abandoning me leaving Austin for a dream job, my good friend Jeff picked up a bag of coffee for me while in San Francisco. Sightglass Coffee is a small family-run operation with two coffee shops and a spot at the farmers market. Reading about them reminds me of Cuvee Coffee, both maintaining close relationships with the coffee farmers with whom they do business.
This particular coffee, Finca Zulema Reserva, tasted pretty true to its included “Taste Notes”. I thought it was really well-balanced and maybe a little less bright than the bag would suggest. Admittedly, and this should probably be said in all my Coffee Break posts, these have been brewed primarily in my cold-brew Bruer setup (as seen in the pictures), which undoubtedly will affect what flavors are highlighted. But compared to previous beans, I’d say this Sightglass bag impressed me.
