Haven't tried Klatch yet but taking advantage of that discount. :)
Ordered some decaf espresso and the Panama Natural. If it's anything like the one from Brandywine I had last year, I can't wait. It was definitely a fruit bomb as this one is described.

Just ordered a big bag of Belle, and some Worka Ethiopia. Decided to try that as a SO because I like a good Ethiopian.

Thanks for the advice.

Has anyone tried the Brazil Klatch Diamond Reserve?
Thinking of placing an order for some of the Ethiopia Worka and Rwanda Huye, and tempted to try the Brazil as a base for some blends.

Sounds similar to the Fazenda Rainha Natural which we use a blender most of the time. Both naturals. So I am guessing the Diamond is good too. But if you are buying already roasted just note they do it Medium, whatever that means to them.

I've roasted one pound of the Brazil Diamond Reserve so far & I can see why they go with a medium (Full City?) roast. I ended this roast 24*F after 1C took off with a 2 minute development time. Even though this put the roast about mid way between a C+ & Full City roast the Blood Orange Klatch mentions is more of an in your face citric rind punch. I'll take the next/last roast of the 2 lbs I bought a bit darker & longer? to see if it tones a bit.

There was a 25GRIND 25% off coupon for Klatch for Easter weekend. I don't think it's still available.

My beans arrived yesterday (Weds). Roast date was Tues, I guess the advantage of living nearby.

So must wait a while before I can try.
