Bean!

They've gotten some interesting new beans in at Sweet Marias - a new lot of aged Sumatra Mandheling from the '03 crop and a Sumatran Batak Peaberry, plus the Yemen Mokha Sana'ani.

I like the combination of Sumatran, rather than Javanese, with the Mokha for a traditional Mokha-Java type blend, although just a little of the funkiness of the aged Sumatran can go a long way. I also like to add a little bit of the monsoon aged Malabar to it. Needless to say I've ordered a little bit of these so that I can do a couple of special roasts.

A friend of mine was recently commenting that he had thought oenophiles were a little over-the-top until he started looking into the home-roasting crowd. Gee! d'ya think?
