  2. Just had the same delivered yesterday. Expected and ordered the white ones but got the recycled brown. I've had then before though and don't notice a significant difference in taste or drawdown esp if I have the same brewing routine. Of course, I watch James Hoffman and see his preference for the bleached and immediately begin to think I've got an interior product!!
  3. I had a sneaky v60 to celebrate its arrival. Got richness and treacle flavours. A few days later, getting a nice grapefruit and mandarin edge to the brew. It's really promising!
  4. These beans have been really interesting. It's been a challenge to get too much out of them through v60. Thought I'd cracked it at one stage when I grinded finer on the field and produced something amazing. But couldn't really replicate it again. I'm going to miss this one; it threw down a challenge, I reaped the rewards a couple of times and I liked working constantly to find the best approach! Thanks for organising!

  6. This thread is true temptation. I've just cracked open a bag of Plot's carbonic Ana Sora. Bright, fruity and complex. Well worth checking out, esp if you liked the lovely hasbean roast this year! https://plotroasting.com/products/israel-degfa-ana-sora-semi-carbonic-natural. I've stopped buying beans from anywhere other than lsol and my local cafe to support local business and take the try before I buy approach; luckily they buy in rosters like plot, has bean, dark arts, bonanza and dark woods so I'm on to something good!

  8. I've looking to treat myself to a gooseneck kettle for v60 brews. The hario air just doesn't cut it really. I was looking at the Stagg stovetop. Before I buy new online, wondering if anyone had a reasonable gooseneck around they might want to move on? Cheers
  9. I prefer the feld47-greater uniformity, control over grind size and I love the kinesthetic feel of manual grinding with something so well made. Saying that, my lazy, go to option is often the wilfa as it is just so quick and convenient!
  10. I've got both wilfa and 47 and use them both every day. With MBK products, be aware they are often out of stock so check on their website for updates. Also be aware that while their products are incredible, their customer service isn't always what it could be.
  11. Its arrived and I absolutely love the design of the roaster and plastic free packaging! Really impressive and a good visual brand! Brewed a later evening v60 (15gr:250gr) and I first thought of strawberry ice-cream! Sweet and fruity and delicious! Thanks @Hairy_Hogg and @Daren
  12. Tried resisting, cannot do it. This sounds like a good one! 1. MinesAbeer 2. hhgclark 3. ratty 4. Marcros 5. Rapid 6. Jollybean 7. tsouthwell 8. Zeak 9. higbert 10.

  13. Have had some stunners from them this year. If these were given away with, for example, a kilo+ of their coffee I could go with it; to spend money on this and not then to get coffee would just leave me thinking I was sorely missing out!
  14. Just a little surprised to see coffee shop branding face masks, especially as they're building up a solid rep for excellent coffee. Equally though they have been very up front with NHS donations through all this and I just did a little search and see that a garish orange hippo is on the more tolerable end of some face mask designs!
  15. It was always going to happen wasn't it?! Any one fancy one? Drink our coffee, wear our mask... My boycott starts here. Likely finishes the next time they bring out a fantastic coffee. Or when I forget I was boycotting them.
