"Official" tasting notes and background information.

Brewing Method AeroPress

I am following James Hoffman's "The Ultimate AeroPress Technique". 11 grams of coffee and 200 grams of water. Steep 2 minutes, then swirl and let settle for 30 seconds before fully pressing it through.

I have to say my taste buds fail me here. It is a very subtle flavour with nothing really jumping out to me. "Clean" would be a good way to describe it.

Unlike yesterday, I also did not get a huge whiff right when opening package which continues for me with the actual tasting. At the very end I get some sweetness come through, but overall it's not really a standout for me.

Rating: 4/5

Brewing Method Chemex

I am using the standard Chemes brewing method with a paper filter. 13 grams of coffee, with 221 grams of water.

I found in the past that a Chemex with filter papers is really good in removing excessive bitterness from the brew. In the case of this one, it actually does manage to make an already light coffee even a bit lighter. The sweet end note seems to disappear. Overall I prefer the AeroPress preparation.
