Roaster thoughts :
It was evident when sample roasted first that a lighter roast will be the ideal pick post cupping and brewing. Not to our surprise we were right about the same. A light roast with 202-3 DROP with a DTR of upto 12% elevated this LOT to create a vibrant cup. Notes of orange and prominent cola candy sweetness and syrupiness really sets this coffee apart from other LOTS.
