I'll stick to my policy of not recommending blends to people who are
better cuppers and blenders, but so far the label has been a hit. Drop
the tin, and name is yours. Merry Holidays. Or keep the tin.

OK, the blend is 2:1 El Salvador Santa Sofia COE (Paradise)---stop at
1st snap; and Brazil Cachoeira Yellow Bourbon (Sweet M)---into 2nd, no
oil.

Nevermind, I don't recommend blends. But if you were to try:

Jack's long-distance cup assessment is pretty close. As espresso the
Brazil seems to tone down the edgier elements of the SA and bring focus
to the middle. It also adds body and some caramel to the SA fruit but
nothing too distinctive. First sips of brewed are OK, but almost
generic, and I wondered if I'd blown some pricey beans. But as cooled,
all sorts of what the SA is purported to do sprung into play. Here,
too, the Brazil added a touch of espresso-like bitter or roastyness,
and an A-B with a cup of Salvador SO had me prefer the blend.

But then, I don't recommend.

As far as the acronym goes, the blend was first called Seasonal
Christmas Agnostic Blend; but that didn't survive the early ket
testing.

Would you abbreviate this as tin's SAD blend?

Do you recommend this for brewed or espresso? As a espresso, I'd say
there's too much CA. As brewed, I've never had any luck brewing Brasil
though I utterly swear by it as an espresso base. But I haven't tasted yours
so I remain, uhhh, agnostic.
