Anyone here a fan of the London roasters Climpsons? I've had their coffee in a couple of coffee shops and I rather like it, particularly The Baron - distinctive, modern but a little darker roast than HasBean without being burnt. Haven't yet tried it in my own machine.
ive always been quite a loyal follower of hasbean. I like the way they do business, their enthusiasm for the product and I even like some of the coffees. Cachoeria in particular has always been pretty faithfull, but it works better as an espresso and kinda gets lost in milk. As do many hasbean offerings. Today I had a play with some more extract stuff (a little darker than hasbean) and some allpress redchurch again (darker yet) and TBH they both punch through milk much more effectively. So I think i'll likely make the move to one of those as a regular choice. I can see what many say about hasbeans coming over as just a bit acidic. I pulled a shot of brazil pedro redonda, and certainly got the bitter chocolate, cherry acidity and so on, but it just wasnt all that much fun to drink. So can anyone else recommend some forgiving blends/SO's that work well in milk, but are tasty enough to stand on their own merit. Something a bit more rich and full bodied than hasbean, but not quite as crazy as some of the uniion stuff (or god forbid, the happy donkey italian blend)
