Blend #22 Day Two

Another days rest, not much more has developed in the cup. I lowered my extraction temp. My first shots were pulled in the 200-202 range. Since I was getting a bit of carbon in the cup, I dropped the temp down to 198. The carbon was almost gone, the floral/fruit notes were more apparent and I noticed some spice I missed on day one. I believe the carbon was masking it. I believe this one has a lot of potential. The next roast, I will go quite a bit lighter with the Brazil/Yemen.

I made a slight grind adjustment, the shot was not as goopy as day one, but was very thick and flowing. The aroma is incredible.

    Thanks for writing about your blends. Did you intend the Brazil/Yemen to be lighter than the Harar?

    I've your ratio of Harar to Yemen works well for me also.

    I want to try the same blend with Java added.
