Saturday October 1st will see the return of comedy. Tickets are $20, and all the details can be seen on our events page here:
And then on Wednesday October 5th we’ll be conducting a workshop to discuss coffee flavour profiles.
Excitement here. Cupping a final roast profile on a new coffee, and this one is special.
It’s from El Salvador, but… it’s a Natural Process, so more interest is present than the origin alone would suggest.
Developed as part of the HiU Coffee Program this coffee comes from the farm (Finca) La Concordia.
It a Bourbon, and it’s a Natural Process, so the complexity is understandable. Here’s what we’re getting:
Starting: Floral aromas, with savoury notes of nutmeg over honey
First Sip: Sweet Red Apple, Hickory, smooth mouth feel
The Finish: Clean citrus, with hints of cranberry and and spiced cherry
As it cools: The sweetness develops, predominantly as honey, but with a broad spectrum of fruit tones
As this is a very limited release we’re packaging in 12 oz bags. This is roasted today, and will be available into the weekend.
America’s Test Kitchen suggests the Bonavita BV1800TH may be the best buy for an auto-drip maker.
We agree. Their review is a little scant on details, but hits the key points. It’s a shame they don’t test the Behmor Brazen, but it’s not as mainstream as the makers they’re advising for / against.
We sell the Bonavita unit. No it won’t fit in a stocking.
Hot off the presses. Gift Cards. Any denomination. These are like monopoly money for coffee nerds.
A new espresso – Golden Arrow. After some careful experiments we have a blend we’re very proud of, and we’ve named it Golden Arrow.
This is a seriously smooth and sweet espresso, with a central note of apricots. Because of the central note, it holds well with milk too, and Misto Rubatos are stellar.
We’ll have this on the grinder for some time to come (we’re into successive roasts) and beyond enjoying a cup it’s available by the bag.
