I wasn't! My last coffee was roasted in New Zealand!
I didn't tip at Per Se either.

The small print on the back of the Wendelboe's bag says best to use within 3 weeks of roast date.

We too, for about a week.

 

Again, I like Grumpy, and a Blue Bottle just opened on Clinton St., so I probably will give their beans a try,

their single origin beans are a lot better than their blends.

the espresso drinks at the park slope location are extremely inconsistent.

Try Joe Pro, Voyager, or Black Fox?

 

Joe Pro had a couple of their small lot bags retail with a March 20th roast date.

 

Voyager is much more likely to have honey or natural process beans, though.

 

Black Fox will never have naturals.

Blue Bottle's?  

 

Would the inconsistency at the Park Slope location have more to do with the people making your espresso than the beans?

 

I buy single origins mostly for pour over, but find I like some blends more when using Silvia for espresso.

So here I am, still waiting for Aprils' beans.

 

taion's tip about Joe Pro is a good one. I bought beans last month that were quite nice.

Good to know. I was going to post here.

Meanwhile, the Collected Coffee for the month is a 90-point Honduras coffee that was ranked 4 in last year's Cup of Excellence there: https://www.alliance...rogram/2016-05/

I was looking at coffee subscriptions for my girlfriend and would have bought into collected coffee, but without precise instruments or extensive brewing experience it seemed unlikely that we would achieve flavors like "white peach, frangipane, limoncello" ––maybe I was wrong.

Well they come with a precise brew guide

Plus they offer one-on-one coaching either in person or via Skype for fine-tuning your coffee.

n.b. this coffee is quite special (it's extremely dense) and the instructions above are way way off for most coffees even most CoE coffees so don't follow them unless you're making this coffee, which you probably aren't
