"Official" tasting notes and background information.
Small beans, hinting at higher elevation or dryness. I am getting only the slightest hint of coffee off of it.
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.
As with the beans, there is no discerning aroma coming from the brewed coffee. It has a brown/orangey tone to it.
The first sip gives me the bitterness of dark chocolate with a tiny hint of sweetness, but not really a whole lot more. It is a bit underwhelming I admit.
As it cools the aromas balance out a bit more, with the bitterness taking a bit of a back seat and the sweetness coming a bit more forward.
Brewing Method French Press
Much like with the AeroPress I am not really getting any aroma of the brew. Maybe my nose is stuffed?
Nope, still no smell.
Taste profile is pretty much on par with what I got out of the AeroPress, but with a hint of acidity at the tail.
