We are wired for adventure, searching for the next discovery, the next challenge. Whether it’s on a mountaintop, a rocky beach, on the edge of glacial lake surrounded by nothing by trees and open skies, or the wind whipping your hair on the sea, your coffee should be there with you. The coffee we enjoy today comes from a long history of adventure and exploration. Coffee has traveled the world through ancient trade routes, affairs of the European nobility and long sea voyages the world-over.
Discovered by a goat herder in 800 A.D., monks used to drink the beverage, made by grinding the berries into power and dissolving in water, to stay awake during long prayers. When the Arabs discovered the beverage in 1000 A.D., the brought it across the Red Sea and began drinking to ward off evil spirits. Coffee continued to make its way around the world through ancient trade routes and over raging seas. In the 1700s, coffee came to Central and South America thanks to a thieving French naval captain (who is said to have stolen a bean from Louis XIV’s “Nobel Tree”) and a Brazilian Lieutenant Colonel who received a coffee bean from the wife of French Guiana’s governor, with whom he was having an affair!
With a history so full of adventure, a great cup of coffee should have no boundaries, and now it doesn’t. Torch Coffee is excited to introduce Torch Adventure Coffee. Packaged in a light-weight package, Adventure Coffee is easy to carry and easy to make. You don't need to pack a Chemex or Aeropress to get that specialty coffee brew any longer. Adventure coffee offers you the ease and convenience without the overbearing equipment or messy cleanup. The foldable, pocket-sized filter was designed as a simple pour over, providing you with an amazing cup of coffee anywhere, anytime.
1. Choose your roast -Medium or Dark Roast!
2. Tear open the filter, pull the tabs and secure on your coffee mug.
3. Pour about 250mL (1 cup) of water over the grounds. Be sure to first wet all the grounds and let bloom for 30 seconds. (In the coffee world bloom means allowing the CO2 gases to escape for enhanced flavor). Then pour water to fill filter and let it seep down into the cup. Repeat 3x until cup is full.
4. Remove the filter and enjoy a delicious cup of coffee!
Available in both medium and dark roast, the beans are roasted to order and ground fresh to guarantee the same freshness and taste you enjoy at home.
