  1. This so reminded me of this: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I use WDT (with niche and lighter roasts) and have noticed the same thing. With my partners coffee (which is medium to dark) WDT doesn’t make much of a difference. Thanks for the posting as I don’t think I would have put it down to roast level, as not done much experimenting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Just tried it to see if it was happening to me, but it’s all working on my app. Maybe the old log out and make in again may work? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. @Northern_Monkey ; thanks for posting. This seems like a no brainier. Now just have to figure out how to keep the kids away [emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Same kind of issue I had a few months ago on deciding what to get. Went with the niche zero and haven’t regretted it since. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Yea ur right but that’s called an espresso macchiato to distinguish it from a latte macchiato. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. So I’ve worked in a high st coffee shop in my day and the word macchiato has caused many a wrong drink being ordered. I would always ask what they thought it was when ordering. Simply put Cafe latte and latte macchiato are similar but importantly cafe latte is about the coffee taste while macchiato is more about the milk. So with a traditional macchiato you would use ½ a shot or less. There are also differences in the how you stream the milk (which you mentioned). So what you made is not what I would call a latte macchiato but as long as you enjoy it who cares To answer your question: t
  10. I would have to say it’s all about personal preference. Figure out if you like more chocolate/nut notes or more fruity ones. Then depending on that either go dark or light (or somewhere in the middle). Hope that helps Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. This is only me 2nd LSOL. Do roasters commonly send out the LSOL 500g as two 250g bags? Obviously bonus that they have sent it out this way as I would have ended up splitting it myself. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. I know what your saying and agree to extent. But there are times I have had a new bean and had a significantly more caffeine boost. Sometimes averages are not enough. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I personally would like to see some kind of caffeine information but not at the detriment of the stability of the coffee roasters business, ie if it is cheap to do. I’m sure one of the forum members who are roasters will chime in and enlighten us to why it’s currently not done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Decaf Beans

    Ok cracked open the James gourmet decaf. First off the packaging is amazing, with a self seal bag. The beans looked odd to me, patchy dark in colour and almost greasy (I’m used to light/medium roasts). I’ve pulled two shots now and my opinion of decafs have officially changed. Flavour all there and no empty feeling. I think I can get more from these beans with a little more dialling in. @Power Freak ; your posting came at the right time for me. As the way the shots are pulling are not like my normal. I’m gonna have to rethink my process a little. I’m so glad I stumbled across this thread a
