Washed the filter, warmed the mug and prepared hot water. Water temperature was 95.2ºC. Measured 21g coffee and poured 50ml over the coffee to wet it. Waited 30s and pured over a further 250ml water, keeping the filter funnel about half full.
The coffee grounds smelled like the bark of a sour fruit tree. I couldn’t place the fruit.
When wet, they reminded me of manure. Not the unpleasant smell, but the smell of a well fertilised garden.
I was wrong on the roast again. I had this one down as a dark roast. It had an earthy, almost nutty taste. It reminded me of Grape Nuts.
