Best coffee I have tried in a long time. Absolutely incredible!
I have developed a real fondness for this bean and have now ordered it multiple times (and am quite sad its gone). Tasting notes are pretty spot on - a light sweetness with just the right amount of lime funkyness in the finish. The most suprising thing about this bean, though is how good it is in every single method of brewing - good in aeropress, good as espresso, good as long black, good in milk (cuts through beautifully). Really enjoyed this one, possibly one of my beans of the year.
The coffee is good Ethiopian naturals process example. However at that harvest the taste is not so specific strawberry as it was previous year. It is more about dried orange and dark chockolate. Obviously it is only my personal taste remark. I used to use it for espresso (extraction of 18g coffee to 38g in cup for 33-34s with approx 6s preinfusion on Bezzera Strega machine, or 15g of coffee to 150g in cup, 2,5 minutes extr action time, as I use aeropress brewing method). So the coffee is about 4,5 points out of five. Anyway the roasters are done good job, because the full potential of coffee beans is probably achieved. Thanks!
This is a lovely Kenyan, the orange acidity makes it like a chocolate orange but a chocolate orange that has been on the Cointreau and got a bit rowdy. Once the orange has faded your a left with a really lovely smooth sweet aftertaste. This for me is a great breakfast coffee!
Well balanced with some interesting flavours - hope the stock lasts!
The first time I tasted this coffee was a game changer, and each brew since has been a complete pleasure.
Absolutely delicious coffee! Clean, fresh taste with those floral notes making every sip an adventure!
Title says it all, always nice to drink an old favourite.
Just cracked open at 7 days rest and its already superb. Lovely capp went down all too quickly and as usual with the good stuff wanted another but managed to restrain myself.. could this turn out as good as the Rianjangi..!?
Wow, what can I say, the flavour profile is awesome. It's acidity has quite a bite that is really vibrant and refreshing.
It might seem a waste to some, but I just love these fruity ones in an iced coffee. Two spoons of this in the aeropress with maybe 20ml of water, pressed onto ice, poured into an ice filled glass. Wow!
Just had my 1st taste of this in a flat white after resting for a week. 18g -> 40g in 40s. Really nice and fruity, now going to tweak the recipe to see if I can get any more out of it!
I shopped around for an electric grinder after getting fed up with a hand grinder. Grinders seem to range from £20 - £2,000 and for my needs this seemed to fit the bill at a mid-range level. I've been using it for a week now and cannot complain. It grinds coffee nice and evenly - I had to play with timings a little to get the amount I need but it's a lot less guesswork than with my hand grinder. Anyway, in the morning I can press a button and get a coffee with a lot less effort. Thanks, Foundry for the recommendation and the free Ethiopian coffee that came with it is delicious.
Very nice brew. Stronger taste than I was expecting but nice acidic balance. Very nice.
This is so great. Amazing blackcurrant flavour and balancing sweetness that is addictive. I've been mainly making it in a V60 and it is truly wonderful!
1:16 in a V60 works amazingly well. Can't get enough of it, I just keep ordering these same beans.
Kenya peaberry varieties never let me down in the past and this one (when I get it right) comes with both citrus and dark fruits flavours
There is a good amount of brightness in keeping with Kenyan coffee and a healthy amount of sweetness to balance that out.
Can't wait for these guy's recommended recipe to test it out!
This is one of the best decaff coffees Ihave ever had. Lovely and smooth not a hint of bitterness.
It's like you've squeezed a whole lime into your cup. As a flat white it's like the best chocolate lime sweet you've ever had. If you like juicy, bright, citrus flavour, I'm sure you'll love this too.
Bought as I needed a bit of a kick to my coffee, the flavor profile sounded good. Absolutely blown away. RECOMMENDED.
Thanks guys, this one is truly beautiful.
Lovely and delicate, which leaves your palate clean.
My mum loves this and she hates coffee!!
Delicious! Everything you’d want from a natural Ethiopian roasted just right :)
Typical Guji Highland natural with great dark fruits flavour and great aftertaste
If you never tried this before then buy some right now.
As espresso, just enjoy. With milk it has the strength of flavour to cut through
Among the very best for me
I keep coming back to this highly consistent roast from Foundry. Complex and balanced flavours and a perfect sweetness. Works very well with an Aeropress.
Nicest coffee I've tried so far, for my tastes anyway.
Vanilla on the nose, ripe fruit sweetness and pleasantly bright
Ending with a lot of chocolate that lasts
Now I just need to figure out the figs and the grind size...
I think this coffee has got a lot better as it’s got slightly older (about 3 wks after roast date) it’s matured into a really delicious and complex taste. I got burnt sugar and caramel in a V60 with a clean, slightly acid aftertaste. A truly fine coffee - if you can keep it long enough to appreciate it fully!!
Good coffee, the taste profile suits mostly to aeropress brew. However it is good coffee on espresso too: notes of baking cake together with kind acidity and milk chocolate like taste on finish... Good service and good coffee! I like the way they roast coffee. Thanks Foundry.
This is my favourite coffee to date. Even in my inexpert hands it's bursting with the flavour of cherries and raisins. I love it.
I am a big fan of Finca San Francisco (the "cherry cola bottle sweets", which is not available at the moment- will we have it back?). But ... do we care if we have such a wonderful coffee like Gatare?
On a different topic - I do like your new cheaper postage, new packaging (which fits through a letterbox) and simpler coffee labelling. Well done!
Very accommodating and sent the bag that was down for home delivery originally to the shop at my request and ground to aeropress when I arrived. Also had another bag delivered to the shop at the same time (1kg Arcangel) and was given a free coffee. Great quality service.
Will be ordering again good service as always anneka
This can be a complex little espresso or a cracker of a flat white that lingers. For a natural processed coffee it really is well balanced, I know this may sound a negative but you enjoy the fullness of the flavours more with nothing over the top that you tend to get with most naturals and this is one of my fave coffees at the moment because of this. Foundry have created another cracking coffee.
Really enjoy this blend. It’s my first time purchase from Foundry and it definately wont be my last.
I don't even bother ordering from anyone else but Foundry now. The coffee is always so good.
Another great coffee from Foundry. Super sweet with big fruit notes!
I purchased the Mutovu - Rwanda beans recently and they were fantastic - really delicious and arrived swiftly. Would recommend!
Same as ever - Foundry never let me down.
