I also made a wildcard blend out of all of the odd priming grammes which somehow came out at exactly the same weight as all of the A-E cups – down to the .1g. It was surprisingly nice. Would've been h

Don't worry about cups, any vessel will do, last year my set up was very mix and match, a mug, a couple of cups, a glass and an old shoe! *         * I'm joking about the shoe

Really enjoyed that! D was my favourite, with A as a runner-up. 

I could still taste E an hour later which wasn't fun. It may have been purely psychological though 🤣

I was able to spot a few things and also correctly guess a few things (no spoilers!) which surprised me.

C and D were our favourites by a fair margin. E was not to our taste either!

Made me reconsider some coffees that I hadn’t appreciated as much as maybe I should have done.

Really well organised, logistics of that many sample packets must have been a bit challenging...

I think E might be the new fast test developed for COVID-19: if you can drink it with no issues - you probably have the virus. 😉

Didn't participate, did just go straight to spoilers. I drank Coffee C roasted by Method Roastery at Wayland's Yard yesterday. Delicious as a flat white. 

edit: A lot cheaper from Method, if that matters to you.

I've just had a cup of C, made with the remaining 15 grams. 2:6 on the Feld 47, inverted AeroPress and a process very similar to the cupping. Boiling hot water (250 grams) over the coffee, wait 4 minutes and brake the crust, skim of foam/floaters, put on the filter/cap, flip the AeroPress over a cup, wait 8-10 minutes more, and then push.

Very nice result, sweet and floral :)

How do you know it's the same lot? They just give you the station on the website?

You are right - my brain worked faster than my eyes. I don't; I rushed.

I can, however, say that the Method one is a Very Nice Coffee.
