A firm forum favourite....Crankhouse Coffee on their second outing under my supreme rule. Dave is a top bloke and was able to switch months at quite late notice so a big thanks to him. The coffee we're getting is a confirmed juicy banger...there's one taste note in particular that is right up my street. We're aiming for dispatch w/c 22nd July so plan accordingly. Guest slots for this one are priced at a very reasonable £16.50 for 500g delivered. Please put your names down below if you want to join for this month. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
I'd like to personally thank Fatboyslim and Daren for managing LSOL for the past couple of years. Fatboyslim would like to step down as co-administrator of this and the criteria for the new applicant is below If you fit the criteria and would like to have a go at running LSOL please send a private message to @fatboyslim and @Daren with a very brief note on why you want to run it.

On we go then. April's roaster...I hadn't actually tried their coffee before approaching them for LSOL so was keen to cup some samples. They were very very generous with all the samples they've sent me. They were all completely delicious. The coffee I chose from them really jumped off my cupping spoon! They confirmed that they were very happy with the roast profile for that one and that was that. This coffee has bags of body and sweetness in equal measure. It might just be one of my personal favourite LSOL coffees ever?!?!? Steampunk's packaging is 100% plastic free and mostly recycled! See their picture below Guest slots for this one are £16 for 500G delivered. Please add your names below: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
There's good news....and there's bad news. The good news is that I am preposterously excited about this month's roaster. Having just sampled the two choices we have, either one could easily go down as one of the best LSOLs ever! The bad news is....that this will be my last quarter running LSOL. It's been a great 2 years but it's time to move on. There will be a separate thread on my succession so please keep enquiries about taking over to a minimum in this thread. If you're interested in having a go at running LSOL keep your eyes open for the announcement. On to the coffee. There is a lot of hype around Kiss the Hippo and from the samples they've sent me it's easily justified. They roast exactly on point for my tastes and seem to have a great selection of coffees. Learn more here https://kissthehippo.com/blogs/pages/our-approach Let's be clear, these coffees are expensive so guest slots are going to be £25 for 500g delivered (definitely cheaper than buying direct). I will try to bring the price down before we finalise everything but I can't guarantee. What I do guarantee is that you'll be getting the sort of coffee I really want to serve up for LSOL. A stonking juicy banger of a coffee. The coffee will be dispatched w/c 17th June. Please add your forum name below if you would like to join: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Cheers!
