Probably this thread could not end with a higher note. I really liked this one. I was probably lucky, the setting of both the grinder and the espresso machine was the right one, but I got the wow factor from the first cup! Not a classic Italian espresso but neither too "fancy" for my taste. A good balance between the two styles, I think. I really like it.
Velton's Bonsai Blend. My personal favorite
Thank you for your suggestion.
It's definitely not easy to compare 12 coffees when you drink them one or more months apart from each other, so I'm not able to say which one I enjoyed the most when I tried it. Probably the ones from Etiopia. Or maybe the Panama Elida? I should try all of them again.
However, one year after my "maybe with time I will learn to like fancy espresso too" I can actually now say that, yes, I like fancy espresso too
Actually, my taste has also changed a little bit. While my preference is still for the classic Italian style espresso, I have recently replaced the coffee we regularly drink at the office with Dragonfly Crema Dolce (one of the coffees tried thanks to this thread) in place of the old italian Illy. I find Crema Dolce much more interesting.
For home I'm undecided between Crema Dolce and Bonsai Blend. I will probably alternate them.
Thank to everybody for your contributions.
