My Bean Box
This month I received a Latin American Coffee Sampler delivered right to my front door. Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE COFFEE.
What I got in my Bean Box
- Velton’s Coffee– this roasting company roasts and hand blends their beans in small batches. The Mexico Nayarita is medium roast with milk chocalte and berry flavors.
- Seattle Coffee Works~ Pike Place Market, Seatle Coffee Works roasts with an eye towards transparencybetween farm and café. The Guatemala Rosma is bold, sweet and flavors of honey, caamel and green apple- oh yeah!
- Broadcast Coffee Roasters~ This is direct trade offering. Columbia Narino is a sunny roast with flavors of apricot, honey, and dark chocolate.
- Fonte Coffee Roaster~ Roasting in Seattle from 1992 Fonte is a local favorite and in luxury hotels. The Brazil Blaxadao Peaberry is sophisticated, bold, and flavors od cherry liqueur and tamarind.
Yes, these all sound pretty fancy, but they are all so smooth and packed with unique flavors that a coffee lover is impressed and loves.
Enjoy Your Cup:
- Smell it ALL- the beans, ground, and then the brew! You will savor all the different stages by smell.
- Let the coffee cool for a few minutes allow the coffee to marinate then you can enjoy a big sip.
- Make sure to taste all the different flavors and then savor. I love to sit at the table in the morning with my coffee and notebook then I write.
- If you are still using a paper filter make sure you wet the filter first, it will eliminate that aper taste.
- Grind the beans right before you brew
- Use water ar 200-205- 4 minutes after a boil.
- Burr Grinder is better than blade or blender.
- Start with 1-2 tsp of coffee for every 6 oz of water.
