Nothing says happiness in the holiday season like a great cup of coffee. I made this video right after rolling out of bed on Christmas morning... all y'all who make fun of me for wearing a suit and tie to the coffee conventions, here you can see me all bleary-eyed wearing my zipper-hoodie and Seahawks shirt. That's organic Daniel there.
In this video I took some medium-high grown Bourbon coffee from El Salvador and roasted it just past second crack. I'm serving it to a big crowd of people (sisters and parents and various suitors of said sisters, natch), so I chose a medium roast for this coffee. It's a versatile bean and could go darker or lighter, but in my experience this style of bean at this level of roast is a real crowd pleaser.
I just had a cup of it while I was waiting for the video to upload, and it's really sweet and chocolatey. Remember... theory is great, but in the end, coffee should taste good!
Happy holidays to everyone. I hope your day is merry and bright.
