What's your coffee today? What brew method? Photos

This will sound stupid.

Two Roosters light roast mixed with Dark Hollow Sumatran Mandheling Medium roast. The Two Roosters has an Oct 19 date but the Dark Hollow has a December roast date. I wasn't paying attention. So I mix the two, grind them and the taste is actually good. The Sumatra, although stale, adds some body to the light roast. Plus I can use up the Dark Hollow.
And drip

I have not used my Hario V60 02 glass in months. So, a long overdue test drive is in order.

I rinsed the filter twice.

Preheat with 60ml and dispose.

Pour 60ml quickly for preinfusion.

Pour 60ml relatively fast for turbidity.

Pleasant and sweet cup.
 
As of about ten years ago, I only drink Hawaiian coffee, usually Kona. Still looking for the best of the best, as not all Hawaiian coffee is created equal. Last one I got was not at all worth the price. I use a Greek/Turkish coffee pot (Cezve Ibrik) like these:

).

Here's a video showing the basics, though I have my own way:


I don't use the powdered Greek or Turkish coffee, but a coarse grind Hawaiian, and run it through a mug filter like this one:

 
The Bonavita sits idle most of the time. This is a good day to take it for a spin.

Bonavita 1901 glass
Community Coffee Signature Blend Dark roast - 33.3g ground with a Baratza Encore on setting 16
Water - 600g

I enabled the pre-infusion. Brewing took 4 minutes total.

Yield: 480g of smooth, enjoyable coffee.

I still prefer to do the pour over.
 
Basic method of coffee extraction....Have a great day all.
Basic but excellent.

Just made an aeropress. Stumbled across a new recipe yesterday, really good:

Using Quarter Horse Dark Horse espresso from Birmingham, England.
  • Fine grind (near-espresso), circa 20g
  • Pre-warm aeropress
  • 80degC water (having only a boiler at work I use a little cold water first to create a cool slurry, ensuring temp hits 80 once it's all in)
  • Steep 1min
  • Press 45s

Fruity with lots of body & sweetness. Perfect.

Yep, have a great day everyone.
