JANUARY's featured coffee for PRESS and CONE


Seriously, peaberries can be really intense and if you are good at dialing them in then you have a serious gem. Needless to say we are sippin on emeralds here at Everyman. I coarsened the grind and dropped the dose a bit and BLAM! Sweet balanced mother of god. Complex whirlwind of dried sweet fruits like plums, raisins, dates followed by brightness from the gods of citrus. There's also a dry spice in the finish that calms things down. Wait for it to cool a bit and you'll notice a strong peach flavor. All in all STELLAR.

I chose to highlight this coffee so you can get your very own hand-crafty cup from the aeropress or the bonmac cone!

POUR OVER onward!

We are now serving Aeropress'd coffee and Pour over Bonmac coffee! It's $3 a cup. Pick your method. We suggest the Kenyan Thiriku from Nyeri, Kenya. In my humble opinion, this is the best coffee of the season! Get it while it's hot.

I made Aeropress coffee with Oliver Strand today! So fun. We tried two different coffees. The Finca Mauritania from El Salvador and a the Thiriku from Nyeri, Kenya.

We used the inverted Aeropress method with a quick saturation of the grounds followed by a stir. Then fill, cap, press and drink.
The process took about 1:30 mins. 19-20 grams of coffee. Temperature at approximately 190 degrees Fahrenheit Super quick and easy.

Everyman is proud to announce soon we will be offering Aeropress and Bon Mac pour over brew methods! I think we will be all set up, staff trained, and brewing delicious single cup pick your origin brews in about a week or two.
Yield is about 8 oz at $3.00 per cup.

The Kenyan had bright lemon/lime acidity. We up dosed on this one to 20 grams and went a touch coarser on the grind. The results were mouthwatering. I could feel a pool forming under my tongue as the brightness hit my palate.

The Mauritania was tasting super sweet and juicy at 19 grams. Approximately 6.5 oz of water. Slightly finer grind. I detected peaches and cinnamon. I did up the dose to 22 grams which gave the cup a syrupy body, but was unfortunately a bit under-extracted.
