WELL. My notes say tenuous / possible / might-be 2nd, so veryvery early (possibly the first) second crack; or possibly slightly before.

Thoughts?


Ok, don't give up on the Huila just yet. Reduce the batch to 200g and take the Huila to Rolling 2nd i.e. very rapid machine-gun 2nd. Spread the roasted beans out on a sheet of paper for about 4 hours. After 2 days, pull a 15.5g double, but stop the shot at between 1.5 fl oz and 1.7 fl oz (including crema) and let us know what it's like.

Thank you, Bertie - but I'm sorry to say it's too late...

They were *ahem* permanently filed... In part because I've got some decaffs I'm absolutely loving, and'd tried too many times (with too many different bits of kit) with the Huila. I think it died a death by 1,000 papercuts in my graceless hands! If Steve gets some more in at some point, I might get a small bag n try your suggestion :)

Cakey: :P :D
