As you may have guessed, Colombia Fondo Paez is not only one of our favorite seasonal coffees but our longest producer partnership, which we wrote about here. We've put together a single-serve home brew recipe that brings out the lovely florality, tamarind, and pleasant sweetness.
Here's how we brewed it in the lab:
17 grams of Fondo Paez, ground medium-fine
255 grams of water at 205 degrees
Hario V60 brewer with filter
1. Add fresh, ground coffee to a rinsed filter and gently shake to make a level bed of coffee.
2. Bloom with 75g of water, fully saturating the coffee bed. Wait one minute.
3. Slowly pour in a thin, gentle, circular stream in the center of the ground bed until 255 grams.
4. Total brew time should be between 3:00-3:15 seconds.
