Bitter old roast
16 May 2018
Very sad to take delivery of what I hoped would be even better than the red lavazza bean. As an espresso aficianado of many years, I take great care in testing the exact grind required to maximise flavour and crema because every roast varies slightly.
However, compared to the red/silver lavazza blend, I could no achieve a smooth espresso despite playing with exprssion times and grinds. It remains bitter, not smooth which I hope can only be down to being roasted over 3 months ago.
Never had this problem before and sadly I will be consigning this batch to the wastebin.
