Description About Onyx Coffee Lab - Power Nap
Onyx Coffee Lab is one of the more adventurous roasters we’ve been working with recently, and it shows in coffees like Power Nap. As half-calf coffees become more prominent at specialty roasters, you won’t want to miss Onyx’s entry to the field. Featuring 50% Ethiopia Worka and 50% Decaf Colombia Hulia, this roast is built from some fantastic parts. With notes like brown sugar, peach, and cocoa, this is a really great roast no matter how you brew it. On the lighter side of medium, it’ll work well as an espresso, pour over, drip brew, and more. You may lose some of this coffee’s complexity in a superauto, but it also might match your palate better than other half calf offerings.
- Coffee Type: Whole Bean
- Product Size: 10 oz
Recommended Brew Methods
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!
For a French Press brew we recommend a 1:12 coffee to water ratio with coffee ground at the consistency of sea salt. Add your grounds to the brewing chamber. then add twice the water as there are grounds to the chamber. Stir gently and allow to bloom for about 30 seconds. Place the top on the press and allow it to steep for 4 minutes. Plunge the press slowly and enjoy!
Superautos make brewing espresso easy. All you need to do is add beans to the hopper and press a button to pull yourself a shot. If your shot is a bit sour you’ll want to dial the grinder a little bit finer and try again. If it’s bitter, dial it a little coarser. You can find instructions on how to do this for your machine in the manual. Just remember to avoid oily beans that can clog your superauto’s grinder!
