Hario Switch ~ 15 grams of beans with a medium grind and 240 grams of water at 200F or 93c.
Recipe & Process ~ First pour 80 grams of water for a 40-second hold with an easy stir, then 4 pours with 40 grams of water on hold for the pour and a stir on the last pour.
Taste surprising cinnamon flavors going down, as the brew cools there’s a toasted grain like oats or barley on the tip of the tongue and a tasty sweet spice finish.
After Thoughts ~ At the end, the grind bed was a little muddy maybe a courser grind next time. Not sure if a stronger cup like a Moka pot would work with these beans. I’ll stick with a pour-over for now.
