I brewed the last batch of the Tanzania Peaberry on Friday so Saturday morning I picked up a half-pound of coffee from my Buy the Cup. This week ( will it last the week ) I am drinking Papua New Guinea. This was a delightful cup. I like a light roast because I think it brings out the unique flavour of each coffee. I’ve also tweaked my brewing process. I’m using a new ration of 1000⁄64 mL of water for each gram of ground coffee. I also started paying attention to water temperature. Instead of pouring boiling water over the grinds, I now wait until the water temperature is 93.3ºC (~200ºF). Today’s coffee was brewed with 46g (~1.62oz) of ground Papua New Guinea and about 758mL (~25.6 oz) of water at 93.3ºC.
This week I am drinking Tanzania Peaberry from Buy The Cup in Rocky Hill.
Rich chocolate flavour with hints of blackcurrant, and a soft, sweet finish. Lively cup with a full body and distinguished aroma.
Today, I'm drinking Sumatra Mandheling. I get most of my coffee from Buy the Cup in Rocky Hill. I've seen the place go through at least three owners in the last twelve years. The current owner, Vitaly, has run the place for at least seven years. Over that time he's come to know my whole family and which coffees I prefer. He knows my purchasing habits so well he even reminds me when I've drunk the same thing for too long. He almost always has something interesting to share.
Earthy flavours with sweet chocolate notes.
