A picture's worth a thousand words ...
Mild, inoffensive. Surprisingly good, actually.
Gibraltar + Idido Misty Valley from the lever machine.
Pourover bar for Fleur.
Lever machine. Tasted like it burnt the coffee a bit, but, still, nice coffee.
Kyoto brewer + syphon bar.
Syphon of the IMV.
Right, so great coffee from Blue Bottle, but missed out on Ritual. I am currently writing from Waterbury, Vermont, taking the Coffeelab course with Ben and Jen from Five Senses. One of the questions that I'm hoping to answer is exactly how much Australian coffee in general sucks compared with what's possible. The first day has proved to be a great calibration with the SCAA calibration form ... and I'm pretty zonked ...
