Ethiopia Organic Idido Misty Valley DP (every roast is a new experience in
tasting fruit with the sense of smell!)
Glad the RK Drum is on its way ...

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.

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!

Jeremy,
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.

Eddie,
     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!
---Jeremy,
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
pepper.
