AfriKahawa Morning Adventure Recipe

Back to Cafe Craft: Signature Brews & Beyond

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons (about 30g) of AfriKahawa Blend coffee, ground to your preference
  • 12 ounces (about 350ml) of filtered water, heated to 200°F (about 93°C)
  • Milk or milk alternative (optional, for those who enjoy their coffee with a creamy texture)
  • Sweetener of choice (optional, for those who prefer a slightly sweeter taste)

Equipment:

  • French press, pour-over, or your preferred coffee brewing method
  • Kettle to boil water
  • Coffee grinder (if using whole beans)
  • Measuring spoon
  • Mug

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Coffee: If you're using whole beans, grind the AfriKahawa Blend to the consistency that matches your brewing method. For a French press, a coarse grind works best, while a medium-fine grind is ideal for pour-over.
  2. Heat the Water: Bring your water to a boil and let it sit for about 30 seconds to reach the optimal brewing temperature.
  3. Brew the Coffee: Depending on your chosen method:
    • For French Press: Add the ground coffee to the press. Pour the hot water over the coffee, ensuring all grounds are saturated. Stir gently, then place the lid on and let it steep for 4 minutes. Press down the plunger slowly.
    • For Pour-Over: Place your filter in the dripper over a mug. Add the ground coffee to the filter. Begin pouring a small amount of water over the grounds to "bloom" them, wait 30 seconds, then continue pouring slowly in a circular motion, ensuring all grounds are evenly saturated.
  4. Customize: Once brewed, taste the coffee. If desired, add a bit of milk or a milk alternative for creaminess. Sweeten as per your taste.
  5. Enjoy: Sip slowly and savor the unique blend of flavors that the AfriKahawa Blend offers, letting the boldness and smoothness awaken your senses and start your day on an adventurous note.

This recipe is a starting point. Feel free to adjust the coffee-to-water ratio, grind size, and brewing time to suit your taste preferences and to best showcase the AfriKahawa Blend's unique characteristics. Enjoy your coffee adventure!
