Anyone noticed the notes on this one? Smokey, sweet red pepper, cola,
Well, I had to try that if for no other reason to taste a coffee with
such a wild array of flavors, especially cola.
I roasted a pound of it in the Behmor on P1, standard setting. I think
P3 might have worked better, but P1 did good as it turns out. My only
issue was first crack was nearly non-existent, leaving me attempting to
judge based on color which is hard in the Behmor due to the red elements
and the small white light, it's just hard to tell where the color is
exactly. But maybe having done several roast in this has paid off.
I was shooting for a city+, and I may have drifted over into the lower
end of FC when it was said and done.
But when I brewed some of this and tasted it, wow! I really could taste
those flavors strongly in this one, except for the ripe fruit perhaps.
That seemed more subtle. But the red pepper and cola, those are
pronounced. Much more so than I expected. And the surprising
part...those flavors actually worked very well together! A unique
experience and a very enjoyable coffee.
If you're ready for, "And now for something totally different," this is
a good one to try. I would buy more of it, but I already have too many
5#ers in my stash. If it weren't for that, this would be a definite grab
for more on my part.
