you all know that i’m a coffee drinker, but my sweet hubbers is more like a coffee connoisseur. for his birthday this year, he asked for some jamaican blue mountain coffee, a particular kind of coffee that is only grown on one mountain in the entire world. currently, it’s market value is about $50 per pound, so i thought ok, i can splurge on that, just this once (i think i bought this one). boy was THAT a mistake!! it was the best.coffee.ever. i wasn’t sure how we would go back to normal life after we finished the bag. back to bitter, dry or oily beans. i cringed at the thought. well after we finished our bag of pure bliss, we made it through a bag of some kind of ultra underwhelming beans and then to my surprise, found something surprisingly delicious. after visiting milwaukee wisconsin for a bike race, my mister brought home some nerve tonic coffee from the anodyne coffee roasting company located there. and i am very impressed! it works wonderfully in our espresso machine and is smooth, light and very possibly my new favorite. it will at least suffice until we are wealthy enough to live on jamaican blue mountain coffee (which will happen.. let’s see.. never).
do you have a favorite coffee? anything you would highly recommend?
