An espresso shot was poured from 19g of fresh grounds from a manual machine (i.e. without milk) … with the grind settings changed from blend #3 we are hoping for a 36 mL pour in 24 seconds … after spilling those grounds and trying again the coffees were ready … mmm cold winters night in Germany, maybe even snowing, chill in the air but warm at cosy. Almost a maple syrup / woody / smoked flavour. Perhaps toasted fruitcake with a sweet after taste. Very smooth.
Adding a little milk … a very different taste … brings out the woody note a little more. It’s like the bitter taste in 70-90% cocoa chocolate.
You can by this coffee from Leaf Bean Machine in Bibra Lake, Western Australia.
