    Experimental/funky beans

    I've not seen it before so imagine it's seasonal. https://www.darkartscoffee.co.uk/collections/all/products/trouble-colombia I really didn't need any more at all but want to support my local and when they open packs just to make a cup and see how 'funky' the beans are, I feel I'm on to a pretty damn good thing!

    Bought my first a dark arts coffee after tasting at my local cafe -very special and, yes, white wine fermentation does give it a real acidic wine kick. An intense coffee; not one for everyday drinking!

    Got this too! Looks very interesting! I was a little disappointed it was a British roaster this quarter but the coffee may make up for it!
  4. Thanks @Daren and @Hairy_Hogg. Must be some work but lots of fun to organise this. Imagine you and @Black Cat Coffee must love that 25+ people are tasting or soon to be tasting the coffee, thinking about it , experiencing it and sharing their thoughts!

    Sale is full of those and, worst of all, people do go to them too. Grapefruit is a refreshing change and pleased it is finding ways to adjust and thrive!
  6. Just arrived and it's about to make friends with my v60. Might be too early for friendship or may be love at first sight?

    Any one venturing further south to Trafford and beyond should definitely check out Grapefruit just outside Sale Tram stop. Amazing selection of beans, great filter and espresso, wonderful chat and a nice vibe. It's only a hatch right now but it's so with a visit!
  8. I really wish I didn't like their coffee. I don't like their social media. I'm not keen on their brand. Their marketing isn't really to my liking. But their coffee, despite my best efforts to dissuade, is pretty spot on and I've not had a 250gr bag from them so that I didn't find tasty and pretty well roasted
  9. Just found this: https://royaldesign.com/eu/svart-aroma-coffee-mill-cgws-130b-black Although depends on how much you want it as it's a bit pricy compared to normal prices!
  10. Maybe have changed due to COVID etc-order two from her in April this year!
  11. These came from Hoffman's Christmas present ideas last year and are comparable in price to UK ones if you're buying 2 or more! They're unique, completely pretentious but fun and were the incentive I needed to start cupping coffee a bit more... https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/UmeshisoShop

    The really annoying thing is that it probably works...

    These do look interesting. Does any one tend to get large amounts of emails from Horsham of the 'how are you? It's been a while...' or 'did you forget something?' variety. Great Roaster, fantastic coffee but beginning to really dislike their automated mail settings-it's far from 'funky'!
