Had some trouble dialing it in with our espresso machine.
Forgiving to dial in, the quality is consistent, but the Melon and Praline are hard to pull out.
Definitely take the brew guidelines into account. This would have saved me a lot of time and beans. My first shots were extremely bright (seems lighter than other medium roasts). After grinding finer and extracting more, the flavor became more complex with a bit of sweetness. Kind of a brighter fruity acidity. So far I've been doing 17.7g in ( portafilter usually holds 16.5g for medium roast before getting a screen print), ~35g out in 28-30sec. This is when the bitter notes start creeping in. It's an interesting roast, not sure I'd go for this again.
Great balanced flavor. Was able to get consistent pulls.
I liked this was dark, but not super acidic/bitter.
Great espresso, can definitely taste the chocolate and maple. Did not taste the melon, tho. Enjoyed it, thanks!
Really liked this one, full flavor without being overwhelming
Well balanced and refreshing!
Had a hard time getting a consistent shot from this. More fruit than I prefer.
Had on espresso machine and aero press. Was better on aero press brought out wonderful fruit
Really enjoyed it! Would love to have it again.
I did this as a pour over, not as an espresso, and still got a lot of the described notes. The strength and sweetness combination of this roast was surprisingly balanced to me.
Excellent and well balanced flavor.
Not bad, can be a little light. Hard to dial in to the recommendations on my Breville Barista Express. It says 20g Coffeys, 40g output, and 28 second pull time. 20g Dialed, time dialed, but it always extracts 50-55g, and the pressure is super high. Still tastes good! Maybe that's why it's a little light.
One of the best espressos I've ever had! Complex, but still rich and bodied like a classic.
