Chocolatey and delicious. Cometeer brewing is always on point. Ready for some new roasts though!

Quite good especially for decaf its from cometeer so its an instant frozen pod and very futuristic.

A very good fika this afternoon. 27 with sleet patches causing me to slip may not sound relaxing, but it was for the same reason children like standing in the rain. Rain is fun but also temporary, so enjoy it while it lasts even if uncomfortable. That was me with the cold today (and with a lot of things in life lately). For example, Covid is temporary too. Im excited for the months ahead for so many reasons. One major one is to finally get a coffee in a real life coffee shop with @kelsea.

Pretty good, not my favorite but still good. But we are snowed in so just happy to have some coffee.

Lots of work to do today so straight into it, zero fika morning. This cold needs to go so that our new beans get here from Blue Bottle. Until then, this go to is pretty nice.

Auto dripper out of commission, fortunately Cometteer sent me a new Counter Culture roast. Increasingly I find that I like the medium tasting notes, even though I claim to only like dark coffee.No pic today, my app is in a very precarious debugging state. :)

Chemex pour over with paper filter

Used heavy cream. Microwaved for 7 seconds and a hand wand to create the frothy consistency. Poured the shot from the Gaggia Anima Prestige and poured the heated heavy cream over the top. Photo is after the first few sips.

Its interesting because its not a sweet coffee by any means but it definitely has sweet undertones. The aroma isnt anything to write home about and the flavors it does have are pretty subtle.

Using version 1.2 of my pour over recipe. Went with a little finer grind which was able to extract more flavors that I was missing before.

Bad pour over but pretty good roast all things considered.

Very drinkable slight notes of fruitiness.Pour over - 25g of ground coffee (size 8 out of 18) so somewhat finer for a pour over. 400g of water at 205 degrees. Approx 4:30 minutes total brew time.

Good brew with some chocolate notes. Bold flavor with a subtle hint of sweetness at the end.

Went French press style with this roast today. I get more chocolate flavor this way compared to the auto drip. Tastes like a medium roast with some chocolate background flavors. I remember first having this roast as a pour over in Starkville, MS and that so far has been the best way to enjoy this roast. Cant wait to get a pour over setup soon!
