A year ago I made a decision to try and drink my coffee black. It was a financial decision because my daily mocha was adding up. So when my wife suggested I go every other day, I figured there was something I could do to maintain my morning ritual. I looked at the prices of regular coffee and decided I could do this and save some money. Then came a promotion Tonx coffee ran, they offered a Hario V60 and a free sample of their coffee. This began the journey of loving coffee.
I dabbled with the Tonx beans and didn’t know where to start after my free trial ran out. My local cafe did pour overs so I started picking their brains, but then realized they were a bit limited in their knowledge. So I decided to take my questions to twitter and after some quick back and forth I figured I should get into the entry level market to do my own pour overs. My wife bought me a refurbished Baratza grinder and I began doing hand crafted coffee. I slowly started putting together what seemed like a chemistry set.
Today my setup is very different than I started with but it is because of the generosity of Tonx that I enjoy coffee at the level I do today. Without something like a free V60 I would have never ventured into the coffee world. Tonx is an amazing company, they mirror a lot of the industry. I’ve reached out to Able Brewing and have received expert help with how to dial in a great cup of coffee. I love coffee and it’s because companies in this space don’t just want to sell you their products they want you to love coffee and they are willing to go the extra length to do so.
