Starting off day 8 of coffee tasting with a delectable Kenya AA single origin coffee beans roasted by Teasia. Here’s some history about the coffee: Kenya AA is considered to be one of the world’s best coffee beans – the area has a reputation for absolute excellence, especially because it lies near the region where coffee beans first originated. Grown on volcanic soils and high altitudes, beans grow slower allowing more time for flavor development and maturity.
I received this brew at the perfect time when it was raining and cold outside. The brew itself is really strong along with a strong citrus smell that I’m not a big fan of. I typically enjoy coffee that is creamier and sweet, which is why I’ve been recommending adding milk to coffee. After sipping this coffee, I was thinking that this would go great with a big breakfast platter with some eggs, pancakes, bacon, fruits, the works!
PRO TIP: If you’re a chocolate lover, you can always add some hot chocolate to coffee for a mocha!
Next week, we’re taking a trip to Mexico with Mexican Chiapas whole roasted beans.
For most of us, our day doesn’t start until we’ve had our cup of coffee. But some of us don’t have a coffee maker and that keeps us from getting our daily kick of caffeine in the morning!

Let’s dive into the making of coffee!
- Measure a tablespoon of coffee for one cup
- Grind your coffee on medium, it should end up looking like sand
- Place your filter on top of the coffee cup
- Pour a tiny amount of water on the grounds and let them sit for 30 seconds
- Pour half of the water slowly over the grounds (30 second duration)
- Pour the rest of the water in smaller increments (three or four)
- Toss the filter with the grounds
- There you have it! If you like, you can add creamer and sugar. But congrats on making your very own fresh cup of coffee!
Next time you find yourself waking up somewhere without a coffee maker, don’t worry. You can easily make your coffee if you just follow the steps above!
Pro Tip: If your coffee tastes too bitter, add more coffee. If it tastes too sour, reduce the amount of coffee you use.
