One Cup, or 500???
September 29, 2012 Leave a comment
It’s National Coffee Day, so in honor of this wonderful day, and because I haven’t done one in an awfully long time, I’m going to do multiple reviews in Coffeelog! I intended on OD’ing on every available coffee in my house, starting with a mystery bag of coffee grounds I found that isn’t labeled, but though it wasn’t a huge variety, apparently 8-10 cups of caffeine is all my body can do at the moment. Besides, how useful would I be if my heart stopped?
So, without further ado, CoffeeLog!
Mystery Cup of Joe + Cup O’ Flavor
First off, I found a bag in my cabinet that contained almost enough coffee grounds to make a decent 5-cup pot of coffee. But I won’t drink weak coffee on this day of days, so I found a package of cheep hotel room coffee lying around called Cup O’ Flavor by Farmer Brothers. Let me just say, I should have known better. The grounds from the Farmer Brothers brand Coffee were much finer ground than the other, so I assume the flavor I get, is from that. I like my stuff strong, but this is ridiculous! The other coffee is overpowered, I can’t hardly taste it, and this coffee is giving me a headache. I probably just made it too strong, cause this stuff feels like I could walk on it! I’m going to bottle up what I have left and hope for a decent mix with another coffee to make Iced Coffee later, since the day is warming up…Next!
Yay! I didn’t over do it this time! This coffee was given to me by my brother-in-law, and I found that I enjoyed it, every last bean. Maybe it was the floral, sweet nuts, and pineapple! Whatever it was, I could drink this black and not cringe. Of course my favorite way to take my coffee is creamed and sugary, but just like with my men, I can enjoy all types! This coffee stands up to milk and sugar just fine.
Ending the Day with Iced Coffee
It tastes doable! I can’t say too much about it, but once I added the second coffee to the first, overloaded it with sugar and gave it just a hint of milk, it made a great iced coffee for after mowing my lawn!
