    No need to be sorry... your tasted buds are your taste buds. Out of curiosity - how are you making the espresso and how much are you using?

    Hi Musicphan, I make a doppio on my Breville Barista Express, well dialed in. Also tried that blend as a double with water to make it a longo or Americano, but no joy, just too sour for me. MIGHT be good with another brew method, probably would make a tasty cold brew. But that is not what I am looking for.
    Thanks,
    God Bless,
    Wayne

    Sounds good... sourness is usually a sign of over extraction (or not using enough coffee) which is why I asked. But if your machine is dialed in its just not your preferred flavor profile.
