I was going with 'biscuits' for aroma 😂

 

I love it when I open a bag of beans and get digestive biscuit 😍

See I'd prefer it if I bought a packet of digestive biscuits and found a kilo of speciality coffee inside. If the packet contained steak or tomatoes I'd be less impressed. I'm loving these flavour descriptions this month! I'm enjoying mine as espresso and flat whites but struggling to put a name to what I am tasting, apart from "good".

Another excellent LSOL offering. In my opinion at it's peak right now.

Following the 18g into 40g recipe (30secondsish) I'm getting a soft smooth shot of nuts and dates. No tomato. No bacon.

I am finding a milk chocolate finish. All in all very balanced and also easy  to achieve consistent results. 

No idea of the origin but would go for a Central American washed. Possibly Honduras. 

LSOL buying team are in great form this quarter. Keep up the splendid work 👍

In espressos to the recipe I get some of the malty sweetness of dates, a little raisin-esque acidity. Nice body which got overwhelming when I ground finer. Nicely balanced and quite moreish to me, I'd be quite happy to buy this. 

I have nowhere near the experience to make an informed guess so for fun I'll say costa rica bc that's where I think I had another bean from which had a touch of raisin.

Taste of bean intensified today in the French press.

Massive intense flavours, really a big change from the quite subtle yesterday. As others said it's taken this long to reach its peak.
