Foundry Coffee Roasters

Recommended Posts

Just noticed there isn't a roast date on my bag, anyone else get the same?

 

Mine was roasted Fri 18 Sept and arrived Mon 21st. Mine has the date written on the back of the bag at the top.


Everything my heart could desire (more or less). . .

Oops, that's weird. Must have missed that somehow. If you tell me when you ordered, I can tell you the roast date. We're three times a week these days.

It's a different crop this year . From what I can tell so far from a couple of coffees from roasters it's not entirely same this is no bad thing tho . Seems to be an added creaminess , little less funk , bit easier to extract

 

Agree with this. Still fiddling a bit with it. It is easier to get solubility without sacrificing the nice blue fruit in this bean but we're still tweaking to see if we might be able to sacrifice a tiny bit of that solubility in the pursuit of bigger fruit. Too early to tell on the roast from yesterday whether this has entirely worked. Yet more testing this weekend after the coffee has had a few days rest.

That would be good, I ordered on Thursday at 12:19 :)

Little elf who fills in the boxes must have been too busy enjoying the tasty coffee and that one must have somehow slipped pass him?!

What''s the antique machine hidden away there?

 

It's a one group Brasilia I think. It doesn't work at the moment but it will do soon. The buttons are great and with some new paint and a good going over, it should be a really cool little machine.

Got my rock bottom rocko sitting waiting for me when I got home yesterday :-)

 

So I've knocked out a couple of V60s last night and this morning......

 

Mmmmmmmm Mmmmmm Mmmm!!!!

Oh how I've missed lighter beans!!!

 

These are the best cups I've had, literally, for months while I have languished in DSOL wasteland....

 

I am going to enjoy working through these :-)

 

Expect an update on my syphon virgin thread - cos I am gonna put some of these through!

Well I'm still not getting anything interesting from this bean. The strawberry notes quickly disappeared a few days after roasting. This was the main flavour I could detect. I've tried every brewing method known to man and RM just tastes very bland to me. Weird as this bean is wildly popular. Very frustrating.

So say v60 - what dose in and water out at what temp? We might be able to help extract a tastier drink for you. What kind of bean normally gets your tongue wagging ? Africans ? Americans ? Naturals ?

hmm your frustration is frustrating me! I agree with below comments, perhaps explain your process a little? How are you storing beans? If you're noticing obvious flavour fading after a few days, that seems odd.

Just finishing up my first Foundry order - I get why people love the Rocko Mountain but the Guatemalan is even better!

 

Tried the Guatemalan, just beautiful, salted caramel meets green and blacks chocolate. 16gs with slightly shorter pulls than Normal at around 28 secs (94degrees)

Just opened the last batch of the Rocko. I had forgotten how good this is. Currently also on Redbrick and found same grind setting but updose from 19 to 20 and a longer shot of 38g. Really nice to have two beans on the go with no adjustments🏻

Ok I need to try the Rocko. I've emailed Foundry for the discount code but I'm impatient :). Anyone in a position to PM the current one?

In the meantime, we have decided to release a limited quantity of our current Rocko Mountain with 50% off. The code to enter at checkout is 'rockbottomrocko' - it is applicable to 1kg of Rocko Mountain only and will work for 50 orders. Thanks for your patience all.

Hi Tewdric

From memory I think the code is a combination of code and unlocking your account to accept it. Lee is normally quick on the draw with this so may not be too long a wait.( refers to the regular forum discount rather than the rock bottom rocko above :-))

Hope of help

I'll be interested to try the new Rocko when space in my coffee cupboard allows. I recently tried (via cupping) the same new crop roasted by a local roaster here - it was truly wonderful and there was a real hit of pineapple as it cooled. I don't see that mentioned in the tasting notes so I guess it could be a case of different roast = different flavours.
