Under Milkwood beans

Recommended Posts

So I have ~600-750g of 1kg of Under Milkwood. I don't think my equipment, probably my grinder, is good enough to get a decent cup of this. I have tried all kinds of variations of grind fineness to shot timing to amount of beans used (well as much as you can single-shot a Mignon mk2 anyway) and I never managed to make a nice cup of it. I had a 250g bag previously and nailed it first time but I think it was mixing with the blood orange tasting foundry coffee I had before it.

So free to a good home. You should probably take this if you have a 70mm burr grinder or above because it seems to me like you need a high spec grinder to get the flavor out of it.

 

They have been sealed in their bag for over 2 months I don't know if this affects anything for you, but, free to a good home provided its not going to cost me over single figures to post it.

Your grinder is more than capable. For example I have made perfectly decent espresso with a Knock hand grinder before out of, I suspect, lighter beans than these.

I see you mention grind fineness and shot times. Shot times isnt the best way to judge when to kill a shot

Are you weighing out your shot to a brew ratio.


I write a blog, it's nothing to do with coffee ...

I weigh out the amount of beans I use. I don't weigh the end product (because I keep buying scales that are inconsistent and not waterproof). TBH being so tall (6'8) is annoying as I have to bend down AND bend my knees to mess around weighing the end product, and I don't have anywhere higher to put the machine. I know, excuses.

6.8 Holy shit that's big! haha.

 

Try to invest in some decent scales. Triton or Tough Weigh. If you want you can water proof with "Corrosion X Amanzon
