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.
Coffee roaster (and hopefully soon to be a cafe too) based in Cheltenham. They seem to follow the Scandinavian trend of roasting quite light, I have a bag of their Rocko Mountain beans at the moment and they are amazing, like a cup full of blueberries! I popped in the other day and had a free double espresso of their Nicaraguan coffee, which was fantastic. They seem to be doing free espressos every Friday between 10am and 12am, if you're planning a visit you might want to check their twitter or their website. James, who runs the pod, is a very friendly guy and happy to chat about the coffees they have available.
Hi there, I have a Eureka Mignon MK1 which until now hasn't skipped a beat, but I recently picked up some Rocko Mountain Reserve from Foundry Roasters and the grinder keeps on jamming; the motor hums but i doesn't grind. If I remove the hopper, clear out the remaining beans and give it a shake then it clears, so I assume it's a bean getting stuck in the grinder? Does this sound likely or is the grinder on the way out? Do some beans jam up grinders more than others? Cheers, Mike
