Day 9 starts with a wonderful cup of Mexican Chiapas freshly roasted single origin coffee beans. This is one of my favorite methods to prepare coffee because the Pour Over Method coffee flavor results in an aromatic, fuller serving of coffee compared to a coffee maker.
At first glance the one smell that captures your attention is the vanilla scent from the beans and even more apparent when the beans are ground. (Don’t forget to brew your coffee within 15 minutes of grinding the beans to ensure freshness and taste!) The mixture of cocoa and orange sounded strange to me but I was pleasantly surprised how well they pair together. The flavor comes out to be very mild and enjoyable, my preference of coffee drinks. After finishing my first cup I was ready for more! This is one of my favorites for sure and is highly recommended.
PRO-TIP: For the Pour Over Method, make sure to slowly pour the hot water over the filter which will allow time for the water to pull out more flavor from the grounds.
Stay tuned for Day 10’s coffee tasting where I am sharing my thoughts on our Mexican Decaf coffee beans.
Today I am trying the Ethiopia Sidamo. These coffees are known for their slightly woody aroma along with a rich body that is very complex along with a bright and vibrant aftertaste.
This coffee reminds me of our Teasia single origin Brazil Fazenda, as they both have a strong but smooth taste. There’s a well-balanced amount of flavor which consist of the peach and a good amount of citrus, but the main flavor and aroma is definitely buttery caramel. This brew would pair really nicely with some bacon & eggs, which is the perfect way to jump start your mornings. Also, super enjoyable as a cold brew that you can take along to the beach.
FUN FACT: Did you know that Ethiopia is the seventh largest producer of coffee and the top producer of coffee in Africa?
Leave us a comment below and let us know your favorite type of coffee!
It’s day 6 of my coffee taste testing and I’m starting to get really into all these wonderful single origin coffee beans. If you could only smell the aroma when the beans are freshly roasted, it’s simply amazing.
Today’s coffee is from Ethiopia and it’s a bit hard to pronounce: Ethiopia Yirgacheffe or Irgacheffe. The beans are known for of the highest quality Arabica coffee beans in the world. Ethiopian Yirgacheffe has a high quality unique fragrance and distinctive flavor.
If I could compare this coffee I would say it’s close to Brazil Fazenda, they both have a strong yet smooth taste. There’s a well-balanced amount of flavor which consists of peach to the distinct amount of citrus, but the main flavor and smell is caramel. YUM! How about a nice cup of freshly brewed single origin Ethiopia Yirgacheffe coffee enjoyed with a hearty breakfast with bacon and eggs to start your relaxing weekend. Afterwards, take a stroll on the beach to clear your mind.
PRO TIP: Due to its bright notes and vibrant aftertaste, this coffee makes an awesome iced coffee so don’t be afraid to add some ice and milk to enjoy!
It’s that time of year again and we are just loving this scone recipe. Whether you’re going to bake this for Galentine’s or even your Valentine’s, this is something so delicious and visually pleasing. Don’t forget to bake an extra batch for work to share with everyone.
2 cups flour
¼ cup sugar (use less if you plan on adding chocolate chips)
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
6 tablespoons of cold butter, cut into chunks
½ cup mini chocolate chips OR regular sized if you like larger chunks of chocolate
¾ cups + 1 tsp heavy cream, divided
1 tsp pure vanilla extract (We don’t recommend the imitation kind)
½ tsp red food coloring (for the pink color!)
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Mix dry ingredients together: flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Cut cold butter with a butter knife so it resembles large, coarse crumbs. Gently stir in chocolate chips.
- Mix wet ingredients: ¾ c heavy cream, egg , vanilla along with food coloring into a mixing bowl. Using a wire whisk, blend ingredients well and if you feel your mixture isn’t pink enough, add a couple more drops of red food coloring. Add flour to mixture and stir to form a soft dough.
- Lightly flour your surface such as a cutting board and pat into an 8-inch circle. Using a round or heart-shaped cookie cutter, start cutting out your desired shapes.
- Continue to gather scraps of dough and shaping the dough into a circle and using cookie cutter to make additional scones.
- On an ungreased baking sheet, brush the tops with heavy cream (1 tsp).
- Place in oven for about 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. To ensure even baking, rotate your baking sheet at the 8-minute mark.
- Once done, let the scones cool on a wire rack.
Last step: We love to enjoy this freshly baked scone with our Teasia Coffee single origin coffee! Our top recommended flavors are: Colombia Huila, Ethiopia Sidamo and Congo Kivu.
PRO TIP: You can cut out these cones into heart shapes by using a cookie cutter. Spray cookie cutter with some cooking spray to prevent dough from sticking.
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.

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.
Today’s coffee is prepared the old fashioned way in the coffee maker. The Brazil Fazenda is smooth with light acidity and has a mild and buttery taste with hints of hazelnut and cocoa.
Highlights: A strong coffee with a smooth taste to it that I really enjoyed. It’s a great coffee for everyday and I would recommend it for someone who doesn’t drink coffee daily too. The cocoa flavor is very enjoyable with every sip you take. The best food to pair with would be a breakfast sandwich on a croissant.
PRO TIP- If you feel the cocoa taste is too strong, add some sugar to balance it out with some sweetness.
Next week, Jose is trying our Burundi which is full-bodied with notes of black tea, sweet apricot, juicy cherry and a tang of orange juice.

Day 1 – Bali Blue Moon (Cold Brew)
Highlights: This coffee is for anyone who wants a wake-up call each morning. The strong taste really packs a punch at first, but after taking a few more sips, my body is more awake and it becomes a really smooth drink. This coffee would go great with some sweet bread.
PRO TIP: Add a bit of milk if it’s too strong of a taste for you, paired with some sugar for a delicious drink.
Cold Brew Quick Tip Preparation:
What is the best way to make cold brew coffee at home?
- Grind our Teasia Single Origin Coffee Beans into a coarse grind.
- Combine the ground coffee and water in the jar.
- Mix well together.
- Steep the coffee overnight in the fridge. (This works best so you have something ready in the AM when you really need it.)
- Strain the coffee liquid. The best way for straining is to use cheese cloth
- Pour extra cold brew to a new jar for storage OR share with coworkers.
- Enjoy right away OR add ice for some iced coffee.
