Coffee

I like to track the beer I drink with Untappd and wanted something similar for Coffee. Nothing exists, so I keep track of the coffees I drink here. These are mostly just coffees I buy by-the-bag and have at home. I drink a lot of coffee while out but I don’t keep track of that.

Generally purchased whole-bean, ground fresh with a burr grinder, and brewed with a french press or pour-over. Sorted with most recent at the top.

Just Coffee - Just Bikes

Just Coffee - Bike Fuel

  • This is my go-to for making cold brew coffee.
    • Costco sells a 2lb bag for $15. Insane value and great coffee.

Just Coffee - ¡Arriba!

  • Such a great breakfast blend that we bought another bag!

Sip of Hope - Papua New Guinea Peaberry

Colectivo Coffee - Blue Heller

  • One of my favorite blends and one of my early introductions to high end coffee.

January

Just Coffee - Laos Peaberry

  • Very interested to see what another Peaberry coffee will taste like. I love the Tanzanian Peaberry from EVP…and it will be interesting to see how the growing region affects the flavor.

Sip of Hope - Conversation Starter

  • Pretty much the perfect blend. So well balanced, drinkable, and delicious.

Sip of Hope - Mexico Nayarit Natural

2020 Recap

  • I drank a lot of fantastic coffee in 2020. One of the few upsides to forced work-from-home was that I drank a lot more coffee at home than usual. As a result, I was able to order more and try more coffees than usual. Here’s a photo of all the coffees I had in 2020.

December

EVP Coffee - Brazilian

Ancora - Holiday Blend

  • Reminds me of coffee at grandma’s house. It’s a blend of both medium and darkly roasted beans and unfortunately I’m picking up some mild burnt tastes. The holiday spice is there, but it’s a bit too dark for me.

November

Sip of Hope - Conversation Starter

  • Sip of Hope has started roasting their own coffee! The previous iteration was an awesome blend roasted by Dark Matter Coffee but I was super excited to give this a try. Their debut coffee is a medium roast from Mexico. Very good! Earthy with robust and roasty flavors, not much sweetness or fruit. Great in a french press. No bitterness or acidity. Could drink this all day long.

EVP Coffee - Tanzanian Peaberry

  • A personal local favorite that I haven’t had for quite a while. Holds up well. Bright and fruity without being acidic - has a nice roasty flavor as well.

Ruby Coffee - Gachatha (Kenya)

October

Just Coffee Wake the Flock Up

  • A perfectly drinkable blend of coffee and roast types. A little uneven at times.

Just Coffee Revolution

  • A bit too dark for me. Tastes over-roasted and kills some of the flavors, but fans of dark roast coffees will like this.

September

Madcap Party

Madcap Luis Reinoso

August

Wonderstate Driftless

I’ll call this a classic diner blend. It’s a little bit darker than I would like - has an ever-so-slight burn taste.

Wonderstate Guatemala Adenisa
