    Never heard of iron bean? May have to pick up a bag. How does it compare to black rifle in taste?

    Iron Bean might be a step up. However, Black Rifle AK Espresso is hard to beat. They seem to be geared for super dark roast at BRCC.

    Seriously, several year ago Monofletch talked about Joe Bean
    ETHIOPIA GELANA ABAYA. It was the best Ethiopian I've ever had. Its still in my favorites list.

    I love all of the Iron Bean coffee. I just got a 5lb bag of Fierce because I got a deal. I’m a sucker for deal!

    I will just say; I don't need my coffee to grow hair on normally hairless body parts.
    I like a medium roast.

    I tried the Kona Blend from Costco this evening with friends who came to the house for dinner. We all enjoyed it and for $12 for two lbs of beans, not a bad deal. I sent our friends home with a ziplock with half of my Kona stash. What are friends for, anyway?

    best

    Roasted some Yemen Mocha Ishmaili this morning, something I've been meaning to do for a long time.
    Now I know what genuine Mocha tastes like! It is a very satisfying cup of coffee. Waves of endorphins go through your body after every sip, LOL.
    Right out of the roaster (right before 2C) it actually tastes more like cocoa than coffee. A bit winey, and a light but very detectable acidity, but not much fruitiness. After resting a few days some more of the coffee flavor should develop.

    DrHenley,
    Sounds good..I like bittersweet chocolate. When I was young and didn't have to watch my weight, I loved hot chocolate and coffee.
    I just signed in to Iron bean.
    Next order...
    Rage Against the Dying of the Light
    Integrity
    Cast Iron
    Drink From the Skull of Your Enemy
    I can' wait!

    LOL, then you might not like it. It's more like SWEET chocolate.

    Imagining back when coffee first started going global and people started trying coffee from places other than Mocha...
    "What's wrong with this coffee, it's not sweet!"
    "Try putting some sugar in it and see if that makes it taste right."
    "That's better but it is still missing something. I doesn't have that chocolaty taste."
    "Try putting some cocoa powder in it."
    "Now it's starting to taste right."

    LOL

    Started carrying this Grip from the secret Santa swap. Ordered some aftermarket scales for it and trying to decide if I should switch to a deep carry clip instead.

    It’s always nice when you “personalize” a knife. If you like the knife you will carry it more.

    Cast Iron and a Spydie Chef!

    My wife swears the Costa Rican coffee has the strongest chocolate notes. Some of those coffees if you add a tiny bit of cream and sugar the chocolate notes are even stronger.
    I had some Chromatic Honduran that Spyderphreak sent me and it was super chocolaty! It is in my top 3 all time favorites!!
