It's funny but I just went through a very similar process when searching for my home blend (see alt.coffee).
I love the Brazil/Java combination (Java, Sumatra, Sulawesi(?)). I ended up adding either Indian Malabar for a more pungent espresso or the fantastic Uganda Bughisu for "pure chocolate".

Nice to see that my taste preference correlates your.
