One Click Coffee Box 6

Guess who's back with a super late One Click Coffee Box blog post. 


Yet again, we had two gorgeous coffees from this box. One Click never seems to disappoint and after 6 months of One Click I am LOVING it. 

Box Number 6

Roundhill Coffee - Ethiopia
Crafthouse - Colombia 



Also in this box was some yummy cookies from Rosette Bakery (heck they were good)




Round Hill Roastery

In 2012 Eddie Twitchett the founder of Round Hill Roastery was rather enthusiastic home brewer, dreaming of one day roasting coffee. While working in hospitality in Bath, every break would be spent sampling coffee in one of the many great shops in the city. During this time the dream started to become reality. Starting out in a small industrial building no bigger than a garage Eddie was roasting and selling for the Bath farmers market every week.
Quickly the business grey and Round Hill gained it's first wholesale partners. Round Hill is now a small team and we have moved to a larger roastery but we keep that individual and personal feeling. We are working more closely with the farmers we have built relationships with over the years, taking time to make visits to the farms to further our education and to also source new coffees.
At Round Hill we respect our coffee's journey from farm to cup. Our coffee arrives as green beans - the farmer's finished product - and we careful to preserve and compliment the hard work already put into each bean.
Our aim is to source the best seasonal harvests, only selecting small lots from independent growers. We roast to highlight the dynamic flavours naturally found within our coffees.
We test-roast each coffee and allow it to rest. It is then brewed in a variety of ways to ensure maximum flavour and quality. Origin, variety and process are all key factors in determining each coffee's individual roast profile - with taste the central focus of everything we do. We focus on each coffee's unique character and roast them to highlight its dynamic flavours and sweetness. 
Pink Bags are roasted for espresso brewing. 
Blue Bags are roasted for filter brewing.




The beans:

Uraga Samii - Ethiopia
Region - Guji 
Process - Fully washed - Irael Degfa's washing station
Altitude - 2400 MASL
Taste Notes - Lemon, Stone Fruit, Tropical and Black Tea



The brew:

V60 
17g of Coffee
250ml of Water 
30 Second Bloom with 40ml of Water

This coffee gave off some insane crisp apple acidity vibes, it was super delicious, super smooth, with a definite stone fruit taste as it cooled. 
Every which way I brewed it, it was insanely incredible to taste - V60, Aeropress and French Press, they all didn't disappoint.

Craft House Coffee 

It all began with an obsession to make the perfect brew. After many years and many more cups of coffee the obsession went far beyond the brewing method. We wanted to know: where did this coffee come from? What happens during the roasting process? What gives the coffee its characteristics? Its important to think, not just how, but what actually makes the perfect coffee. What combination of elements, hard work and time has given you this product? This obsession is what set us on the mission to better understand the coffee industry. Thus Craft House Coffee was born.
Roasting is one of the most important aspects of making amazing coffee. Once the beans leave the hands of the farmers and make the long journey to the UK, it must be delicately and precisely roasted to perfection. Gone are the days of over roasting and inconsistent batches. Although each and every coffee batch is tested with microscopic precision, you can rest assured that using the power of technology the level on quality and consistency stays the same. 
Our roasting style is light yet well developed. Under roasted or underdeveloped coffee can taste grassy, weak and generally terrible. It damages grinder burrs and is very tough for you to properly extract. Our espresso roasted coffee's verge ever so gently into the medium range to help preserve the underlining characteristics of the origin but help it break through milk based drinks. We are always looking to explore the potential of our beans through profiling. It's all part of the fun!

There were some super prominent floral aromas coming from this coffee, and the taste, phoar, super curranty/raisin tastes with a little dark muscovado sugar peeking through. Delicious through V60, and slightly more full bodied through an Aeropress brew this was an amazing coffee.
