chemex success

at long last i can report an unqualified chemex success: with andrew barnett's ecco brazil from yesterday!

this 7-day old coffee emerged after 11 mins. with a surprisingly substantial body, and a pleasant molasses or really dark maple syrupy kinda thing. the freshly ground beans were scented like a spicy flower: dutch iris maybe?

it wasn't too bitter nor was it overextracted. in fact, i might have made it a tad too strong with 3 oz. ground coffee -- i might move that down to 2.75 oz.

i immediately added a tablespoon of cream, a dash of splenda, and had a second cup. . .yummy. it'll be interesting to try his espresso this weekend.
