Experimental/funky beans


Zeak

Recommended Posts

I've ordered up a couple of interesting bags from Neighbourhood that may be of interest on here.

Been hearing a lot about Pink Bourbon, so I've gone for this Colombian one which uses a double ferment process. Decent price for 250g of Pink Bourbon too.

And I also decided to order a bag of these natural Colombian beans. A boozy mix of rum & raisin and blueberry sounds right up my street. The description reminded me of those infamous Monteverde beans from Rave, but I can only pray that they're remotely close to them!

My first order from Neighbourhood, so fingers crossed it's a winner.

tropical flavours & florals we've come to love from Jose's experimental lots, and this absolutely ticks the boxes. Expect big juicy fruits & florals with a clarity & cleanliness 

I’m getting anything but the above as espresso. Beans seem to be on the medium/dark side of things.

@MediumRoastSteam Those flavoured are not really going to come with a darker roast. Quite an expensive coffee too, which is a shame.

I figured as much as soon as I cracked the bag open Dave. 😔

Just drinking this as I type. Incredible pink bourbon!

Ahhhhh wish I’d hung on a couple of hours but have put an order in with NorthStar this afternoon. Ah well I’ll order next week as going through beans at the moment at a ridiculous rate for me!!

Just ordered a bag of these David along with some others. Looking forward to it. Sounds delicious!

Following up on this. These beans are excellent @BlackCatCoffee!  They're boozy and funky but also carry quite a lot of clean acidity which I find is often lost in a lot of naturals. Definitely the best bean I've had from Black Cat!

I forgot to mention how I got on with Neighbourhood's Colombian Finca Patio Bonito beans, so here we go...

My first time with pink bourbon and double fermentation, so I was curious as to what would be waiting in the cup. And, well, it was a pleasant brew if not life changing. Very floral, fragrant and sweet. Couldn't really pick out any of the tasting notes that Neighbourhood suggested, but if you're a fan of sweet, floral coffees it's recommended.

The Neighbourhood Colombian beans above did not disappoint.

As it cooled there was a massive hit of rum and raisin. Really very nice!

I was a big fan of those as well. I actually found it also tasted fantastic even when it was pretty hot - always a good sign in my experience.
