  1. Like others I've slackened off the grind a fraction and a as result upped the dose slightly to slow the extraction, now at 5 bar, the result is a lot sweeter, still some salt but the tropical fruit is stronger and more rewarding in the cup.
  2. Dialled in even further with a 83mm flat then used a pav with pressure profile kit at max 6bar extraction, tropical sweet (cinder toffee) funk as well - very rewarding - still need to pay around with grind a bit but this coffee is top draw comparable with some of Rave and Origins most expensive beans, enjoying this greatly
  3. Second day of these in a espresso based white, at the moment I'm getting some realy tropical notes and some funk, really interested to see what they are but definatly shaping up to be an outstanding coffee once dialed in, im going very fine on a large flat grinder to get the best out of these, im wondering if they have been fermented a little, I should say that I live about a mile from Django so may do a drive past and look for sacks or is that cheating?
  4. About a week into these and the flavours have settled with a consistent quality that has improved each day as the week has gone on, if yours are still under a pile of Xmas crap in the back of your posties van hes been doing you a favour. Still only making espresso based drinks with these on a pav at a 1:2ratio but they are turning out with well rounded flavours in the cup, no funk at all for me at any stage, choc, fruit, wet labrador, Penzance etc etc, I can't place the middle flavour But they are prooving to be a great bean' enjoy- when you get then 😉
  5. bit of a mixed roast, with a certain amount of colour variation in the beans, first go as a flat white It was very much chocolate, almonds, poss citrus as well, early days as yet, but quite enjoyable.

  7. Hi @tvr3I will be doing a few bases (probably) in the next couple of weeks - the lever fever FB group are after some as well - will let you know cheers Jim
  8. If this helps anyone my own personal experience is that the Major provides a very high quality of grind at a very cheap price.
  9. Hi Mark - thats a bargain im happy to pay the full asking price

  11. I like to laugh at the world in general and realise that each of us is not as special or unique as we like to think. This may have been done before but I came across this post online about 14 different types of forum members, l certainly see myself as one of them. People are more complex than this but we can all recognise facets of our own behaviour, or if not we really have big problems. You may enjoy reading this but dont point fingers at anyone or you may prove your a sociopath 😅 Original source is about football but if the cap fits Here 1. The Nazi Admin/Mod/Owner Internet
