Well, first time ever buying fresh roasted beans from a small roaster rather than my Lavazza and I must say wow. I know it may be boring and a poor use of adjectives but honestly that's all I kept saying for the first 5 minutes as I drank my first flat white with the beans. After getting my new machine I was determined to try some new beans and after a wee look around I found these via the coffee roasters website. For anyone interested they are from Guatica with a 1700-1900 meters above sea level and are washed. They were described as full bodied and rich, hazelnut, berries and caramel. I certainly got the nutty caramel from them. Took about 4 go's to get a decent shot. Still not quite perfect. Really need to get the tamping down. Anyways I really enjoyed the coffee and found no bitter aftertaste that I normally associated with home made coffee. I think James Hoffman said something about being so used to poor coffee that you begin to believe that is what it should taste like. This has been a great start for my new coffee journey. I don't drink, I don't smoke, coffee has become my drug of choice and man am I hooked.
