Brewing my first pot of “Hines Coffee”

Actually it came from Caffe Misto on Foul Bay Avenue in Victoria B.C. Canada.

And it was a blend just for me. A half-caf espresso blend.

My first test with it is in the Newco OCS-8 thermal carafe brewer.

Anyone who is truely serious about their coffee – serious coffee drinkers that is, well – they use a Newco OCS-8 or a Dutch made wonder called the Technivorm.

The Newco (and Technivorm) infuse the coffee with water that is between 196 and 205 degrees (close to the latter generally)

If you are not brewing your coffee with water at the right temperature… well, you might as well be drinking coffee flavored Kool-Aid.
