    Massdrop has the 1L version for $55 right now ($71 on Amazon currently). Takes a couple weeks to ship usually though.

    I need a break from the dark/nutty/chocolatey brews I've been having.


    What's the most jammy/bright/cliched third-wave style you can think of? Either specific coffees or just a roaster recommendation.

    Heart Coffee in Portland is known for their light roasts.

    I find wet process coffees to have that jammy quality.

    I'm currently drinking Heart's 'Colombia La Esmeralda' and it is fantastic.

    Heart is great. Maybe also try Roseline and Coava?

    Just sharing my daily kit at work, very happy with this and being on a routine to try a new bag every week.

    Also hot tip for those interested, check out your local restaurant auctions, especially if you live in a major city. I'm not looking at this time since I don't anticipate having the space in my apartment but my local auction had a dual group head espresso machine sell for sub 200.

    Bright? Lightly roasted Central American, Kenyan, or wet-process Ethiopian. I'm not sure that style of roasting will give you jammy, which I associate more with dry- or natural-process coffee. A dry-process Ethiopian will usually give you strong ripe blueberry or strawberry flavors.

    I've been drinking Barrington's Aricha over the last week, and it might be right up your alley. Starbucks Reserve has a Hawaiian Ka'u right now that has really strong caramel flavors, but it has a noticeable roast flavor too, which may turn you off.

    That's been my work setup for the last 9 years. It's a good setup.

    Had the former a few months ago really good stuff.

    Had a cup of the latter today but for me it was like drinking a bouquet of flowers. Really nice.
