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!

Jose’s Teasia Coffee-A-Day Tasting- Day 2 with Brazil Fazenda (Regular Brew)

brazil fazenda review beach

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)

coffee review bali blue moon

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: 

Instructions
  1. Grind our Teasia Single Origin Coffee Beans into a coarse grind.
  2. Combine the ground coffee and water in the jar.

  6. Pour extra cold brew to a new jar for storage OR share with coworkers.
  7. Enjoy right away OR add ice for some iced coffee.
