Join us Friday, June 22nd here at the Cherry Hill Coffee Roastery for another Brew School event. Try your hand at different pour-over coffee techniques like Aeropress, Chemex and Hario. We’ll go over some basic cupping practices. This is your chance to experiment with some coffees you may not have tried before and evaluate different profile aspects such as aroma, flavour and acidity. We’ll explore a variety of processing and production techniques as well as comparing distinct geographical characteristics. Brew School is a great hands-on experience for geeks and newbies alike. We’ll try and sneak in a tour if we have time and who knows, maybe we’ll even try some of our Wine Barrel Aged Coffee in the siphon just for kicks. Sign up by emailing james@cherryhillcoffee.com. Class gets under way at 3PM and is about an hour long.

Coffee and The Great Outdoors

COFFEE UNPLUGGED

Here in British Columbia, Victoria Day marks the unofficial start of summer as many of us hit the road bound for the great outdoors. As another camping season gets under way, Cherry Hill regulars inevitably ask us for our coffee brewing recommendations when roughing it. With so many options out there, both old an new, it can be a daunting and frustrating process to find the the right brew method for you. When creature comforts are hard to come by in the wild, your morning coffee is all the more important. So to make it easier for you, we’ll roll through some analog brewing styles.


Many of you are familiar with the venerable percolator – a simple enough method, yet a messy and often gritty result. The wait time is seemingly endless and the clean up can be a chore. “Cowboy” coffee is a crude and bitter option only to be considered in a dire caffeine emergency. This method involves immersing coarse grounds with boiling water in a pot over a fire. It doesn’t get more primitive than that. And while more contemporary options exist, there’s no getting around that glass French Presses, along with Chemexes and Hario’s are too fragile to consider for outdoor adventures.


Don’t cry in your coffee though, we have just the thing to stand up to Mother Nature. When it comes to ease of use and durability, there’s nothing that come close to the Aeropress from Aerobie. It’s small and light making it a breeze to pack in your camping gear. Best of all, it’s a low cost alternative to other portable brewers. When it comes to brew time, with the Aeropress you can be enjoying your coffee in less than a minute compared to 4+ minutes with French Presses. Clean up is much easier too comparatively as the Aeropress leaves a puck of grounds that can be easily disposed of. And if being green is your thing, you can replace the paper filter with a stainless permanent Disk filter.


Finally, we always recommend grinding your coffee right before brewing. And why should that stop you when you’re tenting it? With the Hario Skerton hand grinder you can have freshly ground coffee in seconds. It takes a bit of elbow grease to crank out a grind, but it’s nothing compared to a 500m portage right? The Skerton features a manual grind adjustment along with ceramic burrs for easy cleaning and you can remove the glass and grind directly into your Aeropress. The handle is removable as well so the mill is more compact for travelling.

If you need a little more info or a how-to, check out this post or sign up for our next Brew School! So stop in and stock up Cherry Hill Coffee before you head out on your next trek or order your supplies online right here. Happy Camping!
