Zeak

Enjoying the Ugandan Ibanda from Django - tonnes of strawberries and plums, quite clean for a natural process as filter, but turns into a funky fruity cheesecake with a shorter milk based brew.

It might not be an experimental process, but it’s a solid choice and great value.

The Ibanda is fantastic. Just weighed my beans out for the morning!

Already have one in the shed and my partner is complaining there's no room for food anymore! I have very little self control. 

Is there a way to tell whether a particular coffee has a short/long run for a roaster? If I knew there's enough stock to be sold next X weeks I would have a much easier time with my fear of missing out!

Tried the Finca El Paraiso from Gardelli this morning, as V60. I must say it tastes excellent, and exactly as described on their website, very peachy/apricoty. Very elegant and refined, unlike some of the crazy "candy fruit" type of beans.

Is it worth the price? I don't know... had it with the Black Friday offer which made it a bit easier to swallow (and price per cup ends up being OK compared to going out for coffee). Probably in my top 5 ever, and other coffees I have in stock might seem a bit lacklustre after this one, but it's clearly not number 1 for me. This spot still belongs to the NinetyPlus Jose Alfredo Process Panama Gesha... wish I had bought some of those when I had the occasion (or, even more accurately: wish I lived in Japan)!

I got both black and yellow honey. Never had any honey process so having both to compare side by side -- well, one after the next -- over Xmas feels like a great novel experience.

Have you tried them yet? Interestingly, I noticed on their website it said to use them within 1 month! Just in case you missed it!

Oh good shout I hadn't noticed that. I only just received them last week. Looking at my calendar, they're scheduled to be used before the end of the year so all good (I aim for using beans around 3 weeks or so after roast)
