My family and I have been enjoying a magnificent coffee over the past few days.
A Brazil Ipanema Yellow Bourbon microlot. A natural processed from Fazenda Rio Verde.
Balanced acidity with a lasting aftertaste of mulberries, raspberries and turkish delight. A creamy body with a slight sweet milk chocolate finish in a milk based drink.
As an espresso, or with milk, it has been praised by the increasing number of people who just happen to pop around.
I had it as a flat white on Thursday morning before driving into Brisbane for a meeting. I could still taste it over an hour later. I joined my colleagues for a coffee (at a reputable venue), and was so disappointed with the coffee that was served. It did not compare. A pleasant reminder of the quality of coffee served at home.
Ah just stumbled upon this thread, great idea! Ah wow that Brazil bean sounds incredible, what a treat, and those coffees that you can still taste for hours afterwards... *drooling*
Whilst I'm letting my Harrar beans rest a little more, I only drank half the shots when I was trying to dial them in (so as not to overconsume XD), and chucked the rest in a cup in the fridge, just for fun and to see what they taste like in a few days.
So as blasphemous as it is (and as I had no other coffee around), decided to boil the kettle, fill a cup, and pour equivalent of a double shot (cold, and about 40g worth) over the hot water, and drink it is a long black.
Was actually surprised, and I quite enjoyed it! Of course definitely doesn't compare with a freshly made long black by any means, you could tell haha, but still had alot of nice flavours coming through! Something worth considering rather than dumping extra shots down the sink
