12.33 a pound in 10 lb bag or

13.78 for two pounds or

14.50 for one pound.

Free shipping over $50.
I did not try roasting the Wush Wush, however, I did buy it roasted from Revel as part of the Decent community coffee of the month (https://revelcoffee.com/ethiopia-wush-wush/). It is one of the most interesting coffees I have tried so far. It was a good 50-50 split between those who liked it and those who hated it. Tasting aroma/notes ranging from watermelon jolly ranchers to dirty gym socks. It definitely has a funk to it which closely resembles to Chinese sausages to me.

The fact that Klatch is offering the green bodes well for me. And this is big praise in my case, because my last experience with it roasted via Revel was atrocious. The coffee last year looked like floor sweepings, about 60% or more were quakers, stunk like hell and were so heavily processed that it didn't even resemble anything tasting like coffee. But if Klatch is willing to put their name behind it, it must be at least better than what I experienced last time.

For those that like darker roasts for espresso, this one might be good a good one.

I've used 3-1/2lbs of Revel WushWush over the past 6-weeks or so and have been enjoying the sweet, floral and fruitiness flavor profiles with a couple caveats: The aftertaste, which Coffee Review mentioned and deducted for, is off-putting but not a deal breaker per se.

And if you're after the intense fruity and floral taste characteristics of this bean offering, the window of opportunity (like most of the naturals I pull) is really short: 2-3 days max with day 1 starting at 4-days post roast. After 6-7 days the big fruity-floral notes drift to the middle/back with sharp dark chocolate coming to the mid-to-forefront.

Very curious to hear how you guys do with roasting your own and using Klatch's variant. I did just order 2# of roasted WushWush from Klatch to compare...

Morning All...Shoulda posted this awhile back for https://www.roastmasters.com/nicaragua-regalo.html

Really Enjoy this coffee. Lotsa banana...general fruit esters. Banana starts to fade when you near 2-weeks post roast. Banana not mentioned in the Cup characteristics but has been present in everyone of my roasts (near the end of First crack or immediately following the finish). Also, probably the largest beans I've ever roasted. -LN

Just ordered 5lbs of this Aged Sumatra. Looks interesting, if not terrible. It should be an experience.

I had a 3 year old one. It was like when we played high school football and the socks were on their 4th day, after lots of rain and snow, and they never got fully dry, sitting in my locker in a musty basement below the pool. Taste might be similar...
