This recipe is best for Any Central American single origin, medium roast beans, speciality graded

This is a recipe for those who are not morning people, like myself. Central American coffees are characterized by their notes of chocolate and nuts and the French Press is the perfect tool to extract those flavors. The result is a full bodied cup of coffee with a heavy mouthfeel, an intense combination to start the day with. Let me have a cup of this coffee and then you can talk to me! Also good for sharing in silence. Oh and add some jazz tunes. Enjoy!

What makes this recipe so special?

This recipe is based on cuppings.
Whenever I have had a favorite coffee on a cupping table I love to sip that same coffee straight from the cupping bowl and the coffee flavors explode.
