Daily Coffee Review
What is the best way to make coffee? If you Google it, you’ll see millions of pages mentioning it. Yesterday we watched a movie that dealt with determination, sacrifice, disappointment and precision. That sounds like life in general doesn’t it? It’s a struggle sometimes, and the odds are the better you are at managing these qualities, the more fulfilling life will be for you.
Let’s skip the first 3 qualities and go to precision. Precision is the result of a large degree of patience and thorough execution, over and over sometimes. It can be meaningless to execute over and over if you have sloppy precision. Your results will be all inconsistent, and inconsistency can lead to frustration and ultimately failure.
Blah Blah Blah……how the heck does this have anything to do with coffee? Simple, be precise when it comes to the amounts of water you use in each carafe, french press, or pot. Measure your coffee amounts carefully and be sure the coffee water temperature is in that sweet spot of 195 degrees to 205 degrees Fahrenheit. Simple things executed over and over…it leads to consistent results and can make you much more fulfilled.
With that in mind today’s coffee review will be with a country well known for consistency, Columbia. Today’s coffee review is Don Pablo Columbian Supremo Ground Coffee.
Coffee Water Temperature
200 Degrees Fahrenheit / 94 Degree Celsius
This is a medium-dark roast coffee
The coffee aroma is nice and rich with a hint of smoke and some citrus
The body of the coffee is mild and smooth. It’s medium body so there’s a clean element associated with the mildness that I would expect from a medium body coffee.
The coffee has some sweetness but only slightly.
The acidity level is medium low on this coffee.
The coffee has a light feeling in my mouth, not like the big bolder feelings I get with some of the heavier coffee. It’s enjoyable and not too complex and exactly what I would expect from ground Columbian coffee.
The finish on the coffee is interesting because it’s a bit flat at first but then it seems to become much more rich after a few seconds. The first time I took a sip, I thought it was burnt a bit and slightly tangy but that taste wore off immediately and it became a very pleasant finish. The characteristics are those that describe classic Columbian Coffee.
Coffee, is like anything else in life. When made with precision can lead to a very enjoyable experience. If you just take a little extra time preparing your coffee you might just be surprised at the results, and if may even put you in a better mood with a giant smile on your face. Here’s to and smiling for the rest of the day, enjoy your coffee!
