First time roasting an anaerobically fermented bean. There is definitely some fermentation acid funk going on. I haven't loved it as a pourover, but both I and my wife really liked it as an espresso in a small flat white. Lots of wild fruit and juicy too. I roasted on my Freshroast to around 410F with around 11% weight loss. I will go a little darker on the next batch, but we like this one a lot.
I have purchased this bean a couple of times. Every roast profile I have tried has opened up different flavors. From blueberry to wine to a complex liqueur. I have 5 pounds left, but might need to go back for more. I'm surprised it isn't all gone.
I typically do not like Brazilian beans, but decided to give this a try, as I love anaerobic processed coffees. I am so glad I did. I roasted to a Full City, and was met by a delightful, sweet, Brazilian taste, with the funky anaerobic complexity on the back end. Wonderfully complex cup. I bought more, and will try to roast it lighter after seeing they are selling it as a medium roast. Can recommend this for anyone who needs an exciting, but daily-able coffee to drink. Equally good as pour over or drip
I absolutely loved this coffee. Great as coffee or single origin espresso.
People put a lot of effort into creating blends to accomplish what this coffee can by itself. Sweetness, rich flavor and fruity.
