We love artisan coffee here at This Curated Life. We will be sharing many of our favorite roasts with you as well as our favorite brewing methods.Today we have chosen Intelligentsia Anjilanaka coffee and will brew with an Eva Solo.
Eva Solo is similar to a french press and makes a smooth rich cup of coffee.
We suggest getting a small food scale as this helps to measure the proper amounts of coffee to be ground.
Although we are not coffee experts, but rather nerdy enthusiasts who have found it to be true that all good coffee starts with the grind, our favorite grinder is the Virtuoso Preciso.
Ah… the perfect grind! Smells of light toasty caramel.
Fire up your kettle and you are ready to brew.
Soak and stir the grounds to extract the rich flavor of the perfectly roasted beans.
Don’t forget to download Intelligentsia’s Iphone app – it has the info you need for most types of brewing methods as well as timers to help you make the perfect cup of Joe. Intelligentsia’s website also has many resources and tutorials for brewing.
The timer is set with the Intelligentsia app to ensure perfect time and brew.
It is always a good idea to prime your coffee mugs with warm water before you pour your coffee. This helps to not shock the coffee and prevents any bitterness.
We now have a fantastic cup of Bolivian coffee!!! The Anjilanaka, Boliva from Intelligentsia is rich, smooth and delicate. A wonderful sweet mouth feel combined with a clean finish.
