Hey Coffee Fans,
I’m Jonathan, Propeller’s Head Roaster, and this is my Discovery Collection.
I’m going to be keeping it updated with the coffees in our lineup that I’m actually drinking day-to-day. This one’s for the coffee nerds, so you might need a few pieces of gear to follow along with me exactly, but I’m going to try and keep it accessible with some alternate brewing options too.
#1 - Ace Espresso
Ever since I started in coffee, as a barista, I’ve started almost every day with a cappuccino. When you work at a cafe, the first thing you do each day is dial in your espresso. Once you think you’ve got your straight shot nailed, you make a cappuccino to make sure it’s tasting the way it should in milk.
I don’t have to open the cafe any more, but I’ve kept the habit. This is what you’ll find me sipping while I warm up the roaster, or set up the morning’s cupping.
If you don’t have an espresso machine, aeropress, or moka pot at home, Ace Espresso also works great as a drip coffee.
#2 - Guatemala San Gerardo
Once I’m settled in and my morning cappuccino is an hour or so in the rear-view, I generally settle into a rhythm with a small cup of drip coffee at hand to sip on while I work, going through two or three small cups over the course of a couple of hours. At work, I’m often using this as a chance to do a bit of informal QA, drinking whatever is on filter in the cafe. Right now, my favourite coffee in the drip rotation is this great Guatemalan selection. It’s complex and caramelly in a light, balanced way that makes it easy to drink a few cups of.
At home or at the office, I think it’s a great idea to have a coffee like this on hand that’s easy to brew and takes well to low-effort brewing styles like auto-drip, french press, or basic aeropress recipes, that you can quickly throw on during a quick work break. With the aeropress, you can brew a small cup with 10-15g of coffee in about 2 minutes. With the other two, get yourself a good thermal carafe and you’re set for the morning after one batch.
#3 - Organic Peru Valle Inca
The back half of my lunch break is a great opportunity for me to spend a bit more time and do a careful, single-cup brew. I’ll often use this as a chance to have a cup of something a bit more “fun” - like this washed-processed Organic Peru Valle Inca.
This is a super-sweet, floral/fruit-packed coffee that takes a bit more care to brew, but makes a fantastic pourover, or aeropress.
And that’s it! Like a lot of people, I find I need to cut off caffeine sometime around mid afternoon to be 100% confident of a good night’s sleep. So that’s about all I can fit into a day of dedicated professional coffee drinking.
If you enjoy this pack and joining me on this daily coffee adventure, be sure to let us know.
