This is a great bean and lives up to the tasting notes and other reviews but you have to go easy on the roast and get a quick cool down or you can burn up the sugars and fruity flavors. My first roast attempts per my usual routine were very disappointing. After talking to Bhodi I got some pointers for this delicate bean and now I am dialing in the fruitiness I was expecting. I go easier on my temp ramp up and I pretty much stop the roast when first crack is about 90% complete. Usually I’d wait until the I heard the very last bean crack and then give another minute or more to even out my roast before initiating my cool down. That didn’t work with this bean and I’d lose all the fruity sweetness. Great bean though and as described. Hope this helps if you’ve gotten this bean and felt disappointed.
I am really impressed with this bean! At the first few sips I thought I was drinking a fruity Ethiopian bean but less acidic and a fuller body. As the cup cools the fruits mellow out, but it's still present. I'm not getting any chocolate out of this bean and I am not complaining.
I usually raost several different coffees and blend them to get what I like - didn't have to do that with this one.

I absolutely love this coffee! I have a soft spot to fruity coffees, and this coffee is no exception! This coffee is an absolute berry bomb. If you like fruity coffees that explode with flavor, you will love this one. I roast this coffee to a City roast level. It explodes with flavor in the cup, and the aromas are heavenly. I can't recommend this coffee enough!
