There has been quite a long spell since the last post in this thread and I was asked by the little person running around in the background of this forum to consider starting a new topic.
Yeah, I could but I really want Jeff and the team at My Cuppa to know that I appreciate the service, the quality and the info shared (in this thread).
I am up here in the Hunter Valley (quite a distance north of Mexico, sorry, Melbourne) and found myself in the stressful situation of running out of (roasted) beans due to my CCR/JYR having an electrical problem, requiring a new part from OS.
Having only once before enjoyed a My Cuppa blend some time ago, I chose to purchase again after perusing the offerings.
I ordered on Saturday afternoon the 14th:
1kg of Tiger Mountain. (Have roasted this myself previously, liked it very much so saw it as a chance to compare.)
1kg of the Suuweet because of it's popularity and description.
And 1 Tiger Mountain hessian coffee bag to help decorate my roast station. BONUS! (There were 2 bags in the box and I assume Jeff or one of his crew were applying their well known generosity) Thanks.
The box of goodies arrived early this morning the 19th just an hour after consuming the last of my Ethiopian Bifta Gesha. Great timing!
Probably a bit early (5th day) after roast date (14th) but I had to give the Suweet a (double) shot through the naked at my morning coffee break.
With no alteration of the grinder, it extracted very nicely and tasted pretty damn good.
A slightly finer adjustment and a small up-dose looked even better.
Although it's only 5 days PR, I am going to indulge by way of the usual LB in the morning and FW around 10ish for the next 5 or 6 days to experience any changes as the Suweet matures.
The Tiger Mountain (roasted 16th) will be stored for another week at least.
Cheers again Jeff. Appreciate your input here and in your newsletter.
