I don't know how many people jumped on the washed Rwanda Mhembe offering that came up earlier this year, but I pity the folks who missed it. It's truly an exceptional coffee.

I still have some left. I took one sample roast to a full city plus roast that left the beans a smooth surface, and have been enjoying the hell out of it as espresso. My profile doesn't matter, since each roaster is different, but I'm quite happy with mine. I'd highly recommend anyone who bought some to give it a try with adequate development for espresso. It makes an incredible single origin espresso, which is hard to find.

It holds up in milk too.

Don't suppose there's any way for us peasants who don't roast to get to try this?

Finally brewed a shot today. Did yours have a savory note? I'm getting a strong tomato flavor. This seems to be a very light roast and I think it probably still needs some time.
