Roaster thoughts : As roasters we are so excited to introduce this new series of rare vareitals. We believe that it all starts here until it reaches us to be developed into the right roast profile. Particularly with rare varietals like this lot, a longer roast with a higher drop temperature tends to mute all flavors. We dropped this coffee right from 194 - 205 and to our surprise we understood the right profile to be light-medium roast around at 205 Drop. It is a clean cup of coffee with acidity from plums, juicy mouthfeel and prominent fruity flavors that leads to a well balanced final cup.
