Coffee Snob 1.2
Got me some new coffees to review!First from Boston Common Coffee was the Guatemala Antigua Panchoy. The is named from the area it is grown which is the oldest coffee producing lands in the country. The coffee is a mix of fairly complex flavors but all are subtle enough to not really notice, rather it stirs into a single flavor that I found smooth and yummy. It seems to be comprised of nuance hints of spice, smoke, flowers and something sweet. But again it’s really subtle and nothing like a “flavored” coffee you might get from a chain.
The second coffee is the Congo Microlot. What’s a Microlot you ask? It’s a special and best area of a farm. So Boston Commons Coffee get the best of the best of this areas coffee and it pays off with a really great brew. It has a hint of something sweet like agave but also something tart. It’s got a touch more of a richness than the two others but I really love that because it gives a stronger darker brew. Or maybe I just brewed it stronger as I was training pretty hard at the time. Again it not a strong flavor, but you can sip it and feel like there is a complexity to it.
The last coffee was the Boston Common Holiday Blend. A true blend of different areas the key to this is the flavor it has. Carmel, fruitiness and chocolate make you feel like Will Farrell from Elf making it himself and saying to you “smiling is my favorite.” It’s the perfect start to the 12 days of Xmas or the 8 crazy nights of Hanukkah. It’s not sickly sweet like a chain dessert coffee
So it’s awesome in the morning but for a few weeks even the morning should have a taste of sweetness! Get some next year so you can wake up with some holiday spirit.
