Taste notes - Candy floss, peach and pink lemonade
Some of these notes descriptions are meaningless IMO - Candy floss and pink … Why bother mentioning Candy Floss when their description suggests peach and lemonade?
I am basically expecting a mild to moderate acidity (peach / lemon) and peach flavour.
Brewed 16g and 248.1g water in (a few g more than intended) lasting 3:58 mins.
I get a clean light-strength coffee. I get peach and lemon finish (this is more of a slightly tart after taste).
They called it as a very light roast. This isn’t. I will put it between medium light and medium and generously medium light.
The second picture is ground taken under white light and the third in natural light.
I am disappointed with this coffee. It’s meh. I think I should have only bought the Don Pancho and not this after @Cuprajake posted his views.
They have written it makes a stunning pour over filter. I am scratching my hair searching to find the stunning cup that has gone walking!
I will give only 1 out of max 5. Thank god, I did not buy a KG. I feel like revising up the Django’s Mexican Decaf score to at least 4 out of 5.
I will re-dial tightening the grind and up dosing from 64.4g/l to 70g/l. I am not expecting miracles.
