Some days the Lego guys need to bring the coffee.

It's Mistobox time again!!  This month's selection is Colombian 'la palmita' from Noble Coffee Roasting.  A very balanced cup with nice sweetness and not overly acidic.  I'm liking it as an afternoon cup, smooth and not overbearing.  Mistobox is a very cool coffee service sending you high quality coffee from some of the countries best roasters. This particular shipment was roasted on the 16th of Feb and I received on the  20th, that's pretty much perfect.  If you'd like to experience new coffees head over to mistobox.com and use code x7xj to get $10 off your first shipment.

I'm going to be posting more detailed coffee reviews with tasting notes on a pintrest board soon, specifics coming shortly!

Peace

Atlas Coffee Club February shipment PERU

     I've been checking out a new coffee subscription service, Atlas Coffee Club.  The concept is pretty cool, you get a monthly coffee shipment from a different coffee producing country. You also get a post card highlighting that country and an information card about the coffee.
     This month my coffee is from the Cajamarc region of Peru, produced by El Palto.  It's a nice coffee with some caramel and fruit notes, maybe a little nutty. The info card flavor profile says, caramel, almond and pear.
    I made it with a Chemex, and with a French Press.  The French press brings out some of the subtler notes, but I'm a big fan of pourovers.  Overall a great coffee from a country I rarely get coffee from. I'll put up more about Atlas and their coffees in the future.

Peace
