On the show this week is a Colombia coffee by Anchorhead. Mike and Jake at Anchorhead Coffee just opened a new cafe downtown Seattle – it's a beautiful space, they serve great coffee, and fantastic pastries as well (including what they call a Quaffle, which is when you take a cinnamon roll and smash it in a waffle iron).
Anyhow, as I was checking out their new space I thought it would be a fine time to show off their work.
Anchorhead started out about 3 years ago. I met them originally via Jesse at Conduit Coffee, and then interviewed and had their story in the magazine. They began with cold brew, and moved into selling their own roasted coffee before too long (it's very hard to make a business solely around cold brew year-round). Since then they have grown as a business as well as aristans of a craft. Their roasted coffee is very excellent, and quite worth your time. I definitely recommend getting a bag of the coffee I talk about on this show.
You can't get this coffee anymore, but Anchorhead often carries Colombia, Guatemala, and other fantastic origins – https://anchorheadcoffee.com/collections/all
I am excited this week to be brewing now with the Kalita Wave – I've moved over to this brewing method from Chemex, as the Wave can give me cups of coffee with more overall flavor and body than the Chemex. Not to say that the Chemex is bad. I would describe a cup from a Chemex as cleaner and crisper than the Wave, but as I am storytelling on very complex flavors I decided it would be better to brew from something like the Wave.
I'll certainly put together a video on the Kalita Wave itself – maybe even a little review of sorts.
I also have an introduction that I'll be putting together for this show. If you checked out my Cup of Joe from this week, you will have seen the new introduction I made for that show. I”m going to do something similar here, but I need to gather a number of video clips which will take me some time to get together.
I love hearing back from you – your thoughts and reactions to the show, what you like, what you dont like, what you would love to see, questions you have, etc. Please subscribe to Coffee Lovers TV on YouTube! I'm doing a lot of fun stuff over there. I'll definitely be keeping content up to date on this site, but subscribing and liking over on YouTube really will help the show grow in the long run, and I appreciate all of you who do that 🙂
