Fresh, filtered, cool water is always the best choice when brewing a satisfying cup of coffee. (Wicked water will not enhance the taste, even if you are brewing wicked good coffee.) Distilled water is not a good choice, either, as it leaves the coffee tasting flat. For espresso, we recommend soft, not hard, water.

On the subject of water, how much water should you use? The recommended amount is 1 to 2 tablespoons of grounds to every 6 to 8 ounces of water. The difference between 1 and 2 tablespoons is a lot, so there is lots of room to experiment.

The reason coffee sages can’t be more specific about amounts of water to coffee grounds is not simply that everyone’s taste is different. Brewing methods are different and brewing temperatures are different from user to user and brewer to brewer. Sometimes coffee batches even differ, not that you ever need to worry that Wicked Coffees will be different from one bag to another.

Water is the carrier of your beans. It will pick up tastes left over in your coffee pot, be it aging coffee oils or incomplete rinsing of cleansers. A satisfying cup of coffee depends on wicked-clean water.

Adam and Eve with Wicked Coffee at Sunset Market

Is this the Wicked you asked for, Adam? Its the Devils Delight!


Don’t miss the fun when Wicked Coffees brings Adam and Eve to the farmers market or street fair near you. See more photos. And more.

Wicked Coffees are being served at the Carlsbad Village Fair Sunday November 6th, 2011 from 8AM to 4PM by Carlsbad Danish Bakery on Roosevelt at Grand. Get your photos as Adam and Eve this weekend!

More San Diego markets are wanting to feature Wicked Coffees. Visit Lillianna’s Delices Tuesdays in Mira Mesa, Wednesdays in Santee, Thursdays at UTC, Fridays at Kearney Mesa and Mission Hills, Saturdays at Golden Hills.  Ben the proprieter of Lillianna’s Delices  shares his love of French Moroccan food at these farmers markets as well as his favorite Wicked Coffees. Give Ben a wicked hug!

Congratulations to Wicked Coffees rewards cards holders. Sunday Oct 24th, Annie (who favors Organic Disciple) and Stephanie (who weekly buys a package of Jehovah Java) turned in their rewards cards to receive a free bag of coffee. It’s easy for locals to bring their rewards card and have it validated each time they buy one of our fresh roasted coffees at either the Saturday Carlsbad Farmer’s Market or the Sunday Leucadia Farmer’s Market. After ten purchases, they qualified for a free 12 oz bag of their favorite…or something new. Annie chose a bag of “Hell Fire.” Thanks for your support!

And behold, the Serpent which the Lord God created slithered toward Eve in the Garden of Eden and beguiled her asking, “What’s brewing?” And Eve said unto him, “It is dark roast coffee.” And the Serpent raised his eyes unto heaven after smelling the brew and pronounced, “Let there be wicked.”

And the Serpent, also being a creature of wisdom, tempted Eve, “If you drink of the brew, you will be able to stay up all night and create as God commanded.” And Eve drank of the brew and offered it to Adam saying, “Let us stay up all night and create as God commanded.”

God heard the commotion in the garden and said unto the man, “Who told thee thou wast naked? And did I not tell thee not to drink the liquor of the coffee tree lest thou know good and wicked?”

And Adam said, “The coffee bean which Eve brewed kept us up all night, so we hid from the light where we did not see we were naked. And the woman entreated me to procreate as Thou commanded.

So the Lord God relented and blessed the coffee tree saying to it, “Be fruitful and multiply.” And it was wicked good.

Hell Fire has hit the market, the farmers markets, that is, and the response has been inspired.

Hell Fire is our newest roast, a blend of the best Sumatran and Central American coffees, roasted to a triple dark shiny finish. As we say on the label, “As Dark As You Dare.” Not burned, not scorched, not smoky. Real dark flavor that kicks you into the dark side.

Hell Fire is presently only available as whole bean coffee in an eight ounce bag. Freshly roasted, darkly satisfying.
