My wife is nothing short of an undeserved blessing from God. If you’re a coffee nerd or like a good story, read on for more. ☕️☕️☕️☕️ #coffee #java #cafe #beanjuice #technivorm
I do not write to boast or brag.... but my wife loves me, and may even know me better than I know myself. How do I know? Because she got me a Technivorm Moccamaster as an early birthday gift. Here I am the former barista who thought he knew all things coffee, but nope. She beat me on this one. I had never heard of this machine before, but she has one in her office and knew that it made an amazing brew as confirmed by numerous reviews. Well, I did some research and apparently it’s THE holy grail of drip coffee for the following nerdy reasons that the proper coffee snobs among you will appreciate.
Specialty Coffee Associations around the world have certified it for the following: ☕️ It brews at a consistent temp of 200 with a variable of like 4 degrees on either side. ☕️ It uses a separate monitor to maintain a carafe temp of 175-185. ☕️ It brews within the “Specialty Coffee Association” recommended 8 minute window to achieve a consistent extraction rate of right around 23%. Apparently, coffee aficionados say 18%-22% is the sweet spot. So its brews are slightly on the bolder side without being bitter. It’s dang good.
I usually drink Illy Bold Roast via French press and this brought out a very different flavor profile than when I drink it full blast from the press.
No doubt, it’s THE machine to use with high quality, unique, sustainably sourced, single origin, fair trade beans. So, if you have a favorite roast, comment below or DM me. Or just come over and let’s do coffee!
