SM Mohka Kadir & Liquid Amber Blends

Post by JohnB » Wed Nov 09, 2011 8:13 am

Time to bring this part of the forum back to life! Anyone else roasting either of these two blends? The current L/A is quite a bit mellower then the version I received from SM several years back. A lot like the traditional Italian blends that several U.S. roasters offer. Very enjoyable & a lot less caffeine (Robusta) then the last version. Never tried the M/K until recently so I can't say how it compares to past versions but it is very nice. Chocolate/spice/stone fruit if you get the roast right.

I wish I could try some SM blends, but the cost and shipping here to Canada has made me stay away so far. But I may eventually give it a try.

I'm still experimenting with all the traditional SOs ordered online from Canada. I take notes and when I find a few that I think will go together well, I blend them. There are just so many to try !

How about you send me some Mohka Kadir and I'll trade you for some Cuban Turquino or Serrano? ;-)

I like the SM Liquid Amber Blend and having been using it for many years. Frequently, I get lazy with the roasting and buy it roasted from SM. I haven't tried Mohka Kadir blend that I recall.
