Colombia Huila Palestina La Argentina Tabi
By Everyday Coffee Roasters

From the coveted department of Huila, Colombia, a vibrant regional blend profile was created through the efforts of 28 producers. Each producer carefully harvested cherries, de-pulped, and fermented them using their micro-mill for 70 hours. After this prolonged fermenting process, the coffee was washed and dried on raised beds. The harmony between these producers in post-harvest practices was impressively precise to achieve such a clean and consistent blend.

Released in 2002 as part of Colombia’s efforts to combat leaf rust, it is a hybrid of Bourbon, Typica, and Timor. Tabi means “good” in the Guambiano (a native Colombian tribe) dialect. This coffee displays the positive cup qualities of its bourbon and Typica parents while being more resistant to leaf rust.

The Ultimate Guide to Dessert Degustation
By Everyday Coffee Roasters

Introduction: What is a Dessert Degustation?

A dessert degustation is a tasting of various desserts.

Dessert degustations are becoming more popular in recent years as they offer a unique experience for customers who want to try different desserts without ordering them separately and help chefs showcase their skills.

A dessert degustation menu varies, but it can cost as little as P2,000 for a three-course dessert degustation menu. But at other restaurants, it can cost as much as P6,000 for a six-course dessert degustation menu.

What to Expect When Going for Dessert Degustations?

A degustation menu is a tasting menu of dishes served one by one. It is usually more formal than a regular menu, and the food is generally in smaller portions. The menu typically has six to eight dishes, starting with an amuse-bouche or small bite-sized hors d'oeuvre.

The guests then go through the main course, which consists of three or four courses. The first dish has no description, and the guests are encouraged to taste it before they know what it is. The other dishes have menu descriptions, and often there will be some discussion between the guests and the chef before they start tasting them.

Different Types of Dessert Degustations

There are two main types of dessert degustations:

1. A tasting menu where the chef chooses a selection of desserts, usually three or four, to be served at the end of the meal.

2. A dessert buffet where guests can choose their desserts from a selection usually displayed on a table.

The main difference between these two types of dessert degustations is that there is more control over what kind of desserts and how many will participate in a tasting menu. However, in a buffet-style dessert degustation, guests can choose as many as they want, allowing for more creativity with flavors and textures.

How the Chef Selects the Menu?

The Chef selects the desserts for the degustation menu based on criteria.

What is the Chef looking for in a dessert?

- The Chef considers how many courses guests will participate in on the degustation.

- The Chef wants to balance sweet and savory flavors.

- The Chef wants to showcase seasonal ingredients.

- The Chef wants to balance textures and temperatures (i.e., hot and cold).

How Long Does it Take to Complete Your Degustation Menu?

Dessert degustations are a great way to indulge in all your favorite desserts, but they can be time-consuming. They require a lot of time and patience. It is best to have patience, as you will not regret it.

Many people are curious about how long it takes to complete the dessert degustation. Many want to know if they can finish the entire thing before their stomachs start hurting from overindulgence. The answer is that it varies depending on what kind of dessert you order and how quickly you eat them.

Summary

Dessert degustation is not just about the dessert. It is a journey that starts with the first dish and ends with the last one. It is a journey of taste, texture, and flavors.

This article has shown you that desserts are not just for eating but for exploring different textures, tastes, and flavors. If you want to enjoy desserts properly, try out this dessert degustation experience at your next meal!

The Importance of Single-Origin Coffee for Your Morning Routine
By Everyday Coffee Roasters

Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world. The most common way to drink coffee is by adding milk and sugar. But did you know that there are different types of coffee? One type of coffee is single-origin coffee. This type of coffee comes from one single plantation or country and has a unique flavor profile.

There are many benefits to drinking single-origin coffee for your morning routine. Research has shown that this type of coffee has a lower acidity level than other types of coffee. Single-origin coffees also have more antioxidants than different types of coffees because they are grown in their natural environment with no pesticides or herbicides used on them.

Single Origin vs. Blended Coffee

Single-origin coffee is when the beans are from one region. Blended coffee is when the beans are from different areas or countries.

Single-origin coffees are usually more expensive than blended ones because they can be harder to find and have a higher quality of taste. For example, suppose you buy a blend of Colombian, Ethiopian, and Brazilian beans. It will likely taste like a Colombian or Brazilian blend - better than a single-origin bean.

Blended coffees might be cheaper, but that does not mean they are inferior in quality to single-origin ones. They come from different origins, so the taste might differ from what you would get with an Ethiopian or Colombian bean, for example.

How to Find Single-Origin Coffee Beans

Typically is to buy from a local roaster or coffee shop. Roasters usually roast their coffee, so they know what they are selling and can answer any queries you may have about it. It is an excellent option for people who want to support their local economy and get better-quality coffee beans simultaneously.

The easiest and most convenient way of finding these beans - is online. Everyday Coffee Roasters is an e-commerce company that specializes in offering freshly-roasted coffee beans sourced all over the world. Coffee beans are always roasted in small batches and delivered directly to your home anywhere in the Philippines.

How to Brew the Perfect Cup of Single Origin Coffee in 4 Steps

The perfect cup of coffee is a blend of art and science. It’s all about the beans, the grind, and the brewing process.

  1. Choose a quality coffee: The quality of your coffee starts with the coffee beans you choose. Choose a coffee that you enjoy drinking or one that has won awards in competitions.
  2. Grind it just right: The grind has to be just suitable for optimal flavor extraction from your beans, so experiment with different settings until you find what works best for you.
  3. Use fresh, cold water: The temperature and freshness of your water will affect how quickly your brew will taste stale or flat.
  4. Brew for the right time: Brewing for too long can make it bitter; not long enough can make it taste sour or weak.

Final Thoughts

Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world. It is drunk by more than 1 billion people globally. It is a staple in many people’s morning routine and provides them with much-needed energy to start their day. Coffee also has many health benefits, including lower risks for diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease.
