Beans arrived today.  Looks like an expert packed them.  Thanks Paolo... I'll roast some towards the end of the week adn start tasting.

Hi Brett,
I hope that you get all flavours EXCEPT for the brake fluid one that I got.....

Cheers,

Holy sugarcane and.... Strawberry... Or raspberry... Can't work it out yet!  First cup and only 4 days post but this is a cool coffee. I can tell why it seems to polarise people... My wife doesn't like hers.  Loves the sweetness but not the flavour.  There is some chocolate under the other flavours that will no doubt come to the fore with age so Ill attempt to trick the wife next week with another dose!  Thanks Paolo for passing these along instead of leaving them to rot as Ive done in the past.  Lesson learned... If I don't like a bean, I'll attempt to pass them along!

It will improve a lot from 7-14 days

I told you it was a good bean, just TONS of chaff

how did you roast it?

I used the KKto and almost drowned in Chaff.  I'm loving this... I don't know of it will last to day 14.  Guests last night for a birthday party and a take it or leave it coffee drinker downed the first and demanded a second so I'm not alone.  Tons of Crema and a great mouth feel also.

I meant how dark did you roast it?

I have tried it very light and it was more fruity, full of berries

and darker into second rolling crack going off like fireworks, that was good too but after 2 weeks the beans went oily looking but still tasted good.

Right on the first snaps of 2nd crack.  No oil yet almost 1week post but lots of choc and... Yes... Strawberry!

Update: double ristretto short black 1 week post is possibly my favourite coffee this year... Anywhere!  It is so smooth and brown sugar sweet now yet so lively and fruity.  How is this possible ?  It's a conundrum in a cup!

Its actually fairly typical of the natural process, where the fermentation of the fruit on the bean leads to the boozy/manure/funky/winey cup characteristics. These are obviously of greater or lesser appeal than choc usually is... much more polarizing.
