One Cup Or All Day
However first…let’s speak about espresso!! Whether or not you’re like me and you’ve got one scrumptious cup a day or you’ll be able to drink espresso any time of day, all of us have our espresso rituals and favourite beans. I’m significantly delicate to caffeine, so I can solely have one journey mug per day or I received’t sleep at evening! Something I order after 10am needs to be decaf.
I sit up for that one cup each morning a lot. Thomas is a large espresso lover and began bringing me a cup on my evening stand when he moved it – similar to his dad has completed for his mother for 40 years! <3
I do know folks really feel strongly about their french press (I did for years!) or pour-over coffees, however we’re crew programmable all the best way. Now we have a Breville Precision Brewer Espresso Maker that we purchased just some years in the past. The carafe isn’t glass so it’s high-quality to toss round, espresso tastes nice, and the dial is tremendous straightforward to program. It’s been my favourite I’ve ever owned!
Our Small-Batch Espresso Roasters
We purchase domestically roasted espresso – both Shenandoah Joe or Trager Brothers – and like to combine up the flavors we purchase every month. Trager Brothers is natural, ethically sourced, and small batch roasted. Currently we’ve been hooked on Trager Brothers Guatemalan which is a medium roast heavy on the chocolatey notes! (You possibly can purchase it via their web site if you wish to attempt our Cville favourite!)
