Don,
I had my first cup this morning and it really is a bright, fruity coffee 
at City+. Tom's notes are accurate, especially regarding the aroma: dry 
aroma is not at all indicitive of what comes in the cup. Scroll half way 
down the page for the notes on this bean:
As I roasted this, I paid more attention to the roast aroma and visual 
inspection of the beans. I did not hear ANY 1st crack sounds. Once the 
initial chaff was done, I only kept the roast going a minute longer.
cheers,
ScoTTT

I picked up 5 lbs of this...
Very strong citrus flavor; too much for me.  I may roast 1/2 lb at a time o=
n
occasion, but I won't be working my way through a pound of it again.
Last night I roasted over 2 lbs of Uganda Bugisu...Love the Bugisu!

Only once have I managed to nail the roast on this bean to my satisfaction.
Note that's one out of six or seven roasts. I became convinced that my
"perfect roast" window was too tiny for me to nail again, and this made me
sad. Recently, I was thrilled to discover that blending a slightly overdone
batch with a "brighter-than-ideal" batch yields an exceptionally nice cup.
The 'melange' approach saves the day again! So I would say...go for the C+,
damn the torpedoes, and if it comes out brighter than you care to drink (as
it did pour moi) then blend with the FC+ and check out the result.
