I'm still very new to this "making good espresso" malarkey and so far I've been pretty much assuming that dark beans are the ones for me. This is based on a number of things: 1) From trying very stylish espresso around London I have enjoyed some lighter, fruitier roasts but more so in flat whites than as espressos 2) From my research (and some excellent advice from Obnic) it seems that on my starter level equipment with my starter level of skill, dark roasts are more likely to give consistent results 3) I've generally enjoyed the coffee I've made so far (while it hasn't knocked my socks off - I'm sure for many reasons other than beans). Anyway, as a scientist, I love a good evidence based conclusion so I want to order a couple of bags of beans from a lighter roaster (probably HasBean) than Rave or CC. I would like something that has good detailed fruits, especially berries, but does not overpower you with the sourness. I've also wondered about natural processed (most of the beans I've liked the look of from HasBean have been...) because on the darker natural processed CC beans I've tried this has tended to give a weird "umami" aftertaste that I'm not sure I like in my coffee. Thanks for your help.
Ive noticed recently that with lighter more acidic coffees, specifically prepared as espresso, tend to cause me some major digestion issues. Belching and bloating occurs immediately. Another symptom is profuse armpit sweating! Anyone else on here have problems ?
