Coffee Compass 'issues'


Recommended Posts

I'm due to make an order for some coffee soon, and I was planning on trying Coffee Compass .

Last time I ordered from them was over a year ago and I was happy.

Recently I have been reading here that some people have been having issues with their coffee? Is this still the case, or is everything "back to normal"?

I think you are taking it all a bit personally. And I don't mean that in a bad way. [email protected] has said is perfectly reasonable and makes sense. I think the points raised are valid and I happen to agr

Thanks Planter and it's unfortunate if it has come over personally because, really, it's only coffee and I'm not really taking it that personally.  If it helps, I'm a fairly direct person by nature, 

It was me that mentioned the sweet bourbon wasn't as nice on my (new to me) Alex Duetto compared to my old PID Gaggia Classic and I queried if the roast was not as good, interestingly one or two other

not sure what you are referring to?

recent threads all seem positive and people recommending frequently.

my own experience has been positive - i received a 8 pack selection recently (first order with them) very quick, roasted on one day, posted and received the next.

I think there was some issue last summer related to exceptionally warm weather or something. There's no issues at the moment that I'm aware of.

Their delivery is so quick! Ordered the Sweet Bourbon blend the 9th, roasted on the 10th, delivered to me on the 11th, chilled on Sunday. Haven't tried yet, beans are still resting.

I've never ever been let down in any way by Coffee Compass. Excellent Company - coffee - service.

Very consistant with all beans I've ever had from them over the years

This must have been a fairly isolated incident that stood out in my head for some reason then.
It was me that mentioned the sweet bourbon wasn't as nice on my (new to me) Alex Duetto compared to my old PID Gaggia Classic and I queried if the roast was not as good, interestingly one or two others chimed in and felt the weather might have had an effect.

I've not tried the sweet bourbon again as we hit up the Mahogany Malabar roast lately.

I've not tried anyone else to compare (on the subscription 1.5kg coffee delivered comes in at 25 shiney liney pounds) but their service is awesome. I always use it fresh and don't rest the beans

Follow up on this, maybe it's nothing though.

I finished yesterday the 500gr of the excellent Malabar, and after carefully defrosting the Sweet Bourbon, started putting it through its paces, dialing it in.

The roast date on the Malabar was the 11th, and for the Bourbon the 13th, hence the bourbon spending 4 days doublebaged in the freezer.

The problem I've been having is that, no matter the grind setting I choose, no matter the basket make or size, no matter the preparation (wdt, rdt, just dump in and compress), this batch is either bitter or when I go the other direction, watery and flavorless.

I have tried with 150gr worth of coffee, making shots with anywhere between 17 and 18.5 in basket, and 1:1 to 1:3 yields, and between 15 and 40sec pulls.

There is either something wrong with this batch, or my SJ is dying..., yet all of the Malabar was flawless, took me 2 shots to dial it in.

If anyone has similar roast date for their Sweet Bourbon, can you please let me know if it's just me having issues?

Not from this date, however had some roasted a few weeks prior which was fine through the niche, lovely body and taste at 1:2 ratio at about 36 secs (including 7 secs preinfusion)

Thanks mate, same for me, had a bag a few weeks ago which was awesome, and the reason I ordered again. This one however...

This is what I experienced. So glad it's not just me - on my classic with unpressurised basket it was awesome pretty much every batch. On my Alex, rough.

I wonder if they've had to source a new supplier for the raw beans or something?
