Roasted this one last night.  Gene Cafe, preheated, then 360 degrees for 5
minutes and then 460 degrees until Full City (16:45).  Still needs a bit of
rest, but this is one dynamite coffee.  Reminds me of "Raisinets", that
chocolate-covered raisin confection.  Very sweet and syrupy, fruity, but
with that Costa Rica brightness in the background.  This is a great coffee
for people who want something a bit different, but don't want the over the
top wild notes of some Ethiopian dry process coffees. I see it is still
available, so take advantage.

I have 5# of this, but I haven't roasted anything but Donkey decaf since Christmas.  Still
drinking through the Christmas gift coffee.  Surprisingly, the stuff I got this year was
REALLY good.  From a mom & pop shop that does their own roasting.  Looking forward
to trying this, and the Bali.  Thanks for the review.

Thanks Scotto - I too feel like it is one of the "sleepers" on our 
list. It was one of my favorite weekly roasts we did in the Probat a 
while back, great intensity when you put it next to any other Costa, 
chocolate, raisiny fruit - you hit the nail on the head.

The Costa Rica Dota Coop Dry Process was an absolute hit with the Podiatry
department last week.  I brought them a different bean each day and this was
their favorite.  It may have convinced one of the docs and the RN's kid to
start roasting their own.  Glad I bought 20 lbs.
Thanks, Tom for so many magnificent choices.

That was one of my favs as well. I like CR coffees, but that one was 
wonderful. I ordered some more, but didn't have enough money to get a 
5#, so went with 2#. I had other coffees I really wanted to get, and a 
limited budget. I was glad to see IMV still available, but sad that the 
El Salvador orange was gone (currently roasted my last pound of that one 
yesterday and drinking it very gratefully).
