Day 3 - Coffee Advent Calendar 2022

Let's get out of our comfort zone a bit. This is Jazmines from Arvida Roasting Co. , a coffee roaster from Jonquière, Quebec.

Bearing the name of the plantation where it is grown, Finca Las Jazmines, through nearly 30,000 coffee trees, under the guidance of Jose Lizardo Alba in the department of Huila in Colombia. It is of the pink bourbon variety, a cross between red and yellow bourbon. It is an adventurous coffee that offers notes of tomato jam (you just have to put your nose in the bag to see), peach and honey with a nice acidity and at the same time a certain sweetness.

In filter

Quantity: 20g ground coffee (sugar grain size) / 340ml cup

  1. The bloom: start by pouring 5 0g 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 70 g water for another 30 seconds;
  3. We pour again 110g of water in a circular motion when the 2nd stage has not yet completely elapsed
  4. We finish with a last sequence of 110 g of water for a total infusion time of 3 minutes 40 seconds.


Desired infusion time in filter : 3 minutes 40 seconds

In espresso

To be tested in single/double espresso to see its character. We suggest an extraction of a double dose (18g) in 23 seconds. Although its notes may make you doubt it, it goes well with milk.
