I agree here 100%...DJ may not toot his own horn here but he really does a great job. If you guys haven't already, I would definitely suggest giving his coffee a try. By medium roasting he allows the beans to express their true character as opposed to roasting the complex flavors out.Suzuki said:The coffee from Ristretto Roasters is terriffic - unlike several companies who exclusively offer dark roasts, Ristretto only uses a medium roast, which lets the flavours of the beans come through. While I still like a dark roast every now and again, its nice to be able to have a strong cup of coffee that still allows you taste the subtle flavours of a particular variety.
I notice that Dinder hasn't posted in this thread - likely out of a combination of modesty and the desire not to be seen as shamelessly plugging his wares. While this is admirable, I think that any coffee thread on B&B (or anywhere else for that matter) would be incomplete without a mention of Ristretto Roasters.
In case you're interested, here's a link to their website:
Great coffe at reasonable prices (not to mention a chance to support a fellow B&B member's business).
I received no compensation in any form whatsoever (and specifically didn't get any free coffee!) for this post.
This morning I am enjoying the last of my Ethiopia Harrar...so I need to place another order.
French Press for me...a couple cups in the morning and again in the afternoon or after dinner...and black.
