I'm one of those who found the Anohki to be unpleasant. I'm posting
again because I think I finally figured out how to properly handle
this coffee. A couple of weeks ago I roasted up a 60g batch, put it in
a valve-lock bag, and left it alone for a full 10 days, which is a
much longer rest period than I had given it before. This seems to have
made all the difference. Whereas before, drinking it would literally
make me lose my appetite, now I actually like it. It's still
over-the-top intense, and I wouldn't drink it every day, but I'll
probably buy more in the future.
I suspect that my roasting method (FR8) requires a longer rest period
than a slower roast would, but also this coffee probably just
naturally needs a long time for the intense flavors to mellow out.

Hi Dave,
I'm another one who didn't enjoy the Anokhi that much.  I think that
it is great that I got to try it.  The problem with this coffee for me
is that green onion flavours.  Someone on the list mentioned that it
reminded them of Durian or Jack fruit.  It is this shared
characteristic that I find unpleasant.  I quite like the fruity
flavours, I'm a big fan of the wild blueberry.  I'm thinking that I'll
try a darker roast on the 1/2 lb that I have left.  You are quite
right about the long rest that this bean needs.  It definitely
improved after about a week.

I had issues with the flavor as well.  What I did was leave what I had
roasted and not ground/brewed for about 10-14 days and mixed it with
some Rwanda and it was wonderful.  I wrote a bit about the final
experience here

Cool. I did a similar "opportunity blend" last month, with the last of
my previous Anokhi batch combined with some PNG decaf, and I liked the
results.

The blueberry/huckleberry intensity was mitigated with the heavier
bodied Rwanda, making a wonderfully, almost artificially tasting cuppa.
 Amazing what some beans do.

The anoki is an 'extreme coffee'  I call it.
I can't drink it alone, way too sweet / odd / fruity. But I found that 
even as little as a ten percent blend of it with any other coffee will 
impart enough ofit's flavor that you can definately taste it, without it 
becoming overwhelming like it can easily do.
Mine sat for about a month or so,using about a gram or so a day until it 
was gone and held its flavor that long.
