I was so excited to get a roast of the Ethiopia Deri Kochoha from Mark Michaelson of Onyx Coffee Labs in Fayetteville, Arkansas. It was a lovely roast of the coffee with so much of the honey sweetness paired with ginger and citrus that popped out in the brew. Mark reached out to me to ask how the coffee was, and so I turned it around on him and barraged him with questions about his approach to roasting.

Mark M: what did you think of it?

This past July we hosted our Sweet Talking tasting up at the Four Barrel training space. There was a great turn out and it was incredible how open and enthusiastic all of the attendees were. Side conversations around roasting carried on for hours after we were done, and in the month and change since the event I've had a number of discussions around this topic come up with participants as well as people who hadn't attended but had heard great things about it.
