  1. Thanks for arranging this Tom. I’ve only started these this week, and dialled properly today. Taste fantastic perfect Christmas bean IMO. I’m off to read up on exactly what anaerobic process it. [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. I’ve been having a play with these this morning as espresso. Gradually going finer and finer but with the same extraction ratio 18=>42g. I’ve come to the conclusion that my starting point was by far the best. [emoji3] 18g=>42g in 28 secs. For my grinder this is the standard espresso range (1.2 on my dial). Red fruit and choc. Going finer was leading to more muted fruits and tobacco tasting notes not my cup of tea (or coffee) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. I took me a while but I got there in the end. [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. It’s still got the brush metal finish Dave Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. The gold cog is an absolute swine. I used a extended torque socket to get mine off. I was going to do a metal on metal mod on mine but managed to pull the thread through the vane. It made taking it on and off easier [emoji6]. I did the heat shrink wrap in the end. I’ve since done the fudge funnel mod and fitted an auber timer. Great grinders, I’ve had mine years.

  6. I too think it’s Central American, is guess Guatemala but I going with Panama as a wild card. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. I’m still playing around with these 18g=> 43g in 29 secs. I’m getting red fruits sweetness with tartness acidity and choc. Almost like cranberries (although I have had said some in porridge this morning so it could be down to that).[emoji3]. I quite like these beans for espresso Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. I’ve only just started these as espresso. 1st attempt was over 50 secs. So I’m guessing going coarser. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. I’ve not done for years Frank. It was a brief flash in the pan (like Rubik’s snake). I think it was on the back of Matt Perger doing it in a Barrister competition. It’s a good way of slowing down the shot if you can’t grind any finer. I’m sure the reason MP did it was for this reason. I think they were using EK43 grinders that had been aligned in a “different way” (I’m sure the term misaligned was deliberately avoided). I’m not 100% but someone can correct me on this.

  10. Tried these today in a CCD 2:00 on the field grind (think it was too course) left to steep for 40 mins. Nice enough No prominent flavours. Quite nutty though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. I have tried going slightly finer with this 18g => 38g 36secs still nice but it loses the fruit intensity. This was at 0.7 on my grinder. To put it into perspective my normal espresso range is 1.1-1.3 0.75 seems to be the sweet spot on my grinder 18g=>42g in 29secs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. So far this is one of favourites for espresso this year. Thanks for organising this
  13. First attempt today as espresso. Went mega fine 18g=>40g 30secs Intense fruit red sweet and funky Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Tried these with a CCD today 20g in 1:10 on the Feldgrind. Left it for 35 mins. Sweet Fruity strawberry. Really nice. I can’t wait to try these as espresso. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
