Axil Coffee - PELÉ Espresso Blend
Had high hopes for this hoping it would be similar to another one of my favourites but was left disappointed. No matter what dose or grind size I tried, all I got was burnt tasting coffee. The beans looked quite dark so I'm not sure if it's a dark roast which was possibly over roasted? I love dark roast, never had one taste burnt though!
Dropping the dose down to 18-18.3g made it drinkable but anything above that just tasted burnt. Unfortunately had no fruity kick whatsoever. I feel like I probably did something wrong so I'm giving it 3 stars instead of 1. If anyone has success with this please review it, I'll check back in at a later date.
Sorry to hear you had such a bad time with coffee :(
Just out of interest, were you comparing it to Raspberry Candy?
