Nicaraguan Limoncillo

I went to order some of this from Steve yesterday and it seems to be all gone. :cry: Steve if you're reading this I don't suppose you have a secret stash you'd be willing to sell to me? :wink: Or if anyone else knows where I might get some I'd be very grateful, it sounded delicious.

Steve blogged that he's out, but I have seen it last week at Twodays roastery in Bristol. Haven't tried it, though, and twodays was already having a sale on it.

google has it here, it's in

135 St.Michaels Hill
Bristol, BS2 8BS, United Kingdom
+44 117 929 9191‎

But be aware it's quite up the hill, to me it seemed the steepest of all hills in Bristol ;)

Thanks very much! I'll ask my mum to take a look next time she's up that way, maybe they'll have some left.

As a bizarre sidenote, searching for "twodays" or "twodays, bristol" on uk google maps comes up with nothing, but on the german one they come up no problems. :? Reminds me of back in the day I used to check train timetables on the german rail travel site because their uk timetables were more up-to-date than our own websites like national rail or thetrainline!

Well I'm keeping myself busy with the monsoon malabar and CoE espresso blend at the moment, and I'm sure there will be enough other varieties to keep me busy until some more limoncillo becomes available. :mrgreen:

None left at twodays, but instead they sold me something "similar" which I won't find out about until it arrives here... I hope the Curse of Limoncillo doesn't strike and transform it into nescafe in the post.

It turns out they've sent me the CoE El Portillo (at a price about 50% higher than Steves!), which doesn't *sound* that similar but I've tried neither and this one still smells pretty great, so I'm happy enough. :mrgreen:
