Local Shops: New Java on Brownsboro

In addition to our coffee review blog series, we have decided to add another. When we have a pleasant experience at a coffee shop, we want to share it with you all in hopes that it will encourage people to check out the good things that are happening in the Louisville coffee community. We hope to write a post about as many local shops as we can and possibly some in neighboring cities. Hope you enjoy!

The Versatile Aeropress

We received our first shipment of Aerobie Aeropress brewers this morning. I wasn't sure what to expect from a frisbee manufacturer, but the reviews I've read were all very positive. As soon as we could, Lee and I both headed off to the break room to brew up the first two cups. Lee used more water with a medium grind. I used less water with a grind only a little coarser than espresso.

Sippin' on Sidama - Thank You PT's!

PT's Coffee very graciously sent us bags and bags of coffee and espresso for the Bash a couple of weeks ago. There was some Ehtiopia Sidama Ardi Natural left over and we snatched it up for our office enjoyment (which is what we are sipping on this morning). The citrus fruit notes have mellowed out a bit after a couple of weeks but there is still a deep, sweet fruit and spice taste that is keeping me well satisfied. Thank you PT's and thank you Mike!

What a Bash!

Sorry for the delay, but this is my first day back in the office since the Bash. First off... wow! What an awesome success! So many people showed up and so much great coffee was consumed. Congrats to Chris Heiniger and Kenny Smith who took first and second place in the latte art competition, and a HUGE thank you to Chris Deferio for driving down from Muncie and gracing us with his coffee expertise.

There are so many more people to thank. I'm not sure where to begin and I'm sure that I will forget somebody. Here goes, thank you to:

And a Super Big "Thank You" to Intelligentsia!

Intelligentsia was so kind as to send us some excellent coffee for the Bash. Don't worry, we taste tested it for you =)
