    I had what tasted like burnt coffee recently and couldn’t finish my espresso it was that bad. I was talking to another barista a few days afterwards because I couldn’t understand how the coffee could be so bad and he told me that if the coffee is left sitting in the grouphead before the coffee is made this can led to the coffee tasting burnt even though it isn’t. However, this doesn’t sound like your problem – thank goodness we have a number of very good coffee roasters here in Hawke’s Bay and equally good barista’s – usually – it’s not often I can’t drink a coffee!

      I know Rachel… It was very disappointing because almost everything else was lovely! I’m glad you have access to good coffee! Liz x

    I wonder is it ultimately the bean that makes the good coffee, or can a super barista turn a crappy bean into a magical cuppa. Not a fan of bellaroma either. BUT…. I’d take it over instant, or a fast food coffee. LOL!
