  1. 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
