In this blog post we look at another Round Hill coffee from Burundi called Mbirizi and we talk about drinking vessels for coffee. We also take things easy with a 1962 Blue Note soul-jazz record 'Elder Don' by Don Wilkerson
In this blog post we head back to the fine folks at PLOT coffee roasting this time looking at a Peruvian competition lot. We pair this with the Esbjörn Svennson Trio classic 'Tuesday Wonderland' from 2006
In this blog post we again spend some time with the folks at Assembly coffee roasters through their Bumbogo washed Rwandan coffee. We also talk about dialing in light roast coffee for espresso. This weeks album is 'The Grand Wazoo' from 1972 by Frank Zappa.
We take a bit of a different turn for the blog this week. Armed with a variety of coffee samples we look at the process of cupping. In addtion we look at the jazz of the 1954 classic 'Clifford Brown & Max Roach'
This week we look at all things natural. A natural Ethiophian coffee from the folks at Long and Short, and a slightly under the radar Blue-Note soul-jazz recording from Lou Donaldson: 'The Natural Soul'
In this blog post we go back to all things classic. The 1959 Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers 'Moanin', a triumph in early hard-bop. Along with a washed Yirgacheffe from the folks at PLOT coffee roasting.
In this blog post we go all experimental: a Colombian from relatively new London roaster PLOT with a rare varietal and an innovative processing. Paired with a free-avant-garde classic from Blue Note records: Andrew Hill - Point of Departure.
A look at the seminal meeting of Lester Young and Oscar Peterson on the 'Lester Young with the Oscar Peterson Trio' album. Along with a special coffee from the folks at Round Hill Roastery with their Spring Claude offering.
