Roaster thoughts :
The sample roast led to us narrowing down to 3 different profiles. Ranging from light all the way up to to med-dark. What led to us choosing a lighter roast with a particular profile was the long lasting finish and the prominent finish. Higher DTR and rich characteristics makes this LOT a truly enjoyable cup.
