Washed the filter, warmed the mug and prepared hot water. Water temperature was 98.6ºC. Measured 20g coffee and poured 25ml over the coffee to wet it. Waited 30s and pured over a further 300ml water, keeping the filter funnel about half full.
If the smell of the coffee were a musical note it would be high pitched. The smell itself was subtle but with hints of an earthy bitterness. In the mug, the musical notes drop a few octaves and we start to detect smells of toasting.
This one is a light roast. The taste brings out a nutty bitterness that drowns out everything else. It leaves behind a taste of toasted cherry stone.
