Coffee

Java Talk

Ok, I will admit it I am a coffee addict. It started in college when I worked as a barista and learned about arabica beans and why certain roasts taste burnt or stronger than others. Today I go to Starbucks and local coffee houses almost daily, but when working from home I need to have a good coffee.

Do you like bold coffee?

I am in love with Tanzania Peaberry Coffee, Mount Kilimanjaro, Whole Bean, Fresh Roasted, 16-ounce as it is an intense flavor coupled with mellow winy overtone. Not bitter and very smooth.

What is a Peaberry Coffee? I fell in love with it when Starbucks had an exclusive reserve for Peaberry coffee. The peaberry cherry is unique and has a much richer flavor when roasted. They are only found in 5% of the crop and are desired by coffee connoisseurs and are followed much like Kona beans, but much cheaper.

So what Coffee pot do I use?

When I am in a hurry I use my  Keriug (it’s on sale for $99 at Target) but when I am not in a super big hurry I use my Chemex.

Recently, I went to the new roastery Starbucks in Chicago (it felt like being at Disney to me, but I really love coffee) and fell in love with their pour-over system and how amazing it tastes over their typical brew. I wanted this taste at home which is so much fresher than my Keriug and just as easy.

When you have made your coffee simply clean and store it on the caddy below.

Goose Neck Water Kettle Bodum Goose Neck 27oz Electric Water Kettle – Black

I chose this kettle as I did not have one already and based on reviews and cost it seemed perfect. Starbucks recommends a much more expensive one but we are just heating water here and I am happy with my $40 spent. It’s quick and easy and it gives my coffee bar a sleek look.

Filter: Pour Over Coffee Filter-Reusable 304 Stainless Steel Coffee Dripper Wide Metal Base Perfect for Chemex

I also tried to use the paper filters like Starbucks does, however, I could not figure out how to fold it properly and continued to get grounds in my coffee. I also feel like the reusable stainless steel filter is more economical and it obviously produces less waste. It is easy to clean and keeps the grounds out of my coffee. I simply dump grounds once they have cooled and then rinse them in my sink, ready for my next cup.

Chemex coffee maker stands: I like how well this is made and how it keeps things tidy. It comes with a rubber mat to catch any spills and is easy to clean.
