Getting product details...

From Lee @ Foundry Coffee Roasters:

This coffee has been sourced for us by our friends at Falcon Speciality. The coffee is grown on two separate farms by two farmers who are keen to improve the quality of the coffee that they produce.

We always aim to have at least one coffee in our offering that is just like this one. It's super solid and incredibly easy to work with. We're not talking about fruitiness or huge complexity with this coffee - and the acidity is tame - but where it really delivers is in the smooth, buttery body and the huge chocolate and caramel notes.

There are subtle orange and raisin hints but its the big, smooth, sweet flavours that dominate. We've been serving this in the coffee shop for a few weeks now and it may well be the most well received coffee we've ever had! In fact, we'd defy anyone to drink this coffee without smiling.

In our cafe, for espresso, we were using 18g doses in a 18g VST basket. Yield was 34g and the shot was taking around 43 seconds which includes a 6 second pre-infusion in a conical burr grinder.
