Adventures in Coffee… Rave Recap

Fudge Blend

 
This is my new favourite coffee. It is strong, but smooth. It works well in both espresso and filter form and I enjoyed the whole bag so much that within the same month I bought another, bigger bag and am enjoying that too.

This was an interesting one. I wanted to try a different nuts blend, but they didn’t have it available so went for this one instead on the recommendation of the staff. It was nutty, but I also found it has an acidic after taste, especially in the espresso form. Pour-over was better as I also added milk to those drinks and that mellowed it out quite a bit.

Mocha Java Blend

 
On my second trip of the month to Rave  along with the large bag of Fudge Blend I decided to try the Mocha Java Blend as it was on offer the weekend I visited.  This is nice, a little bitterer than the Fudge, but a nice strong blend. Leaving my espresso to cool slightly before drinking makes it smoother I have found, but could just be me.

I have found out Rave do some coffee workshops and I intend to book on the next time they become available. I really want to learn about the proportions of water to coffee and how to make café coffee at home. I will be so excited when I get booked on so I hope it’s not too long to wait.
