This is as much a List test as reply. (sent Christmas Kona Gift results
twice 10:42am and again 3:39pm and neither has posted)
Anyway, my longest Christmas "roastathon" was a few years ago and lasted
about 12 hours non-stop back to back Rosto batches, roughly 3 per hour. But
since Christmas gifting is the only time 1/2# batches become a burden still
have no plans for larger roast capactiy.

Ultimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path. To know I must
first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.

Guatemala Fraijanes - Finca Agua Tibia
African Highlands WP Decaf
Costa Rica La Magnolia SWP Decaf
Brazil Cachoeira Yellow Bourbon

tasting fruit with the sense of smell!)
Glad the RK Drum is on its way ...

I just finished this one up this morning. It wasn't my favorite Kenya, but
was a nice break from all of the low tone coffees. I agree that the lemon
and grapefruit were very good. I am going to roast this afternoon. I am
not sure what I am going to roast. Tue roast schedule is ready to go!

You are indeed correct ... lemon and pink grapefruit today; all of the spice
is gone. Citrusy, but not tart. There is a subtle, but present aftertaste
of sugar running down your throat ... like when you add too much sugar to a
cold drink and you drink the last of it.
This really comes to life with rest. I'm sorry this one is gone ... I would
have loved to have some of this in the stash.

Glad you got to try this out! Ndaroini does have a very pleasant zing
to it. Last time I roasted it I got some grapefruit in the cup. Cheers!
I just got around to roasting it this past weekend and am enjoying it now.
I have a cold or something right now, but very oily / silky and a good lemon
