I’ve tried to ignore this but i can’t anymore.  This forum has a long and deep history of experimenting and telling each other what we did and how we did it. Sometimes we have something to celebrate

Black Cat Chocolate Point helping me with my first recognisable fern latte art. Taken a few weeks but I think I'm starting to get the feel for milk steaming.

That’s an occupational hazard of me dropping in an out. Life is a bit busy here. Notwithstanding water and bridges, I felt it was worth articulating emphatically that this forum is about sharing e

It seems to have disappeared off their website now, but I'm on Rave's Brazil Zona de Varginha No. 68 beans which cost just £4.50 for 250g. The price intrigued me as it's on a par with supermarket coffee, indeed it's cheaper than many you can buy in the supermarket.

And, it turns out, it's much nicer than supermarket coffees. Much smoother with little bitterness and strongly defined flavours - lots of chocolate, caramel and a hint of apple on the back. The freshness of roast clearly makes a huge difference compared to the supermarket offerings, so this is quite the bargain. It's a gluggable brew through the V60 and I'm glad I went for two bags - means I can experiment making some coldbrew (yes, it's already that time of year)

Got a coffee from Redemption Roasters. They're a prison-based coffee roaster and have shops in Kings Cross, Bloomsbury, Liverpool St, Barbican. They train offenders in coffee industry skills with the aim of reducing re-offending in the UK. The coffee is lovely, this one is gently fruity, something I don't usually go for but this is good.

These are really nice. Best as a straight up espresso as adding anything to it dilutes the subtle delicacies.

I haven't had any coffee from The Barn in years. It was the first specialty coffee I ever drank and kickstarted my love of coffee. Are there any issues importing in from them now that Brexit has kicked in?

When I ordered I had forgotten about the issues with delivery from Europe. However, postage was only £5 and it took about a week to arrive.

Our own Colombian Belalcazar on espresso at the moment. Seven days post-roast it’s giving me great orange vibrancy and caramel. Playing with slightly short shots, but a 6-bar pull over 25 secs at 1:2 seems great.

I’m trying the latest LSOL offering from North Star.

2 min steep, then flipped and pushed down. Really juicy!! Sweet berries with a tropical tartness to it (is my best attempt to describe this).

I’m guessing something like Kenya micro lot with a washed process.

Had a lovely V60 of Coffee by Casuals Kenyan offering today. Got it as part of their deal to forum members and not disappointed at all for trying them out. Would attach an image, but not entirely sure how to without having to use a URL (is that possible?)
