    Lovely coffee

    Posted by M Wallace on 19th Feb 2021

    Used for espresso, with appropriate steps taken due to light roast (ie, higher temp, pre-infusion, super-fine grind, lower pressure, longer extraction time, 1:3 ratio etc)
    Delicious coffee when had as espresso. Could prob unlock cleaner flavours as filter, but no complaints at all about bean/roast character.

    Quality but Bitter

    Posted by Joshua Goodman on 25th Jan 2021

    Clearly a very high quality coffee, we were happy with it, however the bitterness of black tea definitely dominated the subtler, fruitier flavours. When I blended this with a slightly fruitier [espresso roast] Ethiopian, it performed really well.

    Distinct flavour that sets it apart from the rest

    Posted by Greg on 19th Apr 2018

    I first had a cup of this at Bondi Junction in 2015. The barista advised that there is a distinct berry flavour educed by light roasting. I had heard descriptions before about flavours that you would find in coffee but most of the time I couldn’t detect them. First taste and I was blown away. Very distinct berry flavour. I have tried another brand in the interim and whilst it was very good. A recent visit to Rosebery and I had to revisit Yirgacheffe. So much more depth and punch. The berry reminds me of juniper. It is offset by a caramel flavour. Highly recommended.
