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.

How to Grind Coffee with a Blender

Teasia coffee beans

Using a blender to grind your coffee can be a good alternative if you don’t have access to a coffee grinder. Although some blenders have the “grinder” option you still need to proceed with caution. If you don’t grind the beans enough, you won’t get the most benefit of the bean. But if you grind too much you risk burning the beans’ natural oils with the heating blades, making the coffee taste bitter.

Another important tip to remember is to only grind what you will be using. Coffee will lose its freshness and flavor 30 minutes after being ground because of the exposure to oxygen.  This being said, you will need to blend in small spurts. Our Brazil Fazenda roast is smooth, has light acidity, mild and buttery with hints of hazelnut and cocoa that balance the light and sweet berry tones.

Instructions

  1. Set your blender on high or “grinder” speed.
  2. Scoop in ¾ of a cup of coffee beans at a time (remember to only blend what you need).
  3. Blend until you have the consistency desired.

Pro Tip:

Depending on you preferred brewing method is wat will dictate the kind of grind you will need:

GRIND METHOD
Coarse French Press
Medium Coarse Chemex
Medium Machine Drip
Medium Fine  Siphon
Fine Aeropress Espresso
Turkish Turkish Coffee
