It's time for an update on this years Yawn Advent Calendar 

If you missed the first post from the first 4 days, you can read that here






Day 5 
Costa Rica - Honey Preparation

Profile - Fruity, Apricot and Chocolate Notes
Roast - Medium 


The brew 
V60 
1x packet (9g)
Recommended brew - 220ml water
20ml bloom, 2 minute 30 total brew time.

This was a really enjoyable coffee, super sweet, super fruity. Absolutely delicious! 




Day 6
Kenya Blue Moutain

Profile - Full-bodied, Rich, Winey 
Roast - Medium 


Apparently I didn't take a photo of the coffee I made (I mean it was bound to happen eventually right?)

The brew 
V60 
1x packet (9g)
Recommended brew - 220ml water
20ml bloom, 2 minute 30 total brew time.


This was also a super enjoyable coffee, super full-bodied, but no overwhelming acidity.




Day 7 
Monsooned Malabar 

Profile - Smooth, Spicy, Sharp Acidity 
Roast - Dark 

Origin - Colombia 


The brew 
V60 
1x packet (9g)
Recommended brew - 220ml water
20ml bloom, 2 minute 30 total brew time.



I was super excited for this one, every single Monsoon Malabar coffee I've had, has been great. 
This one wasn't as expected (not to say I didn't enjoy it, it was still a great cup of coffee) it wasn't as smoky or spicy as I was hoping. It was a bit too mellow for a Monsoon coffee. However it was still very much enjoyable. 




Day 8 
Volcanic Mocha 

Profile - Almost Sweet, Pungent Full Bodied 
Roast - Light, Medium, Dark 

Origin - Ethiopia, Java 



The Brew
Mokka Pot
1 x 9g sachet


My at home latte art needs some work. 

This came out as a super balanced and smooth espresso. It mixed well with milk, and was totally enjoyable as a latte. 




Stay tuned for the next instalment of the Yawn Advent Calendar.
