It's not what you take from a community but what you put in that counts…
…this year we have decided to help sponsor our local rugby club.
and it's not all about beer & rugby ...well mainly but that's not the point. We've been involved in the local club Hinckley Rugby Football club for over 10yrs when our son joined the junior side & then we helped coach & run the team until they got to Colt level. Here it ended until we established Crazy Cat Coffee in 2016 when with a little help financially we could still put something back into the club.
It's a small contribution compared to the big boy sponsorship but we know that sports clubs have to be maintained, staffed & supported in many different ways. The experience these kids have is immeasurable, they go onto play for their County & Country which is a fantastic achievement all made possible by local companies supporting local teams - so go on get involved in your community.
Our Crazy Cat Coffee story – I kind of knew what I liked & disliked about coffee - there are so many on offer & I just didn’t know what to buy.
So here’s a quick breakdown of what to look for in a ground coffee – it’s a very rough guide!
- Central & South American coffee for a hint of chocolate, nutty or caramel flavour, sweet with little or no bitter aftertaste.
- East African or Arabian coffee for a fruity, heavy & wine like flavour.
- Asian coffee for earthy more bitter than sweet in comparison to coffee from other regions.
- Indonesian coffee for earthy, spicy flavour. If you want something bitter, but flavoursome.
Starting with the basics - Fresh is best.
- If you don't have a coffee bean grinder go for ground coffee (filter ground). It won't retain its freshness as long as a bean but it’s a good place to start.
- One more important point before you dash off to the supermarket (or Amazon) - Roast types:
• Espresso roast - designed for espresso coffee machines
• Filter roast - designed for pour over method of making ground coffee IE Caferiere, Aeropress, Drip fed.
....and this is where it gets a murky or milky as you like - another guideline for you
• If you prefer it black then go for a Single origin coffee (from a single known geographical location - such as a farm or estate)
• If you like to drink it with milk/cream go for a Blend
First, try your coffee black & add milk if you want to.... I hope you are still with me!
