Coffee brewing: V60

I have started writing about V60 around two years ago, but never managed to say what I wanted. I think because even then I knew that there was so much to it. But stating now that I know everything would be a lie. Nevertheless I can share my experience and reasons why V60 became my…

Fellow Prismo x Aeropress: Espresso-style

There are times when I would like to have an espresso shot or a nicely poured flat white. For a person without an espresso machine it can be tricky. Yet again I live in a fortunate area where speciality coffee is booming. And the café is just around the corner. But if you are desperate…

Aeropress: The ultimate travel brewer

I wanted to talk about Aeropress for a while, but hesitated. Probably because it wasn’t my favourite brewing method like v60 or maybe because I didn’t feel that ceremonial like with Chemex. But recently, I’ve started taking the Aeropress with me and even bought extra gadgets like Fellow Prismo and got Porlex Mini grinder from…

Chemex

Let’s talk about Chemex. In simple words it is a coffeemaker. In a bit more technical, it is a pour over technique that uses a percolation method to get you a good quality coffee. I will admit that I don’t brew with it every day and maybe I should. But simply there are easier methods….

The Journey Of Dark Woods Coffee

“On the weather-beaten moors, on the outskirts of Huddersfield, where the Dark Woods Coffee was born” We slowly drive on the edge of the Peak district, enjoying every moment of snowy hills until we reach Huddersfield – a small northern town with an astonishing landscape and a surprisingly good coffee scene. Almost in the middle…

Speciality Coffee & Upshot Espresso

“Wine, gin, beer – these are the drinks that are crafted and made ready for you to enjoy. With coffee it’s grown, picked, delivered, roasted and even then you can mess up the end product before you savour it. It’s an art.” I quietly stood outside, admiring the view before taking the picture of a…

The Wonderful Story of The Holt

On a cold Saturday morning we set off, running slightly late, and with a few wrong turns we finally ended up at the place we wanted to visit for a few months now. The Holt. The reason we were excited to see what’s inside – well literally, we heard a lot of great things. We…

Cawa Coffee – Broomhill

If any of you know us in real life, you’ll know we can’t resist a good coffee shop and a pastry or two. With our recent move to the Ranmoor end of Sheffield, we’ve now got heaps more cafes and restaurants in walking distance to explore and try out. It’s hard work but someone’s got…

Tamper at Sellers Wheel

Before I moved to Sheffield, Tamper was the first place I visited. It might sound silly, but I think it could have been part of the reason I wanted to live here! I loved the coffee, food and vibe that it had. And it still feels the same. Two years have passed and the Kiwi Cafe…

But First. Coffee.

My first brew was the same as most. Parents drinking a black, mud-like liquid right before going to work. With such a delicious smell yet intensely unappealing taste, I never understood why people liked it. I never even tried it… until a few years ago. It was December 2015, around Christmas time. Unfortunately, I was not…
