Watermelon cake for the espresso. I must be suggestible as this did taste to me of the BlackStar watermelon cake. Lengthening the shot a bit by added some hot water gave something more rosewater-like and upped the acidity a bit. A lovely lick of lime acidity to the Ecuadoran batch.

Wired for Wires blend for the espresso was surprisingly good (I seem to have an inbuilt anti-blend bias). A nice mix of sweetness and acidity made this a tasty shot. Washed Columbian batch was even better, being big on berries

CM Ethiopian Heirloom pour over done in two ways: Fine grained hotter extraction gave a more tea heavy cup which tended towards dark chocolate - very tasty. Courser grained cooler extraction gave a brighter, sweeter more strawberry driven cup - even better than the first.

Dark chocolate with acidity care of the orange part of town - an excellent washed Ethiopian espresso Panama Hacienda La Esmeralda Gesha as a pour over smelled generously floral with honey notes. A buttery mouthfeel and clean white grape and apricot with some tannins in the back. Complex and delicious.

Espresso on a natural Columbian from Five Senses - sour cherry becoming more sweet strawberry - really enjoyed Batch on a natural Ethiopian from Double Tap - balanced cup with a nice orange aspect. Also grabbed some Gesha beans from Ickle (new roaster to me). Bean selection here has expanded recently, which is great.
