Excellent service

My first purchase was for green coffee but i am using a Rotisserie style device and could not get the roast accuracy i was looking for so i purchased a medium roast and i was shocked at just how fantastic the results were i will never look back at any other method, I use a Rok grinder and a Hario syphon.

Ok with filter; problem with espresso

These beans are jamming my grinder (Sage Smart Grinder Pro) when grinding for espresso. No problem using for filter coffee and grinding at 45 (lower is finer.) But for espresso (18g coffee in for 36g out) a very fine grind is required to avoid a sour under extraction, namely setting 4 on the grinder, -nearly at it's limit. I grind my normal beans at about 17 for espresso. These beans caused the grinder to jam, with the clutch clicking and no grinding. I had to coursen the grind to release. There seems to be what looks like husk in the cracks of the beans, which is visible in the courser filter grind as a distinctly lighter shade of particles. This does not seem right. The taste of both the filter and espresso coffee is ok, but I clearly can't use this for espresso. I would be very interested in hearing Redber's view on this.
