I wonder if your expectations are too high?.

Posted December 18, 2013 link

Yes, that's quite the possibility. Well, I have had better coffee than I'm currently brewing, so my expectations are not fantasy (I think), just high.

al_bongo Said:

Where and when have you had a great/good cup of coffee that you've particularly enjoyed? What was the coffee? How was it made?

Posted December 18, 2013 link

Damned if I know, and it wasn't recent, so my expectations could involve some fantasy after all. Memory is funny that way. A good cup after a good meal with a pretty lady makes for great memories.

al_bongo Said:

I would recommend a coffee tasting. Most of the big roasters offer such experiences either free or for a fee in various major city locations.

Posted December 18, 2013 link

That's a great idea. I'll check in a minute.

If not I'll buy 6 bags and have myself a tasting followed by a hyper-caffeinated day. :-) Honestly though, I think it's probably a better idea to try MWJB's suggestion about deliberately under- and over-extracting.

I went out this morning and bought 4 coffees, 2 each from Barrington and Mystic, all roasted within the last two days. I made a batch of Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Kochere from Barrington and it was fantastic.

It's a light roast, and fresh as hell, so I did change two things at once. I'll be experimenting some more over the next few days.
