Coffee Morning

June 1, 2007

I’ve the day off today so I’ve finally had a chance to give the Lovell Rosters beans a go. Here are some piccys. The demi cup was the second shot I pulled and is probably the best and darkest crema I’ve ever seen come out of my machine – I turned it into a macchiato. The bean has a great aroma and a solid taste with some lingering bitterness (it’s a fairly dark roast). I like it, well done J & A!


Lovell Roasters

May 25, 2007

I’ve ordered some Lovell Roaster’s Brazil / Ethiopian Blend from the Lovell boys (John & Aido) who’s little enterprise is slowly taking off. They’re blending and roasting at home – with a bread maker I think – after buying sacks of single origin green beans from all over. I tried their decaf at Scotty’s (also a Lovell) a week ago and was quite impressed with it (and at his skills on the machine).

Just found their blog here. Check it out. Cool photos like the one at left which has the caption “Two ways to live” 🙂

I’ll you you know how the bean goes down!
