The uncommonly friendly coffee fanatics at Kaldi’s coffee sent us a bag of the exact same beans that @Tony Auger was using in the 2015 Brewers Cup Competition and we couldn’t wait to try them out the very next morning.
Why put off a good thing, right?
This blend is a combination of Nicaragua Limoncillo Javanica and Costa Rica El Centro Gesha. Read more about the story behind the blend on Kaldi’s Blog.
We first tried them in a Hario V6o as a pourover at 200* and the taste was outstanding!
(Coffee Review continued beneath the picture…)
We’ve found that different methods extract different flavors from different beans and, in this case, the beans produce nothing but excellent coffee time after time… the AeroPress method simply produces a whole new boldness that is dang agreeable.
Make that DANG agreeable.
So no matter what brew method you use to make handcrafted coffee these beans will blow your mind. When I took my first sip this morning (the first of many, I might add), the first thought to spring to mind was this: These are the perfect beans to have on hand when you want to impress someone! Whether it’s a fellow coffee lover (who only thinks they’ve tasted the best coffee known to any coffee nerd) or an in-law that you need to score extra points with – Kaldi’s New World Mocha Java Blend will make you a legend.
But you have to hurry over to the website of the best dang coffee roasters on the planet because there’s only so many of these beans to spread around like coffee love before they’re gone!
Good luck to David, Tyler and Tony as they compete in the 2015 United States Barista and Brewer’s Competition.
