BeanBrewding reviewed The Single Guys
For the full review that contains fabulous photos visit the Bean Brewding blog post http://bit.ly/UB24g6 The Single Guys is situated across the road from Kenmore State School on a busy roundabout. Just look for the stag. We met Ben who was former part owner of One Drop Specialty Coffee over a year ago. The Single Guys beans he imports directly, which Ben says cuts costs for cafes. Time for drinks. The V60 filtered El Salvador El Martillo was nicely presented in the V60 Range Server, the flavours were delicate and showcased The Single Guys passion for single origin roasting. They also offer iced coffees (black or white) made on the V60 that is filtered with cane sugar into ice cubes. The specially roasted Honduran delivered a refreshing and mellow drinking option. Mocha Mate went for the mocha on the House Blend that uses Bunker dark chocolate - another sweet marriage. The mocha was sublime and is top of the list for our next 'Best of' edition.

Ben explained honey processed is a method synonymous with Costa Rica which involves taking the pulp off and then naturally sun drying the beans without washing the fruity mucilage off. Costa Rican is usually a milder coffee and so this process gives a sweetness to improve it. The doppios got better with time and displayed a good smooth acidity, easy to drink and a pleasing sweet aftertaste.
