Before getting interested in Coffee, I was very devoted to brewing Tea for about 5-8 years. Throughout that time I did a lot of experiments, I learned about the different types of teas, brewing techniques, how it is grown, brewed, and its benefit human health.
I am still very passionate about the topic and I’ve managed to get other people hooked into it, although I must say not a tea drinker these days.
In 2015, when I moved to Australia I began to get interested in coffee. Similar to what happened with Tea, I started to research beans, roasters, brewing techniques, and also to experiment.
I remember that seeing all these coffee shops and the variety in roasters available in Australia was very interesting. It triggered my curiosity and now I have a few weekly subscriptions going so I can try coffee from all over the world, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Rwanda, and so on.
I discovered that Coffee and Tea are very incredible worlds and surprisingly they have some overlap, for example, to make a great cup of coffee or tea we require three things, great ingredients, consistent processes, good equipment.
Over the past seven years I pulled more than 3,000 coffees, this has allowed me to slowly test and develop my technique and also evolve my equipment. I started with a small single boiler Breville which served me for many years and ended up with the equipment mentioned below:
- Acaia Lunar
- Baratza sette 270wi
- Rancilio Silvia Pro
- Rancilio Tamper
- Matow Coffee Leveler
- Matow coffee dosing ring
- Grindenstein Knock Box
- Friis Coffee Vault
- Rhinoware Thermometer
- Rhinoware Milk Jug
- Rhinoware Bench Tamper
- Rhinoware Coffee Shot Glass
I also started to write down the names of the coffee roasters in Australia where I sourced coffee beans. The goal is to continue expanding on the information of this sheet and share it with people that share the same interest.
