Subject: Very light roast Yirg espresso
Roasted some Yirgacheffe barely past first crack. Next day used it for
an espresso and yum. The concentrated bouquet was overwhelming but
faded after 20 minutes. It really hit me in the back of my palate when
it was still fresh. Sure beats charcoal espresso! ~~~~Zeek!

Let me see if I understand this right: You let an espresso sit in the
cup for 20min?

Nah.

It was 4 shots in one cup. I sip my espresso just like I sip my
Bourbon. Sometimes I sip them together (in separate glasses). 4 shots
in one gulp is abuse! Everything's good in moderation! ~~~~Zeek!
