  1. Is anyone trying square miles' current redbrick espresso in an aeropress or similar? I bought some for my girlfriend to use with her aeropress as she prefers a slightly darker roast, with more nutty flavours, than most good roasters do for filter. She's previously been a massive fan of the redbrick in her aeropress too. Anyway, right now we're really struggling to get anything that tastes close to balanced with these. First it came out sour, then just a little tighter on the grind seems to reduce the sourness somewhat (though not completely) but somehow completely flatten out the flavour profi

    Square Mile

    Made my first ever purchase from Square Mile this week and the beans arrived today. I must say I am super impressed with the packaging. Looking forward to trying this soon and I may also go back for the Sweetshop blend at some point.
  4. Over the last few months I have been getting my beans from Rave, Has Bean, Square Mile and a local roaster. I fancy a change but the choice is huge! Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm drinking brewed coffee and prefer light(ish) roasts.
  5. Oops..might have accidentally gone and entered this! Will have to get practicing! Anyone else thought about entering?

    Square Mile

    Got an email today saying the new webshop is up and running: http://shop.squaremilecoffee.com/ Prices seem a bit cheaper than buying from shops - I love Red Brick/Sweetshop but always put off by the price a bit. Suppose taking a third party retailer out the questions means they can market them cheaper.
  8. Hi guy's, This is something I didn't want to ever have to write as I love Square Mile but I am really rather annoyed at the manner in which an issue was dealt with(or not dealt with) the other day. Last weekend I decided to celebrate the end of my months coffee abstinence by putting in an order for 2 bags of Jirmiwachu Espresso and a bag of Red Brick(Sweetshop was off the site at the time), not knowing when they would be roasting again I waited until the Thursday when I received an email saying they couldn't accept the payment. I pay for my coffee from a separate bank account that I
  9. Anyone got the latest sweetshop blend- 50% kochere natural, 50% El Vendaval. Playing about this afternoon. Just pulled a shot in the right ball park but still overly sour. Takes a fine grind. 18 in and 27 out in 27s. Few spritzers from the bottomless pf so maybe under extracted. I've never felt I've really got to grips with any of these blends. Gonna try upping the temp on the PID by a few degrees to see if that helps.
  10. Hi all, This is my first time on coffee forums and am in need of some help with my home setup. Currently I have: - Everpure Claris small water filter - Porlex hand grinder - kettle - v60, aeropress, chemex, syphon, french press. My problem is in the final cup of all of my brews. I sometimes get nice flavours, light and heavy body depending on coffee, but my problem is the clarity isnt there. There always seems to be a cloudiness in taste, and I have tried the coffee's I use at home in coffee shops in London and have tasted what they can be, and am never able to achieve

    New Red Brick

    Has anyone tried the new Red Brick from Square Mile yet? Red Brick has been my favourite coffee for some time (back to when it was Winter/summer espresso), however I didn't enjoy the blend they had during this winter so I moved to other beans. I am currently finishing some other coffee and I am keen to try the new blend.
  12. Hi all, Some online research has shown that cold brewing coffee produces much lower acidity coffee, which is easier to digest. Having not been able to drink a cup now for 2 months, this is my last ditch attempt before I sell all my equipment and go cold turkey for life. Seriously. I've seen the Hario Cold Brew and the Hourglass Cold Brew Coffee Maker as shown on Seattle Coffee Gear, and also the Toddy Cold Brew. None of these seem to be available in the UK. Has anyone had any experience with any of these methods? And can anyone tell me if they are available in the UK?
  13. Hi Setup: Gaggia Classic - silvia & OPV mod Porlex Grinder I've been making coffee for the last couple of months...with varying success. I predominately drink milk based drinks as the espresso I produce tastes extremely bitter/sour (probably due to the fact I'm using Lavazza espresso beans), but I also think another contributing factor is the temperature issue of the Classic (I've ordered a digital thermometer to test the brewing temp). Back to the original question. I've been looking at Hasbean - Jailbreak Espresso Blend Mk3 / El Salvador Finca La Fany Bourbon /
  14. I'm relatively new to coffee on the sort of serious level these forums aspire to, but I am learning... Last week I bought some Square Mile Autumn Espresso beans (from a coffee stall in Columbia Road market). My first thoughts were, this is not quite how I imagine espresso to be... then, following on, there was a sort of revelation. The coffee really does have the caramel and grapefruit flavours proclaimed on the packet, and there's a fantastic after taste. I usually drink my espresso without sugar, but this one I find works better with a bit of sweetening. Interesting stuff. Any othe
  15. This is possibly one of the best coffees I've drunk to date. Lovely caramel, vanilla taste to it. Pulls a good thick gloupy shot with nice long lasting crema. Great for milk based drinks.
  16. Ordered myself some red brick after trying at a nearby cafe but finding it a tad more difficult to get anything good yet with very thin crema. To be fair I need to adjust the grind a bit more as I'm getting 2oz in around 35-40 secs but curious if the beans are just too fresh. Should I give them a week to age before trying again or just adjust grind and retry again
  17. Just received my first batch of RM coffees and have spent 10 shots dialling in the grind to get the correct pour, but what is being produced is sour and nasty. Have experimented with temperatures 92-98, but it still tastes like shit. Thoughts anyone?
  18. While I look forward to some nice beans from Glenn I have just started another bag of Square Mile's Spring Espresso. The tiger stripes when it starts to pour are amazing. I've just popped onto their website and it looks like there is none left

  21. Tomorrow night I am heading to the Square Mile - Taste of Sweden event and I am excited. James and Anette usually put on a great event (if the past few are anything to go by) and this time Chris Weaver will be joining Nadine and I to sample some of the best coffee Sweden has roasted. The details can be found here and a review will go up on Thursday night Keep an eye on the Square Mile Blog for the official report
  22. Over the past 3 weeks we have been drinking El Portillo, the Costa Rican Cup of Excellence #19th placed coffee, expertly roasted by the team at Square Mile Coffee Roasters. The beans settled quickly once they arrived, a bit gassy at first and volatile to extract, but after 3-4 days they settled to pull consistently for the past 2 weeks, with no sign of the initial challenges. This is a crisp, clean coffee with a hint of sweetness. The tasting notes aptly sum up this coffee. Don't expect this coffee to last long, and buy it whilst you can. My wife requests this coffee in th
  23. Hi all, As I read about coffee I constantly hear about Lavazza and Illy as being good examples of coffees. I have tried both of these over the last few years from my local supermarket etc. Are these the same packets of coffee that people refer to when prasing these coffees? or do people find a way of sourcing freshly roasted Lavazza and Illy? Are the supermarket packets of Lavazza and Illy worth the money, or am I better off finding an alternative, similar blend to try? Many Thanks, Sammy
  24. Hello, I have been following coffee forums for most of this year but this is my first introduction. Planning Kaffeine has been taking up loads of my time, as well as finishing at my old job at Lord's Cricket ground at the end of July 3 weeks before we opened. Now my life is totally immersed in coffee and I am loving it. I am originally from Melbourne, have worked in Hospitality for over 20 years and just love providing great food, service and products to people. Kaffeine is my first place with my business partner who is from New Zealand and we look forward to providing our patch of l
