After the old forum software breaking in a way that we were unable to fix, we've migrated the site to a new platform.
Some elements aren't working as we'd hoped - some avatars didn't survive the transition, and we're still having issues with attachments that weren't added as inline images, but we're hoping to have that all sorted out soon.
I'm sitting in the cafe of a Seattle specialty roaster, highly caffeinated after having some fun cupping a bunch of their current offerings.
3x South Americans (Guatemalans), and one Yirg. Have to say I wasn't really impressed much with any of the South Americans, and even the Yirg wasn't jumping out as I was expecting with florals and/or much fruit.
So I ordered a Chemex of the Yirg and tried the same bean I'd just cupped earlier.
A little smoother, and a little more flavour but still not really a standout. Maybe old crop or roasted a little too dark to bring out its best(?)
I'm off home tomorrow then back to the US again next week for some cupping and roast profiling training...
