I've come to realise I know 'not a lot' about beans!
I generally buy Italian blend/roast beans from the Supermarket. As I prefer strong coffee, I usually look for strength 5 for example.
I notice the majority of beans on sites like Rave etc, are medium roast.
If you liked strong coffee, would...
OK, I've got a hand burr grinder and two types of beans on the go at the moment. The colour of both bean types is fairly dark but I seem to feel that one type of bean grinds easier than the other?
What exactly could that mean? The bean roasting level or perhaps the age of the beans?
