    Following this as I am interested to see what other recommend.

    However for £14 a kilo the mystery is definitely worth tagging into your order.

    It’s pretty good. Biscuit/ vanilla notes I would say. Nothing too overpowering so works well as a flat white in a stronger cup.

    I currently have some of the mahogany jampit hit. If you have never tried this coffee I highly recommend trying it. It is so different to anything I have ever had before. The taste for me is really unique. Took me a while to decide if I liked it or not & still not sure if I would order again but it is an eye opener to how different coffees can taste.

    Their red roast blend is a good solid coffee for milk drinks. You won’t get anything fruity out of it
    R58, Niche (midnight black), IMS screen, VST Basket, Acaia Pearl, Torr GF, Feldgrind, V60, Kalita 185 and loads of other stuff I probably don't need

    Extra Extra dark ethiopian wild highland.

    Be prepared for static.

    Also, Sweet Bourbon is a good shout. The sweetness really does come through along with a nice jammy richness along the lines of bourbon. Quite tasty in a flat white.

    As above, Red Roast, Sweet Bourbon and Jampit good, Mediterranean Mocha also. I found the mystery 10 a bit meh.

    Tusker, Elephant Blend is very nice in milk, not a hint of citrus or floral! We keep re-ordering this alongside more experimental choices.
    Rocket Giotto Evoluzione v2, Eureka Zenith 65E, Niche grinder, Pharos grinder with VoodooDaddy mods, Eureka MDL, Torr Goldfinger, Smart Tamp. Various coffee stuff.

    Have you had mystery 10 before? I found a higher dose helped with it to add a bit more weight in the cup as like you say it is ‘not too strong’
