    For my taste in espresso I much prefer blends as it adds complexity in the cup, layered flavors/texture if you will. I've tried quite a few single origins over the years for espresso and find them flat/boring regardless of changes I made. To each his/her own as with most things in life.
    good point, Shadow745.

    for me, Yet another reason I will continue to promote and help Sweet Maria is that I like Tom Owen in SM. I have been trying to get him to visit our company in Guatemala for years, but until now, no luck. However, he is always nice in replying my emails and very sincere about everything.

    The guy is genuinely a great person.

    One of my favorite blends is the oldest known blend, Mocha Java. I've had this blend from several different roasters but the latest comes from Klatch Coffee. Most roasters don't use the original beans from Indonesia and Yemen, they use similar beans to try and achieve the same effect but this one from Klatch says they use a genuine Java from the estates of East Java and then mixes in two different beans from Ethiopia to represent variations on the original Yemen Mocha, one from the Harrar region of Ethiopia and a second from the Amaro region of southwestern Ethiopia.

    While I've had similar separately and were very good i prefer the blend. If you haven't tried a Mocha Java blend I would recommend trying one.

    I can't wait to break out the Chemex this weekend and give this one a spin.
