It's amazing how quickly he felt that he had to clarify he was only kidding. As if she were going to immediately begin processing an order for 4000 lattes...

Does anyone know how to decipher the chart on peet's website?

I finally made my way through the pound of Major Dickason's and it wasn't really to my taste. The house blend that I've just started on, I like a lot. Unfortunately the bag burst open all over my counter when I was squeezing air out, so I've lost a lot of it.

This is so fucking pretentious and horrible in every possible way.

Yay, the heating element of my Silvia is broken. Likely a faulty heating element (it's not just a thermostate and the resistance switch thingy didn't trigger either) and unlikely because I just did a 97% perfect job at "refilling the boiler after steaming". Anyway, will probably get a new heating element (for free, fortunately) and replace it by myself. Couple days without espressi. frown.gif

I think it meant well, but poorly executed.

Which chart are you trying to decipher? And was there a particular thing about Major Dickason's that you didn't like? You should try to get to the Counterculture tastings --- they represent a very different roasting philosophy than Peet's and may be more to your taste.

AY, you're my goto Peet's source. Anything good these days?

You want a souvenir of Berkeley before you leave? The Ethiopian Supernatural just finished its run last week, but stores may still have some, though the roast will be about a week old. It's got the chracteristic blueberry flavors, but with a lot more chocolate than before. It's pretty dark roasted, too. I found this batch to be pretty finicky, changing character from week to week.

Anyway, after a couple pounds of that, I'm ready for some tangy, acidic 3rd wave coffee for a while. The Central Americans are coming into season now, so I'd look for interesting stuff from there.

I went through two pounds of the ES in the last few weeks. Sent the leftette on a mission to find some good coffee today.  See what she comes up with.

The body and liveliness sliders. Not sure if they really mean much. It says body is all the way, but it didn't seem to have much flavor or at least not that I liked. I don't know how to describe it really, just kind of empty, but I'm a total coffee novice (I don't think I was underextracting since I use the same temps/times for my house blend now). What are the difference in philosophies? I'll get by counterculture as soon as I can. Midterms and lots of projects at the moment.

Picked up the Angelina Nicaragua - first cup is pretty good.
