    Summer Coffee Treat!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi everyone
    Had a bad roast day (like one of my recent batches - way too sour - undrinkable so!), over-catered on the browns over Christmas and they're in danger of going stale, or been given a large 1kg bag of supermarket-bought (roasted in 2010) for the "ideal coffee-snob present"?
    Well, this is my solution - works a treat! After pouring & freezing, two 'espresso blocks' in a large cup (defrost first), few scoops of icecream and milk. Rivals anything from a cafe :-) And many of the espresso 'glaring flaws' like under/over roasted flavours or staleness disappear under all the sugar!

    So, never throw away beans again, and enjoy the long hot summer. And the freezer end up smelling great too!

    Have a blessed Christmas and a great New Year everyone
    Matt

    You need a milkshake maker. Iced coffee thick shake. Yum.
