Aeropress recipe idea dices?

 

You got it!

 

The 75 degree brew temp looks a bit risky..... worth a try I suppose

He he - I’m certain in the long run the decision making will be superior to my own efforts over the last 49 years!

Wanting some beans to run through a grinder

 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07CGXZMT3/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

What looks to be slight signs of oil. ;) Had to try them. 17g 1 to 2. 30sec tasted a bit lifeless and cocoa like so will probably be more interesting higher. I suspect it will turn out to be a better than average cafe style bean, unlike costabucks some one might be tempted to say that ok.

 

Pretty coarse grind for 1 to 2 as well.

That's the first time I've seen tamarind as a tasting note! Are you getting that? Sounds interesting.

Eat, drink and be merry[/quote @hotmetal as promised. Made a curry tonight and one of the ingredients was ? Yep tamarind, ideal taste test time, so the next decision was which first the real McCoy or the beans, decided Rave's Sumatra Tano Batak might lose the fight so was chosen to go first. Anyways it turn's out that they do indeed have more than a little resemblance to the real thing so long as the real thing is treated with respect it was a concentrate hence respect was paid.

Grab a bag and try it for yourself if it appeals as you said sounds interesting and indeed it is.


It doesn't matter how you get there it's only the end result that matters

However in a cruel twist of fate, I ran out of beans this morning.

So until tomorrow I just get to look at it.

Fire it up and check for leaks and bleed the stale water out, then it’s straight to business when the beans come!!

No Reiss-beans here :/

 

I've recently started using airspace containers for storage, and misjudged how much was left in them, leading to this little snafu.
