Cafe Domestique makes an Ube latte that goes perfectly with the sweetness of the espresso. It’s also purple which is cool as hell

Skipped the last pour because I only used 22g. I really love this roast. Nice tasting notes and I have the flow rate of my pours dialed in for this recipe which might be contributing as well.

Morning emails on a dark a rainy day.

Dialing this roast in. Certainly the best brew so far, still feeling over extracted a bit.

Went on an afternoon walk. Weather in Texas is getting deliciously muggy.

I managed to brew this cup better today. @ArcticusTech is right, recipe to roast association needs to be much clearer. I modified Good Drip for this roast specifically but wouldn’t normally. Would love to be able to search by roast in the future to more likely find a good recipe on the first try before half the bag is gone.

Had to move to 2A on the grinder, still probably gotta go finer because shot was :22, would like it to get to the :32 mark.

That said, this roast is amazing in a cappuccino. Nice and strong coffee flavor fighting the milk.

Really love this roast for cappuccinos. Tried an oat milk version today with Oatley. Pretty good.
