It's that time of month again!

Those of us with LM Home subscriptions will be receiving this month's delivery (Five Elephant Finca) very soon. In an effort to get a bean catalog going, we figured we would start individual bean threads to post thoughts, recipes, ratios, etc for not only LM subscribers but for anyone who has tried or wants to try the specific coffee.

For this month, LM/Five Elephant recommends the following ratio:

Normale: 1:2 - 1:2.4

In: 18g

Out: 40 - 48g

Time: 25 - 31 seconds (harder water = less time)

Pressure: 9 bars

Temperature: 200.3 - 203.9 F

TDS: 8.5 - 10

Extraction %: 19-21

Post up your results so we can all learn from each other. Merry Christmas.

It is not clear about their selection process. I spoke with one of the subscription roasters recently who mentioned that LM makes the selection of which bean to go out to subscribers. I remember when the Panther from Miami was sent out and a different roaster was on tap at the Cafe. Five Elephant (IIRC) has not yet had their residency. Maybe LM likes this coffee for subscribers - for whatever reason - and Onda Origins will be represented another time. (all conjecture here)
