First cup this morning. Wow! Impressive. Really grateful for the coffees I am now getting exposed to via the HB community. Thanks Flint!

Roasted out last bit of D20 this morning. Fantastic aroma.

Sorry for no tasting notes.

Ground, 1 hrs rest. Trying as a PO
It's got that D20 aroma. A nice sweet spice of some kind.

Hot sips confirm this should age well. Very light acidity. Not thick on the tongue.

Milk Chocolate anyone.

Edit: my wife say's there no spice aroma. She says Chocolate too. I'll let her taste test from now on, that she's home full time now.

I'd post tasting notes too but I'm no good at it. But I'd certainly put D20 in the league of ABS and PEN as one of my top coffees.

Mike - It is most impressive how you hit those time and RoR intervals that you've mentioned several times, in spite of this being a much longer roast. Just saying.

Not that it matters much for the bullet, but do you use a no-gas soak? Looks like you may have soaked for 1:30 in this one?

Usually, soak until the turnaround. That temp determines the first gas setting. This small gas roaster retains lot's of heat is the reason behind such a long soak.

suppose I could soak less and start with less gas but towards the end I might run out of power and not have enough gas left to avoid a flick @ 1C.

Thanks to everyone who went into this splitting of a lot. That strawberry fragrance when ground makes for a great aromatic start to a Saturday.

I notice. Daterra as a well established company donated much of the proceeds of masterpiece sales this year. So it has that going for it too.
