This is the second year Rev Coffee has created a Holiday Blend and it looks like they are planning on more in the future. I’m assuming this is because 2022 is in the middle of the branding.
The beans come from all over, Indonesia, Central, and South America.
The beans look like they have all roasted together or at least in the same style. It wasn’t like different roast styles are thrown in together.
If you are having relatives or friends over for the Holidays
this is a safe bet for everyone to find something they like about this brew.
Reviews & Brewing Ideas
Hario Switch ~ with 20 grams of beans medium grind to 300 grams of water at 198f or 92c.
Recipe & Process ~ First pour 120 grams of water, light stir, while on hold for 1 minute, 3 more pours of 60 grams of water on hold while pouring only.
Taste ~ Good creamy body, chocolate on the tongue, and slight citrus towards the end.
After Thoughts ~ Good Holiday blend when you have guests over for the holidays there’s something for everyone in the brews. Can’t wait to try these beans with a Moka pot or Aeropress.
Aeropress ~ Used 18 grams of coffee at a medium grind with 150 grams of water at 198f or 92c.
Recipe & Process Add 100 grams of water, then the coffee stir let bloom for 40 sec add to a total of 265 grams of water, let sit for a minute
Taste: Creamy body, slightly complex florals, caramel. Leaves a creamy coating in the mouth with almost golden raisins at the end.
After Thoughts: Very pleasant as of today this blend is not offered on the site, not sure why? Did bringing down the temp help to bring out subtler flavors?
