I order my coffee online. I found that supermarket coffees and even coffee shop coffees are not as fresh as what is delivered to my house by an online roaster. Of course, I do run into that occasional rut where I forget to order my coffee on time and oh my gosh, we run out! That’s what happened the other day, much to my horror. So, where does one go when one needs really good coffee beans? Whole Foods, of course. Their Allegro coffee is the only one I’ll buy if I run out of my stash. So, off we went. We were making our way through the store when I came across a coffee sample/demo station. What luck! The chap manning the demo table was from a local coffee roasters in Boulder called Conscious Coffees, Apparently, they won the 2010 Micro Roaster Award from Roast Magazine. He had samples of their Organic Sumatra and Organic Mexican. I bought a pound of each and am currently drinking the Organic Sumatra. Oh, is it good. Its dark and smooth with smoky, syrupy flavours. I am not usually a big fan of dark roasts but this one is so smooth and goes down so easy, its very drinkable. I think I may have found myself a local coffee supplier! I do love my online espresso beans though, so I will still use my favourite online coffee peeps CoffeeAm for my espresso and cappuccino needs.
I promise, my next post will be about something other than coffee and may even include a recipe!
