My first green beans.
I purchased these beans as a stab in the dark really - I needed to sink my teeth into roasting and christen my new roaster. Why not start here? A good cup score with an attractive blurb.
Well, my first 3 roasts were questionable - honestly, I wouldn't drink it myself... But then I struck gold on a medium roast, switching the gas off mid way through first crack at 7-8mins and dropping just after FC end. This produced a uniform and delightful roast. Fruity and floral on a filter with and smooth on espresso - super balanced acidity and sweetness in a 6oz flatty.
I'm about to buy my next 5kg.
