This morning, down to my last jar of roasted coffee, I had a Kenya AA Nyeri – Gachatha roasted to a City+ two weeks ago. Not sure why it had been left, but it had. I weighed out the beans and they came to 62g. Since I’ve been finding the sweet spot to be 44g, I didn’t want 18g left hanging around; I’m not regularly using any other method that produces smaller quantities of coffee. So, I figured that I would have a slightly strong brew in the French Press, but it was nice. The over-rested beans had probably started to loose some of their flavor, so I wasn’t too worried.
The result: a nice, bright, but not overpowering cup that had plenty of flavor. Slightly past it’s prime, but wasn’t overly bright either. I’m not planning on regularly using 60+ grams of beans, but this one off was nice.
Well, my task tonight is to replenish my stash of roasted. Probably a Peru, Bali and Rwanda. The Rwanda does great on short rest; the Bali is fabulous after about 3 days rest and the Peru, I haven’t used too much yet.
Solo Deo Gloria,
