Day 14 - Coffee Advent Calendar 2022

For espresso and Italian coffee maker (moka pot)

Here is Hale Coffee, a roaster from Toronto, Ontario, who has been working since 2013. He offers us here Toriba, a very well-balanced coffee that will appeal to both espresso and Italian coffee makers (mocha pot).

This coffee is also signed Barbosa, a family whose name is strongly associated with quality when talking about coffee from Brazil. It is therefore not surprising to see this coffee, roasted according to Hale's know-how, offer you beautiful notes of butterscotch and chestnut.

In espresso

18g for (double espresso) to extract 40 g of liquid in 25 seconds .

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.
