One of my favorite ways to brew coffee is using our Stagg Dripper X. This pour over brewing method involves grinding the amount of coffee needed for each cup and using a kettle to pour the water over the ground coffee. We use a scale to keep track of our ratios and the time it takes to brew. This process within the journey brings out the flavor notes of the three beans we are currently offering and presents a balanced cup.
Overall, what an incredible journey! I am consistently humbled by how much more there is to learn about coffee. I started working at ICR in December and it’s been a privilege and honor to work alongside this team as we learn and grow together. But for me, learning about the journey of coffee allows me to reflect on my own journey and the processes I’ve formed.
In any process, not unlike the coffee process, there are skills involved, methodical steps and even waiting. I have learned I am not always patient when I am in the midst of particular circumstances. But I am challenged by those around me to find great joy along the way. Instead of rushing through the small or large steps of the process, I believe the coffee journey serves as an example for me to learn to do one step at a time.
So if you are looking for a place to enjoy the journey, everyone is welcome to join the process one cup and one conversation at a time
