As I just posted on the link for Len's F.T.O.:

It is truly gratifying to see the fruits of my labors and over 30 years of experience with espresso appreciated by the "august" members of the CoffeeGeek community! Thank you all!

I'm continuing to enjoy the shots pulled with Len's Blends #5. These beans were roasted on 7/7/09 and I put them in the freezer on 7/11/09.  Today, 8/14/09, I pulled these double 1oz ristrettos in 30seconds. Nice dark chocolate taste. Good body. Reminds me of a Sidamo SO.

As the G20 Summit (http://www.pittsburghsummit.gov/) will be held in Pittsburgh (where both I and my roaster are located) next week, and as the security and closed roads and bridges will make it nearly impossible for me to get to the roastery from Wednesday (23rd) through Friday (25th), please place any orders by this weekend as I will be having the beans roasted either next Monday or Tuesday for shipment that day.

I got a bag of this last week. Very Nice (I'm not a barrista so my description will be elementary for sure). Len mailed it out the same day it was roasted. I got it 2 days later. I brewed some in my Jura e9 and LOVE IT! It seems very flavorful and rich as compared to what I had gotten in the grocery store and even from my local roaster (who has bins on the wall so even if something was roasted 2 days ago (as he said it was) it still didn't seem as fresh as the coffee from Len's). Can we assume that storing coffee in bins that are not air tight like the vin vac I store it in at home is a bad idea? Try some of Len's, you'll like it. In Conclusion, When I got my e9 a couple months ago, I tried a bunch of coffees from the grocery store, my local roaster, etc. Some I thought was total crap, some was ok, but I never found one I really enjoyed that had a nice, rich, full, fresh, flavor. Since getting this from Len's my search is over and I can't imagine getting anything else.

Ahhh...just a note to mention a new "twist" to Blend #5. Our roaster has sourced a nice Monsooned Malabar and we are now including 10% of same in Blend #5.

The resultant espresso? Somewhat more interesting in taste - though a very tiny bit smoother. The body is, if anything, even heavier, and great in the cup. What is a real surprise to me is that I experience no more crema with the addition of MM to the blend - but crema was NEVER lacking with Blend #5.
