Maybe it’s a dumb question, but I made French press coffee for first time using kicking horse smart ass beans, and the taste was very much like instant coffee.
It didn’t have the metallic taste you can get from instant coffee and was smoother and not bitter.
Also, the effect of the coffee was wonderful, I really felt picked up without any jittery feeling and very alert and focused.
I usually drink Tim Hortons, and I don’t get the same effect.
But, I really like the Tim Hortons flavour better. The French press coffee was very one note.
Maybe is the beans? Should I try a lighter blend? I’ll get through the ones I have now, maybe it will grow on me.
