I hesitate to write about a bean that's no longer available, but... future
reference should it ever be in again.  I was digging in the crates on
Saturday to pull beans for my weekly roasting when I ran across a couple of
packs this bean: Peru Las Delicious - Zenon Vargas.  I roasted it up using
my HG/BrM as follows:
2:00 low power/close to the beans, then hi power and close until the hay
stage.  Pulled the HG back a bit for a ramp up to first at 6:30.  Once 1st
really got rolling, back up the HG a bit again.  Pulled at 10:30 at a light
FC.
I can't get over how sweet this coffee is!  I'm enjoying a cup made in the
AP with a poly filter (thanks, Scott!).  I've enjoyed it over the last
couple of days in the KMB and the WonderClown 9000 (aka Poor Man's Clover,
aka chemistry lab vacuum set-up) as well, though I think both of those
methods will be better with poly filters once I get my hands on some filter
media big enough.  I did a side-by-side taste test using paper and poly
filters in the AP and the poly really let the sweetness through.  Also a
much smoother cup.  Sweet, nutty, well-balanced.  This would be a crowd
pleaser for sure.  I'm glad I have another pack to roast yet.

I agree the Peru is tasty. We just roasted up a batch last week and have
only a pound left. I can't drink enough coffee to keep up with all the great
offerings Tom has. I missed my work's holiday party tonight because of
snow.  I provide the coffee and usually take two KMBs with me to keep up
with the demand.  I have probably 5 lbs of beans roasted up, so will just
have to give some away when I go back to work on Monday.  I haven't yet
tried the poly filters, though Scott sent me some in the mail at least 6
months ago. Guess I'm going to have to stop playing with my computer and do
some experimenting.
Take care,
Ann
