Recently got my first order from CoffeeSnobs, two lots of roasted beans totally 1kg, probably the most amount of coffee I have brought at one time! I really need to taste soem of the premo stuff to get an idea of where I am at with my super roasting skills 😉
Anyway, I can definitely recommend Andy Freeman from CoffeeSnobs, I ordered this on the Sunday evening and received them in the post on the friday – labbeled with a roast date of the wednesday! can’t get much fresher than that from mail order!
In terms of what I got;
Peru Ceja de Selva Estate
Organic certified at origin by Naturland this high grown coffee comes from an estate at the base of the Andes
I have only just had a single cup from this lot so far, still getting the grind right (currently at 10 on the rocky) but, wow, it is something else!
Apparently only found in Yirgacheffe.
I have gotten through about 25% of this lot, nailed the grind at 11 or 12 on the rocky and depending on how hard I feel like tamping. This stuff is great, very mello and easy drink, can easily pull this through twice on the La Pavoni and still have a nice smooth taste – very different to a typical espresso bean. If your into tasting various flavours, this one has a caramelly (is that a word) aftertaste/undertone.
The Ethiopia bean is the smaller of the two.
