Subject: Suggestions on an 'all day blend'?
 

I have an all day blend that is pretty good, but I'm not sure it is right for the market here in Ireland.  So if you've got a great blend I'd love to hear what it is and why you feel it is so good (and how you roast it).

My blend is 70% Brazil Santos / 15% Ethiopian Yirgacheffe / 15% Kenya Acacia AA.

We roast it right to second crack and then dump it into the cooling tray.

Straight up its good but here in Ireland folks like to flood their coffee with milk (I think it is habit.  80% of the 'coffee' consumed here is instant and I think they've evolved the copious amounts of milk to mask the harsh taste of the instant coffee.  They haven't had enough good coffee to learn to back off on the milk, at least not yet).  So a good coffee here needs to be able to hold the milk (and sugar).

Suggestions please!
