Sorry I meant I don't really know what that whole 'waves' thing means in real world terms...! But yeah, I'm Italian and grew up in Italy, so I'm sure my taste is probably much more 'traditional' or old school than that of others 🙂 All jokes aside, it really does come down to individual taste, much like some people sweat by raspberry/bubblegum stouts etc and some would never drink a beer that isn't a lukewarm and only slightly bubbly bitter.
In other news, I'm hoping my 1Zpresso JX Pro might arrive this weekend and the coffee stock is starting to run low, so hopefully I'll get to pick up a nice bag of beans just in time! Will probably trek uphill to W Martyn in Muswell Hill, I've enjoyed their espresso blends and always come cheaper than other roasters. My only issue with them has been that when I've bough pre-ground for espresso they were too coarse and the shots ran too quickly, but that won't be an issue once the JX is in 👍
