For Candler: It tastes like dirt, and I like it! :o)
Hello Gene and other coffee talkers. My friend Johanna gave me a gift card to the super-expensive grocery store across the street. Usually I walk in, look at all the pretty things, then laugh and walk out when I see how much it all costs. lol
So the gift card has been a fun toy for me. Yesterday I used it to buy a half-pound of Intelligentsia coffee, a varietal called Rwanda Musasa. It's an African coffee (duh). Earthy, with what I'd describe as a medium body. Not light like Central American coffees. Not sharp or smoky like a French Roast. I realized that it tastes sort of like dirt to me.....and that I like that! lol
That's my holiday coffee report. Gene, my friend Johanna received a gift of the same German offee that you'd recently purchased. Have you tried yours yet? I've gotta get Johanna to brew some for me. She says it's some of the best coffee in the world. That's some endorsement!
Yours in coffee,
