    Rwanda Nyamasheke Kamina Washed - this coffee is a truly exceptional washed coffee from Rwanda, tastes like key lime pie and jasmine and clean simple sugar. I roasted it to a true light roast, and pulled a 25g shot over 97 seconds with 18g in.

    Absolutely exceptional. Wow.

    Wow! That looks and sounds freaking awesome. Unique for certain. Is that something commercially available or is it a tgapp special roast?

    Couple months back, I finally got around to getting a single wall basket for my little Bambino Plus, along with a really nice dosing funnel. Both of those things have been very nice improvements. The baskets made it much easier to dial in my grounds and such, and the funnels helped me actually keep all my grounds where they should be so I can keep the right amount in while I stir up with my janky paper clip WDT tool. Results have improved for sure.

    nice yeah amazing how such cheap workflow improvements make a huge difference. for me it's a $3 dissection needle but I wouldn't hesitate to use a paperclip, all my paperclips just end up being bowl pokers

    and yeah dude light roasted espresso is a bitch to dial in without flow control so it might not be the best bet for you but if you send me your address I'll mail you some beans that should work well

    The crema on that looks dope tgapp.

    Just brewed my last of that Yemeni on a dreary, chilly morning here in Denver. Even after this long off roast it still needed significant bloom time. That was an incredible bag of coffee. Thanks dude.

    bleh I made another one but loosened up the grind (went from like an 11.5 to a 14 on the Niche) for God knows why and ended up at 48g over 85 seconds and it was watery and uncompelling and just not nearly as fucking good, whatever, now I'm over caffeinated and I want the original one back

    And yeah doebedoe, Yemeni coffee is fucking dope, I'm keeping an eye out for that Special Red lot again and I will absolutely buy more of it

    Tgapp (or anyone else...):

    any thoughts on "Turbo Espresso" shots? original videos from last summer, but getting some more traction recently. The basic idea is loosen the grind, bump the pump pressure down to 6 bar, and pump out a 2.5 or 3 to 1 shot in under 20 seconds. Seems so counterintuitive, and takes away some of the texture of a slow-pulled shot, but the taste/extraction reviews are very positive...

    I'll have my kid bring you back some if the AF sends him to Yemen again. (Are blood beans anything like blood diamonds?)

    Thatís a slow mover. I can see why you bumped the grind but too big a swing I guess. Glad the slow mover resulted in glory!

    I have a soft spot in my heart for Expobar. Iíve owned two office levers. I am sure the brewtus is a killer set up.
    It tasted likeÖ. Cold brewed espresso. Iím not sure how else to put it but the mellow flavor you get from cold brew? It tastes like that but with espresso. Both the wife and I agreed we liked traditional espresso better. I guess if you are really into / used to cold brew, this is a good way to quickly make cold brew.

    My green bean supply is dwindling down. Anyone made any recent purchases they like?

    that's a question for the coffee roasting thread jong

    Royal just landed in three coffees from Galo Morales, none of which I've had, but all of Galo's coffee is exceptional and I would buy without question. I'm eyeing his natural that Royal is carrying right now
