    I've made two AeroPress's the day after they arrived, don't know what recipe others have used but I think I'll have a go at grinding coarser and steeping longer.
    Made an espresso yesterday (I know, a bit young - thick crema etc.. Bright.. Steamed a little bit of milk and made a mini flattie with what was left in my espresso cup. Cut through but wasn't the greatest.)

    Think I'll try a V60 next. Very nice.

    Any recipe ideas?

    Cool, just curious if the general resting is closer to ten days than five, or if anyone was impatient.
    ....well in addition to Rhys's early espresso.


    I will be likely opening a bag of something on Friday, should it be this. Hmmmm

    Starting mine tomorrow. Hopefully I'll manage to dial it in quickly.

    18 to 41 in 33s for my first and only attempt this morning. The few sips as an espresso were very nice. I then added milk to make a flat white and whilst it was good, the milk diluted the taste a bit much so tomorrow I shall try a slightly finer grind and I may also make a 4oz flat instead of 5oz as I expect that shall be lovely. I shall probably try cupping it on Saturday.

    17.5-> 38 in 28 seconds for espressos to give a fruit forward, smooth bodied, slightly chocolattey espresso.

    I haven't done a pourover on this one yet (as I still have a quite a few filter beans, and little espresso-able stock to hand), but I am really enjoying the espresso, and as a small (5oz) capp too.

    I seem to need a pretty fine grind to get acceptable tasting/pour time results (just as an FYI for those yet to dial in for espresso)

    Couldn't resist. Just made a V60 with these beans. First taste was the chocolate and nuts - very smooth

    Then getting the fruit creeping up on me but the choc / nuts are more prominent

    Very nice. Will try as espresso later in the week
