If you're familiar with Louisville's local coffee scene, you know we love a good coffee competition. And this week, our local coffee pros and beanheads are bristling in anticipation, because the ERAC is coming to town! This Saturday, January 31st, we will be hosting the 2015 US Eastern Regional Aeropress Championship at Quills Coffee at 930 Baxter Ave. The competition starts at 7 PM, and we're positive it's going to be a grand old time.
It was a dark and misty morning. The sun lay slumbering behind the horizon. All normal people remained in bed. I stumbled over to Nord's Bakery, bleary-eyed and half dead. I needed a hard-hitting shot of donut, and I needed it fast. The tinny clang of the bell announced my arrival. I was greeted by the always cheery staff. "Mhpshdlhuyh," I replied. I held up four fingers and pointed to the donuts I wanted.
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.
Students, prepare for the new school year with the most essential of school supplies: coffee brewing equipment.
This January, we helped host the 2015 US Eastern Regional Aeropress Championship with Quills Coffee right here in Louisville. With 18 talented competitors, and a huge crowd of coffee pros and enthusiasts from both near and far, the event was a blast! To share the fun with y'all, we whipped up a little video of the action. Take a look, and be sure to check out the winning recipes as well!
