Well, I finally found how to drink the Anohki.  Straight, I dumped
almost two full Nissan 16oz mugs.  The overwhelming taste of blueberry,
berry, or what ever it was was just too much.  One mug would be fine,
but much more seemed to build up the flavor, making it ever stronger, to
the point of nausea.
Yesterday morning, I was forced to 'Opportunity Blend'.  All I had
roasted was the Anohki, rested for over a week and the Rwanda Kinunu
rested 4 or 5 days.  The blend was 55-60% Rwanda, 40-45% Anohki.  The
Rwanda muted the overwhelming flavor of the Anohki, to the point it was
quite pleasant.
I was reluctant to blend a relatively heavy bodied Indian with a
relatively heavy African, but it worked!  Now, I'll have to carefully
plan the remaining 1/2# of the Anohki to blend.
Oh, the joys of homeroasting!

*Ignore this* if you can't devote a half hour or so to roasting a pound of
coffee. I was reminded of my desperation blend of 18 months ago or so of
50:50 Ethiopian Harar Lot 30 and Sumatra Mandailing.
6 Dec, I nursed the blend 25s into a ripping 2nd Crack, for 18:30 total.
Actually, the very first outlier of 2nd occurred at 16:30
It was a Gzornenblatt roast, and that's exactly where I stopped it.
Gzornenblatt will coast into Vulcanpesos if you don't lasso it.
With 18 hrs rest, this was a phenomenal blend and my funny-looking Capresso
only took 3 backflushes to come clean and warm the head and filter handle.
With a flash freeze of these wonderful beans, the output of BUFF grinder was
breathtaking at 20.
Packed with a 20# wobble of the tamper this double shot followed the script.
Cheers, Mabuhay -RayO, aka Opa!
Towards a more perfect shot...

Sounds yummy!  I neglected to mention my brew was via a French Press
that morning.
