Cold Press Coffee Pumking



"Cold press coffee is a lengthy process, but it results in a smooth coffee flavor with nutty, cocoa & chocolatey notes. Add these scrumptious tones to Pumking’s biscuity, pumpkin pie spices & you’ve got something extra special for fall. The cold brew process creates a perfectly balanced & distinctively smooth coffee taste. Many coffee beers are made using beans on the hot side- but not ours. A cold brew leaves behind the bitter acids and some fatty oils that can lead to a harsher, more vegetal taste transfer, and instead, highlights the roasted, comfortable coffee taste we all love. This, paired with the perfect pumpkin pie spice in our imperial Pumking ale creates the entire picture in just one sniff and sip. Cold Press Coffee Process: A roasted coffee bean contains many compounds that are extracted when it comes in contact with heated water (or wort in this case). Some of those compounds, including certain oils & fatty acids, are soluble only at a high temperature. During the cold brew process, coffee beans are never exposed to high temperature. At only 30 IBU, cold press brewing extracts the delicious flavor compounds (& some of the caffeine) from coffee beans, but leaves behind myriad bitter oils and biting fatty acids. These are the same bitter acids & fatty oils that surface to the top of a hot cup of coffee, and give hot-brewed coffee that familiar ‘bite’, thus the reason people attempt to soften the acidic taste with cream in their coffee."

Community (Season Reviews)

When fast-talking lawyer Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) finds his degree has been revoked, he is forced to go back to school at Greendale Community College. Hoping to score points with a pretty coed, he invents a study group and invites her to join it. Imagine his surprise when she's not the only one who shows up for help with Spanish from the "board-certified tutor" he proclaims himself to be. Though his command of the language is anything but good, the members continue to meet and end up learning a lot about themselves.

Check out this series of six season reviews. I will eventually follow up with individual reviews for each episode of the series at a later date.
