#Coffeealude: Sampling Ethiopia Yirgz from the @LaColombeCoffee WorkShop

I met the folks of La Colombe Coffee at CoffeeCon NYC 2015. La Colombe is the resident coffee of a local shop called The Able Baker in Maplewood NJ and I unknowingly had been drinking it for a while now. At Coffee Con I learned about their Workshop line of single origin coffee’s. I asked the nice folks at The Able Baker to order me some and they did. I have been sipping on Ethiopia Yirgz from the La Colombe for about a week now and well,I am pleasantly surprised.

I’m always ready for that next good cup of coffee. Instead of just staying with same roaster , I have been exploring different cups .Trying new coffee is always fun. Unlike my photography, where I mainly use cameras from one or two companies , I get to drink coffee from a variety of different small businesses. While I have my favorites I have being trying to branch out to explore new flavors. If you are a coffee roaster and want to send me a sample, drop me a message. I’m always looking for new coffee to try.

#Coffeealude: Sampling Copper Horse #Coffee Enrique Torres Colombian

This is my second coffee from Copper Horse Coffee. I had my reservations but I went for it anyway. I brewed the Torres Colombian in my standard way. in an Aeropress with 17g coffee for a12oz cup. This coffee had a nice full body to it with a nice aroma. The coffee was mild, in a good way, the flavors saunter on your tongue with a subtle sweetness for a black coffee. There were vanilla and chocolate notes that came through nicely and as the coffee cooled fruit notes appeared. It’s a complex cup. The acidity was nice and the finish,pleasant.

#Coffeealude: Sampling Copper Horse Coffee Toarco Jaya

Trying new coffee is always fun. Unlike my photography, where I mainly use cameras from one or two companies , I get to drink coffee from a variety of different small businesses. While I have my favorites I have being trying to branch out to explore new flavors. At Coffee Con 15 I acquired a few samples. When I got them home I put them in proper storage and started going through them. I’ll post notes on all of the samples till I run out. If you are a coffee roaster and want to send me a sample, drop me a message.

I did not really get a lot of notes of the Copper Horse Coffee Toarco Jaya
before I sampled it. I did have and few ounces of it at CoffeeCon15, but that was not enough to really judge it. They gave me a sample so I could get a proper taste it later.

CoffeeAlude 15: Coffee Mill Roasters in Milburn NJ

20130413Gservo-1184

While off to scout a location in South Mountain reservation, I passed through Milburn and ran across Coffee Mill roasters . When I first saw the name I thought  it was another coffee house that just put roasters in their name. I was wrong, happily. They actually roast coffee. Run by a former photographer, I found the place to be interesting, and the coffee was good. (more…)

The Weekly Coffeealude 12: @KohanaCoffee Cold Brew with the #NJPC

20130323Gservo-0653

This week I had a Meetup with New Jersey Photography Community at the Dynalite studio. The goal was to learn about lighting equipment , teach and learn some more. The group provided food and of course I had to bring coffee. Because I did not know the layout of the studio, I went with my favorite, most convenient, cold brew coffee from Kohana Coffee.  It hit the spot with the group , people were satisfied and we had a lot of fun.
