  1. My friend at Fallen Tree Coffee Truck https://instagram.com/FallenTreeCoffeeTruck has a lot of coffee left over from an event - Dear Green's pulped Brazil from Fazenda Pantano. https://www.deargreencoffee.com/products/brazil-fazenda-pantano
  2. I recently ordered 2 bags of this as it was the first fresh coffee I ever ordered and wanted to try it on my new machine but my palate has just got too used to light roasts. It is really nice though. This will cost you £12.90 delivered from CC. It was only roasted on 29th Oct so is ripe and ready to go. Payment will be in the form of a forum donation and I'll cover postage. £10... make me an offer.
  3. Hi All, Quite new and won't even have my classic until tomorrow, but i've bookmarked one or two sites that describe the taste with a chocolately, nutty and one even with an Orange taste but before taking the plunge I thought it would be worthwhile asking forum members for their recomendations who's actually had experience with different sellers and tried various different roasts as it seems that even some members have had ups and downs with established sellers on here, and of course if you want to add in your own favourite please share
  4. Hi, first post and new member I love coffees with fruity tastes such as strawberries, lychees etc but get quite overwhelmed when looking for coffee beans and end up sticking to the same beans and roaster. So... Just wondering what recommendations people have for coffees with fruitier notes such as berries, lychee, melon etc? Lighter, medium, dark roasts... I'm easy.
  5. Ok, so just finishing off the Rave Fudge Blend. Now I have worked my way through quite a few beans over the years, most of Rave/James Gourmet and some Foundry, with the odd random bean from further afield. I have a preference for chocolate/nutty/caramel type notes. Roast wise I'm happy to try any, so no massive preference for the purposes of trying new beans. I'll be using it primarily for Flat Whites, and potentially for chemex. But as I said, primarily Flat White. So, nice and simple, what have you tried that was nice, and I know everyone is different, but Im willing to give anything a try.
  6. For all those people that have the itch, to just keep spending money on coffee stuff. When you need another thing to add you signature... Who will be there first to blink ? https://coffeez.kr/8
  7. Hey, I use an aeropress for work and I’m enjoying the long steep method by far after reading about it on here. I’m finding the coffee so clean and I can really taste some of the complexities. Lately I tried Horsham Coffee Roasters Kenyan Kianderi, which has been my favourite so far. Tasting notes of Rhubarb, Blackcurrant and Toffee. I just went to their site to purchase some more and unfortunately they don’t stock this bean anymore. So I’m after some recommendations for a good bean to try in my aeropress. Thanks, Tony
  8. Please check out those amazing coffee paintings from Got Coffee website: - Coffee Paintings
  9. Hi can anyone give me any feedback or thoughts on this roaster / Any information will be hugely appreciated !! Thanks Sean
  10. I work for a data management company, and as demo in our briefing centres we've created an analytics dashboard for coffee. It tickled me, so I thought I would share... This is displayed on a large interactive screen next to the coffee area in the briefing centres. One of our engineers reverse-engineered the output from the service port on Jura machines and designed a little listener (embedded in a coffee cup, appropriately) that logs it to a central location - these are now installed in the Jura machines in offices across the globe. We have a bunch of Franke machines as well, so those are probably next on the list to crack. These are two of the standard dashboards, but there are more that break down coffee output according to what department the machine is located in etc, so you can see different times when different departments take breaks, get into the office, coffee output throughout the day, coffee of preference depending on country, time of year/day, weather etc. Interesting stuff, if a little silly. I kinda want one at home, but I'm not sure my Fracino can tell me much other than "off" and "on"... (I'm assured they've been rinsed recently, apparently it's an issue with decoding the data)
  11. Hey, I'm looking around for a hand grinder under £60, I do eventually want to get a Aergrind, Lido or something of that sort but don't have the budget for it right now. Looking for something decent until I do, not expecting incredible results. I usually make coffee with an aeropress or v60, I've tried some of the very low end grinders and they were atrocious at coarser settings. I've been told to consider a Rhino or Porlex? Are there any other decent grinders at this price point?
  12. Hi All, Just looking for advice, I'm wanting to get a filter coffee machine (to compliment my aeropress). Just wondering if anyone has used the Merlitta Look (glass or flask without the hot plate)? Or whether I should spend the extra and on a Moccamaster or a Wilfa Svart Classic any advice greatly appreciated, Thanks!
  13. We are opening a tea room and been quoted £139 per month for a casadio group 2 machine which works out at £5000 for the three year term. Is this about right or are we being had? Thanks
  14. Hi. One month ago find in youtube Poland company that make manual grinders and tampers. And I preorder one . They sell it from 1 June . If somebody interesting check it . Its good quality in my mind .
  15. Los Angeles Times 'A future cup of coffee in California could give you jitters before you even take a sip. A nonprofit group wants coffee manufacturers, distributors and retailers to post ominous warnings about a cancer-causing chemical stewing in every brew and has been presenting evidence in a Los Angeles courtroom to make its case. The long-running lawsuit that resumed Monday claims Starbucks and about 90 other companies, including grocery stores and retail shops, failed to follow a state law requiring warning signs about hazardous chemicals found everywhere from household products to workplaces to the environment. At the center of the dispute is acrylamide, a carcinogen found in cooked foods such as French fries that is also a natural byproduct of the coffee roasting process. The coffee industry has acknowledged the presence of the chemical but asserts it is at harmless levels and is outweighed by benefits from drinking coffee'. Best stock up quick, before coffee is banned.

    Birthday present

    Anyone tried this? Got it as a birthday present and is quite tasty. I was sceptical at first but was roasted in January
  17. My father is a gout sufferer and I was doing some study to adjust my diet, since my last blood test results regarding the uric acid level were a bit too high. It is interesting to go through the materials dealing with the groups of food that are banned/neutral/positive (regarding the amount of purines per weight and impact on the uric acid). In the oldest materials (books) coffee is forbidden, in the newer ones (a list the doctor gave my father) it is considered neutral - not to be consumed during an attack but overall no positive or negative effect. However, on Wikipedia, it is already listed as a recommended part of a prevention diet ("Eating dairy products, vitamin C, coffee, and cherries may help prevent gout attacks, as does losing weight."). The sources are from 2014 and 2016. Could anyone please share their experiences with gout and the effect of coffee on it? Thanks!
  18. On a recent trip I came across three cafes using speciality coffee. They are all located near one of the main squares, Piazza Vittoria. Cosi e - a small cafe on the North side of the square. Offering filter by Ozone and had a bag of Peru Gardelli for espresso by special request. I had a washed Ethiopian V60. Ground on a Baratza Vario. Used a teapot as a pouring kettle. It was ok, nothing special. A bit weak and lacking intensity which I find a common problem with cafe filter. Estratto - south of the square on Corsa Martiri Della Liberta. Small and functional with a brave "no sugar here" sign. A La Marzocco machine and coffee from La Cabra. Filter ground on a Wilfa Svart (basic). I had a Kenyan V60. Really good. Sweet and flavoursome. Probably the best V60 I have had in a cafe. Tostada - on the same street nearer the square. A much more upmarket appearance and an EK43 grinder. Using HMC (His majesty's coffee) from Monza. I had a Costa Rican. Served bizarrely in wine glasses it was lacking intensity. Think it was a La Faema machine for espresso. Prices generally 4.50 to 5 eur.

  21. Paid a visit to here on Monday. Full disclosure I know one the Barista's here from his time in Lancaster. It's a 12 month residency at the Old Bank In Manchester. Directions etc here https://www.swansong.coffee Coffee wise, absolutely Fab. This is labour of love for the guys running it. Roasters changing every two week, with some real variety in there. They had a choice of Huck Roaster or Cloud Picker for filter, with Heart and Graft on espresso. On recommendation went for the washed Ethiopian from Cloud Picker on v60. It was delicious, syrupy sweet citrus. Top three this year. I bought a bag and its been delicious at home as espresso and brewed also. If you see a guy called Andy there, say Martin sent you, and he is more than happy to chat roasters and geek out with people.
