Another Stumptown Coffee

I am getting close to finishing a bag of Columbia El Jordan. It was recommended to me as a very good French-press coffee. It is definitely a good coffee, very low on the acid, a mild flavor that lingers for a while. But I have had a troublesome time getting the brew right. Adjusting the temperature of the water, the steeping time, and the ground size, I have yet to get a cup that is just right. It is always a little sour or bitter or did not have full extraction.

Despite my troubles, it is a great morning coffee in my book. The low acidity makes it easy on the stomach, so is good if you have not eaten much. If you don’t care what I have to say about it, here is what they say it tastes like:

“Warm aromatics of nutmeg and cinnamon segue into mouth-watering flavors of satsuma orange and ripe blackberry which finish with notes of honey and brown sugar.”

Next I’ll be on to the Sumatra Gayo Mountain, I’ll let you know how it goes.
