1) 40g bloom for 40 seconds, stir with a bamboo stirrer to get all coffee moistened.

19g coffee (grind setting at  26B Baratza Sette 270)
284g of filtered water
94 degrees Celsius

1) After pouring both the coffee and the water, stir the coffee 10 times. I suggest you use a bamboo stirrer. Avoid sharp objects.
2) Screw the press and let steep for 4 minutes
3) Press slowly, if the press gets stuck, just lift the press and try again. It is normal.
4) Serve or seal the lid.

Review: This is a floral coffee, which with its different and unique character has quickly become a favorite of mine. The distinct citrus notes give a fresh and light feel, which makes the coffee great as cold brew. The freshness also raises the floral tones, making the coffee stand out of the crowd. When I drink this coffee, I can only feel how easy and fresh it is, I would recommend drinking this on the balcony for a summers afternoon.
