Balanced, medium bodied cup
Named after Rochester’s rich history of clothing craftsmanship, this crowd pleasing coffee is woven together with beans from Azahar Coffee in Colombia as well as a pulped-natural Brazil. The result is a flavorful, beautifully balanced, medium-bodied cup. Enjoy this coffee with your regular coffee maker, as a pour-over, as an espresso, or however you want! This blend has a lot of range and tastes great anyway you like to enjoy it.
About Azahar Coffee
Azahar Coffee, founded in 2010, works diligently to find the best coffees grown in Colombia even if it means traveling to some of the most remote parts of the country. They are also committed to bringing higher, more stable income to farmers through direct trade relationships with roasters such as ourselves. By creating a pricing structure outside the C market, they help farmers predict future earnings enabling them to commit to growing higher quality coffee-a winning scenario for everyone. In addition, Azahar ensures that the people of Colombia enjoy the work of their own hands by creating specialty coffee cafes across the country that serve high quality Colombian coffee.
Use Filtered Water
Contaminants and chemicals in your water can make your coffee taste muddy, and they can also be harsh on your equipment. Using filtered (but not distilled) water helps your coffee taste clean, bright, and naturally sweet. And while there are a lot of expensive water filters on the market, we find that an inexpensive, basic carbon filter does a great job filtering water for coffee brewing.
We all love the smell of freshly ground coffee but all that beautiful aroma should be going into your cup and not just into the air. That is why we recommend grinding your coffee immediately before brewing so that all that goodness isn’t lost. The sooner you use your coffee after grinding, the more flavorful your cup will be preventing it from tasting stale and flat. And for best grinding results, we highly recommend using a quality burr grinder, like a Baratza.
Coffee to Water Ratio
The amount of coffee beans you use can have a big impact on taste. Too much coffee, and the cup can taste heavy and sour. Too little coffee, and the cup can taste thin and bitter. We recommend using a 1:16 ratio by weight, 60g of coffee for every 1,000g of water which is about 2 Tbsp of coffee for every 8oz of water. Our preference is to use a scale to weigh coffee and water for accuracy and consistency, all of which can make a big difference.
