Just thought I would throw out a note of how impressed I was with this
coffee. A really nice combo of chocolate and fruit on the tongue, sort
of mangoish fruit I would say, but not strongly so, just a nice touch
that really adds to the well bodied chocolate.
I think I ended up at FC+ with that roast, though SM recommends FC. It
was an odd roast, though. It never left first crack. I finally pulled it
because the color said it was well into FC even though first crack
seemed to still be going strong. And the taste proves I did the right
thing. If it moved into second seamlessly, it didn't sound like the
traditional second crack sound, as it was just as popping loud like
popcorn as when it started.
Strange, but hey, taste super great so I'm not complaining!
I need to try espresso on this one, for sure. :)
