  1. I tried Red Bank Pineapple Candy (F1 Hybrid H3) - Finca San Pedro, Nicaragua. It’s coffee but not as I’ve known it previously. More like a flavoured high street beverage. The coffee taste is very overpowered by an artificial pineapple flavour. The bag actually smells of pineapple. I prefer a bean that has a subtle tang that reminds you of pineapple, not pineapple flavoured coffee which this clearly was. Any other thoughts?
  2. It was the serial number. It’s not something I’m prepared to share online as people use them for the wrong reasons. It’s now sold anyway. Sorry if I didn’t come up to the standards you expect. I just didn’t want to take a brand new item out of its box. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thank you! I’ll give that a try with these. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. “Not available for purchase” and it’s in black.
  8. I’ve tried lots and wasted a whole bag. 20g/40ml in 25s is my preference but it was very erratic. I wonder if the bag was the issue and not the beans. I have a second bag so i’ll try that tomorrow. it’s now gin o’clock so coffee can wait.
  9. In a box! I haven’t even taken it out...
  10. Two bags of San Ignacio from Crankhouse couldn’t be gone sooner. Tasteless and bland. The remains in the hopper will be going up the Dyson.
  11. Yes. I have some interest but they are being a bit slow!
  12. It is very capable, if a bit unpredictable. They leak too. The main issue was the quality of the steam wand, it’s capability and the water /dribble spout. The DB also marks when you breath near it, the slightest touch and it scratches. Metal on plastic. The trade off is convenience the rocket doesn’t turn itself on in the morning or have a pressure gauge when its brewing. The latter bit I can deal with but I now have Siri turning it on when I’m mostly likely to want coffee or - if I’m about 30 mins from home, Siri turns it back on using an IKEA Tradfri plug.
