  • Bean selection

    Hi Guys

    From the BeanBay selection of green beans which one would give a mild taste as a flat white without blending.

    Something smooth.

    My daughter likes the idea of drinking coffee, without the strong taste.

    Hmmmm.....lots of things affect whether you get a 'mild taste' in a flat white.

    The PNG Wahgi might well suit, but so will a good proportion of the available beans. The Brazil PN and Mexico options would also work.

      Thanks for info Barry.

      Roasting to say C8, before second crack help with "mildness"?

        Dropping early will simply reduce the overall strength & flavour of any SO - rather than give you the full impact of a lovely, yet mild bean.
        Second the PNG - get this right you can get closer to a caramel milkshake than coffee! And Yirgacheffe gives a really interesting result too - beautiful warm spice flavours through milk. The Indian Peaberry is nice and sweet too… but all of these mild need just before/on 2C to reach their potential

        Cheers Matt

            Yeah - it's a hard one.
            The number of people who have said to me "I don't like coffee" or "I don't like strong coffee" are often used to strong, feral, dark roasted, over extracted, uncleaned machine bitterness which has to cut through 4 sugars and 1 litre of milk.
            I make all of my coffee pretty strong (single shot into a small 160ml glass for flats) but with no bitterness there have been a number of converts - people say things like "Oh that's quite sweet!" - and we all say in unison "That's what coffee is supposed to taste like!"

            Brasil's are good too - super smooth, sweet milk chic… when you roast them well
