Pleased to confirm the safe arrival today of 2 x straw filled 'pizza' boxes. Hate pizza but love the contents of these.

Thank you @Hasi for facilitating & @Nicknak for posting forward.

Look forward to starting on them towards next weekend

I’ve started mine already 🥴 .. very nice @Hasi .. Might try the roast level you recommend it if you do it again . 😂

Sigri
They good.
Found with the ones I had a slight underdose (55g instead of 60g/1l in syphon) really brought the flavours out.

I'm really enjoying the Vöcklabrand, 2 flat whites down so far. I haven't had a coffee this easy to dial in in a long time. It's a lovely blend @Hasi

Ha! Thank you for the flowers
I've created the blend for a restaurant, there we've discovered the same easy to work with attitude

Ayyyyy! They came yesterday! Thanks @Hasi for them. Any recommended ratios/times on the monkey puzzle? I’m thinking I’ll give it a go first before the Fortuna!

also, thanks @Nicknak for sending them through once they crossed the border!

I got mine today, the little note made me laugh.

Couldn't resist trying the La Fortuna already, my grind was a little too fine so I will try again. Already good though, should be awesome once dialled in.

Thanks @Hasi and @Nicknak

great stuff!
Re ratios... I'm still experimental about taking the Monkey Puzzle to espresso, pulling 16in/38out with various grind settings. But looking fwd to everybody's recipes

Hi @Hasi 

Arrived yesterday and thank you to Nick also for posting on

One slight issue though asked for 500g each of Sigri and monkey puzzle (order #31) and received Monkey puzzle and Panama la fortuna, no issue in itself with this however is there any from looking at the bag you can see if label matches contents just in case they incorrect label correct content? Just conscious someone else might have got an incorrect set (am happy with both having had the panama before from you).

Started in on the monkey puzzle in Moccamaster this morning @63g/1.25L filtered water and getting a more earthy chocolate herb note, reminded me more of an Indonesian than an African

Thanks again 

John

For heaven's sake 🤦‍♂️

Copied yours erroneously into my roasting list. My fault... I'm really sorry!!
Stupid enough, label is correct as our whole process wouldn't allow for a mix-up (that I could think of). You can check underneath label right below zipper, batch number is also stamped onto bag itself.

Hope you'll still enjoy them beans from other side of the world 😖

Well, the Vocklabrand is a winner!

Cracked it open today, guessed the Niche setting, got lucky. 18:43 in 35 seconds at 6 bar. 

Very nice! 👍

Now.......how to tweak it????

Thanks again.

My best results so far have been 18.5:37 in about 30-33seconds. That's with 3-4 seconds pre-infusion

thank you guys!
straight 1:2 ratio works very well with Vöcklabrand, we're currently down to 16g in on ZM/Minima (35s) and 16.5g in on MXP/Rocket Evo2 (30s bloom w/ valve open, then 30s shot). Both at 6bar

I'd pull it a tad longer (like 1:2.5) and really slow.
mostly taking the Sigri to my old LaPav so dosage is different (13g in, aiming for 30g out which is difficult enough on a Europiccola) - long low pressure pre-infusion and a very gentle pull (up to 50s).
@coffeechap did quite some magic with Sigri in the past, perhaps he can recall his recipe?

Got back from holiday today to find mine waiting for me, it’ll probably be next week before I try them, but I’m very much looking forward to it. Thanks Matt
