Terroir Invitational

For all you naysayers out there that thought the Terroir might rock our minds here at Gimme Coffee in Brooklyn, um, you were right. Its been hard for us to wrap our portafilters around. But after a decent amount of huffing and puffing on a live bar, we're ready to open up our experiences to the general public. Does this mean I'm going to spout prolific on what's hot or not about Georges baby? Not a chance. I was born at night but it wasn't last night. I will instead however invite anyone who wants to revisit (or meet) this blend at our shop for our grand Terroir finale Tuesday night at 6pm. Come and see how well YOU can pull shots of it...

I never said "nay."

Just for the record.

If not for the 5th anniversary, I'd make some play on words from "Terroir..." oh well.

Dose down... to 14-16 grams. Also, forget wanting the shots to be syrupy and heavy... cuz you'll be searching the floor for your tooth-enamel. Let them thin out a little, and experience it like a super-concentrated cupping.

Open your miiiiind. :-)

We're actually pulling at 13grams, as per their recommendations. I pulled one heavier (around 17) for a friend. It put him on the floor. Good times...

Oh and now that you mention it, one of the reasons the 13grams was so hard to pull originally was the necessity for a 57mm tamper that could reach down into the 14gram basket and seal the puck. Channeling was our biggest problem. Luckily Paul Pratt had sent a custom job to Chris a while back that suits the job perfectly...

I haven't had/pulled a shot of Terroir's Northern in some time. Should be interesting.
Good Times... :)

CO has a custom paul pratt tamper, sweet!
