VB Kaffee beans

Recommended Posts

So another batch of Hasi beans have hit UK shores.

 

This is more of a note for myself.

 

Niche grinder setting 15. 16g > 34g in 28seconds. Too fast for my usual so I will adjust for the next shot.

 

interesting, might need to do a homing/calibration run on mine, as I said it's set to 22 for 17/35 in 34s on the Minima...

 

looking forward to your findings!

I bet you’re loving seeing them out and about I’m the same with the skateboard stuff. The best bit is definitely seeing others enjoy them

Ha! Sure thing, it's what keeps us running right?

Their silence is enough praise... quite a common scene between big corporation and employee. And then you discover something that makes others happy. On a small scale. And they let you know how they like what you do. Kind of addictive to be honest. I see it as an escape from mostly abstract computer work, because there's so much beauty in communicating with people about things you love and have in common. There's hardly anything more rewarding than positive vibes and acclaim

Just run some Sigri through the syphon. Am really useless at describing tasting notes (especially when it's still too hot!) But it's going down really tasty & smooth.

Personalised message was such a nice touch! First go on them, lovely rich and luscious chocolatey flavours at this setting. Thanks Hasi!

I christened the new L-R with your beans earlier this afternoon - absolutely gorgeous, thank you! Had it as an espresso, added hot water to fill the (espresso) cup. Sweet, luscious, and just lovely!

 

15g/42s/33g

So far I've made another syphon today as still have other beans in my 'spro grinder. Dropped the dose a bit from my standard 15g/25cl water which has improved it even more!

Can't argue it's value for money though. I can only assume your Sigri is really easy to extract so less is more. Will know better once I get to 'spro it in a day or so.

PNG coffee has a lot to offer, perfect climate and lazy people

 

actually, I'm being serious: they stress about work even less than Caribbean folk. No offence meant because in coffee terms it also means they allow more time and less manipulation.

 

Plantation Sigri is a very well run farm, worked by knowledgeable people who really strive to bring out the best of their trees. The good thing with properly harvested and processed greens is that you as a roaster can build on the initial quality way better. Ok that was rather obvious now... anyhow, I've played with these for at least 10kg until I dared to present my result to anyone.

 

PNG is still a bit of a sleeper. I don't quite know whether I'd like to have it stay that way or not

Wow

Just pulled first couple of (slow) shots; 10sec pi 48 secs total, 15grms into 33grms.

Fantastic coffee, nice thick mouth feel really great wake up, first coffee of the day.

it's the medium roast, yours would be the lighter variant

still especially anxious about your comment though...

I’ve really been enjoying the Sigri, I’ve pulled some of my most consistent shots with it, I always use a naked PF and was surprised that from the first shot I wasn’t getting spritz everywhere like I normally do. 16 in, 32-35 out, it’s been a pleasure to make and drink.
