Hi!I was asked to talk about coffee and chocolate pairing. I've already done pairings with whisky and beer, but never with coffee.Does anyone has ever done pairings like this? Do you have some…Continue
I'll ask the guy, which is a roaster. He doesn't work at a café. I'll see what he knows (or doesn't know) about all these methods, maybe he knows a lot anyways. What I explained to Giovanni is that the first thing…"
You make a good point about people using sugar in their coffee. (Thank you google translate.) I was assuming that all of the coffee would be black because that is the only way to get the true coffee flavor. But many…"
"Infatti, cercherò di parlare della degustazione in modo generale, e non so neanche se parleremo dei caffè: la gente saprà che sono quelli del barista che sarà lì con me. Ma io cercherò di parlare dei…"
Is your coffee person just a roaster or a barista at a cafe? You need to partner with someone who knows about coffee. You should ask your coffee partner about pour overs or French Press (not to mention Clever Coffee dripper or…"
"Se è così allora cambia tutto, potrai raccontare le origini e l'evoluzione dei due coloniali più diffusi al mondo e come si sono incrociate le loro storie e credo che saprai consigliare come prestare attenzione negli…"
Sì, farò un bel po' di prove prima per vedere cosa succede in una degustazione del genere. Però non sarà una degustazione con gente: starò da sola con il barista e saremo filmati per una webtv:…"
Interessante quesito. Ho sempre ritenuto la degustazione cioccolato/caffè più uno scontro che un abbinamento, entrambi molto complessi e ricchi di aromi che tendono l'un l'altro a sovrapporsi. Amo sia il…"
Thank you for the tip, but why is a French press coffee or pour over better than espresso for a tasting? I know chocolate, but I'm new to the coffee world, and these are the things I want to know and understand for a tasting. I want to…"
"The Simonelli website says that it makes Espresso machines. Are you really going to use espresso for these pairings? I hope not.
If I do a coffee and chocolate pairing, the coffee will be made by pour over or French press. "
"I hope the guy is used to do coffee cupping, because I'm not used to it... The Simonelli equiment is italian: http://www.nuovasimonelli.com/. They have coffee machines for coffee shops and restaurants.
I would prefer too single origin coffees.…"
"I'm curious... why is a roaster only using blends and not single origins? The roasters that I've seen use mostly single origin beans. I think this would work better for a tasting.
And what kind of equipment is Simonelli?…"
"I don't know if chocolate and coffee pairing is more popular here than in the West Coast. But that's true that I don't see a lot of pairing events with coffee. You are right, the pairings are mostly done with wine and ports, at least…"
"I will be working with a guy that is a coffee roaster. He has very professional Simonelli equipment for the brewing, so I guess it would be a quality brewing. He asked me to do the pairing, so I will use his coffees, which are only blends.
Many thanks for your request .... we are just re-evaluating our plans now, and whilst we will probably still visit the Dominican Republic, we are planning on visiting the Yucatan Peninsula on our way .... so we're a bit unsure about our itinerary ... but yes, if it happens we are in the Dominican Republic at the same time, it would be great to catch up and possibly make some visits together. Will be in touch soon .... we are just trying to get through Easter in our chocolate store!
