Recognisable by its distinctive barking sound, in contrast to the more common meow.

True. Interestingly enough, however, he has really learned to purr, picking it up presumably from his step brothers. It isn't exactly the same sound, but the best he can imitate and he does it when we pet him. :D

I decided I needed a bit of a change so I roasted some Monsooned Malabar. That was a change!

That is OK, the dog does not need to bark. There are enough people around here who are barking already. :shock: :shock: :wink: :roll: :D

Somewhat amusingly, given comments regarding "true Italian roasts", a Hasbean roast was recently used to win the Italian Barista Championship!

I am not at all surprised, congratulations Steve. Perhaps we can look forward to the day when people think of a Hasbean roast as a "true Italian roasts". :D

I'll see if I can find out what the coffee used was.
I believe there are 5 people using Hasbean roasts for the UKBC next week.
