Some clients send the greatest things!
HUGE thanks to Emma & Hugh Hughes (see the Fine Art Session of Hugh’s Big Dog Ridgback) who sent me this awesome bag of coffee a week and a half ago…
Wouldn’t you know that my bean grinder took a turn for the worse a while ago – I have had a bag of coffee beans from North Carolina on my shelf from my Mother in Law for a few months now, once I received this bag, I had a reason to go buy myself a new bean grinder – after all, two bags of coffee beans that needed a grindin’ certainly justified the purchase. I love it. It’s new and shiny.
I know that Hugh and Emma have been waiting for a consensus on the coffee. My pot is filled with this coffee today and I think it’s delicious. Not as strong as it claims (there is no real “DANGER”) but that could be that I went a bit easy on the grind AND I also didn’t use *too* much because based on the packaging I thought with one cup I may be awake for a week – for the most part, however, the packaging claims are mostly true – it is indeed “Soft and Silky”.
Better than Starbucks? Well, that’s hard to say being that I have been addicted to Starbucks for a while now. However, to be completely fair, I’m willing to go to the end of the bag without having ONE CUP of Starbucks Coffee and I’ll give a final analysis when the bag is done. Now, I know many of you don’t know me personally, but for me, this is a huge sacrifice.
Disclaimer: That is, of course, unless one day I feel like a Grande Skim Sugar Free Gingerbread Latte – Clearly this bag of coffee can’t handle that craving and I reserve the right to indulge during the holiday season. 😉
I performed a search on Lost Dog Coffee and found only a listing (wish I found a website) – as I had heard that the coffee house was decorated from top to bottom with anti-Starbucks bumper stickers but couldn’t find anything but this article and this photo.
Thanks guys, it was a very thoughtful gift – I’m always up for a coffee challenge!
