  • What are you drinking right now

    With the first sub 20 degree day here I dusted off the vacpot and started enjoying some brewed coffee. My usual espresso favorites will take a break as I explore the winter coffees. This got me thinking, what are we all drinking?

    Im drinking a blend of Panama Gran De Val and Brazil Daterra Sweet Collection. The Brazil is roasted to the start of 2nd and the Panama just into 2nd, blended 50/50. I brewed it through my vac-pot this arvo and it is fantastic. This brew method really highlights the smooth velvety texture of this blend. With just a touch of milk this hot cup has sweet milk chocolate flavours and smooth peanut buttery undertones. As it cools (which is some time as I have a 400ml coffee cup) the milk chocolate deepens into more of a rich, bitter, cocoa note that intensifies and the nutty flavour swings from peanut to hazelnut and becomes more subtle. My last sip could be cocoa residue from a hot chocolate.

    Hmmm,

    Im sipping my way slowly through a beautiful Zimbabwe brew from the trusty Plunger... not sure on the roast profile exactly as its from the batch that Grendel roasted for charity. Absolutely beautiful though. Starting to warm up a bit now that the fires roaring away, its about 5 C outside and the dogs are abusing me for taking too long to let em back in after their dinner ... Better go otherwise my name will be mud for a week.... Long memories have dogs :-?

      Im drinking a cappuccino made with Andys CS Brown Huehuehtenango. I remember last years huehueh as being a relatively uncomplex, clean and chocolately base for a milk drink and this years seems to be no different. It would make a great base for a blend, but for now this will keep me going through exams ;P

      Cheers,
      Luca

                    Sulawesi that is slightly "overdone"...It is too strong. I am going to do a less darker batch today.

                    Fingers crossed [smiley=smiley.gif]
