Who can guess how many coffee beans are in that cup?
No need! That is what the trusty scale is for.
That is exactly 30 grams of coffee-the perfect amount for 2 morning cups. Pressing the power button on a scale, setting a cup on it, zeroing it out, and waiting until the screen says "30 grams" is the very first thing (at least one of the first 5 things) many of us at One Village Coffee do in the morning.
We are only human, and human without coffee first the in the morning. The scale ensures you are using the exact amount of beans and water you want to use so the coffee isn't "a little strong" one day and "a little weak" the next. Eyeballing it works, but for us making a good cup of coffee whilst groggily eyeballing it is actually a lot harder.
Do all of you use scales? How did the scale change your coffee journey? If not, what stops you from making the switch?
We are ready to do what we can to get all of you making coffee with a scale ready 😊🤓🍵 #jenningsscale #harioscale #coffeegram #coffeelover #coffeeaddict #goodmorning #coffee #wholebean #specialtycoffee #coffeebreak
Some new single origins just hit the online shop this week! The Pacaybamba from #Peru and the Koban from #PapuaNewGuinea.
New coffees mean a lot to us as a specialty roaster. The coffee that sits in our pantries at home is rarely the same one all year long.
We know how different coffees taste from one another so many of us who work here are always picking up a bag of the new stuff to brew up at home. Tasting and finding what we like and don't like has become a big part of our personal coffee journeys.
Do all of you try different coffees or do you have a favorite you stock up on? What is that favorite? We love learning about your coffee journey.

Overheard @victorybeer in Downingtown, PA: "Oh this is spicy...wait, no...that's the coffee! You can really taste the coffee in this. It is so good!" We can definitely confirm that it is worth the trip to one of the Victory locations to try this ale. It is incredible how distinctly the cold brewed coffee taste sneaks its way into each sip.
Have any of you tried the cream ale with cold brew? What did you think?

Which coffee experience are you going for this Monday morning?
Here at One Village Coffee-many of us have gravitated to a ritual that involves a single origin carefully hand poured (a lot of @kalitausa and @hario_japan fans here) and enjoying it black.
Most of us start our coffee journey with classic and familiar dark roasts. They are those roasty coffees you grew up drinking in Grandma's kitchen or on the go in paper cups or at the diner. They taste awesome with milk and sugar and brew up pretty darn well in a drip pot.
It is so interesting to witness our own personal coffee preferences shift over time. When we look around we see we are not alone!
Do you go for a classic & familar dark roast? Do you add milk and sugar to it? Have you tried a more modern blend or a nuanced single origin? Have you tried adding milk to those types of coffee? It is a totally different experience 😊

"You smell like coffee." Yes, for those of us who work at One Village Coffee, we always smell like it. Coffee beans manage to find their way into our suitcases, backpacks, car trunks, and of course apartment floors. This means everytime we unzip a bag the aroma seeps out and comments are made.
We take our coffee everywhere and our scent reflects it.
Do you bring coffee beans when traveling? If not, do you have a travel coffee ritual? We are always looking for a good cup when away from home...bring on the recommendations!

"Is this whole bean coffee or can I buy it ground?" We get this question a lot. We get it at our roastery, at grocery store demos, events, even here on social media. It is one of those questions that always tugs at our heart strings a little.
We value quality, and for many of us one of the biggest upgrades for our coffee game was grinding it fresh before each brew. We know it is an extra step. We know a nice grinder can be pricey (there is a link to a great one in our bio) but we also know it will make all the difference.
Answer: You can only buy One Village Coffee whole bean.
Why: Because we want you to have the most amazing cup of coffee that honors the farmer and the bean after your complete your ritual every morning.
Are some of you hesitant to buy a grinder? Do you have questions about why it is important? Ask us anything!

We created a custom Colombian blend just for this sweet and biscuity (yes, we said biscuity) Cream Ale our pals @victorybeer released as a new Blackboard series. The mild and nuanced coffee sits nicely with the delicate beer. Read more about it (link in bio) and keep an eye out when beer shopping so you can taste it for yourself!

"I am more attune to the nuances of quality coffee. I notice how rich and heavy a coffee can taste when French pressed, yet the same coffee brewed in a Chemex will taste clean and lighter bodied. I also had never tasted the fruitiness, for example, of a natural processed coffee until I began to drink specialty coffee. It is like discovering a whole new world!" Our accountant and demo specialist Andrea Macey on some moments of discovery along her specialty coffee journey.
Have you tried different brew methods like French Press versus Chemex? Do you notice the difference?
