This coffee was grown by the Nembure Farmers Cooperative in Embu County near Mt. Kenya. The farmers involved have an average of just 3 acres of land, and they pool their coffee together in order to sell to the global market.
I'm roasting it maybe 20 seconds past 1st cracks on a drum roaster. 402 degrees bean temp on our readout.
You lose complexity and pick up bitterness as a medium roast, but it does hold up adequately as a dark roast, I would give it 15 seconds into the rolling 2nd cracks for a sweet french roast with hints of winey and fruit in the background.
