Brian started off by telling us the area that the coffee came from, and brewed the speciality beans in a Chemex (which he also showed us how to use properly!). After each coffee was done brewing we tried each coffee and talked about the flavor, moved on to the next one, then went back to the first one see how much the flavored had changed since the coffee had cooled down (this is seriously such an amazing process).
We also had the chance to try amazing milk chocolate with our coffee, and see how the flavor in the chocolate brought out the flavor of the coffee (yet again amazing).
It was a really fun experience learning about the coffee, where it came from, and the different flavors that can exist in certain coffee.
I want to take a moment to really thank Brian Clemens for being so kind and doing this coffee tasting (and interview he did with me as well for an article that I did on the US Barista Championship). It was truly a wonderful experience, and Scott and I enjoyed it so much.
Be back soon was another post of my daily life.
