  1. Done, good luck with the dissertation πŸ‘
  2. Crankhouse just launched a couple of anaerobic processed selections from El Salvador...Also overloaded with beans right now πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

    Filter Roast only

    Loving the Kisinga from Django, just started a sub so got a few small bags plus a washed Kenyan that's not on the site and looks promising πŸ˜‹ Impressed with James Gourmet too - very reasonable prices for the quality, the natural yirgacheffe was outstanding, my fav coffee of the year so far. Black Cat have some nice beans (Colombian yellow bourbon is ace) kinda wish I'd got some of the Rwandan kinini to compare to the Crankhouse...
  4. Most compostable packaging solutions require an industrial composter to break down the PLA materials, very few local authorities currently have this facility so they end up in landfill. At least they break down faster that plastic and foil, but they're no silver bullet unfortunately. 🀞 a solution comes along in the very near future! Kudos for offering the refill option to your customers and best of luck with the scale up πŸ‘ I'd pay a small premium for sustainable packaging if the beans were also decent. It's a positive point of difference for consumers and the market is only going to keep growing.
  5. Got my parcel too πŸ‘ Gonna enjoy a few iced coffees this weekend πŸ˜‹ Have a good weekend all!

  8. @ahok yep, arrived on Monday so one day later than estimated delivery...very happy with it so far [emoji106] Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk
  9. Interesting tasting notes 🍷🍍 πŸ€”
  10. Pleased to hear! I chanced a few bags that arrived today and the aroma from the Raimutin was very promising...The other Assembly bag was roasted on the 22 April, so I'll start with that and have stashed the rest in the freezer, which is now bursting at the seams [emoji849] Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk
  11. Just been reorganising my stash in anticipation [emoji16] Hope my better half isn't around when it arrives as the freezer is currently full of beans...like more than 10 different countries [emoji23] Looking forward my first LSOL and blind tasting these beans [emoji106] Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk
  12. I’ve just got one directly from 1zpresso and it’s a lovely bit of kit: smashes through 30g of beans with ease and has the potential for any brewing method. Others compare the grind quality favourably with more expensive electric grinders, so I figured it was a better option than the Wilfa in the long run. Plus, I’m tight for space and quite enjoy the ritual πŸ˜€
  13. Most of mine goes in the compost or directly on the soil as a fertiliser/slug deterrent. I’ve heard it’s pretty good to use for exfoliation too - mix with Shea butter or coconut oil...bit messy though!
  14. I’m only a few aeropress brews in, but very happy with the results using the guideline setting at 2.5. Will have a go with the v60 tomorrow, should be a massive step up from the old porlex! I quite enjoy the ritual of hand grinding and was glad I chose this over a Wilfa.
  15. Nice setup, I could do with being more organised πŸ˜‚
