I'm currently roasting for esspreso. I recently got a Cona Vac Pot but there's really no wow factor so far so my question is. Is there a specific profile or roast level that might give me more suitable results ?
It may be a question of roast level rather than profile. Since vac pot coffee is more about clarity and definition of flavor layers, if your current roasts are on the darker side, you're leaving less of the bean flavor (and more of the roast flavor) to discern in a vac pot. I'd say try roasting City or City+ for vac, if you've been roasting darker.

If you’re looking for good flavor for drip I would recommend a bean with some fruity tones to offer in a light roast. I have only roasted JBM so far with my Behmor but a light roast IMO is always ideal for drip. GVDub is right, darker roasts just burns the taste away. Try Harrar. If you’re willing to buy JBM a C-C+ gives you amazing milk chocolate tones both with drip as well as espresso. Add cinnamon and rum and you got a true JBM beverage! :D
