    Phil,

    Where in Bundy did you source these from? I was unaware that there was green beans available there.
    Can you give me some more details at all?

    Ta heaps

    Hi Linda,

    Youll have to ask Andy about their whereabouts, as I got 500g of the beans as part of a starter pack that I bought around the middle of last year.

    First time I have roasted this bean, so I cant tell you what it is like yet. I will throw them into the grinder on Monday.

    Cheers

    What do they say?

    You can extract the boy out of Aussie but you cant extract a damn decent espresso without some fresh beans, a good grinder and a hell of alot of patience.

    I do a very similar blend, but only 200g of the Bundaberg (only because the Gene only takes 250gm ). I too got the Bundaberg in a sample pack and have just used up the last of it and would love to get some more it tasted so good.

    Agreed, it did taste very nice. Im not good at the descriptions, so Ill just say it was full bodied (the robusta was added dont forget), good crema with a nice taste. What more do you want?

    Id buy the bean again if it comes up.

    Cheers
