Final Notes On Blend 4

The blend has surpassed its prime. Something I have noticed with Sumatran based blends. The blend needs about 4 days to rest. After that it is prime from day 5 to 10. After that, the blend starts to develop a strong earthy tone. At about day 12 it is time for the trash.

This is not a unique trait to this blend. I have noticed the pattern on every Sumatran based blend I have used, be it my own or a roaster purchased. I am going to have to try some Sulawesi. I have seen it compared to a good Sumatran, but with much less earth note.

Up next, blend #21.
