Washed the filter, warmed the mug and prepared hot water. Water temperature was 96.9ºC. Measured 22g 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 convinced me this was a dark roast. There were hints of an acidic fruit but I couldn’t place which one.
The first taste was refreshingly peppery. It gave way to a bitterness that I struggled to label. No hints of Orange cheesecake that I could detect, but that may just be that I’ve never had orange cheesecake.
