"Official" tasting notes and background information.

The Beans

Coffee Chronicles 018 - The Beans

Once again I get nothing off of the beans themselves. I am starting to question my nose.

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, I do not really get any aroma off of the brew itself.

The first sip does give a citrus / orange note with some follow through creaminess. This is surprisingly refreshing, much like yesterday. A very pleasant, and surprisingly refreshing morning cup.

Rating: 4.6/5

Brewing Method AeroPress over Ice

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.

Coffee Chronicles 018 - AeroPress over Ice

After the great success yesterday I decided to give the "over ice" another shot (pun intended).

Much like yesterday it does seem to bring out more sweetness, at least as an aroma before sipping.

Taste wise, interestingly enough, it produces much more bitter notes forward, with some sweetness coming through after. It is not quite as refreshing as yesterdays, but still rather pleasant.

I think for this one I prefer the hot method more.
