This was my third attempt from a week ago. 1 lb batch
My first two roasts ended on the light side and I was hoping to get this one a little darker to bring out some more chocolate notes. I tried to keep the RoR higher so that I could get it darker and still have a declining RoR during development. However, this one kind of got away from me and was a quicker roast than I was hoping for. I changed a few too many things about my roast approach so wasn't able to guide this one very smoothly. I would have preferred a longer maillard and roast in general so I'll have to try again.
As far as taste, it did have a little more hint of chocolate, although I think my previous attempts came out smoother. This definitely isn't my favorite bean but i've been blending it with some other more acidic or chocolatey beans and brewing in a chemex and it's pretty good. My coworkers are bigger fans of it than I am.
