We're not talking about fruitiness or huge complexity with this coffee - and the acidity is tame - but where it really delivers is in the smooth, buttery body and the huge sweetness coming from those chocolate and caramel notes.

Nicest coffee I've tried so far, for my tastes anyway.
Those of you who know foundry well will be aware that they often have some truly amazing flavours. Cherry cola, raspberry, Cointreau to name a few. This is finally a coffee with classic flavours that tastes of 'coffee'. Well done Lee! A surprise. Coffee! It is all the things that this coffee does not but could have tasted of which makes it so deliciously moorish. There is a wonderful big creamy nutty dark chocolate flavour with the slightest dash of acidity. What more do you really need? I think it is pretty easy to get good results from espresso and it is brilliant with milk. Might lack complexity as a filter but I have not tried it.
Full marks. Just don't stop importing this one.
As the old advert used to say "everyone's a fruit and nutcase..." and that applies to these beans. Brewed via the V60 it reminds me of a Cadburys fruit and nut bar. You get a lovely smooth milk chocolatey taste with a lovery raisin finish. As the drink cools you also get that hint of caramel sweetness. Yet another great bean roasted experty by Foundry (to be honest, never really had a dud one) that hits all the smooooooth taste notes. 10/10 again!!
