Another randomly selected brew by my son from the Garner Greenhouse. It is a medium roasted exclusive blend and the information reads: Rich Bavarian Chocolate is accented by a slightly darker roast for this specialty flavored coffee.
I drank this coffee before when I got my first coffee grinder and it inspired me to start the coffee blog. I must say it doesn’t have a strong chocolate taste, though the beans do have a very noticeable aroma of chocolate. Still it does not have that terrible bitter aftertaste that the other Millstone Chocolate Velvet had.
First off when I hear Bavarian, I think of Bavarian Cream, and it is a bit creamy even without milk or sugar. It’s not a strong coffee, but the flavor isn’t weak. I’m not in love with this one as a black coffee, but I don’t hate it either. It’s tasty with sugar, but not overly chocolate. The chocolate doesn’t overwhelm the coffee and the coffee doesn’t overwhelm the chocolate. It’s a good marriage, and it works good with milk as well. Still, it doesn’t taste like you’re drinking a hot chocolate, but if you wanted it to taste like a hot chocolate why didn’t you just make hot chocolate instead, right? It’s a good coffee, not strong, but not low quality either.
