BREW GUIDE: Kindness Cup #1 // Huila // Columbia
You've found one of our brewing guides! Here are recipes we enjoy using with our first Kindness Cup.
Properly extracted, this brew should have a bright, fruity and floral papaya flavor. if the taste is twiggy and flat, extract less. if sharp, lemony and empty, extract more.
As with any of our coffee recipes, this is only a guide! In a cafe, coffee recipes should be checked and adjusted at least once daily.
You might like to brew or taste your coffee differently than us - this is great! Our hope is to bring you joy - if your life is better using a different recipe, by all means go ahead 😇
Here are the recipes:
(makes 2 cups)
32g coffee, 450g water (1:14 ratio) @ 93 degrees
5:30 total brewing time, ~18% extraction yield
Properly extracted, this brew should have a deep aromatic quality to a plum/raspberry fruitiness. If it tastes like a sludgey fruit salad, it is over extracted. If it tastes sharp and hollow like toothpaste or grapefruit, extract more.
AEROPRESS (makes 1 cup)
16g coffee, 232g water (1:14.5 ratio) @ 88 degrees.
2:50 total brewing time ~18% extraction yield
19g coffee, 50g water out (1:2.5 ratio), 35 seconds, ~18.5% extraction yield
Because we don't know your espresso setup, here are some some general tips:
- our omni or espresso roasts for this coffee are quite light - we are looking for a very bright acidity, like a laser beam in your mouth
- but, for this to be fun, there needs to be sugar balancing the acidity. So, we like extracting a bit more than usual, into a bit more water
- you might need to grind finer than you're used to - not to worry! It is taste that we care about, not the physical size of the grinds, so crank that dial~
Properly extracted, this brew should have a shockingly tart & sweet raspberry flavour that sparkles in your mouth - If it tastes dull, muddy or muted, extract less. If the taste is very short, thin and sour at the sides of your mouth, extract more
