2 Weeks since roast this stuff has hit its peak and every cup I make tastes incredible. I wish coffee tasted this good all the time! I am nearly through the bag and unfortunately most of it wasn't as good as now! Probably my favourite bean so far and I have friends who also are big fans.
I prefer South American varietals to the African so was pleased when this bean exceeded expectations straight out of the bag at only a couple of days age. Nice lingering caramel notes and no harsh acidity. Perfect as a ristretto shot as well, although I prefer it as a normal double shot.
Well done Andy, I'm extremely happy with this bean. Please pass on my thanks to the crew for a great roast.
Peru Ceja de Selva coffee beans are one the best to me. I always have a few kgs these at home. Its fun to try other sorts as well, but these are my favourite ones.
They do have a BIG fan club, beautiful coffee time and time again.
I got lazy over the past 12 months and bought roasted beans. Some good, some not so good. But all $40+ from supposedly top roasters. Seven days ago I decided to dust off the coretto and roast up what's left of my PCDS stash. Today I cupped. Haven't tasted coffee this damn good in soooooo long. Always good to get back to basics.
Really enjoying this, seems to excel in milk based drinks, lovely smoothness to the flavour and a good length. It's making me look good!! Everyone is like, "Damn this is a nice cup of coffee how do you do it?" seems to partner Flat Whites perfectly. In expresso form it seems to get better as it cools, little bit more tannic bite and less astringency.
