+Hannes Lilliefeldt The brewing temp is very different to the extraction temp as the biggest thing that cools down the coffee is the the ground coffee. Then the porta filter, the fresh air and temp of the cups have a significant affect on the temp as the amount of liquid is so small.
New planet bean "stellar" espresso. Roasted right here locally in Guelph Ontario. This is my second term purchasing this new roast... And so far it seems consistent and really tasty. I compare it to Social Coffee and tea Daily Espresso. Worth checking out if you live in Ontario.
Depends on what you are making... Espresso, or a simple pour over... Grind matters more for some techniques than others. For my typical morning cup, which I do a manual pour over for, bean quality is the number one criteria. It's not that the other stuff doesn't matter, I just don't think anything is more important.
A couple months ago my cousin brought me Juan Valdez Cafe from Colombia. Now, I found a place where they sell it here in New York. For whomever has had this brand, what's your favorite kind of coffee? Good morning Wednesday!
I cannot say enough about the Social Coffee and Tea Peoples Daily. I want to be their personal salesman. Have been drinking this blend in cappuccinos and straight up espresso for about 6months now. It stays consistent and I keep trying other blends and coffee from other roasters but keep coming back to this. Try it. I dare you.. :)
Interesting coffee fact shared in our latest blog... "Then my boss explained to me that some people like coffee hotter than recommended for many reasons, but the one that stuck with me was the high numbers of medications that affect the temperature of the mouth and therefore people prefer coffee hotter than usual (without realising). So ever since that day I would never take it to heart if someone complained about my coffee temperature."
