Apo Natural Roasted Coffee yields flavor notes of spice, sugarcane, and lemon.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
Curve Hardwork Mt. Apo Natural 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 extract 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.
