    Smooth sweet espresso blend

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    60/40 Niguragan/Sumatran, roasted CS9 for the Nig, CS10 for the Indo. 14 days post roast; a lovely very easy drinking sweet, bright cocoa shot with zero bitterness.

    Sounds nice. 14 days is a fairly long rest time or did you start drinking this earlier?

    Started beforehand, but only started blending them once I had a feel for what was going on with the beans.

    Ya it really sounds nice.
    For me the blend is the most important part of good espresso.
    Without a good espresso coffee blend you cannot have a good espresso.

    Maybe it's not meant to sound the way you have expressed it, but I cannot agree with that at all!

    Try 60% PNG Peaberry with 15% Ethiopian Yirga and balance Columbian roasted separately and then blended
