Did We Do It?

A lot happened in May, and blogging everyday was certainly mostly one of them!
Throughout all the month, the different upload time, the general brain fog, the forgetting to push the publish button and forgetting 5 times in a row (actually happened at the end of the month oops) and a lot of breakdowns later - did we do it? Eh, mostly .. I'm proud of how far I managed to get through, and that's what counts right? 

But now it's over what's going to be happening in June?

I'm going to be taking a lovely 1 week break (ish) from blogging - and here's what blog posts to be expecting in June

- One Click Coffee Box
- Dog & Hat
- Untold Coffee (THE RETURN!!!)
- Birmingham Coffee Festival
- ECOcoffee

Plus maybe a few extra little posts 

I hope you enjoyed Blogging Everyday In May, all 23 days of it, and maybe next year we'll actually complete it (third times the charm right?)

Moonroast - Rwanda Karisimbi

A company that has been taking the coffee industry by storm recently, is Moonroast - and like many coffee companies, it was definitely on my list to try. 

So when Dan sent me a message on Instagram asking if he could send me a sample of coffee, how could I say no?

They very kindly sent me a 100g sample of their Rwanda, Karisimbi 
and boy, it's pretty freaking delicious 

The beans - 
Rwanda Karisimbi
Region: Gicumbi, Northern Province 
Farm: Karisimbi 
Variety: 100% Red Bourbon
Process: Washed
Altitude: 2000-2200 metres above sea levels
Medium Roast
Taste Notes: Apricot, Orange and Florals, with hints of Vanilla 

V60 Brew

17g of Coffee
280ml Water
25 second bloom with 40g of water 
40g first pour, 120g second pour, 120 third pour
Total brew time 3 minutes

When brewing this coffee, I could smell the floral hints coming through, like the smell the first taste you get is the super florally mouthfeel and gorgeous fruity hints, with some citrus acidity this is a super delicious coffee, as it cooled, you definitely get more citric and floral mouthfeel along with the citric acidity. 
This was definitely an amazing coffee to start my love relationship with Moonroast with - and a coffee from Moonroast was included in the May One Click Coffee subscription box, so look forward to that post next month
