As a FC/FC+, I'm finding this bean very fruity in a pleasantly different way. Almost no citrus tang, but also very low on sweet. A deep dark cherry undertone that verges on bittersweet chocolate. Insanely smooth and just enough bitter to give interest across the tongue. Very full bodied, and the aroma is vastly different than the taste. The sweet chocolate smell and deep cherry flavor swirl into each other as a complimenting contrast. I find myself wanting to take a deep breath in through my nose before every sip. Roasted with a Gene Cafe roaster. Preheat to about 350, full heat untill yellowing, down to 420 untill brown, full heat again to very first hints of second crack. Fast cooling with cooking tray. ~12.5 min roast.

Top three for me, Very fruit-forward then the sweetness follows, like drinking a fru fru drink without the added fru fru. total roast 9 1/2 min. roast, dropped 1.5 min after FC. Roasted light, 12.2% water loss. it's like drinking fruit coffee if that is a thing.

This 100% Yellow Bourbon honey process is excellent and came in my sample pack. As pour over, it is superb coffee that everyone would love. Great for gifting too. Normally I like City roast but roasted this just into SC. Perfect! A must order.

This coffee at medium roast or a darker roast is an excellent tasting coffee. I roast this one about one minutes past first crack and I also take it to second crack it has a heavy medium chaff. I also take this bean after roasting and add about five to six drops of peppermint oil from DoTerra and put into about two pounds of beans and let it sit sealed for a week then I grind for a great cup of coffee

This coffee is delicious I roasted it to first crack and just before second crack then a second crack plus one minute all three are good coffee but the medium and dark roast are the most flavorful

Received for free in the Intl. Coffee Day Sample Pack. Roasted to City + in an SR 800. Full disclosure, I'm not a huge fan of 'fruity' coffees, Ethiopians and the like. I tend to favor the bolder, nutty, chocolatey coffees with a buttery mouthfeel. I sampled this as a pour-over, French Press, and an eapresso. Each method brought out subtle differences. This is probably my favorite fruit-forward coffee that I've had. While some of the others tasted almost artificially-flavored, this one had a more subtle, natural taste. Creamy texture that coats your mouth, leaving a pleasant aftertaste. This will be a good, if infrequent, change-of-pace coffee. Would probably pair well with desserts.

Superb coffee. The description above is apt. The coffee is very sweet and has a good fruit taste. I was shocked to see how low the price is. This will be our new go to coffee to roast for gifts and to buy in bulk! Of course, we will be roasting for ourselves too

***Update from our last review*** WOW! Can't get enough when French pressed. If you enjoy this as a drip I highly recommend French press, it makes it come to life. French press brings another layer of complexity and full body to this cup of coffee. It is a great cup of coffee when pressed.

We tried it as light and medium roast. It was more fruity and less creamy in the light roast. In the medium roast the fruit and creaminess had a better balanced flavor and felt like a fuller cup of coffee. It was overall a very satisfying cup of coffee. Highly recommend roasting to a medium.

All I can say is WOW!!! This was so worth the wait... ordered this coffee to try something new. The purchase was made just before the big winter storms across the US. As such I ended up waiting quite a while for the shipment to arrive. The coffee did arrive! I roasted up a batch as soon as I could, excitedly waiting for that first sip. The beans were placed in my Gene Café roaster. 14.5 minutes at 455 degrees F after preheat to achieve what I would call a City Roast level. The roast process, as far as the look and texture, was very comparable to roasting decaf beans. They finished out a little on the dull side yet nice and plump. I let the machine continue through on the cool down cycle (C.O.L) Finally I let them sit over night. I will definitely order these beans again.
