PeterAsher Coffee – Preview

22 Nov

John Herriott at PeterAsher Coffee & Tea got in contact with me two weeks ago, offering coffee samples. He linked me to their website, which is insanely misrepresentative of their knowledge and product. I was, to say the least, very sceptical of what I was to receive. The site says nothing about any of the coffees, at all, except for a random (and irrelevant) blurb.

Thankfully, this is one of those cases where I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box. There was lots of information on the coffees, nice clean proper packaging, and some info on relations with their farmers.

Here is a quick video of the un-boxing and some updates:

All of which had detailed info on everything down to the processing and drying. Nice! I look forward to cupping these up this week.

Also, stay tuned for the Transcend Coffee full detailed posts.

Happy coffee,

The last few posts have talked a little about the Canadian Barista Championships this year. So, without further delay, I had to get a hold of some Transcend Coffee, they held down the first and second place spots!

After some dialogue with James @transcendcoffee, I received three bags of coffee: Two of the “Santa Lucia” espresso and one of the “Genesis” filter coffee (both from Costa Rica).

Here is a quick overview, the video is short I promise!
