  • rawbean experience

    hi , today I just tried a new coffeeshop in sydney called rawbean... what a let down! coffee is harsh and acidic. everything speaks italian in their website at exception of the owners ..greeks. the shop is actually nice I will be more inclined to have a real greek coffee experience, if you like try their greeks frappe, thats very good !
    But avoid a straight short black !!!

    Welcome to CS rawcoffee.

    An interesting first post.

    Frappe is made with instant coffee; not something looked upon highly here.

    Did you complain to them about your short black?
    Venting here wont help.

        Thats right, frappe is made with a special nescafe.... made solely for that purpose, if you like can add icecream and make it drinkable, however that was good ,as usually only greeks can make the original one, however I rather have it with icecream, condensed milk( for the sweet) , totally different taste from a real coffe, testy. tough... I own a couple of two group machine a boema and a wega. Im not much in big brands, the secret of a good coffee after the right blend sits in the grinder, too many times good coffee is lost in the grinder.
        Everybody love their coffee but at the end of the story is not was is good but what you like! I organize my blend exclusively with central- south america and african beans. I cannot stand the taste of soil from india or the taste of straw from most of the pacific areas. always looking for a good coffee... i enjoy small roasters with humble approch and ready to help you out finding what you like, I stay away from the fake artisans.. see areas in woolloomoolo or newtown....sometimes try the new ones and have "the experience" but coffee is also tradition, colture, and passion, no wonder no one wants to drive a chinese car or an indian car...or a greek car ( there are any anyway...) you cannot improvise yourself roaster if you drunk frappe most of your life, cmon!!!! :-/ Not only that... Italians are the masters but swedish are the teachers....in good strong black coffee

                My father was Greek so I think I can make a reasonable frappe.

                My great grandfather was Italian but I think I can make a better coffee than some Italians.

                Each to their own.

                    I resent the implied complement and suggest you wash ya mouth out with windex...

                    I have it on good authorty that Windex is a cureall  ;D

                    Maybe some should use windex in their frappe and they may get a better result  ;D

                    PS... The better part of me is Greek and my current wife is Sicilian..... Thus am I being PIC yep and who cares  ;D

                    PPS. Note: Windex is no good for cleaning unburnt IMR 4198

                        It was a rawbeanpowder experience... Cleaned the bench (paper towel and Windex) and later; tossed into a firplace...

                        Bugger me Now that crap is more dangerious than 240V...

                        Actualy a sprinkel would add some kick to a frape

                          Bloody ell mate....

                          Throwing propellant contaminated paper on to a fire would definitely have the potential for creating some exciting results. Not sure about adding to a frappe though : :P
