Cowboy Coffee Done Right (ft. Cat & Cloud Coffee)

Campfire coffee, cowboy coffee, call it what you will. There is something iconic about a gritty, scalding cup of coffee when waking up in nature. Whether brewing for a bunch, or going ultralight with a couple of friends, here’s a breakdown of the brew methods you can count on in the backcountry: Cowboy Coffee | Ideal for large groups when you have room to spare. 1.5 Cups of Coffee to 2 Gallons Water. French Press | When room is no problem and you’re serving 5 or so people, get a large, plastic French Press. 1 Gram Coffee to 12 Mils Water for a bold cup. Moka Pot | Show off with espresso-like coffee and dress it up with French-Press-frothed milk for a poor man’s campfire cappuccino. Aeropress | Dial in great coffee for 1-2 people, following recipes from Aeroprecipe.com. Steeped Coffee | Take all the fuss and equipment out of the picture with Steeped Coffee bags and enjoy compostable, single-serve coffee without sacrificing for weight.

About Caffeine & Deconstructing Decaf (ft. Counter Culture Coffee)

For some reason, decaf seems to be a bit of a polarizing topic in the coffee world, with many adhering to the mantra “Death Before Decaf” proudly. Some go so far to get this tattooed to their bodies. I’m here to dispel that nonsense. Coffee can, and should, be enjoyed for more than just a delivery device for caffeine. In this month’s episode, we talk about caffeine and deconstruct decaf to help shed some light on the ‘why’s’ and ‘how’s’ of caffeine-free coffee. There are surely hundreds of excellent decafs out there, but Slow Motion Decaf from Counter Culture Coffee in North Carolina is a standout. I highly recommend you pick up a bag so you can enjoy your coffee well into the evening without compromising your bedtime.

Decoding the Bag: Single Origin vs. Coffee Blends

From Cape Town, South Africa, we’re featuring the ridiculously delicious Black Honey Blend coffee of Truth Coffee Roasting (twice featured as one of the worlds best coffee shops by The Telegraph). This is the first coffee blend we’ve featured, and boy is it a special one! It showcases an excellent washed-process heirloom coffee from Ethiopia Yurgacheffe that brews beautifully alongside a honey-process Pacas from El Salvador Comasagua. If you’re able to get your hands on a bag for this episode, I highly recommend you brew it in an Aeropress—a recipe I got directly from one of their talented roasters! Inverted Aeropress: 18g Coffee 210g Water @80°C (176°F) Bloom: 50g for 30 seconds Begin extraction at 03:30 Total time: 04:00 Minutes Being that this is our first coffee blend on the show, we’re diving into what a coffee blend is and how it compares to single origin coffee, which has accounted for all of our other featured coffees thus far. Tune in! P.S. We’re taking a week off from the podcast to review our first five episodes and get ready for more to come. We hope you don't’ miss us too much!

Decoding the Bag: Single Origin vs. Coffee Blends

Coffee in Waves (ft. Form & Function Coffee)

We’re drinking Ethiopia Limu from Form & Function Coffee, located in Boise, Idaho, this week as we tackle the modern history of coffee and how it can help us distinguish between, and better choose, our coffee shops. This week, I’m keeping things simple and brewing it in a standard drip coffee pot. No ‘fancy’ hand pour or press needed! That said, it’s still important to get a couple things right. First, I used a medium grind setting to freshly grind my beans just before brewing. I also followed the golden cup ratio for standard coffee brew, which is 1:18 or one gram of coffee for every 18 ml of water. I brewed 6 cups or roughly 1420ml of water, and so ground 79 grams of coffee to brew. Last week we talked about what defines specialty coffee. This week, we tackle how to find specialty grade coffee, so you know you’re enjoying the best coffee possible, whether at home or at the cafe. The trick? Understanding a little bit of coffee history.

What's So Special about 'Specialty' (ft. Jubilee Roasting Co.)

Enjoy a cup of Peru El Huayacan from Jubilee Roasting Company this weekend as we talk about Specialty Coffee and what makes it so special in the first place. I brewed it in a Chemex, which is a favorite pour-over method of mine for its clarity. If you have a Chemex and want to follow along, I brewed 46g of medium coarse Peru El Huayacan with 700ml of hot water, just off boil. I let the coffee bloom in 150ml for 45 seconds before adding another 300ml of water. At a minute and 45 seconds I added the remaining 250ml of water, pulling the filter and ending the brew at a cumulative 4 minutes. In simplest terms, Specialty Coffee refers to coffee that receives a specific score when being graded by professional tasters. In Episode 03, we dive into how those scores are given, and what they mean in a broader sense. Listen wherever you get your podcasts, and learn to enjoy your coffee more!

What's So Special about 'Specialty' (ft. Jubilee Roasting Co.)

Tasting Fundamentals: Aroma and Taste (ft. 81301 Coffee Inc.)

Hopefully, Episode 01 (Conscientious Tasting) inspired you to be a little more present with your coffee and begin paying attention to your senses as you enjoy your cup. It’s a critical first step in enjoying your coffee more. Episode 02 (Aroma and Taste) is all about providing some tools and language to begin describing the key attributes your coffee has on display, using memory as a reference point as well as the Coffee Flavor Wheel. In Episode 02, we enjoy a cup of Sumatra from 81301 Coffee Inc. in Durango, CO. This independent coffee roaster and cafe is pretty close to home for me. This coffee, which I’m told was shade-dried on patios for a cleaner flavor, is super bright and acidic with lemongrass and a hint of peppercorn if you look for it. I brewed it in an AeroPress, a nifty hand-brew method that is super portable and yields very rich and tasty coffee. I referenced a recipe from the 2018 Portuguese AeroPress Champion, called “Love me some acid”, due to the brightness of t...

Tasting Fundamentals : Conscientious Tasting (ft. Dillanos Coffee Roasters)

Between work or school, friends or family, netflix, podcasts, commutes, and everything else whizzing through our lives at a given moment, it can be hard to slow down and consider our coffee. But when we think about how it feels on our tongue, how it smells, how it tastes, how it lingers, and how that all plays into our preferences, we start unlocking our potential to appreciate coffee. Besides not actually paying attention to our coffee, another major hurdle for many of us enjoying coffee is actually drinking QUALITY coffee. We’ll define that in a later episode, but if you want to join me fully on this journey, you can buy the featured coffee of the week ahead of each episode and get it in time to sip alongside me come Saturday morning, or whenever you’re able to tune in. I’m working hard to find exciting specialty coffee from quality roasters. Subscribe to our newsletter and follow along at https://www.beanstalkpodcast.com/
