Coffee in Peru

I just posted this on another thread, and it also seemed relevant here:


"Oh, by the way, along with Inca Cola did you know the Incas invented Nescafe - yes that is why when you order coffe in Peru you are served a jar of Nescafe and hot water.
This is evidenced by Lineas Nazca or in English Nescafe Lines "

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazca_Lines

Eat , Drink Coffee and Be Careful

Talking Coffee

Have to have it lots in the AM to start the day and I carry a press but if you haven't tried Dark Choclate covered Coffee Beans your missing out an ounce of this goodness is about the same as 5 cups espresso

I have it the cowboy way usually using Lavaza(italian) or Gevalia(swedish)
ground bean coffees, but the trick is to let the ground coffee settle on the bottom of your pot, and then pour it carefully and you will get a perfect cup of coffee every time!
Its all in the settling of the coffee and a gentle pour, if poured patiently none of the ground coffee will get in your cup.A firm tap on the side of the pot usually helps the coffee to sink.
Every time im on the road or hiking, i use this trusty method which once mastered never fails to deliver a perfect cup of black gold nectar.

I normaly make cowboy coffee. The trick not to heat the water to much, if the water boils then the coffee gets bitter and taste like €&@%#. When water starts to talk and makes small bubles then it is perfect temperatur.

Boz, pour your or any slosh thru this into your cup, frikkin perfect coffee every time. No slag. Do NOT put coffee in it, use it only as a final filter.

Aeropress

Any one using an Aeropress. Been using one for awhile now and makes good coffee quick and easy clean up especially using a stainless steel filter. Easy to carry.

Well in Mexico we call it "cafe de calcetin" translated I think it would be "Sox coffee", this is how it works: get some "coffee grains" grind them and add a bit of cinamon to it. Boil watter on a separate cup, have a piece of cloth on top of annothen cup (your dinking cup) add one or two spoons of coffee, add sugar pour the hot water and drink the best coffee you have ever tasted.

We tried loads of coffee options but now use a small HARIO CERAMIC GRINDER and an AEROPRESS FILTER.

The Aropress is great, the filters last for ages and you can cut the handle of the coffee scoop down so it pushes inside the plunger, making it very light and compact

Had a look at the aeropress website. Im presuming you need the silver stand in the demo videos in which case Im presuming carrying all that stuff on the road would be pretty bulky?

Aeropress Review

I have had my aeropress for a week or so now and I must say I'm quite impressed. Living in a city where you can get great espresso everywhere and a bad coffee is becoming rare I'm reasonably discerning when it comes to my coffee.
I have never been a huge fan of the French press and have never had a satisfying filtered coffee anywhere.

While the aeropress does not make espresso it does consistently make excellent tasting coffee. I had read on various blogs that you may need to experiment with different grinds to get a good result but I found I was making a great cup from the first press. Lots of Videos on youtube with different techniques for using it.
Its reasonably compact and very sturdy, should pack up nicely in a pannier.
And its pretty good value as well.

Highly recommended!
