So folks this is the first of the lighter side of life offerings and I am quieter excited that it is coming from a roaster that has a strong forum connection in Callum our very own demon barista! The principle is exactly the same as the darker side of life, four bags of 250 grams will be sent out to each participant which will be consumed, evaluated, and feedback provided here on the thread.


I imagine that many brew methods will come out of the lighter side, so please put down all your findings, my focus will be on espresso but I will dabble in a little brewed to see what it does. There are 8 guest slots available in 500 gram lots each priced at £12 including delivery so get your name down if you fancy giving this great roaster a go. I am sure that Callum will pop up and tell us a bit more about foundry and their ethos.


Expect the beans to be delivered around the 13th October having been rested for three days, so perfect for the brewed lovers to get tucking into.

Love life, love my wife, I’m a great guy!

Looking forward to these beans. Speaking to Lee and Callum last Sunday, these beans are not currently available through Foundry and the feedback they recieve will be considered for the roast for their offering to the public.

Is signing up as simple as writing this post, payment and address to be confirmed by PM? Or have I broken some arcane rules of the LSOL subscription?

When the guest slots have all gone I will PM everyone with bank details for payment.


Remember this list is for this months guest slots only at £12 for 500 grams.. You need to say if you are wanting to go on the LSOL Members list for 3 months at £55 with 1 kilo per month.

No prob - will be sending out(PMs) banking details over the coming week.


For those that have 'played' the game before please await the new bank details. They are different to the DSOL to avoid confusion.
