This coffee is very high chaff and dense, which can cause issues in many home roasters. We do not recommend roasting this coffee in a Nesco, and you will have to reduce your batch size in all the other roasters due to the higher chaff content.
This is a blender coffee, use 10%-15% to add caffeine to your personal blend.
This Robusta is a clean and rich cup, it is very full flavored.
A little earthy to be drinking it by itself but it will add a lot of character and caffeine to your favorite blend.

Imagine Folgers but good.
I bought this to see how bad it is. Drinking it straight. It’s not that bad.
I want to make this for everyone who drinks Folgers.
I tried it by itself at about full city. Woody, earthy with little aroma. Best for mixing. By itself, I agree with another reviewer, it is Ka much better version of big brand pre-ground coffees.

This is my go-to when utilizing a robusta for a blend. I primarily blend this wonderful bean with a Sumatra bean, the earthy tones, the tobacco aroma with a slight hint of bourbon to taste (finer grind). I do use hickory wood for my fuel to roast, which will change the flavor profile just a little- good old Tennessee hickory wood.
