Transcend Coffee – “Genesis”
Region: Lourdes de Naranjo, Costa Rica
Brewed with 19grams of coffee and 340mL water via a Clever Dripper device. The first few coffees I prepared were pour overs. This was a nice clean cup, good mouthfeel (though slightly thin), wine-y and mellow pear. The acidity structure was not as nice here as I expected, better on the french press (read on). Notes included: the aroma on this was delicious, spice and apples. Main body was that mellow pear/ melon. Clean finish.
Brewed with 26grams of coffee via Frieling. The biggest surprise here was the change in the acidity structure. I found a nice sparkling acidity here, which was snappy and citrus-like. I found more spice and cinnamon present as well. It was still relatively clean and it cooled a little better.
The overall cup was well balanced, great acidity, with a good nose and mellow, but sweet, main body.
