    :o 20% robusta I havnt gone above 10% so far :) Normally using the Robusta 5-7 days older than the main bean/s and enjoying the extra punch.

    Ive never gona over 25% robusta in a blend and i dont think i ever will. At 25% it tasted too ash like and very smokey...a little bit dirty even?

    I think 15% is a good number for some extra punch. For me :)

    Maybe its the Malabar or that its monsoon robusta.
    Works for me!

    Revisited this one but then added Tanzania Rononi, to make it more like 30/30/30/10...even better!
    Body not quite as thick but more depth of flavour.
