Preparation: Aero Press
Scores: Scale of 1 - 10 with 10 being excellent
Hint of Smoke
Summary: It is dark, wet and stormy here in Portland, Oregon. Thanks to Danny, I have the perfect coffee to brew. He gave me an early Christmas present of coffee beans from HAPPYROCK Coffee Roastery. A Black Bear Storm is brewing in my Aero Press. Grrrr.......
Although there is a bear on the label, this coffee does not bite. It is fairly smooth and very dark. The only negative is that after sipping two cups I have an ashy aftertaste in my mouth. With a little cream and sugar........ all is better.
I ground the beans in my Burr coffee grinder on the #2 setting and used 160* water in the Aero Press single serve coffee maker.
Overall score: 9
