So we call in an order before Thursday and on Saturday, usually at night, they deliver a big, aromatic brown box filled with one pound sacks of coffee they just roasted. Yum. We usually get the Breakfast Blend and the Dragon Blend for the church. John's main cuppa is the Dragon Blend, so I grab some of his when I don't have time to roast.
Brewed: Boiling water (203) from the microwave over 12 second whirly blade grind in unbleached Melitta paper filter.
More rich and varied than the breakfast blend, more of the caramel and bittersweet chocolate deep notes along with some fruity high notes. There's a good balance of acid and darker roast flavors and a much wider range to it than most blended coffees I've tasted. I enjoy it. There's definitely some of the Indonesian dragons in here, and it tells in the body of the stuff and it coats the tongue fairly well. The aftertaste is creamy and lingers for just a moment.
