  1. I've just dialed it in for espresso and I think that's where it really shines! Super sweet juicy but still complex shots. 18->36g in 35s at 6bar, beautiful. I'll go with natural Colombian. Thanks to everyone involved, it's been a treat
  2. Another great coffee from the LSOL committee! Appreciate it. I find myself mainly having it as v60s, 30 to 500 in 4:40. For espresso I found it to better work with shorter shot times, 18 to 42 in 25s. I taste grapefruit in sugar and some walnut. It has a slight ferment-y edge to it so I'll say it's a honey process. El Salvador honey process for a full guess 😃 Thanks again to everyone involved, Dovy
  3. Just cupped it along side the last month's lsol. It starts with a big body, red apple and almond notes. Despite that it feels very clear. Nice lingering brown sugar finish. I'll guess washed Colombian. Thanks to everyone involved organising it
  4. Absolutely love this coffee! This is my favourite lsol so far and we definitely had some great beans on here! I began with v60 (30 to 500 in ~4min) but I think it really shines as espresso. 18 to 38 at 6bar in 28s gives a sweet well balanced very tasty shots. Tropical fruits with caramel finish, I'm guessing natural Rwanda. Thanks to everyone involved, it's a banger 💥

    Sorry for my late reply! 110 would be fine if you can pick it up from Armley LS12

    Either central Leeds or Armley, I could deliver it within 5 miles too. I may consider shipping if it doesn't sell within a week. Cheers
  8. I'm selling my sage smart grinder pro after upgrading to niche zero. It's about 2 years old and had 25-30kg of coffee through it. Collection only from Leeds for now, £120 please.
  9. I'm down to the last 100g so I'm definitely in favour of earlier reveal 😅
  10. Landed yesterday, thanks for organising this 😁 First try as v60 and its proper tasty. 30->500g in 3:50. Tea like body, think I'm getting cherry in the cup. Looking forward to trying it as espresso now. No clue about the origin but it drew down pretty quickly for the grind setting, I'll guess Myanmar. Dovy
  11. Mine arrived yesterday too, thanks for organising this folks. I've managed to try it both as espresso and v60, definitely prefer the filter. I'm getting some roasted barley smell both from beans and brewed coffee, followed by ripe red currants in the cup. Lovely coffee, thanks again. Dovy
  12. I am actually enjoying it as v60 more than as an espresso. I'm brewing 30->500g in 4:10-30, grind pretty coarse. As I said before I get brown sugar and some stone fruit. My guess is south America somewhere ? Looking forward to the next month's bean as I'm on the last 100g of this one! Dovy
  13. Just picked mine up from the depot, thanks for organising this folks! I completely ran out of other beans so I made an aeropress with these, I like it! Early impressions but it's definitely a washed one, I get brown sugar notes. Will report back if I can pick up any other notes with different brew methods working my way through the bag. Oh and btw these beans are some chunky units! Thanks again, Dovy
  14. Stopped for a coffee in Skipton at Steep&Filter on a bike ride this morning and had the nicest espresso(s) I had in weeks. They used Ethiopia Duromina roasted by North Star, think I'll be ordering a kilo soon to try recreate those amazing shots
  15. Thanks for organising this. Mine arrived yesterday and I just had it on the aeropress, very nice coffee. Can't put a finger on any tasting notes just yet but I think there will be some fancy fermentation process involved, I'll guess lactic fermentation
