In these work from home times, I can’t get through my Monday morning, hell most mornings without a good cup of coffee and a bit of photography.
This Monday morning, and for the past week, I have been sipping on Twisted Tulip’s, a coffee shop in East Hanover New Jersey, house blend. Gradiant, as it is named “consists of washed villa sarchi from Guatemala, catuai, caturra, + bourbon from Nicaragua, and red and yellow catuai grown in Brazil.” It is referred to as an espresso blend, but, because it’s a medium roast I have been drinking it as a pour-over, using my Chemex to brew with a ratio of 3 tablespoons for every 1 cup of water at about 210 degrees.
This coffee is a medium roast with strong Notes of crisp green apple, a little caramel chocolate with a lite malty black tea undertone. It’s a very pleasant brew. I enjoyed this coffee and it may go into regular workweek coffee rotation.
