    I did a little searching to find some twists other people do, some ones I thought were kind of cool, something homemade, a re-gift, a 2nd beverage type.. we could also add a brief questionnaire to help with likes, ideas, sizing etc.

    I would be open to almost anything really. It’s already fun. The anticipation is the best part.

    I kinda like the other type of beverage thing. I am also huge into tea, besides doing coffee professionally for the last 16 years haha. Just got back from China a few weeks ago with a serious tea haul too!

    WE Streak and some G7 instant 3 in one coffee! I bought it to throw in the SS but tried it out and WOW! Not bad. It would be great for camping or hiking.
    Strong X2!

    Quoting you from a different thread, but thought the reply would be more appropriate here.

    Note that this is a JBM blend. Just in case you aren't aware, JBM "blends" can have very little actual JBM in them, and many are mostly Brazilian, sometimes also blended with Costa Rican. Be wary if the roaster doesn't specify how much JBM is actually used, it could be as little as 5%.

    Same thing goes for Kona blends. A 100% JBM bag of coffee will generally run ~$40 - $50.

    Thankyou, that's good information to have. So sad about how much misrepresentation there is on so many products these days

    Yes, sad indeed. You're very welcome.

    There was a push at one point that JBM blends disclose the percentage of JBM beans, but for obvious reasons it failed.

    The last cup of this batch of Flores Laga Lizu Gnung Gedha. Flores is a new origin for me, and I quite like it! :thumbsup: (the stuff floating on the surface are oil droplets... :cool:) I roasted a batch of a Nicaraguan at the same time, and they're pretty darn similar.
