Barismo - Linnaean St Espresso

Postby espressomattic » Wed Apr 29, 2009 2:55 am


I was kindly gievn half a bag by Rocket today of this blend:

65% Brazil Moreninha Formosa
25% Costa Rican Las Lajas
10% Kenyan Ichimara

Maple, Caramel and Cocoa Honey, thick, gloopy messy coffee. Sweet sweet sweet. I don't usually swear, but Fucking Hell...this was just bloody awesome.

Shots were brewed at the cooler end at about 198 Deg F. The result was just amazing. The guys over in MA really are lucky with these guys. If you can, order some just to try this. I want to have more, but sadly I am coffee'ed out after a visit to Rocket (Bordering on our ledgendary Session Mark!).

Good grief .... did you drive right round the island before you realised you had even left? ;) :P. Sounds like you had a ball mate.

Brought back a bag of the Kenya Kiandu from Barismo after a recent trip to NYC/Boston.

Outsanding cup in the siphon. Never quite got Kenyan coffees before, but they and this one especially really seem to shine in the siphon.
