Roast Along Ep11 with #Barty with Josh Thompson

Posted by Bart Jawien on

This week’s Roast Along is timely and worth watching if you’re up for some good banter and a laugh. Barty and Josh catch up on the latest, roast and cup two specialty single origins, both mind-blowingly insane. 

Episode 11 is a 6 part mini-series with Josh and #Barty who have known one another for almost 10 years now, being neighbours and cycling buddies. It was a real pleasure to have Josh on the show. 

Josh is a Senior Programs & Partnerships Director at Lagardere a leading global operator specializing in travel retail. We download on all things speciality coffee, pairing for Josh's palate, discuss on-premise & retail and of course mental health mid-post-COVID. Also, we unpack specialty in a fine dining setting, and touch on the future for retail and travel industry. 

Episode 11.01 The Banter Is Outrageous, Specialty Coffee & Cafe WorkFlow

Episode 11.02 Josh Finally Finds His Coffee Palate. We Pick Two #Barty Singles

Episode 11.03 Roast the #Barty Chocolate Dominican Republic Cibao Honey

Episode 11.04 Roast the #Barty Peach Don Pepe Geisha & Chat Mental Health

Episode 11.05(a) Brew a V60 & Cup the Peach #Barty

Episode 11.05(b) Dial-in a God Shot Espresso, with the Chocolate #Barty 

We taste the Peach #Barty a washed Geisha from Don Pepe Estate in Panama and the Chocolate #Barty from the Dominican Republic Cibao Altura, a natural honey process bean.

To Josh’s surprise the limited-edition single #Barty Peach Label wasn’t what Josh expected although said it was a profile that would pair well in a fine dining setting. The Don Pepe Geisha is specifically roasted for a filter. A light roast that is smooth, well balanced with candy sweetness, watermelon, pink lady apples, apricots, peaches and pears.  

Josh a true chocoholic, to satisfy his sweet tooth our dark Chocolate #Barty Moka Bomb was hard to pass easily. A single origin is a sweet and velvety honey processed* origin that absolutely stands out from the crowd! It’s like biting into a block of 80% cocoa dark chocolate in a cup on milk. 

Josh: ‘I don’t like milk in my coffee but that’s like a dark chocolate milkshake’ 

Cibao is located along the northern shores of the Caribbean Sea, where some of the country’s finest coffees are grown. 

All our profiles are single-origins you can find in our online coffee store.

#Barty​ has spent months perfecting these roast profiles with love. It’s his little way to continue to give back, pay it forward, and get to our original target of $110K for

All orders are made to order from our very own micro-roastery in Darlinghurst.
