I got bored and ordered two back issues of Caffeine one night, not sure why. Something to read.

.......and a care package from my north of the wall bredbin, tonight I try the Rocko Mountain for the first time. Behind the times? Nah just flowing with it all.

I was going to go with Sunday and start on the Finca El Bosque then the weekend after on the signature blend... I saw somewhere after a search that after 10 days from roast the signature blend is at it's best but some people are happy with 5.

Obligatory half key of the new Rocko provided by @jeebsy and @foundrycoffeeroasters.com and a wee bag of the Workshop from @BckToBlckCoffee and @robashton

cracked open the finca today - delicious and easy to dial in too. Lovely stuff and full of strawberries. Roasted on 14th so only 4-5 days rest really...
