I lost my detailed cuupping notes from this roast, which was my first try at the bean. I have since tried other profiles, but this one is still my favorite.

: As I said, I lost my detailed cupping notes, but here is how I described this roast when I wrote to Tom after my first tasting: "I roasted my first batch today and got a wave of strawberry candy out of the cooling tray. I brewed a cup right away, and it is full of rich strawberries, tawny port, and honey, and has the richest aroma of anything I've roasted this year."
If my memory is accurate, I gave it 92.75 points using the Tastify scoring system. This was one of those coffees that tasted best to me on the first day, but it was delicious all the way to the end of the batch. In addition to what I describe above, I also noted some serious rose & lavender notes in the aroma.
