Has anyone had much experience with Aussie beans?

I bought some a few weeks ago and was so excited to try them, unfortunately I was pretty disappointed  :-[

Anyone had any luck with them?

I had amazing beans a few years ago. It’ll be on a thread somewhere!

Hmmm, I was wondering if maybe I could have roasted them a little darker.
I might push them a bit further next time and see what I get.

Thanks.

What grower did you get them from? I’ve had the natural from MTC before and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. I’d get the washed next time for sure though as the natural wasn’t easy to roast on the Behmor.
I also know people who have tried Sunbury and been really happy. There are quite a few other growers now, but I don’t anything about them sorry.
I love coffee. It's as simple as that.

Hi LeroyC.

They are from Skybury.
I am just about to run out of the Ethiopians in the hopper and the rest of the Aussie ones will be back in the hopper by the weekend, so I will be giving them another go.
They weren't bad, just not what I expected I guess.
Next time I will aim for a darker roast and see what that gives me.

Skybury is what I meant (thanks autocorrect). As I said I haven’t actually tried them, but I know a few people that have bought them in the past and been really happy. I did however here that their most recent crop wasn’t up to the same standard. I’m sure you’ll still be able to get them to a point where you’re reasonably happy with them, they just might not be all that exciting. What makes you think you need to go darker/further? Are they a little grassy or under developed?

Ha ha, it happens.

That is the perfect way to descibe them, not overly exciting, not horrible but they just don't have that wow factor.

They are not grassy or under developed, just a bit thin and lacking.

Maybe they just aren't for me.

I'll pop some more in the roaster in the near future and see what happens.

MTC is also a favorite and really well priced!
