A recent delivery (arrival) of Sumatra Mandheling Gr. 1 - The coffee is rich and complex with a deep resonant body and distinct buttery character and a very pleasant touch of spice and red fruit on the aftertaste. This is my ideal as an afternoon or evening single-origin brew.
Just for kicks and giggles, we tried Caribou's new "Mahogany" blend. It's really dark, and not really anything special. Tastes like an average French roast, maybe Yemen Mocha and Sumatra. They say is has notes of cocoa and caramel, and I didn't get either. I got wood, burnt marshmallow, maybe ash. I didn't care for it, at all. Definitely like their "Obsidian" better.
A fresh, light roasted, french pressed cup of the Guatemalan Finca Vista Hermosa . I'm using a filtered water that's bringing out so incredibly much sweetness. Best way to start a Monday morning for sure.
This morning...a brewed cup of Cresecent Moon Coffee Roasters Breakfast Blend (RA Certified). A weel rounded coffee with nice caramel notes, black cherry and apricot, and a pleasent slightly sweet aftertaste. Nice!
