Farmers First Coffee; Rosa’s Coffee

Did you know that most coffee famers earn less than $2,000 per year?

Farmers First Coffee do things differently by paying 4 times more than “fair” trade each year. They put farmers first. By waking up each morning with a cup of Farmers First Coffee, you’re giving hard-working coffee farmers from Honduras and Peru the opportunity to lift themselves up economically.IMG_4785.jpg

Rosa Lloclla, grew this coffee. From San Ignacio, Peru, she’s the epitome of perseverance. A fighter. She and her son, Nolberto, are determined to improve their farm. Rosa’s coffee details below:

Tasting Notes: Dark Chocolate, almond, brown sugar, caramel, grape and roses.
Community: Bajo Ihuamaca
Region: Cajamarca
Country: Peru
Process: Washed
Elevation: 5,085 feet (1,550 meters)

The coffee trade isn’t fair to small-scale farmers. Farmers First Coffee solves that problem by providing a 50% bonus directly to the people creating your coffee, an amount 4 times higher than “fair trade.”

Cold Brew with Asobu

I am obsessed with everything coffee- from the actual beverage, to the smell, to learning it’s origin, everything! I’ve always wanted to try cold brew coffee, as I hear everyone raving about it and how it’s so amazing. Well, my friends at Asobu were able to let me try their Asobu Cold brew Insulated Portable Brewer!

Asobu Coldbrew Insuated Portable Brewer is an innovative brewing method combining coarse coffee grounds, cold water and a 12-24 hour steeping time. The resulting coffee is delicious and versatile and can be enjoyed anywhere cold or hot.FullSizeRender 4.jpg

FEATURES:
– Copper Insulated Steel Carafe
– Clear TRITAN Brewing Carafe
– 100% LEAK PROOF Lids
– Keeps coffee concentrate fresh and cold for hours
– Portable and lightweight

Great for people on the go, carry your carafe in your car, to the office and even in the park!FullSizeRender-1.jpgFullSizeRender.jpg

This is how I made the cold brew coffee:

  • Set aside 3 oz of ground coffee.
  • Set aside 3 cups of cold filtered water.
  • Unscrew the lid, leaving the mesh in the carafe.
  • Add a third of the ground coffee and then add a third of the water making sure all of the coffee grounds are wet.
  • Repeat with the rest of the coffee, a third at a time.
  • Twist on the lid and let it brew for 12-24 hours.
  • Hold down the button to drain the cold brew coffee into the portable carafe!FullSizeRender 7.jpgFullSizeRender copy.jpg

FullSizeRender-3.jpgAt first, I was skeptical on how much of a difference cold brew coffee would taste from a good ol’ hot brew coffee. The difference was amazing. The cold brew coffee had this distinct smooth thick taste to it. I found it less bitter but also so satisfying. Coffee solubles dissolve best between 195 to 205 Fahrenheit, so coffee brewed with hot water has a more full-bodied, flavorful taste profile than cold brew. Hot water also pulls the soluble chemicals out of the grounds quickly, and makes them more volatile. … This is why cold brew almost never tastes acidic or bitter.FullSizeRender-2.jpgFullSizeRender 3.jpgFullSizeRender 9.jpg

The product was very easy to use and even easier to clean. Check out where you can purchase your Asobu Coldbrew Insuated Portable Brewer below!
