This stuff is hilariously good, I was looking for something with a little more roast development whilst still being light and knew James Gourmet would fit the bill - my girlfriend pretty much poo poos anything that isn’t a natural coffee and this is what I saw on the shop - an Indian coffee 👀👀.


being a James gourmet espresso it’s really easy to dial in, cos once you push it too far you get a bit of roastiness, so I’ve just sat it at 1:3 and slowly come down from 34s to 23s as it gets older - did I say it’s sweet, coz it’s really sweet - I wouldn’t say strawberry like on the packet -  just sweet.


On a bag of this myself today .

Description above is pretty bang on. A sweet espresso in deed. Add a little milk and I get the  a fudgey type note popping into my head. 

Pulling it , long and slow pre infusion on the Bianca. 18g into 38g.

Nicaragua Finca Limoncillo Natural Pacamara roasted by Has Bean. I love a good Pacamara and this one I've had before from another roaster. The large beans looked rather unevenly colored. Not sure if it's because of roast or because of natural processing you get this unevenness.

Brewed this using my favorite Kalita 155 recipe and tasting notes were quite spot on. 

14.5g ground at #12 on the EK 43 S

using Kalita 155
40g bloom and swirl
at :30 add up to 120g and swirl
at 1:00 add up to 180g and swirl
brew should finish around 2:00 +/-15 sec and then dilute it to 220g

This method doesn't give particularly high EY but really clear tasting notes and it's easy to be consistent. This one ended up at 1.3% TDS 18% EY and tasted like sweet sour cherry jam with a lot of funk, pretty much spot on I think. Definitely not for everyone though!
