Jose’s Teasia Coffee-A-Day Tasting- Day 9 with Mexican Chiapas (Pour Over)

Mexican Chiapas.jpg

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.

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.
