Description About Boast Coffee - Guatemala Ayarza Wine Series Honey
Rich almond undertones work alongside fruity, juicy flavors in this honey processed take on Guatemala Ayarza from Boast. This Wine Series coffee shows off how processing really does affect the flavor that ends up in the cup. With a smoother set of flavors than the natural in this series that dials back the sweetness just a bit, this roast is the medium between that more flavorful coffee and the more balanced washed from the same producer. This coffee's body is a medium, with similar characteristics to the other coffees in the series. We highly recommend giving this one a try alongside the other Guatemala's of this series to really understand better how process affects flavor. This one is best enjoyed as a pour over but makes for a tasty drip brew or even a delicious (if challenging) espresso!

Recommended Brew Methods
We recommend a 16:1 water to coffee ratio for your dosing. Use a scale for best results! For pour over, use a medium-coarse grind size somewhere between drip and press levels. Start with a short pour to wet the grounds and “bloom” the coffee for 30 seconds, followed by two more pours, divided in half to reach the appropriate remaining ratio of water to coffee.
Start with a 16:1 water-to-coffee ratio for your dosing. You’ll want a medium grind size for drip brewing that’s finer than what you’d use for pourover. Make sure you give the filter basket a shake to evenly distribute the grounds in the filter for best results. Turn on your brewer and it’ll do the rest!
