  1. Hi all, So my last bag of beans where RAVEs Fudge Blend and while it was a lovely coffee like others I couldn't quite get the fudge notes so this time I'm thinking of trying Foundry Coffee Roasters RIO MAGDALENA - COLOMBIA as it sounds amazing. I had a small pouch of coffee beans a while back from a shop which had buttery notes and while I never thought that sounded great I absolutely loved that taste! So that along with chocolate, raisins and caramel just sounds bloody amazing! I was wondering though, has anyone got any ratios they want to throw in from past experience if I order these so I could try them out? I usually start on a 1:1 over 32 seconds or so and go from there. I've got a Gaggia Classic with Mr Shades PID and a Mazzer Super Jolly

  3. Hello all, I've received a number of enquiries about our forum deal that suggests to me that there is a need to clarify what we are offering. All forum members can receive a discount of 15% on our beans. The process is that members need to PM me with the email address that they will use when placing an order on our site. I will then authorise that email address to be able to make use of a coupon code which can be used when checking out. The coupon code is ukcf15%. The code can be used as many times as you like and it will remain in place for the foreseeable future. I hope that this post helps clarify our offering. Many thanks to all of your for your continuing support and encouragement, the feedback we receive on an almost daily basis from here is a great way of letting us know that we are on track! Cheers, Lee.
  4. Right oh, It's January and today in the Hopper of my Mahlkonic Vario Home is Foundry Coffee Roasters - Moata. Like many folks, I picked this up as part of their Black Friday Deal, and thus spent a kilo of coffee getting to know this very good coffee. Espresso. I pull with an 18g VST on a gaggia TS. I start at 1:2 with time 25-45 seconds and from there, follow taste. No VST, no formal training, just following whats good to me. This Bean shines in the 10-21 days post roast window. Taste notes are a good guideline. This is a generally sweet, and restrainedly fruity Espresso. It is not notably acidic. Its balanced, and can be either delicate, or super smooth as your preference. The two best type of shots I had were 18 -> 42 in ~35 seconds. This was a wonderfully sweet, apricot, peach tasting shot with a notably smooth mouthfeel that made the longer sweet shot shine. Sweet, balanced and never overpowering. Great. Closer to the roast date this bean shone as a shorter shot, 18g -> 32g in 30-32 seconds. This shorter shot was a little less sweet, more noticeably fruity, the apricot note was very apparent here. This type of shot was silky silky smooth (as one might expect from a central american Bourbon for example) The bean seems to lose it's smooth mouthfeel as we go into and beyond a month past roast, but in the 10-21 day post roast, it is magic for espresso. Brewed - V60, 15g -> 250g in about 4 minutes give or take technical flaws. The brewed side of this bean is, quite good. Much less exciting than the espresso. Flavours are balanced, cup is sweet and clean. In any other case i'd be very happy, but after the amazing espressos, i am a little underwhelmed. Would I buy this bean again - Yes Would I buy from this Roaster Again - Yes

Will sort out a two group Lever for the bar and will also get a really tasty selection of grinders together for folk to have a play with, contrast and compare. These will include both KafaTek grinders an r120 an Ek43 and hopefully a couple of other truly bling grinders. Glenn has agreed to provide some prizes and I will put together a raffle on the day.

  7. I'm going to be doing a Macmillan coffee morning this Saturday in my local village hall - Foundry Coffee Roasters have kindly supplied me some of their lovely Kenyan and I'll be either running this with the EK or E8 and a Fracino Classic 2 group. I'll be trying to make the coffee as well as I can and would love it, if any of you are available to come along and support this great charity. We'll also have some tasty home made cakes - the ones I've heard of so far are: Apple Crumble Cake, Strawberry and Cream Shortbread and Nutella Cheesecake I'm considering having the option of filter via the Brazen Behmohr but that's still an idea for the moment. This is being held at the Pavilion, in Bramley, Hampshire between 10am and 1pm. It's close to the Bramley Pub and Clift Meadow - in case you're interested in coming along.
  8. I had a look and didn't see a review thread for these guys, although they do seem to be well regarded here. I bought a Compak E8 from them, Lee was happy to chat on the phone about the grinder answering any questions I had. Seems like a very knowledgable guy. Shipping was fast, dispatched the same day for next day delivery with a 1hr timeslot notification. They even threw in a big bag of coffee for me to try I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them based on my experience so far.
  9. I am very pleased to say that Foundry have agreed to provide the January offering for the Lighter Side of Life collective. We are looking at a likely delivery date in the 3rd week of Jan, which gives Lee time to recover from Christmas and profile a few roasts before final selection. The last LSOL offering from Foundry was a huge success and still one of the most popular beans on this forum (and on Jeebsy's coffee stand!). In anticipation of quite a high demand Foundry have said that they should be able to supply as many guest slots as are required. Let's start the number at 20 and see where we go - just a reminder - a guest slot is 500g (2x 250g bags) and is likely to be £12 delivered. Please sign up below. Cheers and have a great Christmas. Nick

  11. Brian as in Brian's Coffee Spot has just posted a review of his visit to Foundry with honourable mentions to Lee and Callum. Enough to make everyone move to Sheffield (especially when you open your coffee shop). http://www.brian-coffee-spot.com/2015/07/18/foundry-coffee-roasters/

  13. This tiny micro roaster in Sheffield is knocking out some amazing coffee. Tried their Gashonga and was blown away by it; couldn't pull a shot over 15 seconds with it but that's another story... Would highly recommend. They do nice large 350g bags too and £2 postage which makes them very well priced. I am very lucky to have them on my doorstep! I realise this is a small roaster but has anyone else tried the Rwandan Gashonga? http://www.foundrycoffeeroasters.com/shop/fresh-coffee-beans/gashonga-lake-kivu-rwanda-350g/
