~ I always ask people to taste coffee black before they add sugar and cream. Coffee has a God given flavor and it is a good flavor but they will never know it if they just habitually add additives. It makes sense too, when was the last time you were at a wine tasting and added sugar?
It all began as a happy little accident. One day when I over-cooked a batch of coffee I knew that I could not sell it to a paying customer. However, before I chucked it in the trash I wondered to myself what would happen if I mixed the over-cooked batch with a batch that was under-cooked? So I did a mix of the two roasts and discovered that it tasted absolutely wonderful.
What has happened is that the under-cooked portion retains the natural God given flavor of the natural bean and the majority of its caffeine content (because coffee looses caffeine as it roasts) and the over-cooked portion adds the roasted flavor that you love in your coffee. This over-roasted flavor is not just the cooked flavor but is akin to the flavor that is distinctive to something grilled over a charcoal fire.
My first roasted profile was the Colombian 58 which caused my enthusiasts to email me and proclaim its greatness. Then I created the Indian Monsooned Malabar 72 which literally arrested the attention of my wife as I brewed a test pot. Now, I am experimenting with the Bali Blue Moon 50/50 which is a great bean and the promise here is ginormous.
