Hi. This is odd - do you have any page rules set up? Have you tried purging the Cloudflare cache?

I checked out your GTmetrix reports. For the Cloudflare one, you have a font asset fl-icons.woff2 that was blocking for 1.64 seconds. The response headers for this asset show a CF-Cache-Status EXPIRED, so it was served from your origin server. It looks like you aren’t caching images either? Most response headers show CF-Cache-Status as REVALIDATED.

use webpagetest.org instead of gtmetrix for more consistent page load times and inspect the waterfall to see which elements are causing the slowness

I would make sure that you end up with CF-Cache-Status HIT on all images, js, css, and fonts. If you aren’t getting a HIT, you likely need to adjust cache-control header on your origin or override with cache everything page rules.
