Along with our equipment I would love to see everyone's favorite roasts.  Kinda like what favorite song is in your MP3 player right now.  What is your bean hopper right now?  Or even top 3 beans.... if you can't pick one.

Thanks,

Helen,

There is, of course, this List of Our Favorite Roasters, and my favorite roaster is Red Bird Coffee.  I suppose that means my favorite espresso roast is the Red Bird Espresso.  But there are others that I dearly enjoy as well . . .

In alphabetical order, the rest of my personal favorites include:
-- Caffè Fresco Ambrosia
-- Espresso Vivace Dolce
-- Metropolis Redline Espresso
-- Verve Streetlevel Espresso

Cheers,
Jason

I just ordered 2lbs of Redline (one of my favorites next to Red Bird) and also 2lbs of Brown Cow Espresso from Kifu Coffee.  Never had anything from them before, thought I'd try 'em out. Saw them mentioned over at HB.  Decent prices and $5 shipping.

Sweet Maria's Liquid Amber has been my liquid magic for quite sometime.  Damn I love that coffee!

Loads of sweet cream and caramel marshmallow.  Hints of smoke and milk chocolate.  Its all the flavors not typical to espresso (how many fruit/chocolate blends can one enjoy)? ;)

Thanks guys.  I like hearing about what you guys are drinking.  Liquid Amber sounds good, but I can't and will not start roasting.

since my favs from barefoot,ecco,ritual,ect seem to have jumped in price quite a bit, I switched to home roasting also. Many good SO's out there obtainable for 4-10 a pound versus $18 to $20 for a 12 oz bag. for a change of pace I decided to order from Burman instead of SM,and the captains. so far the 3 varietals I've tried have been outstanding and at a reasonable price. Right now I'm drinking Rwanda Ruli Mountain,got to love the brown sugar, berry jam,and chocolate taste. The natural Harrar is also outstanding, the best I've tasted in a few years. very sweet berry toned. Another I'm drinking right now is Guat-Bella Carmona,Taste just like various nuts with honey drizzled over them.Yummy, took each one to either FC or FC+.  made great SO espressos.

From time to time you can order it already roasted by Tom.  Keep an eye out for it, its an amazing blend.

Tony....next time your order from Kifu add the WONDO to your order.  Fruit bomb!  Delicious.
