I mean this topic as an open discussion on whether you have already tried blending some roasts and your findings or are curious to do so and like to read others’ experiences.
The reason I start this topic is because this morning I was pleasantly surprised by an unintentional blend :D.
[[Small disclaimer: when most people on this forum are talking, they speak of ‘coffee’ (either french press, aeropress, poor-over, etc.) when I’m talking I talk about espresso! (‘doppio’ would be more exact; which in my case means: 18g ground coffee, ~30s extraction time @~93C, delivering ~40ml of drinkable fluid. This also means that I roast my beans a bit longer ~11min]]
anyway this morning I wanted to make an espresso of Kochere (Ethiopia), but only had 10g left of my roast batch… so I decided, let’s go crazy and fill it up to 18g with the Finca (Guatemala), in short: first not-really-intentional blend. 25 !! minutes later I still had a wonderful aftertaste of a smooth coffee in my mouth. It was a really really nice experience. As with everything I have to repeat this a couple of times to see how much of an ‘accident’ taste this was. Cause especially with espressomachines its hard to get a good ‘god shot’ and it might be that I happened to pull one, while using this blend: amplifying its effect.
So what are your experiences with blending coffee?
