The Luis Alberto Ambito was very limited, so one pound was all you could buy.

Steve, I roasted 8 oz in the Behmor to City+/FC.  I've found that coffees roasted in the Behmor take a longer rest to develop, and this was true here.  After 5 days, it started to come into its own beautifully - well-balanced and interesting from start to finish.  Really nice sweetness as it cooled.  I found it more complex than the other highly-rated Columbian, but both were very good.

Different brewing techniques can yield different results, as I'm sure you know.  I've used a Hario and a Bonmac enough to know that the former emphasizes brightness while the latter brings out more body.  Try a slower drip, if you can.

may I suggest that you always buy 2 pounds of any coffee.

for my coffee money I always taste the roast right away, after a day or two
again and ...

since I use 90% of all my coffee as SO espresso in cafe crema it works for

I dump a sm bunch of roasted into my Solis 5K and see what happens.
