  1. I had the Cordillera Del Fuego from Colonna in September last year and my god... It tasted heavily of cinnamon. I assume this 'cinammon added' approach was being used in that lot. Interesting that Maxwell states both that he "suspected it had cinnamon added at the processing stage" and that "not stating this is 'cheating".. And yet, it still got sold by Colonna. I do agree though, it should be stated if this is added during processing but it's still an interesting method to use and, as long as the process is transparent, there's no reason to stop doing it.
  2. Got some exciting stuff in over the last week! The 2 Colonna offerings are excellent! The Sebastien Gomez Natural is boozy but clean!
  3. The wife has the Opal pod machine and the Colonna decaf pods are pretty good https://colonnacoffee.com/products/capsules-decaf
  4. Yeah, great photo! It's made its way to the Dog & Hat Instagram already @tripleshot
  5. Just thought I'd post this incase anyone is interested. Square Mile are now stocking Pullman tampers (including Big Step) and distribution Chisels. I'm tempted for Christmas! https://shop.squaremilecoffee.com/collections/the-weekly-gift-edit
  6. @tripleshot, I agree. Have the same bean and am getting similar notes in brewed and espresso. I thought they'd just need more rest but it's still apparent after a couple of weeks

    Black Friday

    https://coffeeforums.co.uk/topic/56158-gardelli-premium-rarities-30-off-black-friday/
  8. 30% off Gardelli Premium Rarities with the code 'PREMIUMRARITIES30'. https://shop.gardellicoffee.com/22-premium-rarities This is for someone who's looking for something verrrryyyyy special. Prices are very high but the coffees appear to be extremely unique.
  9. Who would the other 2 be @Mrboots2u? I'm Looking to get something special over Christmas and have tried alot of the well regarded European roasters (Drop, The Barn, Gardelli - found the latter two excellent!). Looking maybe at La Cabra?
  10. It's crazy to think that one of the most unique and limited coffees in the world currently can be, at a regular 15-18g dose, be brewed at a similar price (£3 - £3.60) to your average high street festive coffee 🙃
  11. I find myself in a nice position with my Colonna subscription. This month's Rare offering is a Panama Gesha and I was also sent a free 60g sample of the Limited Release Rare beans... Also a Gesha. The Limited Release is a Colombian. Looking forward to trying both!
  12. Have this too! Tasting great in v60/aeropress/french press. Tasting reminiscent of some Kenyans I've had through paper filters, with an intense but delicious acidity. That creaminess is accentuated in French Press though. Very nice!
  13. This is a 18g in > 36g out shot (93C brew temp) with ~180g steamed milk. Not tried as espresso just yet but I prefer longer shots anyway for my espressos (or lungos?)
  14. Square Mile Sweetshop tasting good!
