R.I.P Coffee

This is not a rested Peace coffee, but a coffee that is roasted in a layer of plant material that is usually removed first. Here is what Tom from Sweet Maria's says
In this process the fruit skin is removed, then the coffee is dried on raised screens without attempting to remove the fruit. The fruit dries to the parchment layer. In normal processing, this is removed at the dry mill, and the green coffee that comes out looks a lot like wet-process green coffee. But it has a different cup; lower acidty, more fruit, more body.

I found the low acid, body and fruitiness to be right on. It is always good to try a new weird coffee to roast. It keeps me out of the roast,brew,drink rut.

I look forward to roasting some RIP. I plan to do a small batch in a popper with the parchment on and a batch with it taken off.
