Never heard of iron bean? May have to pick up a bag. How does it compare to black rifle in taste?
Iron Bean might be a step up. However, Black Rifle AK Espresso is hard to beat. They seem to be geared for super dark roast at BRCC.
1975 Puma 941 and restock
That is quite the pile of coffee!! Excellent in fact!
I'm going to try Iron Bean-Cast Iron soon...
"Mono Knows Coffee"
Seriously, several year ago Monofletch talked about Joe Bean
ETHIOPIA GELANA ABAYA. It was the best Ethiopian I've ever had. Its still in my favorites list.
I ordered some Cast Iron and some Rage to try out
@Ryan Thompson swears by the Fierce. Cast Iron is my favorite
I love all of the Iron Bean coffee. I just got a 5lb bag of Fierce because I got a deal. I’m a sucker for deal!
I will just say; I don't need my coffee to grow hair on normally hairless body parts.
I like a medium roast.
I tried the Kona Blend from Costco this evening with friends who came to the house for dinner. We all enjoyed it and for $12 for two lbs of beans, not a bad deal. I sent our friends home with a ziplock with half of my Kona stash. What are friends for, anyway?
Roasted some Yemen Mocha Ishmaili this morning, something I've been meaning to do for a long time.
Now I know what genuine Mocha tastes like! It is a very satisfying cup of coffee. Waves of endorphins go through your body after every sip, LOL.
Right out of the roaster (right before 2C) it actually tastes more like cocoa than coffee. A bit winey, and a light but very detectable acidity, but not much fruitiness. After resting a few days some more of the coffee flavor should develop.
Sounds good..I like bittersweet chocolate. When I was young and didn't have to watch my weight, I loved hot chocolate and coffee.
I just signed in to Iron bean.
Rage Against the Dying of the Light
Drink From the Skull of Your Enemy
I can' wait!
LOL, then you might not like it. It's more like SWEET chocolate.
Imagining back when coffee first started going global and people started trying coffee from places other than Mocha...
"What's wrong with this coffee, it's not sweet!"
"Try putting some sugar in it and see if that makes it taste right."
"That's better but it is still missing something. I doesn't have that chocolaty taste."
"Try putting some cocoa powder in it."
"Now it's starting to taste right."
Just found this thread thanks to @Monofletch
heard there are swaps a couple times a year and I am in for that
Currently brewing costco ground on the regular AM, specialty coffees for treats, company, and the 9PM cup.
@boss_crew ~We need more people in our swaps. There is a lot of info in this thread!
Welcome to the madness, @boss_crew !
Indeed. Creeping up on 4k posts and over 300k views.
iron bean order showed up today - sipping some cast iron as I type.
Started carrying this Grip from the secret Santa swap. Ordered some aftermarket scales for it and trying to decide if I should switch to a deep carry clip instead.
It’s always nice when you “personalize” a knife. If you like the knife you will carry it more.
Cast Iron and a Spydie Chef!
My wife swears the Costa Rican coffee has the strongest chocolate notes. Some of those coffees if you add a tiny bit of cream and sugar the chocolate notes are even stronger.
I had some Chromatic Honduran that Spyderphreak sent me and it was super chocolaty! It is in my top 3 all time favorites!!
