In addition, Klatch will sponsor one member for each version. Since time is short, Team HB will pick the first lucky winner. But for V2 and beyond, the winner will be selected by community vote as was done for the Home Barista MVP Celebration!
Feedback on tweaking the espresso blend for the next go-around are welcome on this thread. I'll also post more details about nominating the V2 winner this weekend. Thanks Mike and Klatch Coffee!

Heather and little Peary kicked off the first of 4 straight Golden Beans, the largest global roasters competition, and now this year, Holly has our newest Klatch baby and all of you, our Klatch Family, get to help create the blend. Every two weeks we tweak and experiment to create the winning Golden Bean. Our first blend by Roastmaster Mike, features a 40/60 blend of Panama Elida Natural and our newest Ethiopia Natural Anaerobic Oro Yeast. Both roasted about 30 seconds past the end of 1st crack with extended development time for extra sweetness. This fruit packed bomb is sure to please but send us your comments so we know how to improve it every two weeks. Maybe lighter, darker, less fruit, more acid, etc. You tell us and we will tweak to perfection, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and please provide us your roast date on the bag..
