Review: Cuvée Coffee Ethiopia Cuberow (Austin, Texas)

I found this bag of Cuvée Coffee at a different Whole Foods location than I normally go to – they had a slightly different selection than my local store, but this was the freshest option. I had just had the Cuvée Brazilian, so I wasn’t really keen to buy another bag from the same roaster, but this […]

Review: PT’s Coffee Roasting Company Ethiopia Gedeo Natural (Topeka, Kansas)

Kansas might not be the state in the U. S. that first comes to mind when thinking about states with great coffee roasters, but I’ve been wanting to investigate coffee from PT’s for quite some time now, after seeing them mentioned on multiple “best of” lists over the past couple of years. It’s a new […]

Review: Cartel Coffee Lab Ethiopia Kochere (Phoenix, Arizona)

About half of my trip was spent in the capital city of Wellington. Wellington is an incredible city – it reminded […]

Review: The Missing Bean Unbirthday Blend (Oxford, England)

This tasting is a direct result of me getting to spend a little over a week in a dream destination for me (England) so though I’m going to remain as objective as possible about the coffee, I can’t help but smile when I think about just about everything related to this journey. Rose-colored glasses alert ahead! […]

Review: Case Coffee Roasters Guatemala Bella Carmona Antigua (Ashland, Oregon)

During my recent trip to Portland, I was sorely tempted to pick up a bag of coffee from Case Coffee Roasters when I spotted it at the Barista location I visited, but I had to exercise some restraint (if you can call 6 bags of coffee in 24 hours restraint). Ultimately, I decided to wait […]

Review: Counter Culture Kenya Kamavindi (Durham, North Carolina)

In the 6 months thus far that this blog has been around, the coffee review with the most page views has been the Counter Culture Hologram Espresso. I figured it was high time I revisit Counter Culture’s offerings, but this time I opted to try a single-origin versus one of their blends. Kenyan coffee has […]
