but if you decide to start listening it'll change your world.
Benza~
You lucky dark soul!!I'm gonna have to check barefoot out, I haven't had Sidamo in a while is it still kinda hard to get or has the production increased?Ethio Rocks!!!!!!!

Brady~ I haven't had Sumatran in a while either!! Man you never really know how vast Coffee is till you start trying to be a coffee Tramp!!! I gotta get back on the war path, I'm missing out, btw I love the way you describe the experience, I must admit I went on a lil mental trip!!! I'm starting to feel the Sumatra!! lol...


Good Stuff Guys!!!This Is better than cupping w/o the side affects, o.k. not quite but...lol!!!
