disappearing post? Tanzania Blackburn and Espresso Guatelope

Hmmm …. I posted about this weeks roasts, the Tanazania Blackburn Estate AA and the special espresso blend I did, Guatelope. But the post seems to have disappeared into the ether. The Tanzania was very juicy, lighter in body than I expected, but appropriately so. You can catch the Kenya-esque hints in there, the dark fruit, berry, black currant, slightly winey, sweet. The Guatelope was a special blend with the focus on flavor and sweetness, not body and mouthfeel. It may seem a little thin, but after 4 days we found it to be pleasantly syrupy. It is 40% El Salvador Mauritania, 40% Guatemala San Jose Ocana and 20% Kenya French Mission Bourbon. So actually it is an all-bourbon blend! We are enjoying it here immensely, pulling shots on the Andreja.

    I also like this espresso blend. I can’t compare it to any other that I’ve had because it has a sweetness that others lack. I enjoy varied tastes in espresso and hope someday to craft a blend with Guatemala Atitlan as the base. Your Guatelope is quite the encouragement to try for that goal. My wife enjoyed it with milk also. I use a La Pavoni Europiccola, BTW.

    glad to hear that the sweetness was there for you. atitlan can work provided it is not too acidic. extra rest time after roasting helps too. i predict the “guatelope” will be really nice at 10 days after roasting…
