Roaster thoughts :
While rotating initially we were achieving a DTR of 20% and above which a long roast of 10.30 mins and only a drop temperature of 203. This thought seems like an ideal roast, when cupped all flavors were muted. We dropped this coffee right from 194 - 203 and to our surprise all lacked acidity and flavor. So after roasting a couple of more sample roasts ranging from 204 - 210 we understood the right profile to be medium roast around at 206 Drop. It is a clean cup of coffee with acidity from plums with prominent fruity flavors and overall ,well balanced.
