Please do not adjust your television sets … the Caffeine-Influenced Revolution will now commence…
In case you didn’t know, we pay a lot of attention to our customers and what they want and how they want it. In the past, our single estate filters, although we’ve been really proud of them, have been a relatively standard process with consistency being very dependant on temperature variables as much as ratio.
With these new V60s we are assured of a better, more stable, more consistent extraction with the reasons being the shape. Our current ceramic pour overs have three tiny holes in them and are very tricky to get an even extraction from, which can mean sometimes a very long overextraction which is not a good thing for you. The V60 has one large star shaped funnel hole in the middle with ridged sides which in turn helps us to ensure a faster extraction and less of a waiting time for you!
Now this alone is nothing short of incredible to know that Urban will be ensuring a far greater coffee experience, but to add into that mix is the fact that we are going to bring you some exciting coffees your way ; ‘San Jeronimo Catuai, De Chirripo Costa Rica’ is a very exciting coffee that myself, Aaran, Jamie, Katie and Simon have been enthused about before. ‘Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza’ and a ‘Maraba Bourbon Rwanda’ both compliment our new chosen method of filter extraction (as one of the best parts of a V60 is that you don’t lose those lighter notes) so if you want to be involved in the evolution of Urbans V60 filters all you have to do is ask!
