Mocha Java (50/50 yemen mocca sanani & java estate), roasted to Full City.  Drinking drip from my Technivorm KBT741, black no sweetener or cream.

Just dialed in some Red Bird Espresso (an old favorite) after finishing a several day run of Chromatic Coffee's Gamut Espresso (newer favorite).  The Red Bird's tasting mighty nice!

Got some Yirg waiting in my office for a Presspot later this afternoon/evening.

What about you Tim? You started this thread...what do you have going on today?  Whatever it is, I hope you're enjoying it!

Now that the holiday season is over, I finally have my crowd pleasing holiday cappuccino blend dialed in. ....I'm sticking with it at least a few more weeks.

25% Sweet Maria's El Salvador Tablon Tempisque Bourbon.
25% Sweet Maria's El Salvador Siberia Bourbon.
50% Klatch Dry Process Ethiopia Gedeo Worka.

The Tablon Tempisque is taken to Full City+ 444F 3.5 minute finish to bring out some dark chocolate, pinch of cinnamon and mulling spice. Fairly Intense and full bodied.  The Siberia to Full City 440F 3.5 min finish is milk chocolate and creamy body. These 2 play together well to bring structure and foundation. (I just love a good Central Bourbon; it is my quintessential coffee bean)
The Worka is roasted about City+ 428-430F 3 minute finish. I also have Sweet Maria's DP Ethiopia Konga to play this part as well.  Keeping this one on the light and fast side for fruit forward, though it does take extra time drying and ample ramp heating for a healthy first crack.

1/3 each works, or 50/50 Siberia/Ethiopia is easy, but 50/50 Tablon Tempisque/Ethiopia tends to overwhelm the blend.

All of these coffees can be made to work as a SO espresso as well....
