I like Sweet Maria's espresso blends. I think their Liquid Amber comes pretty close to Malabar Gold. I often am tempted to buy their Espresso workshop blends and generally have enjoyed them. I think they're fun. I have some El Competidor in my stash currently in fact. I bought 5 pounds, have roasted 2 and am just waiting for a sunny day her in Indiana to roast a couple more pounds.

I just finished a very nice home roast batch of their Sundae Java Sundae workshop blend that I've had knocking around for a while. I think I have Monkey and Donkey (decaf) to use up as well. I found the last New Classic I roasted a little dull - but I tend to go for lighter roasted brighter blends anyway.

I think it is still mellowing but I am sadly almost out of beans. Tell Lee I am 13 rows into my scarf. And your fire pit outside is a great spot to set up the roaster even in the rain being under shelter and all.
