Jose’s Teasia Coffee-A-Day Tasting- Day 5 with El Salvador (Regular Brew)

El Salvador Coffee

Grown in volcanic soils high in the mountains of El Salvador, most of these beans tend to be softer and exhibit less acidity than typical Central American beans. However, ours are of the Bourbon variety and are known for a more complex flavor and aroma – these beans grow slower (higher altitude) allowing them more time to absorb nutrients and develop the best possible flavor.

When I first sipped this coffee it was very smooth.  If I were to compare it to another coffee it would be a slightly softer brother of the Colombia Coffee. There’s a hint of apple after each sip along with a light after taste. This would pair wonderfully with a savory freshly baked cheese bread stick.

PRO TIP- Add a hint of milk or soy milk to get a wonderful creamy taste with each sip.

Jose’s Teasia Coffee-A-Day Tasting- Day 4 with Burundi (Latte)

latte coffee drop

A wonderful latte, gets better and better with each sip. The well-balanced and full bodied flavor is nicely accentuated with notes of black tea, sweet apricot along with a tang of orange juice.  This coffee Burundi was made with soy milk and it really complements the coffee beans. A perfect latte to drink during the cold winter and huddle around a campfire or cozy up under a warm blanket.  This latte goes down really smooth and has a wonderful after taste full of honey and soy milk.

Our Burundi coffee plant is grown in volcanic rich soil in the region of Mbirizi at an altitude of 1700-1800 meters. If you love East and Central African coffees such as Rwanda, Tanzania and Kivu, this roast is for you!

PRO TIP- Don’t feel like a warm drink? Make it an iced latte by adding some ice cubes and more soy milk for that creamy texture.

Jose’s Teasia Coffee-A-Day Tasting- Day 3 with Colombia Huila (Regular Brew)

blog coffee colombia

Day 3 of coffee is going to be exciting because it’s the Colombia Huila. A lot of my coworkers thoroughly enjoy this coffee brew because of the prominent coffee taste and everyone flocks to the coffee maker once a new pot brews.

Here’s some background about our Colombia Huila single origin coffee beans. In the growing region of the department of Huila, Colombia, most coffee comes from small family owned farms. These farmers will pick and process their own coffee before delivering to larger factories for sorting and packaging.

My Thoughts: You can smell the mixture of apple and caramel with a light hint of honey from the coffee. The caramel really hits the spot with its strong aroma and flavor. This is a smooth coffee that’s great for every morning (if you can get a cup before your coworkers drink it all). This Coffee would go great with something sweet like a cream filled donut or a nice chocolate bar with nuts.

PRO TIP- Add a hint of milk or soy milk to get a wonderful creamy taste with each sip.

  • STORAGE AND BREWING: To preserve the fresh roasted flavor of your Colombian coffee beans, store in an air-tight container (or very tightly seal the bag), and keep in a dark and cool location. For best results, we recommend grinding your Teasia coffee no more than 15 minutes prior to brewing!

Chocolate Bundt Cake Recipe

brownie-cake-chocolate-45202The holidays are here! Start it off right with a Bundt Cake made with your favorite Teasia Coffee flavor. By the end of this holiday season your whole family will want the recipe.  A fun and favorable recipe that all your family members will surely enjoy, don’t take our word make it yourself today.

Ingredients:
Vegetable oil spray
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3/4 cup canola oil
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 tablespoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup of Uganda Bugisu (brewed)
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 tablespoon corn syrup
1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. To make the cake: Place the cup of brewed Uganda Bugisu coffee, butter, and cocoa in a small saucepan or microwave-safe bowl. Heat, stirring, until the butter melts. Remove from the heat, and whisk until smooth. Let the mixture cool for 10 minutes.
  3. While the chocolate is cooling, put the sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flour into a mixing bowl, whisking to combine.
  4. Pour the cooled chocolate mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients, and mix until thoroughly combined. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl, and mix again to incorporate any residue.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vanilla, eggs, and heavy cream. Mix into the chocolate batter, stirring until thoroughly combined.
  6. Thoroughly grease a 10- to 12-cup Bundt pan, preferably non-stick. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake the cake for 50 to 55 minutes, until a long toothpick or skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Note: a pan with a dark interior will bake the cake more quickly; start checking at about 40 minutes.
  7. Remove the cake from the oven, wait 5 minutes, and turn the pan over onto a cooling rack. After 5 more minutes, lift the pan off the cake. Let the cake cool completely before icing.
  8. To make the icing: Combine the chocolate and cream in a microwave-safe bowl, or in a saucepan set over medium heat. Heat until the cream starts to bubble around the edges.
  9. Remove from the heat, and stir until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Spoon the icing over the top of the cake, letting it drip down the sides.
  10. Store any leftover cake at room temperature, well wrapped, for several days. Freeze for longer storage.

PRO TIP:  To intensify the chocolate flavor of this cake and cut down on the sweetness level, try a stronger brew of Teasia Coffee .

STRONG:  Teasia Rwanda Coffee

SWEET: Teasia Tanzania Peaberry Coffee
