I finished off my bag of the Ethiopian blend I have been drinking for the last few days and opened a new coffee tonight! I'm trying hard to stick with one coffee at a time since I'm the only one who drinks it in my house and I don't drink that much. This has become a new "hobby" very quickly and I don't need it to get out of hand like shaving has.
So the new coffee was Illy medium roast. I bought this on the advice of my in laws who took a trip to Italy in August 2014. It's definitely not cheap but worth the cost. I ground ~15 grams in my Hario Skerton and brewed a half pot in my french press. It was a very smooth drinking cup of coffee and went great with the chocolate cheesecake we had for dessert. It definitely beats the K cup coffee I was drinking last week but takes a considerable amount of time/effort more than the Keurig.
Enjoyed a cup of Illy medium in my aeropress this morning. Working towards the bottom of my first tin so I'll be getting a new coffee soon. Any suggestions of where to get something in the central Ohio area?
My new Bonavita BV1900LS arrived today (replacing a Keurig VUE). I was given a bag of Peet's Columbia so after a few cleaning runs I brewed my first carafe of coffee. Wow. Hot, strong, and no bitterness. I can't wait to try freshly ground Sumatra
