Very good point this.

I think a lot of us including myself often forget the quite staggering lengths that some growers go to to bring us our favourite drink.

If anyone would like an eye opening listen about coffee farming I can whole heartedly suggest this (we have some coffee arriving from them soon, I can't wait!!!) -

mine hasnt arrived yet, but when it does. how long should i leave it to rest before using? how should i be drinking it?

Good question. For me my test batches hit peak at about 2 weeks post roast for espresso.

I have included a recipe on the bag that I found to produce consistent tasty espresso for me but recipes come with the usual caveats.

Made lovely V60 and great iced coffee (not exactly sophisticated, I know!) back when we were having some hot days.

Mine have arrived as well, squeezed the bag for a little whiff but will wait till the morning for the grand opening. Major dilemma do I retrieve some beans from the freezer to tide me over the next days whilst resting these or just dig in (don't want to try getting these right if they aren't at their best for a week or so)

Mine has landed. Thank you very much! 

I really appreciate a recipe even just as a ballpark. I know some roasters don't seem to like it but I think it helps me a lot.

Will Tyra and get these going in about a week and a half then 😁

I always leave mine a bit, prob a bit longer than many others. I have a day or two's worth of beans left in my jar and I will open and finish another 250g before I start on the LSOL beans. I am expecting to try them next weekend.
