Koffeeology

December 13, 2018

Hello food truck nation!

Espresso yourself! Do you ever look at coffee as just a mere tool to get through your mornings? Well, think again… We got the chance to meet up with the guys from Koffeeology and got to really know the process behind brewing the perfect cup of Joe. Carlos Zapata and his crew are bring their amazing coffee from their farm in Colombia to the streets of Miami. And, we couldn’t be happier!

Koffeeology is giving the term “farm to table” a whole new meaning. Their coffee is harvested on their farm located at 1,500 meters high on the misty mountains of Bogota, Colombia (how much more authentic can it get?!). Carlos’ grandmother purchased the farm and coffee making has been in their family for three generations now. Carlos’ father took over the farm when his grandmother could no longer tend to it and decided to expand and sell their coffee. Their farm consists of approximately 125 acres of just different coffees. Their producing tons of Arabica beans on their farm as well as some specialty options like mocha, Katura and Variedad Colombia. Arabica coffee tends to be easier to grow and does not have a bitter taste.

Carlos grew up drinking coffee with his family such as café con leche (coffee and milk) and had a bit of a shock when he was introduced to the other side of coffee… The scientific side, if you will. There are tons of factors that go into producing flavorful coffee beans such as climate and location. The whole process is quite intricate because if one part is messed up, it can affect the rest of the beans. So, why the name “Koffeeology”? Carlos wanted a fun name that played into the whole science part of the production of the perfect coffee bean. He likes to think of Keffeeology as the study of coffee. That’s one subject I know I’d be awake for!

You can guarantee that Koffeeology’s best known for their authentic espressos. I mean the foundation for every cup of coffee at Koffeeology is expresso, and these coffee connoisseurs have pretty much mastered that part. Carlos is the main barista on the Koffeology truck, so you can find him on most nights brewing coffee for the masses. Since we are located in Miami, FL, we did not find it hard to believe that their most requested coffee are their iced coffee drinks like iced lattes and cappuccinos. They been playing with different methods on how to get the coldest cup of coffee. Some of those methods include steaming the milk first and then pouring it directly over the ice and the other was the traditional method of blending the ice into the coffee at the end.

Koffeeology certainly has some big plans to expand and bring their signature Colombian coffee to the tristate area, Seattle and California. They are also planning to introduce pastries, like churros, to their food truck to compliment the coffees. So, be on the lookout for more information from them! We want to thank the guys at Koffeeology for taking the time to sit with us and preparing some amazing cups of coffee for us to taste. They’ve got just the thing to satisfy all your caffeine needs.

Until next time,

Kellee O.
