Is My Coffee Too Acidic? Image

Is My Coffee Too Acidic?

quality

07.25.2013

The concept of acidity in coffee can be very confusing and we hear different questions all the time. All coffee is relatively low in acid. As a flavor note, acidity is what gives coffee its brightness and liveliness. Light roast coffees, like our Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, tend to have more pronounced acidity in this way, hence descriptive terms like "crisp." The longer the coffee is r…

Our bike delivery team is on the streets all year round in rain, snow, and blazing sun, racking up nearly 10,000 miles in the saddle each year. That dedication and years of experience made us an obvious choice for the City of Minneapolis when they were looking for a partner for a new bike safety initiative. This summer, look for a series of arty ads in bus kiosks reminding cyclists and drive…

We spend a lot of time working for fairness and justice all along the coffee supply chain, and we believe that those principles should apply to all.

Roman Holiday

03.20.2013

This new spring drink was born out of a pair of experiments by our head barista, Jackson O' Brien. First: attempting to create a coffee version of his favorite cocktail (the Manhattan) with its flavor profile of a sweetened and smoother whiskey with citrus notes, and flipping it into a sweeter and smoother espresso with citrus notes. In addition he wanted to figure out a way to potentially …

Imperial Stout infused with coffee beans? Yes, please. Minnesota winters build character. So do imperial stouts. Add dark roasted coffee beans to the mix, and you get a winter sipper worthy enough for even the heartiest Minnesotan. Three years ago our friends at Fulton Brewery asked for a coffee recommendation to add to their winter seasonal, The Worthy Adversary. Our head roaster suggest…

How long does it take to make your morning cup of coffee? Perhaps your answer is that the timer starts sometime before your alarm goes off; you set it so long ago that you no longer remember when. Perhaps you know that the extraction time for your favorite espresso clocks in at 18 seconds. Perhaps you're a slow brew aficionado, waiting 4 minutes for the perfect pourover. All of those are one a…

Wonderland Park Espresso--Brew Tips

Jackson O' Brien, Peace Coffee Shop Head Barista

When preparing the Wonderland Park Espresso, aim for a shot that has a 2:3 ratio of coffee grounds to shot with a brew time of 27 seconds. Using standard portafilter basket sizes, that means you will be using 18g grounds of coffee to yield a shot that weighs 27g or 20g of coffee to yield 30g of beverage. When honing in on the perfect ratio, adjust the grind to get the desired shot at the target…
