Random Brew Recipe: 67g coffee / 1 kg water, 3 minute brew time.
Brew Method: Clever
Actual Recipe: 20g coffee, 300g water at 198F
Coffee: Costa Rica Los Mangos from New Harvest Coffee Roasters
Notes notes notes: This is the first time the RBG has come up with my actual, standard brew parameters. Putting Los Mangos through the Clever yielded a nice cup; round, with some stonefruit sweetness as it cooled. I’ve had great success with this coffee as a double-brew over ice through the Chemex – it is probably the nicest iced coffee I’ve had so far this summer. As a Clever brew it probably could have been ground a bit coarser (or perhaps the grinder burrs need replacement), as the draw down was almost two minutes.
I’d give it an 7/10. I would be pleased to have been served it in a shop.
