Washed the filter, warmed the mug and prepared hot water. Water temperature was 97.5ºC. 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 reminded me of a the vegetable isle in a Chinese supermarket. An earthy mix of smells that all felt alien.
This light coffee had the mouthfeel of a perfectly brewed black tea. As the tea faded, a brief hint of sweetnees waved goodbye to the coffee and this year’s advent of coffee.
