Unbelievably delicious. Smells like blueberry pancakes while roasting, and tastes like triple berry muffins in the cup. This might be the best coffee I've ever had.
Roasted this City/city+ and it was fantastic! Blueberry muffins!
Roasted on a hottop to about 30F past start of first cracks and 10s past the end of them, with a total development time of 21%. First trying this as a V60 after a week of resting.
The first impression I got from this was the smell from the exhaust while roasting: blueberry pancakes. Then every time I opened the jar before brewing it, the same overwhelming smell of blueberries was there. What I was expecting based on this was a blueberry bomb like a Sidama (kinda like Bodhi's previous batch of Ardi from mid 2020). Turns it was not what I expected, it is more than that.
For one, the blueberry tastes isn't as strong as it smells. But that's only because the berry note actually lands between blueberry and cherry; the overall impression is very strong, though. I'm also getting a tart note on the back of my tongue that's like cranberry or dried strawberry. it's smooth which with its body makes it like drinking juice (hence Bodhi's "juicy" note?). It's got great sharp acidity how I roasted it, but keeps surprising sweetness. And there's an underlying spice element there, maybe just like a hint of cinnamon. Really the only time it started tasting like what I was expecting was as it cooled to room temperature, when the notes were pretty much just berry.
As far as how to brew it, I disagree sightly with Bodhi's assessment, because I think it would work any way you want to make it. Of course, a pour over would be a good starting point if you're to that point of being comfortable with your technique (ie probably best not to use this one for learning how to do a pour over). More immersive techniques would be good, too, especially if your technique can bring out the subtle notes (like Aeropress) that make this special. Cleaner brews would work as well, and probably give a berry candy impression. Now going out on a limb: espresso could work if you can tone down the acidity, and I'd even say a cold brew would actually be pretty special (again, probably would get a berry candy impression that way).
Delicate blueberry flavor (dominate aroma in the freshly ground coffee). Very sweet. Strawberry is subtle. Berries and sweetness merge into what I can best describe as a crunchberry (like the cereal) if it were a real thing. Roast it a bit less aggressive on the heat application than washed, high altitude and you will be rewarded with a unique and delicious fruit forward cup.
