Anyone noticed the notes on this one? Smokey, sweet red pepper, cola, 
ripe fruit?
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.

I agree this is a stunning coffee. Very different. The aromatics of  
the grind and the brewing coffee fill the room. Although, after about  
day 5 or 6 it lost most of it's zing. It was still good, but all the  
specialness was gone.
