    Hello all,

    I'm going to go severely off topic (or back on topic?) and let you all know what was in my grinder and cup today. I had the Nicaragua Jaunica that I bought at Three Bags Full in Abbotsford, Vic on the weekend. It was only roasted on the 27/11 (5 Sense I'm pretty sure) and I do like to see what happens to the coffee a week or two after roast date. I made an espresso using a single basket (my housemate a double ristretto with the larger double). Normally I drink double ristretto's but I have been experimenting after reading a few books. I am however about to make my first purchase on BeanBay and am very interested to see how it goes.

    All the talk about home roasting on this site also get me wondering if I should dig out a popcorn machine, or just go straight for a corretto setup...

    Whats in my grinder and cup today?

    In my grinder is an Ethiopian Guji natural processed from Clandestino Roasters on the sunny coast at a week and a half after roast date. In a cup as a FW is very nice with a fair bit of body but as a Short Black it is amazingly fruity and smooth.

    Sumatra Wahana Estate roasted on Friday. Proabably needs to rest a bit longer but I let stocks get too low so no option. Reminds me of the Ethiopian Harrar Longberry with the blueberry notes.

    I'm try Morgans The Pony. Good spice, lots body. Where can I get coffee like this online? Happy for this taste, but very expensive for blend?

    Recently my partner dropped into a Di Bella (site sponsor) cafe and after enjoying an in-house brew, she purchased a couple of 250g bags of fresh roasted bean blends to bring home. Having roasted single origin beans at home for a while, I have to admit that I was mighty impressed by these blends as a change from the SO. We've had a few different roast batches now and the consistency of the same blend each time does stand out. My personal favorite is the Di Bella Felici, a real chocolate bomb. Modena is another great blend. Have to admit that we'll be drinking both home roast and Di Bella from now on. There is some obvious skill in blending with that mob!

    We're drinking an Purosa Estate Organic from the Eastern Highlands of New Guinea. It's a fabulous full bodied SO and cuts through milk nicely with milk chocolate and dried fruit in the mouth. It's one of about a dozen other SO's we've had in the past year but definitely a favourite.

    I opened a bag of kopi lewak bought in Bali today .... I've either been conned or can't get the grind setting correct but the brew was bad. Bitter, hollow and lacked depth. Think I'll stick to Seven Seed's house blend. Yum!

    Tried some Lewak a while back, similar experience, tasted like something that came out of a Civet cats bum.

    In my new (on loan) mini mazzer grinder (my life is changed!!) is just the blend from Clandestino Roasters. Perfect extraction over the perfect temp water. (I had a long black because there is no milk in the house) and tastes gorgeously like dark chocolate and as a fantastic body.

    I'm drinking the Guatemalan 'Las Nubes'. Bourbon and caturra, fully washed. Super sweet, peach and pear acidity. One of my favourite coffees this year.

    El Salvador COE Lot 7 La Gloria.

    I've been a bit slow to mention this though. I've run about 3 kg of Lot 7 and 1 kg of Lot 12 la Miravalle through the macap in the last month, and I'm seriously facing an addiction issue.

    I am finding that I knock back twice as many ristrettos than usual. It's not the caffiene, it's the TASTE.

    I just had a macchiato made from the last of my Australia Mountain top Ray’s Selection green beans that I bought from Andy two years ago. I roasted it 20 days ago in a popper and the flavour now is superb with a beaut lingering aftertaste. My best coffee for a while.

    Whoah, that's going back! I took over Ray's job 3.5 years ago and don't think any of Ray's selection was still selling then.

    Just picked some freshly roasted (5 days back) Panama Hacienda La Esmeralda - Palmyra (single origin). Cannot wait to extract a doppio tonight. Its characteristics are/should be medium body, medium acidity, notes of nuts, chocolate and vanilla glimmer throughout.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1426216259.076717.jpg

    Just cracked a seasonal blend from Grace and Taylor roasting company 10 days post roast. I think I'm pulling the best coffee from my SJ-Mitica combo ever!

    I just pulled a shot of Axil's seasonal blend of Brazilian and Colombian. It was roasted couple days back and it was well balanced. I'll give it another crack in a couple days time to see if the flavour changes.

    Today I have 'The Mailing Rooms' Black Mamba blend of 35% Ethiopia and 65% Honduras. Hits the spot. Nice straight up as an espresso and goes really well with milk too. Might have to grab another batch as I'm sure to go through this one within few days.

    50/50 blend of Yemen Bani Ismail and Guatemala Huehuetenango, taken to just on 2nd crack. Very smooth once I finally dialed it in.

    I've been hearing good things about beanbay so I just picked up my order of espresso wow from Andy. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1429586518.447562.jpg

    I'll let it sit for a few days first then report.
    It was roasted on Sunday 19th so how long post roast have members let it sit before using?

    G'day kg...

    Given that it is a 500g bag, I'd start trying it now. It should be great straight from the postie but as time goes on, it will get even better...

    Thanks for the advice mal.

    I'll wait til my better half gets home and I'll pull a few shots then report. It's smelling really good when I squeeze the bag to let the aromas out through the valve.

    Well I couldn't wait so here is the pull without adjusting my grinder. Since then I've slowed the pour down a bit as I like my flavours a little more rich.


    Taste wise it is awesome as an 'un caffé' two days post roast and I'm sure it will improve in the coming days.

    A week and a day post roast on espresso wow. Gotta say it's come up beautifully. As a doppio it's the bees knees and it has taken first position on my leaderboard pushing Axil roasters blend down a spot.

    Market Roasters Single Origin from Colombia ..Carlos Dias Las Margaritas with Full Cream Milk (Piccolo)
    Third morning I've had it and the novelty is already wearing off. Will go back to my wood fired Mr Espresso Beans tomorrow I think. Some of the most underrated beans around in my opinion.
    They are always fresh, full bodied and keeps me buzzing all day!!
    It's the wood that makes them good!!!
