Today I am featuring a tasty bean from the folks over at Quantum Coffee Roasters. Quantum Coffee was started by Fidel and Diana Moreno. They are full time teachers in San Antonio, Texas teaching Physics and Math, respectively. Besides having a passion for education, they also have a passion for finding the best green coffee that can be sourced and roasting it just right. Their story begins when one day in class, a student asked if they would be interested in sampling some coffee he had roasted. Being completely intrigued and surprised that anyone would roast their own coffee, they responded with a quick yes! They had experienced the true flavors that coffee had to offer besides dark, darker, and darkest! They were hooked on freshly roasted coffee that hadn't been burnt down to its carbon backbone.They purchased the student's espresso machine, grinder and coffee roaster when he went off to college. Just like he did, they started giving away samples of their own roasted coffee and soon started selling it as the demand grew. They started up Quantum Coffee Roasters out of their kitchen, and with lots of love and attention to detail, they have turned it into a great little coffee roasting business. This is their washed Guatemala, Huehuetenango bean. I brewed this at my 1:12 ratio. Quantum notes flavors of milk chocolate, walnut, & brown sugar. This was a nice, full bodied cold brew. Dark honey & nutty. Deep stone fruit flavors. Sweet & smooth like caramel, this was very tasty. This would also be great with some cream to compliment those chocolate/caramel notes. Many thanks to Fidel & Quantum for the tasty beans. Have one more from these guys I'm stoked to share with everyone soon.
The goal that I thought when I was a child does not change.
Unfortunately, however, the mental age did not change either.
it makes you smile.

Take me baaaaaack. I’m always quite happy to get home after a holiday.. as Dorothy succinctly put it, ‘There’s no place like home.’ Then a week later reality sinks in and I want to be on holiday again, exploring new places and finding the sweetest coffee shop corners. This was Kyoto, definitely worthy of a revisit as I feel we only scratched the surface. Are you planning any trips? (I’m always planning trips...)
