Lets talk about COFFEE - Page 105

post #1561 of 2680
Anyone ever tried either Everymen Espresso, Laughing Man Coffee & Tea, or Intelligentsia Coffee (NYC location), just some random lists I come up (more like stuff I heard is not bad but I have not tried in NYC).

p.s. and I mean to get a cup of coffee, not to buy beans, my personal day to day is Joe's Art of Coffee (Grand Central location), and I like both Gimme Coffee and Cafe Grumpy, and a bit underwhelmed by Stumptown

I like intelligentsia despite the third wave hate. A little too precious but their coffee is great.

There's a place in Windsor terrace in Brooklyn that serves French press intelligencia and it is amazing. They do a great job.

I had the Stumptown Ethiopian Chelbassa from Yirgacheffe this morning that Kevin Knox mentions in his blog post. It is really excellent, and the acidity isn't too prominent probably because of my brewing method (CCD) and it probably mixed with some retained grounds of Peet's Queen City in the grinder. Just joking about the latter: there's probably less than half a gram of retained grinds.

I get lots of toffee notes.

I tried out the cqcoffee motoretta today and my first pull was pretty good... Nice smooth extraction with a honey like flow ... I probably should have cut off the shot a few seconds before I did to optimize the flavor, but nonetheless, I can already taste a level of quality that is better than the other beans I've tried. Thumbs up to this roast

I had that last month, was quite nice.

Their Mordecofe has been one of my staples. Not sure which of those two I liked better, rather similar overall.

I get my coffee from a seattle-based company called Fonte. Medium roast and I have it with cream, no sugar. Sugar ruins coffee.

And cream doesnt?

I usually add just a bit to cool it down

George Howell coffee replied to my email and told me that Terroir coffee is carried in the local Whole Foods, so on my way now to pick up a bag or two

They have a great assortment!

I chose the Daterra S Italian espresso... Hoping the hazelnut flavor comes out a bit

Just had an espresso shot of the chelbessa. Holy hell it's acidic.
post #1573 of 2680
The cqcoffee espresso motoretta turned out to be a bit too bright and fruity for my liking so they're sending me a free 12oz bag of something a bit more full-bodied icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

The Daterra Terroir espresso is quite interesting - much more to my liking after just one pull - hoping it goes well with milk as a latte

Try the Chelbessa in a French press or paper filter brew. It should mellow out considerably. Apparently pressurized methods amplify acidity.

Also, the barista may have underextracted the espresso: it seems to be a bad habit for the 3rd wavers.
