Day 23 - Coffee Advent Calendar 2022

Like a phoenix rising from its ashes

This is the fourth consecutive year of this relationship between Structure Coffee Roasters, located in Montreal, and producer Walter Daniel of Finca La Esperanza in Honduras. In 2012, his plantation was completely destroyed by coffee leaf rust disease. After getting out of this crisis, part of the farm was decimated by the Eta and Iota storms. It is therefore only recently that they have been able to increase the volume of their production.

In the cup, we find a nice note of hazelnut as well as red cherry. It is pleasant as much in espresso as in filter.

In espresso

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

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.
