    Burundi Kayanza Kinyovu Lot 1

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Cracking bean!! I roasted some of this to the first snaps of second crack to about CS9 on a Behmor and have enjoyed it (ie, finished it) at 5-7 days post-roast.

    Probably a bit early to drink but I found this bean really enjoyable as both an espresso and milk based drink. Id previously roasted some on the popper and found it to be nice, but this time it was so much better (and others also thought it was delicious).

    Reminded me a bit of a Yirgacheffe in terms of the aroma, especially through the grinder. Im not good at describing but my particular roast of it had nice acidity with what I thought were some floral like characteristics. Had what I consider medium body (compared to something like a Ghimbi) but it still had a good mouthfeel and smooth aftertaste.

    Anyone else roasted any of this?

    Picture of the roast - they look lighter than what they were.

    Nice looking roast.

    I roasted some a couple of weeks back and used it in a blend.
    It worked beautifully in the blend so i look forward to trying it as a SO.
