I'm writing this in the scarce hope that someone of AGUST coffee company will pass thru and read this post.
I bought their Sidamo single origin twice.
First time I wasted half bag to dial in the machine (was among the first coffees I was grinding by myself). The second half of the bag was some outer world experience. The best of the best, right at my home!
This lasted as much as 125 grams can last, really too little. I've bought half of their catalogue, one bag each type, but nothing stood up that one.
I've recently made another order, ordering the other half of the catalogue, including another Sidamo bag, of course.
I've noticed immediately how the beans were less roasted than before (never seen a so light roast actually) and the Apollo made a good effort eating them. This time the taste was SOUR (bleh!) just like lead acid battery juice could be
I've tried to grind finer and finer up to complete choke, nothing to do, at the fine end it just tastes dark, bitter and SOUR like hell.
Now hear me please, if you are happy with this so called third wave junk ok, I could not care less. But why on earth you write "medium roast" on bags when this barely saw the roasting drum interiors?
Thanks God here is upper north Italy, and I have all the country to dig into, as beans go progressively darker as I buy south stuff.
The point is that you have some sent-by-god beans and you are ruining them for the posh-ness sake only.
