Master roaster's assessment
This bean takes some careful roasting to tease out the sweetness and still maintain the clarity produced by the high acidity. The high level steps followed are:
• Medium temp to drying phase
• Medium heat to end of maillard
• Medium heat to first crack with increased airflow
• Lower heat prior to first crack with 15-20% development time.
We slow down the roast to try and bring out the syrup flavours without compromising acidity.
