'When I taste this coffee, I'm struck by it's intensity and boldness. It's smooth, like fudge with a hint of bitterness like in dark chocolate. Don't go thinking this is a dark roast though, it's not!'
If you'd like to know about how the No.9 Roast came about, head over to our blog post here.
This is really solid, well-balanced coffee that is super easy to brew and it's been designed specifically for espresso - a first for us! The roast is just a tad more developed than is usual for us (but still no oil on the beans or anything like that - yuk!) and it's just perfect for those of you that like just that little bit more intensity and boldness in the cup. It tastes amazing in espresso-based drinks as frequenters of Cafe No.9 in Nether Edge, Sheffield will no doubt tell you.
You can find out more about the lot itself here.

No. 9 Roast
Hits all the yummy areas and is roasted just right. You may have to reduce your grind a little finer from say Rocko, but it’s worth the effort if you have manual adjustment. If you have a programmable grinder, then dial in one setting for this one.
Thanks for leaving a review Ian and great to hear you are enjoying the No.9 Roast!
Coffee is Christmas present for my son so not able to comment yet.
It tastes like how coffee should....I know such a silly thing to say, but it's a very safe, very straight forward honest cup of coffee as an espresso based drink. No fancy flavour notes just a lovely smooth cup of coffee.
I'm finding 17g in and 36g out over 20-25 seconds best personally - which is significantly less than the usual 28-32 seconds.
I'll be making this my regular morning coffee bean for a while.
