This has the pleasing apple like acidity and sweetness of a pink lady..... 

For espresso fans it's one that you like if your a acid clown for sure. 

In milk not your normal flat white, still get that acidity biting through. 

Yet to try as filter but I think it will shine here.

This! 

15.5/41s/41g 

It is lush, rich and tasty and as it cooled it became sweeter with a flowery-fruity-ness, I’m not sure what but it good!

Thanks again @Hasi you have cracked it with this one!

I want some @Hasi beans, how do I get some? Does anyone do a group buy of time kind, else postage is a lot from the beautiful Austria.

Group buy has been done before with someone redistributing everyone's orders to the post office.

Some more brews of this. 

Firstly flash cold filter in the chemex. Fab summer drink. Like apple juice 

Split shot this morning, little finer on the grind, little longer on the pre infusion.

Delicious espresso, softer this time on the apple aciidity, in milk some toffee apple vibes, more like after you got through the outer bit of toffee so more towards the apple than the toffee.

Foundry Rocko. Say no more 🙂

Oh go on then, 15.5g/46s/36g and the result? A cup of fruity, juicy goodness. Maybe not as sweet as the last batch and it’s all the better for it! Yum!

Anyone here ever had the Villa Maria Nuna Honey from Crankhouse? Just ordered a kilo of the stuff as I liked the sound of the tasting notes. Would be interested to find other's opinions though!

14th roast of Costa Rica washed geisha La Candellila that I got in October last year. Should get 20 roasts on the Ikawa from 1kg.

Brewed via drip using the Brewista Steeping brewer (1 central hole) Kalita 185 filter 13.5g/225. Brew time 3.35 with 40 sec bloom with the valve closed.

I find that both the Brewista and Bonavita steeping brewers are very good for drip provided the pours are done with minimal agitation. Otherwise you may clog the filter.

Light tea like body with exquisite lemon and tangerine sugary acidity.

A very light roast - pretty crunchy on grinding. A little more heat pre 1st crack compared to some of my other roasts of this bean so that in terms of moisture loss it is higher than those but overall a lighter roast.

I'm being adventurous, after many years of Rave Signature Blend it's time to explore beans.

My first delivery from Dog and Hat arrived today so time to make Espresso.

The beans were noticeably lighter looking to what I am used to.

I used my normal 16g of beans ground at No.18 in the Niche.

The grind looked slightly finer than I'm used to and tamped down to a smaller puck.

The shot of Espresso flowed as normal and I got 40g of Espresso with a decent Crema.

The taste was different, it had more zing, I think that's the apple that's described. Overall it was a fresher brighter tasting coffee. I really enjoyed it and will probably make another.

Juicy Kenya Nyala from Cloud Picker, first as drip in a little Clever (14.5g, 60g bloom 90s, up to 240g total in next 30s), then a French press (13.8g:250g) made in the morning and drank mid afternoon as a chilled coffee, like a refreshing cup of green wine gums :-)

Cat and cloud chelba natural v60.

Via dog and hat.

 

I've had this before. I like these types of naturals. Are they just too out of fashion now?? 

 

Though, this batch tastes "drier" than I remember.

Gulping by the metaphorical pint cos toddler had me up at 4.

An agreeable coffee lol.

How are you all keeping ? Any new forum news??

Gichathaini, Kenya  from Friedhats. Rather funny looking packaging which resembles a vitamin bottle but the coffee tastes great - pretty typical Kenyan flavours and nice rounded sweetness and juicyness. Enjoying this especially when it's cold.

15g ground at EK43 S #13.5 and then 40g bloom and then 40g every 20 sec on the Kalita Wave 155 up to 240g.

Yes the sound it makes when you tip beans out makes me laugh every time...makes me feel as if I'm House reaching for the meds.

Reusable though which is nice albeit quite a large tub (would definitely hold more than the 250g they ship in it).

that looks like a really tasty coffee.  Sadly i have a few bags to drink my way through before I can order any more otherwise I would certainly be buying some.  I've even done the put in the shopping basket and hover the clicker for a minute, but can't convince myself I need more beans yet.
