Day 16 - Coffee Advent Calendar 2022

A little treasure

Open that bag and take a big whiff of that grain's aroma if you haven't already. This treasure comes to us from the crew of Ontario coffee roaster Pirates of Coffee.

Bubble Gum is produced by Juan D Gallego, a breeder who mainly focuses on developing castillo rosario, supremo, wush wush and geisha strains. In this case, it is a castillo rosario which underwent an anaerobic fermentation of 120 hours, with a brewing of the cherries every 24 hours favoring a consistent fermentation. In the cup, you will find notes of grape candy, mango, raspberry and chewing gum.

In filter

Quantity: 20g ground coffee (sugar grain size) / 320ml cup

  1. The bloom: start by pouring 40g water for the first 30 seconds to release the CO2 contained in the grain and the volatile aromatic compounds;
  2. Then pour in a circular motion from the inside outwards another 140g water;
  3. We end with a last 140g of water in a circular motion when the 2nd stage has not yet completely run out for a cup of 320 ml in total.

Desired infusion time in filter : 2 minutes 30 to 3 minutes.

    To be enjoyed quietly, giving it time to cool down. This will allow you to experience different layers of flavors.
