I’m giving the aeropress a brief rest from the conga line of different single origins I’ve been drinking this year, thanks to the generous offer of Marc from Griffiths Coffee. To celebrate the world cup, they have made their “Mundial 14” – a blend of South American coffees (including Brazil) that comes ground in a vacuum-sealed […]
I received a bag of these beans in repsonse to a twitter competition, and it doesn’t disappoint. Better as a black coffee than with milk, it has a bright acidity at first, and then a rich earthiness, with a lingering aftertaste. Well worth a look.
