I'm new to coffee. I tried experimenting and found that mixing dark roast and medium roast, both arabica, tastes good.
I thought that I could get the acidity of medium roast that I can't get from dark roast, and I can get the thickness of dark roast that I can't get from medium roast.

Is it a strange thing to do with coffee? Will I be ridiculed for it? lol

Thanks

Blending beans is an art. Sometime the blended product is better than the parts used to make it. Every once in a while it seems to inherit everything which was bad about the separate beans.

My wife was low on home roasted beans, so she decided to blend a Costa Rica, Colombia and a Brazil roast... and to my surprise it captured the best characteristics of all the players. I knew it was blind luck, and would not suggest it unless you have an excess of roasted beans sitting around.
