Bean Brewding’s Flavour of the Month for May 2015. This month we hosted a journalist from Singapore on a special Brisbane coffee tour on behalf of Tourism and Events Queensland. We also headed to Cafe Biz 2015 … so it was coffees galore this month … almost too many to recall. Anyway, our flavourite coffees this month were:
This was a superb single origin roasted by Industry Beans served up as a piccolo. Joyce, the Singapore journalist loved the fruity flavour of the coffee. I asked her which fruit and she answered, ‘Durian.’ Say what? We’ve been drinking coffee for a long time and that’s the first time Durian was the fruit of note. You never stop enjoying the pleasures of drinking coffee with others!
We met Nat at his Cafe Biz stall. Here’s a guy that is passion personified when it comes to talking coffee. He recommended we taste his new blend as black and white. He has worked tirelessly for months to create a ‘seasonal’ blend with coffee beans that are always available. This is a super blend all the way from Byron Bay that works superbly as an espresso, aeropresso or with milk.
Colombian Popayan Cauca
A catch up on our upcoming Brisbane coffee tour led us to one bean’s latest find – Blacksmith at Mt Gravatt Central. There are strong connections to Bear Bones Espresso and its not just the coffee on offer. The Colombian was beautifully prepared by Brittany as a Chemex. It was delightful sipping in the warmth of another great suburban coffee shop that has clean lines and friendly staff.
