LSOL November - Triple Co Roast [Bristol]

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried any of Jo’s other coffees? Thought I might pick up a bag, but I’m unsure which to go for!

 

Yes. Got some Guatamala Santa Clara PM and really please with this too. Lovely in a flat white. Also got some Pacamara but haven’t tried that one yet.

How have you been having it?

 

I had to go super fine for espresso today, 15 on niche (I'm usually between 17 and 23) and the shots have been a little bit messy for some reason. Saying that even the first shot that came through in about 15 seconds was still very drinkable!

 

Had a flat white this evening, really good. :)

Only tried espresso so far. I’m at 13 on the Niche which is in a similar ballpark as the LOSL or thereabouts.

 

18g > 36g in 28 secs. That was only the second espresso with the Pacamara so I may be able to improve it but it was lovely as it was!!

Ah cool, I ended up a little tighter than lsol but as I say it was a bit messy on the pour so maybe need to dial in a bit better... still lovely though!

Loving reading all of the comments but it is finally time! The big reveal... the coffee this month was our.....

 

Kenya Tano Ndogo

 

We found this amazing Kenyan coffee to be a cocktail of floral and fruity flavours. Starting out with an immediate sugary sweetness, you are hit with a subtle rose note. This is quickly followed by mandarin, grapefruit and honey, giving you a nectar like sensation. A very unique coffee. This coffee is fully washed, SL28 & SL34 varietals and as Mark mentioned grown at 1850m.

Tano Ndogo is a newly formed farmers group from Gitwe, in Kiambu County. The group is composed of 3 brothers from the Muuru family, plus 2 neighbours from the same village. The name Tano Ndogo means “small five” in Swahili, to represent the 5 founding members. The Muuru inherited their farms in 2001 when their father passed away and the blocks were split amongst his sons. Joseph, Francis and James have 3.3 acres each. While the neighbours, Gichega Farm and Kariru estate, are of similar sizes, but placed in the north of the same town.

 

Joseph, Francis and James are also the brothers of James Kariuki - the owner of Fram Farm - who was crowned winner of the East Africa Taste of Harvest competition in 2017. Not to be outdone, Tano Ndogo won 5th Place in the same competition this year.

 

Glad to have been a part of this all, looking forward to doing it again! Let me know if you have any questions, cheers!

 

What about the Samburu Maidens?

 

I think I should be announced winner for my "guess".....


There is a fine line between "Hobby" and "Manic Obsession"

Have been enjoying these solely through the moccamaster and found a sweetspot at 53g / L where am getting a very pleasant sweetness with a candied sort of citrus back taste, reminded me very much of an own roasted Tanzanian tweega ( perhaps thats why we like it :) )

 

Is mildly amusing as the additional to coffee flavours don't hit you straight away so you get a puzzled look on guests faces as they pick up the above.

 

Highly unlikely to get this into the LII as not going to be enough left to dial in.

 

For those that need it: R120 grinder set about 10pm on dial, 53g / L of water, filtered water, mostly 3/4 L brews with a quick stir to pull grinds off walls / infuse and a stir halfway through, Filtropia white filters (rinsed) on a Moccamaster KBGT-741.

 

Enjoyed this one, thanks all for arranging

I wasn’t involved in this LSOL but have recently started buying from Jo as live nearby.

 

First a Kenya, second batch an Ethiopian. Both were stand-out superb coffees as straight espresso.

 

Really impressed and delighted to have found him!
