Brewing On Location Part 1 - "Oscar Mike"

Hello coffee lovers, I've been pondering a series to add to the blog and this will be the first installment of "Brewing On Location" where we will be out and about brewing our Camp Coffee Roaster coffees.  We will be in the woods, on the road, and all over.  Nothing fancy , just going to go out and find some good places to share some great coffee with some exceptional people.

Today I was "Oscar Mike" that's a military term for "on the move" in the motor pool at an Army unit in an undisclosed location.   We had an Aeropress, a blade grinder, a K cup brewer for hot water and an old Bunn glass pot to pour from ( like I said, nothing fancy...) Oh and our M-88 recovery vehicle.  I met up with Sergeant Wag and Sergeant J and we gathered the resources available to enjoy one of my test blends I'm working on.  It's gonna be a bold and buttery coffee that our dark drinkers are sure to love.  We didn't have scales or a perfect temp on the water but the coffee was right on time.  The Aeropress created a smooth cup with a rich body and that lingering, buttery mouthfeel that put a smile on our faces .  A big thanks to the guys for taking the time to find such a sweet spot to enjoy a great cup of coffee with some old friends.  I spent a year in Iraq with these 2 guys and I couldn't think of a better way to start this series.  That's one of the things I love about good coffee, drinking it is always nice BUT sharing it with good friends is even better.

Camp Coffee will have this blend on the shelf soon as well as online so keep an eye out.  Still searching for the perfect name for this blend too so  feel free to comment if you have any ideas.  If I end up using the name you suggest I'll send you a bag of it.    Stay tuned for more... Cheers!
