This week I got to test a selection of Tonx coffee from the Sidama region of Ethiopia, Wottuna Boltuma. Tonx sent me a sample from their subscription service. I saw this as a great addition to this series of post I am doing. Instead of just one coffee image every week, I have decided to make it a weekly coffee post. I am going to continue with the idea of making original coffee images. I just cant stop at one image every week.
Over all the coffee had good flavor. It’s very drinkable. It was and intresting coffee to test. Finding a new spot for the image was intresting.
The coffee smelled great out the bag. I measured out about 16 grams, for about 8 ounced of water.
When brewed in the Hario Coffee Dripper V60 02 the coffee, laced with a decent acidity, had more cherry notes than chocolate with a medium body. I am going to give the coffee a few more tries, so far I am satisfied. The coffee which was clean tasting, and well roasted. I am going to try it as an espresso in the coming days, as well as in my AeroPress. (I will update this post with notes) The Wottuna Boltuma was a pleasant introduction to Tonx.
Thanks to my fellow Phoblographer Peter Walkowiak for telling me about Tonx.
I made the Wottuna Boltuma with the AeroPress Coffee Maker and it was similar to when I made it with the Hario. It was a little smother. I used a lower temp for the water with a slightly longer steep. It was a good cup over all , the Acidity was much lower
The espresso was actually very nice. The chocolaty note were more noticeable as it cooled. I had just enough left and I made and americano and I was not disappointed .
