    Presso Blend coffee beans

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hey guys,

    First post here, I just bought a Presso and it came with some Presso beans (off the website). I am just wondering if anyone has any experience with these beans and what they should taste like.

    The first few Presso shots I made were poor, (rough grind, poor tamping) and resulted in something between a "gusher" and a proper shot, however when I mixed it with milk it tasted like something Id happily buy from a cafe.

    However, after I fixed my technique a little and getting some crema with my shots, I have found that the shots arent strong enough to be taken with milk. Mixing the shot with half a cup of skim milk, I find it just overpowers the coffee flavour completely and there isnt enough bitterness.

    Sorry in advance if this is a novice question. Im new to all this and my palette is used to second grade cafe coffee.

    Hmm, it could just be the blend of the beans is suited to espresso rather then milk based drinks

    only other thing I can consider is, How freshly are the beans ground? Even waiting five minutes can adjust the taste for some roasts
