Sun’s out, new brewing toy out! ☀️😎
.
After last night’s moka pot trials using the Varia Brewer from @variabrewing , I decided to try it for pourover this morning. I’m happy to say the pourover cone worked better than I expected. Although the rib design looks similar to a popular Japanese brewer, it doesn’t behave the same way and that’s actually good (for me). Simply put, it’s slower flowrate means a more even extraction... something I always look for in pourover cones.
.
Recipe: 18g to 288g, 93C water, filter grind, 1:3 bloom 30s, followed by a slow and low circular pour until ~120g, another until ~200g, and a final pour to target weight, TBT~3:00. Coffee used was a Nordic roast Guatemalan from @lippekaffe x @beanbrosco ground on @kinugrinders M47.

A big box arrived yesterday thanks to @variabrewing 🙏🏻😄
.
In case you haven’t heard about the Varia brewer, it’s an extremely versatile brewing system which can easily be configured for Pourover, French Press, Moka Pot, Cold Brew, Tea or even a Kettle for boiling water! How awesome is that? I’m really looking forward to implementing the Varia brewer as part of my daily brewing rotation. ☕️☕️☕️
.
For more details and to order the Varia brewer, pls visit @variabrewing

Coffee is 98% water... and I’ve been happily using Aquacode coffee brewing water for several weeks now. I can taste an overall improved sweetness, brightness and a clarity of flavour notes in my coffees. If you’re looking for a better (and healthier) brew water alternative than what you’re currently using, give Aquacode a try.
.
Some relevant info about Aquacode coffee brewing water: Aquacode is 100% pure natural, extracted from pollution-free deep sea water and has 72 minerals and trace minerals. The liquid concentrate comes in small packets which easily dilutes into your distilled water. There is no worry about any undissolved solids or having to shake your water mixture before use. You can even choose your preferred dilution level by using their handy chart card. This is perfect for fine tuning your brew water specially for competitions. Aquacode was developed through the research of international experts and coffee champions. It’s also been successfully used in coffee competitions by several champion baristas with great results. If you have any questions about Aquacode, please send me a DM and I’ll try my best to answer.

Special thanks again to my buddies at @broken.gooseneck for sending some revised and now properly fitting dosing covers for my @kinugrinders collection. Check the last photo with a custom Kinu logo ftw!
.
Kinu owners, if you want to prevent bean bits popcorning out of your grinder or simply want to add a splash of colour, these custom covers are what you need. Highly recommended for the M47 Traveler since it has a shorter body👌🏼🤩

An unconventional shape perhaps, but I can assure you the Tetra Drip by @munieq.jp brews very similar to the Kōno. It’s also extremely convenient to use outdoors or travelling. It has a stable flowrate which lets you extract a nicely balanced taste profile from your coffees.
.
The weakest link while travelling is usually your grinder, make sure you have an excellent one like the @kinugrinders M47 Traveler (pictured) or M47 Phoenix. I used to even bring my M47 Classic around but it was just too heavy.

Now brewing @gardellicoffees Ethiopia Shawntawene Village from @sanscoffeeco

A great start to the weekend... First brew and the tasting notes are definitely on point with this Ethiopia Shawntawene Village from @gardellicoffees x @sanscoffeeco Lavender is what you immediately notice, followed by a nice combo of strawberry, raspberry and lime with a lingering Assam tea note. 👌🏼☕️😋

SteepShot in action! The fastest coffee brewer invented using only the pressure of hot water.
.
Next time I’ll try using a timer since the split-second delay from opening the release valve to pressing the remote shutter made me miss the initial burst of brewed coffee exiting the @steepshotcoffee Now brewing a Guatemala from @lippekaffe x @beanbrosco
.
Note: This is an early prototype unit which is functionally the same but aesthetically different from the final production model.

Tetra Drip brew of Ecuador La Chorora Hybrid chosen by @jeon_jooyeon for ICONS by @cuppingroomhk This brew using 15g to 240g 93C, Kinu Phoenix at 3+8, tbt ~3:00. Intense sangria and passionfruit notes in this washed hybrid makes it taste like a natural 👌🏼☕️💧

Kōno Meimon... an oldie but still one of my favourite pourover brewer. Hoping to add some of their coloured versions as well. Does anyone know if the material for the coloured Kōno are different from the clear ones? 🤔🤔🤔

Trust your instincts and keep brewing... In this case, I forgot to start the timer until after blooming (yes, you can easily know when ~30s have passed). Other times my scale has gone to sleep (Lo Batt) midway through a brew. Situations like these are a welcome surprise and shouldn’t leave you flustered. In fact, I often travel without using a timer and sometimes don’t use my scale except to weigh my coffee.
.
This brew using Kenya Nyeri AA brought to me by @coffeeandtales x @roastwork A sweet and juicy cup with notes of red plum and mandarin.

Not as easy as it looks... the Delter is NOT an Aeropress and definitely doesn’t brew like one. For now, my go to recipe is yielding pretty good cups, but I’m still experimenting. Pls let me know your personal experiences using the Delter and recipe if possible.
.
Here’s my recipe: 20g to 200g 96C water, filter grind size, ~70g pulsed bloom 35s, ~130g slow press until 1:35-1:40, add 20g bypass water and stir well. I find that by adding some bypass water it helps give depth and clarity.
