All I can say about this is oh my god!
I am on my second batch of this coffee this week, and am in love with it!
Blackberry syrup tom wasn't kidding!
Now I enjoy roasting coffee in my Nesco, and truely enjoy the smell.  This
one was a very new experience.  I normally get the roaster started and give
it a few min before I start really paying attention to it.  Well I got
called away from the kitchen, the first time I was roasting and got back
about 7 min into the roast.
You can't buy candles to make your kitchen smell this sweet!  I thought it
smelled like candied blueberry... or blueberry muffins.  I'll yield to Tom's
professional snout on the Blackberry part though... if you have this setting
in your stash do not let it go bad!

I missed this one, but I am drinking the Kenya Gethumbwini Peaberry (alas,
sold out now), which is just excellent.  It is a powerhouse of a coffee,
with grapes and blackberries hammering you over the head. If you are one the
people who have problems identifying fruit in your coffee, this is one to
try. Superb stuff.

Odd. I got none of that. I was really disappointed. How did you roast  
it?

Once I learned to stop torching my coffee when I got it, I fell into line
pretty quick and was able to bring out the subtle flavors better.  I think
Tom should nickname this coffee "The Blackberry Demon"
