Elly Cortez is an incredibly talented and dedicated barista at Show & Tell Coffee in Kitchener, Ontario. She took her brewing skills to the Canadian AeroPress Competition in October 2018 and her recipe and brewing skills took the top spot, earning her the title of Canadian AeroPress Champion!
In November 2018, she flew to Sydney, Australia, to represent Canada in the International competition and made it all the way to the semi-finals!
She graciously assembled a brew guide for us that perfectly dials in this coffee produced by Alfonso Matheus. We even were able to chat and put this brew guide in a format that’ll play through in real time for you.
What you need:
“It is a very clean coffee. I found that with this brew, I got to enjoy a silkier body than on pourover. You're still getting that really cool acidity - I wouldn't say like juicy pineapple. I'd say more like candied pineapple. Like picture a pineapple that's been roasted and sitting out in the sun, all candied.” – Elly Cortez on what to expect in the cup with this brew guide
