Espresso - Kenya - Kapsokisio
When we first started April I didn't want to work with Kenyan Espresso for the simple reason that it is so rare that I taste any version of it that I like. But, Kapsokisio change my mind. It is incredibly sweet and round with a very balanced acidity and winey body. Which makes for a great espresso.
Use a 1:2.2 brew ratio. With all espresso you first need to identify the size of the filter basket - preferably of the brand VST ridgles - that you are using. For this coffee that would be the filter basket size * 2.2, aiming for a target TDS of 8. Depending on which grinder and set-up your working with the result will be a bit different but the recommended brew time is still between 28 - 29 seconds for this coffee.
