    Roasted some this morning.....

    I think I nailed it! ;) ;D


    Apart from the nail, I was interested to see that this bean has a very uniform progression as it roasts - every bean seems to roast and change colour at the same rate and at the same time as all the others. The beans also seem to be very dry in appearance and texture compared to other varieties Ive roasted.

    Just in case people are looking for this bean, Veneziano are now out of Yauco...I roasted up the last of the past crop stuff a while back. We will be looking at getting a Yauco alternative though!

    As a newbie roaster, I d love to give this bean ago. A friend bought some on a previous B-Bay & roasted it. It was TERRIFIC!.

    Id like to put my vote in for it on B-Bay again sometime - if it is available..... :)

    Yes, its great coffee but at $2500 odd per bag you need quite a few people to put a vote in (unless you had a need for 45kg of it)!

    ;)
