Coffees of the Month – Kenya Gethumbwini and El Salvador Finca La Fany Bourbon

Another instalment of ‘coffee of the month’. This time I have a couple of corkers.

Kenya Gethumbwini
Fruity and yet smooth I really liked this coffee. Kenya as a region makes coffee I like very much and this one didn’t disappoint me. I would have this again. Perfect in the french press.

El Salvador Finca La Fany Bourbon
Steve from Has Bean eulogises a lot about the great coffee from El Salvador so I thought I should give one a go and picked this one more or less at random. Very nice indeed particularly in the aeropress. It was nice to have two coffees that lent themselves to different brewing methods, something I might try to do going forward.

All top coffee people advocate the grinding of coffee in a burr grinder as it produces a much more even result than the blade machines. The burr grinders are, however, quite a bit more pricey and I’ve been using a reasonable de longhi blade grinder so far. It produced a fairly even grind to begin with, but now it has had a lot more use it’s slowly getting worse. I need to save some pennies…
