Compass Mystery Mk13

Recommended Posts

Really enjoying these now. They're a good couple of weeks post-roast (approaching 3 weeks in fact) and it's a sweet, chocolate base with that lovely malty thing. There is a tiny hint of acidity but not a citrus one. 


I go 17g in, 42-45g out at 6-8 bar pressure. Yummy. If you were not keen on the beans, I'd suggest trying espresso again - longer ratio seems to benefit it (although I seem to enjoy a long ratio on the robot with other blends too).

I opened a bag of these today, and I'm struggling to get any flavour out of them.  However, if i go any finer or increase the qty the machine chokes up.  I suspect it's my sub par machine (ESAM4200 B2C and modded KG79 grinder) rather than the beans though. 

It's 9 days after they where roasted, and i'm using them in a latte.

Should I try and keep dialling them in, or just let them rest another week?
