I 'm still over here in the US doing some training, and got to try some of this bean the other day.

Wow!  So sweet, with loads of fruit and bright.  What a fantastic coffee.

Anyone else had a try of this?   Going to have to grab some to take home.

I love this bean.
I have only been able to buy it roasted, but the ones I have had were excellent. Very pricey, but heaps of strawberry aroma and taste.
Very hard to get hold off in Australia.

This smells amazing, even as green through the plastic bag...

So jealous.

These beans have had some excellent reviews on HB, especially for pourover, chemex etc.

I think they would also be pretty good for espresso.

Let us know how they end up tasting.
