As we mentioned in a previous post, the Big Central Regional Barista and Brewer's Cup Competition took place in Minneapolis over the weekend. The Big Central is comprised of the North Central and South Central regions. For each region, there are six ranked Barista and Brewer's Cup winners. If you have some spare time, you can rewatch the performances here.

Yesterday was the beginning of a regional barista and brewer's competition weekend in Minneapolis. At first thought, many customers don't realize that coffee has competitions. Their next question is often, "So what do they do? Make coffee?"

1. Remember Portola's wafflegato? Last time I wrote that variations on that theme were expected. Indeed, there have been two so far. See below for the recipes.

I really enjoy trying new coffees because I can justify using all the coffee tools that occupy my kitchen. So today I'll be writing about my efforts with AJ Coffee Co's Fazenda Rodomunho Natural Brasil. I don't think I've had many single origin from Brazil but the one's that I have tried I did enjoy. The flavor profile of this coffee is described as "Complex, rich, cocoa, nuts, spice and layered" on AJ Coffee Co's website and "Mild chocolate base notes with cloves, anise spices" on Coffee Kind.
I started this coffee in the Eva Solo at 30g for 500ml ground at two turns from zero in the Lido and steeped for four min. The coffee tasted good but slightly un-separated if that makes sense. It tasted of dull bakers chocolate.

I had a rather busy yet unproductive weekend. I drove around with the family getting a few errands done in San Francisco, and took a few longer drives to go out to a few places to eat. All of that car time really adds up, especially when a drive that normally should take 15 minutes, takes closer to 45 minutes. However, that is beside the point.
What all of this driving made me think about is how on every occasion I passed by some really great cafes, but did not enter one. Not because I wasn't craving coffee, but because I was and thought to myself. Hmm why am I going to pay x amount of money when I can make something as good if not better at home. Really at the end of the day all I want is the roasters beans to play around with myself.

Saturday is my favorite day of the week because it is the beginning of the weekend and usually I have the most time during this day. It is even better this saturday as I was stocked with Roaste's coffee. Because I'm feeling well cafeinated and I feel that I can tackle some project today. The recent arrival of the ebay Olympia Cremina is stealing the spot light of most other coffee projects that I have in the pipeline.
