  1. So much fun ... AHhh the wind in my hair .. WEeeee Weeeeee .. Need to watch the sun on my head .. Did fall on my *rse a few times .. And it all started with these few bits .. Jon.
  2. 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.

    As I'm fairly new to "proper" coffee, I'm going through ordering 1-1.5KG of beans at a time so that I get a chance to play with them. In tasting notes there are references to "funk / funky" tastes, but what actually is a "funky" taste? What do you expect from a funky coffee? I got some Rocko Mountain Reserve from Foundry and am finding a sour (but maybe acidic?) flavour to it. I'm going to try dosing down and maybe pulling longer shots, perhaps increase the temperature, but the tasting notes from Foundry mention "natural funk" now I'm wondering - Is this sourness / acidity the funk taste - ie is it meant to be the way it tastes? Maybe I just prefer more standard chocolate / toffee / nutty type coffees? It's almost certain that I'm not getting the best from the bean due to inexperience /poor technique as well.
  4. Hi I'm looking to get some inexpensive unusual beans - I had those strawberry vibe ones from rave - had some funky ones from has bean before. Despite my fondness to avoid heavy dark roasts I moved towards something medium-dark from rave today - but does anyone have any unusual ideas - or anything that stood out as odd / unusual / special. Any recommendations welcome! Thanks!
  5. Roasted 31st January This won't get used in time as such I would like to move it on should anyone want it. £6 delivered 5 of which will go to the forum. Thanks John
