COFFEE: What are you drinking?
 
Kind of like the other themed threads.


El Salvador HG; pressed

Raging Sage (local) Holiday Blend
dont know if I like it. I can count three different beans visually. A little too dark of a roast for me.

We've been using up some Tanzanian Peaberry (pre-ground :( ) that my mother handed me as she thought it was too bitter.

We received a Starsucks Holiday blend, that I'm dreading to grind...

Received a pound of Jammy Blue Mountain for Christmas.

Bought a 1/2 pound of "Pacific Rim Blend" from Whole Foods recently. It was so fresh and oily that I just couldn't pass it up. I was actually there to buy a bunch to give my brother.
I told him when he got the big ziplock bag and (by force) unwrapped them - they were still offgassing!

I was told by an employee it was aged Sumatra this year for thier holiday blend. I had some in a press while I was there and it was decent.

This is Guatemala Hue Hue25%, Colombian Patron50%, and Costa Rican La Magnolia25%....I should have went a lot darker with this roast.....or a higher % of the Colombian. This has some good caramel, chocolate notes in my drip machine.

Good to know, Thanks!! Maybe we will try it soon.
Has anyone else had it? Does it have the typical Starbucks 'burnt' taste to it?



Just poured some Whole Foods Naragansett Blend in the grinder this morning.
I needed a break from the Tanz-Peaberry. It's a nice smooth flavor profile, but I needed a little more today - it's Friday afterall.

I liked it. Wasn't the best I have ever had, but I still drank the whole cup.

Wow...can't get much fresher than that. :dr

I've been on a HUGE Asia/Pacific coffee kick lately. I really like Starbucks Komodo Dragon which is bold with a very spicy note to it.

Got some french roast from a local roaster on Monday from Whole Foods. It was delivered to the store that day and looked very fresh. In fact, it was so oily it was almost dripping.

I didn't care for it. I think I just don't like french roasts though. Anyway, I mixed it with some 8 o'clock coffee columbian at about 1 part french to 2 parts 8 o'clock and it was actually pretty darn good that way.

Ethiopia DP Haile Selassie Sidamo roasted to city+, shots pulled at 202f, heavenly with a loooooong after taste. Funny thing is this bean is just average brewed as drip or moka but transcends as espresso.

Different stroke for different folk, grinded all 2.9lbs I had left and put it in the compost pile. Way to dark of a roast for me.

I can see how some peeps will like this, though.
