Ohio Coffee Swap - Mission Coffee Roasters

As well as taking part in Third Wave Wichteln (blog post coming soon) late last year, I did a few private swaps with some of the people from the Facebook group.
One particular swap I did was with a guy from Ohio, and I was super excited when those beans turned up on my door. 

I had been sent an 8oz (can't just weigh in grams, America??) bag of Mission Coffee Company from Colombus, Ohio.

Ipocoara, Brazil
Nilson Aguila
Varietal - Catuai 144
Process - Natural + Pulped Natural
Taste Notes - Cocoa, Graham Cracker, Cherry 

Now I'm not going to lie and tell you that I didn't have to Google what the hell a Graham Cracker was which apparently the UK equivalent is Digestives and Rich Tea biscuits combined .. Interesting

I've researched more into Mission Coffee Roasters, and it is definitely on my list of companies to order from again in the future.

"For the dreamers that become doers. For the explorers, the creatives and the storytellers. We learn and grow so you can experience great coffee all the time. We stand firm in our commitment to quality and excellence, from the farm to your cup. We devote ourselves to craftsmanship, collaboration and education."

Coffee is our daily adventure and you are invited.

I've brewed this coffee several times playing around with the recipe, and every single one comes out delicious, but I've finally found my favourite.

Brewed through a V60
24g of coffee
275ml of water
25 second bloom
2 minutes and 45 second full brew time

Every brew I made the result would be super chocolatey, the chocolate notes in this coffee is actually insane.

Through this specific brew -
Super dark intense cacao notes, with sour stone fruit undertones, very prominent fruity acidity, but so, so delicious.
I normally include the taste notes as it cools, but I'm not going to lie, it was always drunk before it even got the chance to cool down.

If you're looking to branch out with roasters around the world, I'd definitely recommend checking out Mission Coffee - I know I'm making an order very soon.
