Preparation

Time: 11:30

Washed the filter, warmed the mug and prepared hot water. Water temperature was 96.4ºC. 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.

Observation

The coffee grounds reminded me of a sweet wood with hints of apple vinegar.

The taste was sweet but earthy with a creaminess that reminded me of the lightest chocolate brownie.
