Grind:

We are excited to announce the return of this Firebat classic, and even more excited about how this year’s crop has turned out.  This year’s El Ausol produces a more complex and full bodied cup.  The notes of milk chocolate are richer and the body is more robust, allowing it to shine as both a stellar filter roast, as well as a great espresso base for lattes and cappuccinos.  We are excited to have this coffee back in our lineup and can’t wait for you to try it for yourself.

This great bourbon bean comes to us from the traditional coffee region of Apaneca, in El Salvador. Leo Muyshondt descends from five generations of coffee producers and has great devotion to quality. When looking for a balanced and smooth coffee, El Ausol is yours to try!

Roasted for any brew method.

More Info

The Bean. All beans are shade-grown and were hand-picked when ripe, sorted by hand and sun-dried on the patios. After harvest, the coffee was washed to remove the cherry and fruit mucilage covering the bean, and then spread on the patios and turned regularly to allow slow, even drying of the beans for 7 to 10 days. Washed processed coffees are known for their clean and vibrant notes.

The Roast. This bourbon washed delivers a clean and balanced cup leaning to the cacao and sugary notes of the legendary great bourbon variety. This well rounded, classic coffee brews a rich cup with sensible but pleasant acidity, and full body. It is a crowd-pleaser and makes a great choice for your morning or afternoon brew. Different brewing methods will highlight different aspects of each roast, making each cup unique. As a starting point for brewing this versatile coffee we suggest a 15:1 water to coffee ratio, with water below boiling point.

Ingredients

100% whole bean decaf coffee.

    Whole Bean Grind Chart

    If you are purchasing a bag of whole bean coffee on our website, you can select your grind method of choice (at no extra charge!) from the dropdown and we will grind and ship it to you. We grind the beans freshly for you at our warehouse in ECS Coffee Burlington right before your order is shipped, and reseal the package to maintain optimal freshness in transit.

    If you are visiting us in store, you can also request for your beans to be ground in store before you take them home.

    We use a commercial BUNN Burr Grinder to grind the beans.

    Please note: Freshly ground coffee is non-refundable and not returnable. To ensure that you receive a ground coffee that is consistent with your brew method of choice, refer to our Grind Chart below! 

    FINE

    For use with espresso machines. Fine coffee grinds will have the size and feel of sand.

    MEDIUM FINE

    Choose a medium fine grind if you are brewing with a Moka Pot, stovetop espresso brewers or an Aeropress.

    MEDIUM

    Cone Filter - We use two medium settings depending on your brewer. The Cone Filter medium setting is a bit finer, and is suitable for pour-over drip brewers (cone style) such as Hario, Melitta, Clever. It is also used for cone style automatic brewers.

    Flat Bottom Filter - This setting is suitable for coffee machines with a flat bottom basket filter, such as commercial automatic drip machines. It is also an appropriate setting for if you have a refillable coffee capsule for use in Keurig® machines. Medium coffee grinds will be around the same size as sea salt.

    PERCOLATOR

    If you are brewing with a percolator, the grind setting is a bit coarser than your standard medium grind, to minimize grinds making it through the filter. We use a percolator-specific setting on our grinder.

    MEDIUM COARSE

     Vaccuum brewers, Chemex. 

    COARSE

    For french press, cold brew coffee. A coarse grind is very chunky in look, like crushed peppercorns.

    Remember that this coffee grind chart is a guideline! If you use a coffee brewing method that is not listed here, feel free to reach out and we will let you know which grind is the best for your brewer.
