I smelled them immediately after roasting on Tuesday, tried the first 
batch via my drip cofee maker on Wednesday -- great 
blueberry+chocolate.    Then, same night, tried them in my Santos vac 
pot for again blueberry+chocolate.
I'm skipping it today, to have some more tomorrow.
I roasted in my RK Drum / gas grill setup.  I ran a total of 18 
minutes, with an extended 3.5-4 minute stretch between 1st crack and 
2nd crack.
I stopped the roast when I could hear that 2nd crack was starting -- 
maybe 30 snaps by the time I got it dumped into my colander for 
cooling over the fan.
I culled maybe 6 light tan beans out of 12 ounces.  The others were 
not uniform, but much closer together.  After grinding, the color of 
the coffee particles matches the color of the outside.
By the way, after roasting a couple times in the carport to cut down 
wind problems, I'm now a firm believer in blocking the wind from the 
grill.  I'm now getting a much more stable grill temp.

Terry,
I had the same experience with the Horse and my RK.  I did about the
same stretch, but got out of 1st a bit sooner than you did.  I didn't
go into second crack at all.   I had some yesterday after 6 days. 
Every day was excellent coffee with blueberry and chocolate.  I just
finished the CoE from Bolivia today.  What an awesome coffee!   I will
be pulling shots of Horse tomorrow.  I wonder if the drum roasting
brings out the blueberry more?  I think I'll pull out the Poppery and
do a taste test.

Thanks Terry,
I got blue right away as well. I am sure the getting blue and not are really our individual taste buds at work.

Poppery I is what I used, and I think I took it to about a City+. I'll try a darker roast next time.
And as Ginny pointed out, the Horse benefited from a longer rest. I'll keep that in mind.
All my others have done well at days' rest, but obviously, the Horse is an exception.
 
As I mentioned in a previous post, I got the blueberry fragrance twice during the roast process. So I didn't lose it; it just bloomed late!

All this time I've been reading everyone's posts about blueberry tastes and smells from various beans, but I never could detect any myself.  This weekend I finally got around to roasting some of the Indian Anohki.  When I opened the jar this morning, the first whiff was strong blueberry smell followed by a funky leathery smell - just what Tom describes on the label.  I couldn't taste much blueberry in the cup, but the strong blueberry odor is still there.

Zara,
A couple years ago the same thing happened to me with citrus. I'd been
hearing about it, and even noticed an "odd" flavor in some coffee, but
one day the two came together. A real "ah ha" moment for me.
