I’ve been using my Bruer coffee maker almost daily and love it! As I mentioned in my review, I want to showcase and keep track of the different varieties I’m cold-brewing both to share the goodness as well as remember for myself.
The newest bag of beans making the
drip trip is from a local shop called Mozart’s Coffee Roasters. They have a great setup on the lake with lots of delicious treats (including homemade ice cream) to enjoy with your coffee. I grabbed a bag of their Fair Trade Organic (FTO) Quack’s Blend, which is a special blend made specifically for Quack’s 43rd St Bakery across town in Hyde Park.
It’s hard not to compare to the other coffees we’ve brewed so far, so I’ll at least say I don’t like this as much as the Cuvee Fazenda Pantano. It’s along the same rich, chocolate-y flavor profile (as opposed to the fruity, acidic style of the Huckleberry). However, it has an over-roasted flavor and reminded me a lot of hot coffee poured over ice. It’s not totally unpleasant, but it’s noticeable, and a little disappointing. We’ll certainly work through the rest of this bag, but will try a different blend next time I stop into Mozart’s.
