Roasted Sunday afternoon to a good FC+ ground and brewed in a FP this am
so 3 days and change rest.  Smooth and Mellow, can't quite get over how
good this coffee is.  I have no idea why but I migrate almost totaly to
the africans and asians/indonesians  just cant get into the central and
south americans, but perhaps I have not tried the right ones.
Back to the Congo-flat out good stuff.  anyone tried this as an espresso?

No espresso here, but I've found the flavor to really explode on day 5. 
Still have more, wait until Friday then re-brew just as before for
comparison.  It's a good coffee, and I agree about the Africans and
Asian/Indos.

David,
It is awesome as a S.O. espresso.  Pressurized extraction brings out some
nice chocolate notes.  It makes for a husky shot, so if you are looking for
smooth, go for a Sumatra SO.  If you want a nice bold shot, the Congo was
great.  A great bold shot with some nice chocolate aftertaste.

Did anyone else really enjoy this bean?  There was a nice cedar note in the
cup that was very enjoyable.  I liked it much more than I thought I would.
I have to say, I'm really starting to like the 'gamey' East African beans
after the Congo Kivu and the Zimbabwe Dandoni Estate offered a few months
back.  That region is slowly earning 'preferred region of choice' status for
me.
14 more pounds of SM goodness were shipped yesterday...Come on Brown!

Kevin,
To be honest, all I remember now about this coffee is that I liked it
much more than expected, something like your experience.

i don't recall any cedar, but it did take a few roasts and lots of rest 
to get it to my liking. once i got it to a nice FC or FC+ and i think 
about 7 days rest, the dark chocolate taste was phenomenal. before that 
and on previous roasts, it was just a little too gamey for me.
