Step 5

Taste it

Most of the time it will be right first try. Sometimes it will need adjustment.All you need to decide is:
  1. Is it too sour, like lemon. In this case you need to extract more.
  2. Is OK, you dont need to change anything. Some refer to this as the sweet spot, but coffee doesnt actually contain sugar so think of this as the calm between too sour and too bitter.
  3. Is it too bitter. All coffee is bitter to some extent but you can reduce the bitterness by extracting less.

    Wow, strawberry note, tobacco leaves, ripe pears, Coxes Orange waxey apples. Light acidity.

    Situated in near the town of Ooty, in the far west of the Tamil Nadu region of India, Balmaadi Estate was one of a group of coffee farms originally established by Scotsman John Ouchterloney in the 19th Century. In 2003 the farm passed to its current owner, Unnamalai Thiagarajan, from her husband’s family. A remote, difficult to access location and a wonderfully complex but sprawling farm meant Unna faced massive challenges to make it a sustainable business. Studying her options, she came across Biodynamic processes – one of the earliest Organic philosophies. Biodynamic growers obey Organic rules but also look to create self-sufficient agricultural environments, where the biodiversity on the farm supplies for its own needs. Chiming with her own beliefs in the importance of existing in harmony with her environment, Unna has used this approach to turn the challenge of isolation and the semi-wild nature of the farm into an advantage.
