I just ordered a set of Dragonfly's coffees. Lean hammer and the Kenya Karindundu are labelled light roasts, and the beans are still wrinkled, indicating a very short roast time after 1st crack onset. But the roast color is dark, and there are prominent light caramel flavors. The Agtron of 55/75 indicates a fast, hot, low airflow roast, so that the outer bean is much darker than the inner bean.
The taste however belies these stats. Both coffees are massively sweet, with no hint of grassiness, and a pleasingly restrained acidity. In an interview with a local food blog
, Tamas Christman complains about all the hipster lemonade coffees around town, and says he roasts light but sweet. Judging by these two coffees, he has succeeded.
I pulled these on the Bianca with twenty five seconds of 2.5 bar preinfusion, and a grind setting that would work on a VST 15 basket. We also had the Lean Hammer on levers at a recent meet, where it came out as sweet, but a little more fruity. So no real suggestions of what to do on a conventional machine; but it is a really lovely treat on levers or profiling machines.
