The coffee is fantastic. The service was great. Will be subscribing. Pulls a fanatic punchy espresso with a great crema via my Sage machine at a grind setting of 6.
Really enjoyed this coffee: as the team say, punchier than the Chocolate Brownie so cuts through 'milkies' better. With the Sage Grinder I kept at 6 but increased my dose to 16.4g which seemed to work with the wee Bambino Plus. I would get this coffee blend again
Love this coffee has a depth to the flavour and is very drinkable
Hits the spot for me. My new favourite.
The taste was ok but I found the beans quite pale and very bulky on grind (my usual setting was far too much for the portafikter).
The coffee was smooth but I didn’t get the chocolate as much as a Starbucks espresso roast.
Maybe I am just set in my ways
Thanks for your feedback. It sounds like you're grinding too coarse, and under extracting. When comparing freshly roasted beans to your Starbucks beans, the difference is that you don't really need to dial in those kinds of beans, you can't do a great deal to change the way they taste. With Chocolate Fondant, being very fresh and vibrant, you can impact the flavour quite a lot. If you get closer to being dialled in, you should find a huge difference in taste, when dialled in this coffee should taste ultra chocolaty. Thanks :-).
