Some people would say if you've tasted one coffee, you've tasted them all. But this couldn't be further from the truth. Each coffee has its own delicate nuances and distinctions that define it from a host of other blends. Padre coffee is a particular coffee with an inimitable taste that will sate the most selective sipper.
The Brunswick East Project was the site of my premier tasting of siphon coffee. Until now, I have avoided trying siphon coffee (being more of a milky-cappuccino lover) fearing it would be strong, bitter and a generally unsavoury experience. Besides that, I wasn't exactly thrilled about forking out for something I may not even like, that was double the price I would usually pay. However, I finally succumbed to experiencing siphon coffee, mainly due to the fact I was itching to find out what all the fuss was really about.
For those of you who have never heard of siphon coffee, the general gist of it is; a vacuum process, which results in an increased sensory coffee experience. To really have any understanding of how it is done, watching it made is your best bet, unless you happen to be a scientist, then it should all make perfect sense after a quick read on Google.
The texture of siphon coffee is more like tea than espresso, clean and smooth. The flavours that result are distinctive and refined. The siphon process allows the true coffee taste to come out and be the star of the show, without being drowned by any other flavours.
The Brunswick East Project has a decidedly technical vibe to it. You just get the feeling that these guys really know what they are doing. With a variety of top of the range coffee products for sale, you'll find more than just coffee to spend your money on here. I found myself particularly impressed by the eco-friendly, non-electrical espresso maker for sale.
