Which Sumatra was that? There are three currently listed but none describe any blueberry aroma.

My very first order from Tom years ago was a Harrar Horse. I got lucky (since I didn't know what I was doing back 
then.Still don't for that matter) and nailed the roast. The most intense blueberry aroma I've ever smelled from a 
coffee bean.
