Has Bean Golden Ticket SSSS

Moreish indeed. Noticeably low in caffeine too, necked an entire Chemex 500g brew without problems, normally about half is my limit for a single beverage

Seems to be very forgiving too. Bolivian was great but a bit picky. First shot of this ran very slow and expected it to be over-extracted but still very sweet and balanced.

I second that... Opened yesterday - I recon it'll be finished by tomorrow :( Yummy moorish (hence it will be finished tomorrow). Tasting notes are bang on!

 

I must remember to try some brewed before I scoff the lot as espresso/flat white


Rocket Giotto Evo, Mythos, Torr x 2, Rapha Chris King Tamper (coz they are cool), VST's, Hausgrind, Airgrind, Hario Slim, Chemex, Aeropress, Oomph, Puck Puck, Bialetti, Black Acaia scales, Acia Lunas,fresh beans

Blah Blah Blah - it makes coffee

Mine arrived yesterday. Deliciously sweet and smooth with that raisin goodness. Yum! V60 - 16g into 250ml in 3:40.

All gone... knockout as brewed and espresso - early contender for best coffee of 2015!

 

Haha seconded! I've still got some, but only because the Kaganda has also been so good.

The aftertaste on this El Sal is totally amazing! Like eating a Raisin cake of some description. One of the best aftertastes on any brewed coffee I've had for awhile!

Thanks for sharing your secret stash Steve!

It's not even March yet. Thats early!

 

Guessing it has nothing to do with the next instalment due, as it is openly for sale unlike the SSSSS stuff that is one offs

Got the accompanying email for the subscription which says: Colombia Finca Buena Vista Washed Caturra Reserve 14th of August 2014

The coffee on the website just says a washed caturra, not the reserva. Seems like this day of picking is particularly special.

 

Can't wait for mine to arrive!!! Going to finish reading the epicly long email :)

Oh yeah.

My email gets lost in the promotional folder as gmail seems to insist on splitting incoming email. Found it, and you are right it is a special lot rather than the standard website fare.

 

 

(edit... Mine just dropped through the letter box!)

Just brewed a v60..........tastes......phenomenal! Easily one of the best coffees I've ever tasted!

Have to say the smell after grinding was pure wild blackberries, and I get that in the cup too! Am I the only one?

Love this subscription! Steve is a legend for sharing is secret stash!

I didn't spot anything in the IMM e-mail apart from the usual description of the coffee. I'm as per usual behind so will watch the IMM video

I knew it was open again but haven't watched the imm video - assumed it must have been from the email but maybe not
