    For capps not Gold for my taste (nice for plunger or other brewed methods) and WOW is best suited for Short or Long Blacks IMO rather than Milk based drinks (currently wearing my flameproof coat hat, pants & underwear ;) ) It still goes really well over Milk drinks but for me it doesnt quite hit the spot. So what to do out of the current offerings?

    Best bet is to buy a variation of beans and decide for yourself. Maybe WOW, Harrar Longberry (great in milk), Peru Ceja de Selva (slightly different flavours) and even grab a decaff to try.

    While it might be viewed as a cliché let your own taste buds guide you on your search for what YOU like :)

    Now thats a consumer choice that only takes 1 second to make between the 2

    And your taste buds will thank you for it

    Think Chateau Cardboard to a really nice Henscke (grange is for to#$%^s with to much money) in one easy step :)

    Enjoy the journey.

    a little OT ... but .. *a real hidden gem is the CSM from Elderton (now called "Ode to Lorraine")


    back on track .....

    What about Fiefys Blend .. that looks the goods for a Milk based drink. And the another option is to get the roasted Sample pack (4x 250grms)
