    Just had my first crack at this... a spro and a flat... insane. Loved it. It's the kind of coffee which reminds me why I'm into this speciality lark- such an array of flavour and texture. Got a feeling it is better black (I preferred the spro over the flat) but will see as I experiment.... I didnt find it overly acidic. Yes theres acidity in there, but it was more than balanced by the boundless sweetness... Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  7. That Rwandan 'mountain' from north star again... I call it, one of the best beans I've ever had. It's so damned sweet, so damned pronounced and is a riot of strawberry. Spro, milk, filter- it is clear accross all styles. Currently in a flat white. Damned tasty. The other beans from them are good too (the Peru is underwhelming given the hype on its page) but nothing that matches this bean. This fella is immense Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  8. Sometimes I get a really open tulip- big gaps between the layers. I really like how it looks. Haha. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

  11. A Peruvian from north star- flat white and espresso... couldn't get a good pour from this this morning. To quick and when tightened still came too quick but was also dragging through some odd solids... will need to have a play. Might be one consigned to filter only...

  12. Flat white, north star natural Rwandan.... it's a strawberry milkshake. Delicious Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  13. Good plan.... will do! Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  14. This fella- wasnt sure when the north star was coming in so picked these up from shop near work I found in last couple of weeks. Delicious bean. Tasting notes bang on in spro; dark plum, nice acidity, hint of vanilla/creamyness; slightly over extracted, likely as I ground both shots at same time which changed pressure on the initial 18g (I'd dialled in just with single for partners flat white)- in flat white it hit me with a black grape soda/tuti fruti vibe; exciting and lively flavour, very different from a lot of stuff I've had recently. Enjoyed very much. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  15. I think the same- in filter this years crop is blueberry insanity. Definitely preferring it to last years. Also agree that the bean 5 odd years ago was insanely good- and probably the best I've had of rocko. The kilo from my last order finished today! Arcangel is immense too- incredibly delicious.
