Right now using areopress while traveling so I will try it as espresso soon but there is a heavily pronounced blueberry throughout the cup. That even my in-laws who don't even get the whole coffee thing can taste the blueberry acidity. On really good extractions I've gotten the same blueberry but also this beautiful sweet pie/pastry taste to it that it tastes likes a blueberry pie. It's pretty crazy.
did you try as espresso, as I've had various beans of theirs and found impossible to pull for espresso. Good for pour over, but espresso on different beans extracted so poorly even on vst baskets. Channeled, gushed, sprayed like crazy as if stale or poorly roasted but they weren't as they were good for pour over. I found out about them online and rarely do I see anyone mention espresso with their stuff, always brew etc.

Upon opening the bag, I had a huge smile from the intense fruit. It reminds me of the intensity of the blueberry pastry Wote Konga people were excited about a year or so ago, but this one leans somewhat towards strawberry (at least on day 4). I'm pulling it on the L1 and LR, and the flavors really come through.
weird, I had multiple orders of various beans of theirs and could not get dialed in at all. Even a friend with a Mono Conical couldn't dial with my beans on his setup.
