the nicaragua cup of excellence

made this great ecco coffee up lickety-split this morning in the chemex instead of the vac pot, simply because i already had the chemex out. i was so happy to see this come in the mail yesterday because i knew it would be intriguing.

it's an organic, fair-trade coffee with a great floral character. i'm not sure the chemex really does it justice, even if i take oren's tip and brew with no less than 30 oz. water (that requires a nice 1.75 oz. ground coffee, minimum!).

tomorrow i really have to make this in the vac pot -- the chemex did justice to this coffee's body but not, i think, to its nuances.

tune in tomorrow for an update. . .
