Funny-I love the coffee, just went to buy 10lbs more but its gone...
BUT-I have looked around once or twice to see where the dog left the mess while a cup of this was sitting on my desk, its the oddest thing. The coffee tastes pretty much exactly as described, dark fruits, honey, etc but at times, not always, I get a very strong "dogs**t" aroma from it. Thought it was me until I just read the linked thread.
I don't think the coffee is bad, just earthy/funky. Seems best at a c++

The outcome in the cup seems to be extremely variable. Initially there was a huge component of blueberries that was more abundant than any other Ethiopians that I have previously bought, then that seemed to disappear when going through a 20 lb bag, but occasionally popping up as much less blueberry. There is probably a reason why Tom did not list blueberries as one of its flavor components because one can't be assured of getting it from roast to roast whether it be C+ through FC. I am using a Behmor 1600.

I was roasting exclusively on an iRoast II for approx 5 years then purchased a 1kg Toper Cafemino using LP in May, 2012. I have noticed that the Cafemino can produce a consistent roast and cup that excels compared to the iRoast. Worka is consistently fantastic out of the Cafemino.

I roasted some a while back and remembered a slight over ripe strawberry flavor at a c+ fc produced some dark chocolate overtones and some blueberry. what I done was mixed the 2 and it made for a interesting shot of espresso after 7 days rest. I ordered this varital a few times but grew tired of the flavor profile.
