#FBloggerseries: @beanthereat


Welcome to the Food & Baker food blogger series, which every blogger, vlogger, tweeter is welcome because what human being doesn't like food(!?) This is a just a simple, quick and fun series of food related questions to just to get to know each other and meet new bloggers!

We are super grateful to everyone who are involved! Let's get started!

Introduction

We are Jamie and Sara of the Bean There at blog, a husband and wife team who share a passion for speciality coffee and café culture and like to fill our blog with the wonderful places and events that we find along the way along with the interesting people that we meet.


Why did you start blogging?

We started Bean There at to help us remember all the places that we’ve been and the wonderful coffee experiences that we’ve had along the way. Originally, it was only really intended to be a
journal for ourselves, but when a friend asked for a recommendation, it quickly became a blog of its own.

Three Random Facts

1. We both have a soft spot for the Swedish tradition of fika – to enjoy a coffee with a sweet pastry or treat.

2. Our wedding breakfast was tea and coffee themed.

3. We plan our travels around finding good coffee.




What is your most favourite meal in the world?


A meal that will always stand out for us was at a tiny and rather unexpected looking sushi place in San Francisco, called Ryoko’s Japanese, which looks like a cheap karaoke bar from the exterior, but after a 45 minute queue served us some of the best sushi we’ve ever had. Completely and utterly
worth the wait.


Are you more of a savoury or sweet kind of person?


We have very sweet teeth and recently discovered the joy of Australian Lamington’s – a light sponge
square coated in sweet icing and covered in coconut. They are exactly as good as they sound!


If you could travel anywhere in the world purely for its food, where would you go?


We would return to Melbourne, Australia in a heartbeat. We found both the variety and quality of food and drink places incredible. Melbourne has its own culture, but clearly draws upon a range of diverse international culinary tastes and we really loved the Asian influence. Add to that a speciality coffee culture that really leads the way in both volume and quality. We went to a talk the other day where a Melbourne based coffee roaster told us that he now believes the typical fit out cost for a Melbourne speciality café exceeds $500,000 Australian dollars.




What is your favourite meal in the day and why?


Breakfast, without a doubt, as the best coffee of the day is always your first of the day and we love all
of the traditional breakfasts, from granola and yogurt, to more traditional egg dishes, to the omni
present “smashed avo”, to a rather spicy chilli breakfast burrito that we made the other day.




Bean There at’s current Aeropress brew recipe


Requires an Aeropress, a grinder, 15g of fresh whole bean coffee and at least 300g of filtered or bottled water. We’re currently drinking a Rwanda Cyanika that we brought back from Kaffa Roastery
in Helsinki (https://www.kaffaroastery.fi/shop/products/rwanda-cyanika?taxon_id=47).

1. Fill your kettle with 300g of filtered or bottled water and heat to 86oC

2. Place an Aeropress filter paper into the cap of your Aeropress filter holder and rinse with hot water.

3. Place Aeropress plunger into Aeropress body and stand on the plunger (aka, the inverted method)

4. Weigh and grind 15g of coffee and tip into the body.

5. Pour 90g of water into the Aeropress, stir to ensure grounds are all soaked and start the timer.

6. At 30 seconds pour a further 150g of water in.

7. At 60 seconds stir lightly and put the filter cap on.

8. At 90 seconds place the cup on top of your inverted Aeropress and flip, holding onto the plunger, and begin depressing the plunger.

9. Aim to finish the plunge at 120 seconds.

Whats your favourite post of ours?


Peanut Butter Reese's Cupcake

We love the peanut butter reeces cupcakes review, but this might be biased because we have a very sweet tooth and we love peanut butter. We would definitely love to try these gorgeous looking cupcakes with a delicious fruity Kenyan filter, although we’d imagine the strong peanut butter flavour would inhibit our ability to taste the fruity berry like flavours in the coffee it would totally be worth it!
