Curve Hardwork Felicidad Roasted Coffee
A strong, dark roast
Whole coffee beans from the mountains of Benguet, the Curve Hardwork Felicidad Roasted Coffee is roasted on demand, and has a beautiful bitter flavor.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Part of the Curve Hardwork Series, these Philippine coffee beans are bloomed in Benguet, at an altitude of 1,300 meters above sea level. It’s a strong, dark roast coffee, with hints of orange and pili nuts, and prominent notes of cinnamon coming through.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
Curve Hardwork Felicidad Roasted Coffee comes in whole beans that are roasted on demand, and will need to be ground. A general rule: the finer the grind size, the more extraction you get. The coarser the grind, the less extraction. Finer ground coffee is closely packed, and will take water a longer time to pass through, resulting in an extraction with a more intense flavor. Finer grounds are great for pour-over brewers. Coarser ground coffee, on the other hand, means water will mover quicker between the grounds, extracting only some of the flavor. This is good for brewers like the French Press, where it takes more time to get a perfect brew.
