This weekend, after holiday sicknesses had passed and grinding, brewing and just below boiling point temperatures were researched, Case tried out his Christmas gift. We’ve been missing the tastes and much of the spirit of Cape Town since our summer visit, and one of those was the delightfully tasty and small coffees after meals.
The Hario Woodneck Coffe drip pot is easy to use and made delicious coffee. I don’t always like the smell of coffee, although coming home many hours later the house had a cozy, sweet coffee scent still wafting in the air which I liked very much. I debated between the popular Chemex Wood Collar Glass Coffee Maker but after reading reviews settled on the Hario, which felt better suited for us.
The beans are from Bird Rock Coffee Roasters. We tried the El Injerto Maragogype from Guatemala and have yet to try the Kenyan Lennette beans. Both kindly recommended when I purchased and explained my lack of knowledge on coffee beans. The hand grinder worked great and takes up little space.
The kettle that is suggested for perfect pouring with the Hario is absolutely gorgeous and lightweight. The old kettle that was just a temporary replacement to a ruined one years ago is happily gone.
Cheers to small cups of coffee and sometimes slow mornings or evenings.
