    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.

    Murphy's law I'm afraid - the beans always hit their peak just as the bag runs out! Sounds like a cracking roast though

    One of the lessons of coffee roasting: knowing when the coffee is at its best (to your taste) and timing your roasts accordingly. I currently have two 450 batches resting in my cupboard. One was roasted on May 13 so it will be about 10 or 11 days old when I start drinking it. The second bag I roasted this morning.

    I received my first ever BeanBay order this morning.

    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.

    Ditto....

    Always a toss-up between these and any of the excellent Colombians for me, of South American beans...

    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.
