Glad you've found a use for that erroneous portafilter, but why doesn't the hippo have Gene Simmons-esque facepaint?

Okay, so I’ve tried 2 v60s of this so far. First impression is that this is definitely a special coffee. My brews smelled strongly of parmaviolets and jasmine and seemed to have a fairly delicate body. Also getting a light citric acidity. Initial thoughts are that it’s probably a washed coffee from Africa. Whatever it is though it’s definitely very delicious as straight after my first v60 I was grinding for another one. Can’t wait to try it as espresso.

Huge thanks to@fatboyslim for getting such a tasty coffee to us for this months LSOL. I’m excited to see what other flavours I can tease out of it with a bit of experimentation.

Anyone else tried it yet?
