Cavalier 1.0 Washed Kenyan filter roast for the espresso gave a lighter shot with some definite raspberry was a dash of acidity thrown in for good measure. The acidity within the takeaway batch was more evident than in the spro. The pair of cups were a Sunday highlight.
Nicaraguan espresso had a bit of berries up front but did bitter somewhat on the aftertaste. Second espresso on a Costa Rican had an intriguing fermented carmel that gained a bit of acidity on cooling - real nice. Filter on a washed Columbian Gesha had a buttery mouthfeel, a bit of blackcurrant, some citrus acidity and all round was a complex tasty number.

Artificer Ethiopian espresso had that caramelised fruit feel - nice. Same beans for the batch worked really nicely with a balanced fruity cup. First visit after a couple of recommendations from knowledgeable baristas I like the layout and vibe.

Anaerobic fermentation for the Columbian espresso came a slightly tighter shot and so generously crema’ed. The syrupy textured worked well with the rich cacao nibs stone fruit concoction - real good. Carbonic Masceration for the Kenyan filter made me think pineapples then with cooling pears - also liked this a lot
