  1. Ok, so Final LSOL Drum roll ever (here) Coffee was: Rwanda Cyato Anaerobic Natural Location: Nyamasheke District, Western Rwanda Altitude: 2,200 metres Preparation: Natural Varietal: Red Bourbon CoffeeFlavours: Pomegranate | Date | Strawberry This is one of the most interesting coffees we have ever had the pleasure of purchasing. It has a funky character typical of many natural processed coffees but there is clarity to this cup too making it super complex. On the dry there are distinct florals with aromas of blueberry and black grape. On the palate, we find
  2. Happy to do my final reveal (for here) whenever people want, let me know
  3. Lovely Bar towel arrived today. Cracking open my rested beans that arrived last week but I forget to put a picture up of.
  4. So if you take the "mock" away does it become watchable? I can quote similar experience based on living in the UK's longest terraced road in the depths of Dover for 15 years, being part of the community including the local "hub" (community pub) and having long term unemployed friends who were victims of the mines closing and the demise of the ferry industry. There are very similar stories and you can identify with the characters you are just not in the middle of the countryside. I know none of the people there would have felt uncomfortable watching this programme.
  5. I find the kind of people who do not like them and cannot see the humor believe they are in a higher social class OR believe they are in a lower social class when they are not. You could write the same show based in many different places wherever there is social deprivation and just change the background setting without changing the content too much.
  6. You know it was written by people who are 100% from the "social class" featured. Daisy May and her brother wrote it based on their life experiences and they were quite bleak including evictions when they were kids because their parents could not afford the rent.
  7. Only a few roasters have heard of LSOL there was never a [email protected] The premise is what on the whole secures them, the thought of people using coffee skills to guess a mystery bean. I have had roasters say they do not do subs (Carvetti for example) but they loved the idea of LSOL so made an exception.
  8. I am [email protected] and @The Systemic kid will not lock the thread without addressing the points made to them...
  9. Other thread is distracting from the actual bean discussion, please use this one for guesses and taste discussions
  10. Thanks for this post @Coffeebythecasuals We offered the option for the mods to secure advertising from each roaster we secured and were told that was not acceptable and we had to do that On the indemnity point that is new to us and was never mentioned before Patrick put his post up We have never refused to work with advertisers only stated they should be established and proved the can provide a quality lighter roast been
  11. Indeed, we asked to honor our agreements and we're told no. Although we thought the charge was wrong we offered the mods the option to talk directly to any roaster we secured for LSOL about being a sponsor we were told that we had to sort it out ourselves for LSOL to continue and they were not prepared to engage and sort out any sponsorship themselves. I am not incentivised to earn revenue for the forum I am incentivised to get everyone the best coffee I could
  12. From the announcements thread - please continue to post your thoughts on this but...., Dear LSOL Subscribers It is with a sad heart that we need to let you know that LSOL is coming to an end. The forums management and moderators have decided that we are prejudicing their advertisers by running LSOL at no cost to the roasters who provide our beans each month. We were given an option to either give each months LSOL roaster spot to an advertising roaster first OR to introduce a £175 roaster levy each month to non-advertising roasters. For two reasons we cannot d

  14. Did not see this thread until another thread referenced it. I use the recipe from "The Silver Spoon" which is (apparently, legend would have it) the book that all Italian wives receive from the MIL as a wedding present - Always works well for me
  15. Roasting today and trying to hit the post as well although depending on progress (this is our largest ever order at over 56 kilo) that could slip to tomorrow.
