  1. Thanks for this one black cat. I am still drinking mine and it has improved further in the last week. The sweetness is really developing now.

  3. thanks. seems you were well aware of the issue but I just wanted to report it incase.
  4. Not sure where to post this. Is there an issue with new posts? The button that I used to use on my phone now says that nothing has been updated since my last visit, although "activity " shows various comments and posts. Seems to be from the time of the latest software update.
  5. I have only tried my first. I got dry aged steak on the nose, and a definite earthiness. pleasant drinking, I am unable to describe it as anything distinctive though. not sure what funk is, but I dont think it has any.
  6. I think that LSOL is far better value and better coffee. The subscription was a gift so I don't know how much it is a month but if a profit margin was applied to LSOL and the time spent selecting and testing the beans were accounted for with an hourly rate, I doubt it would be any cheaper. What LSOL has is a discussion about the monthly bean, the other subs tell you what it is and then that is that until next month. I am rubbish at guessing but enjoy trying!
  7. mine was Vietnam (4/10) and Costa Rica (6/10) this month. Gentleman baristas sounded familiar, that must have have been last month in which case I found it nice enough but not that outstanding (but may have been a different bath/roast). I would usually chose Ethiopia if given a free choice but I have had some nice alternatives from the subscription, I just didn't rate both of the last ones. probably just bad luck.
  8. I have just had the same. Struggled with the one from Vietnam and had to out it through the aeropress, couldn't get it to work as espresso. The other one was ok but not much better than that. In 9 months these have been the worst pair. It is the last of my sub and I wont renew. It was bought as a gift and tbh with LSOL sending me 500g a month I would rather buy another kg once in a while from somewhere if my choosing.
  9. I always leave mine a bit, prob a bit longer than many others. I have a day or two's worth of beans left in my jar and I will open and finish another 250g before I start on the LSOL beans. I am expecting to try them next weekend.
  10. I think I will put some of these on my birthday list. Save a lot of money for not having features that I didn't really want.

  12. yes. I just have the standard aeropress. I haven't used an equivalent or alternative. to be honest, I bought it for travelling with work, then all travel was cancelled. I am not sure whether it will make the final cut for travel kit, I just want something to make a nice cup of coffee when I only have what I take with me and a hotel kettle.
  13. interested. any idea on the likely dates?
  14. just had a further play. if I remove the band it will just about fit into the aeropress but dont wedge it in too tight, I thought mine wasn't coming out the first time. I have just ground 18.5g for an aeropress coffee to test it out. It feels quicker than my feldgrind but I am not grinding as finely as that is set for so it may be an unfair comparison. Some fines seem to stick inside the grinder, so a little brush may be needed, or a tooth pick to get the worst out. Capacity is going to be 20g or so of the current LSOL beans. The stated 30g is going to be a stretch, both in the top and wh
