  1. Hi everyone, I've got a Sage Oracle and an absolute love for Ethiopia Chelelektu beans which I haven't been able to source for over a year Aaron
  2. Hi, I have ordered to much coffee and so have 500g of coffee roasted by Method Coffee Roasters. The coffee is Ethiopian, Guji Highland with notes of blueberry jam and cream. it was roasted on 09.01.19 £12 plus postage uk only
  3. Wow, interesting christmas, I have discovered 2 new beans with flavours I never thought humanly possible, First the bad from Rave "ETHIOPIAN YIRGACHEFFE - NATURAL DUMERSO" wow, I have never disliked a coffee so much before, I really did not enjoy this, even the smell of the beans put me off, it says Jammy raspberries with sticky orange sweetness. Firstly to me I smell olives, that same smell that is reminiscent of having a dodgy stomach and making an espresso with it just intensifies this smell in to a taste .... nothing I did could stop me thinking of samonella food poisoning .. hated it ! Part of me wonders if it was a dodgy batch or whether I just dont like this bean/roast has anyone else tried it ? Secondly the good Well, to be honest, one of the best coffees I have had, I normally favour chocolate, nuts and caramel flavours so when I ordered Hasbeans Ethiopian Shakiso described as fresh lemon and hot liquid lemon, juicy lemon zest with a little black tea, I was dubious. but my god, this coffee as an espresso is just awesome, it literally explodes in flavour off the tongue, the second you sip it you mouth just fills with saliva, its like a tart zingy lemon meringue pie dipped in your drink .... my god !!!!! The ugly well, that was the state of my shower screen and gasket ... just changed it for a IMS one and a new gasket ... wish I had done that earlier, dont know if it was the build up of gunk now removed or the IMS even flow but my very last shot of the Shakiso was the sweetest shot I have ever made
  4. I know several roasters are offering this now but I have to say that @JollyBeanRoastery have nailed the roast profile once again. It's beautifully balanced as a pourover with plenty of berry sweetness.
  5. As above - bought these to try - and concluded that although these are the closest I've got - Nespresso (in all it's forms) just isn't my bag. The full pack is 40 capsules and £26 posted. This is 31 capsules. Most of the nine are taken from the least expensive of the three coffees, so I'm left with: 9 (out of 10) of the Carmen Est. Geisha Panama. 15 (out of 20) of the Cavla Colombian. 7 (out of 10) of the Nano Challa Ethiopian. £26 divided by 40 capsules is 65p 31 x 65p is £20.15 So - how about £18 including postage?
  6. I got 250g of the Ethiopia Kebel Aricha as my HasBean IMM this month, and I'm worried this one might be a bit too "James Brown" for me to handle... I'm still working my way through the Jolly Bean Rocko Mountain, which is probably funky enough for me. They're not available on the HasBean site anymore, but had some glowing reviews from the funk lovers: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:viyOTsEzpqYJ:www.hasbean.co.uk/products/ethiopia-yirgacheffe-kebel-aricha-natural+&cd=2&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=uk. Here is Steve's description: "In the cup this coffee is as funky as funky can be. One ticket for a ride on board the funky bus, please! It's loaded with blueberries and has an amazing sparkling acidity. It's a fantastically exciting and different coffee." Does anyone fancy swapping a 250g (preferably unopened, as these are) bag of beans for this one? They were roasted on the 19th Feb so they should be good for a while yet.
  7. VST refractometer reading of an espresso prepared this morning at the Schectermatic Cafe. Coffee was an Ethiopian Yirga Cheffee Aricha from Mountain Air Roasting in North Carolina USA. It was delicious and really sweet, like it had been doused with clove-infused maple syrup. :-0
  8. Roaster = Jame Gourmet Beans = Ethiopian Sasaba Roast date = 6/08/2015 (frozen when delivered 2 days later the defrosted for 12 hours on 24/089/2015) Just had my first cup with these beans after freezing them and I'm impressed. Had coffee using Aeropress + Feldgrind and it tastes pretty awesome, it's actually really similar to the Foundry Rocko Mountain, although I reckon I can refine my brew a bit more to get maximum sweetness and flavour (for first brew no scales were around so I just did best guess based on previous brews). Flavours are really floral, sweet and there's some rosehip types flavours too and are a good example. Grinding takes a bit of effort as beans are pretty lightly roasted and dense but it's worth it. Roast quality was good - nice and even Just looked at the website again and it looks like these beans are now gone! Hopefully this review will be useful if they come back.
  9. Turning 50 next weekend, and will need a lump of coffee, as one of my friends is an absolute fiend, and he will drink me out of home and house. He loves Ethiopian espresso , washed and natural , so looking for some recommendations. No Rocko mountain please. Off you go.
  10. Just the coffee for a snowy winters day - Chocolatey notes, intense flavour but not as floral as the description on the site. I found this coffee best enjoyed as a French Press, bringing out a little bright acidity at first but settling to leave a decent finish. This coffee has the oomph to cut through milk in a latte or cappuccino CoffeeBeanShop's description can be found here
