Fortnum & Mason Coffee

This is not from Angel’s Cup subscription.  I was gifted this bag as a souvenir.

I’m not sure if Fortnum & Mason is considered a coffee roaster.  They sell a lot of what seems to be luxury food items and goods.  Regardless if they aren’t a true coffee roasting company, this bag of coffee was apparently grown in India.  India?  Ya it’s not one a popular country where you’d think coffee bean comes from but but it is within the “region” where coffee grows.

Anyways, the aroma wasn’t very spectacular as some of the previous bags I’ve tasted.  It had a subtle earth, nutmeg and chocolate aroma.   Grinding the beans however brought out a nutty aroma mixed with hints of berry.

After I made my latte, the first sip was amazing.  I almost immediately drank the rest of the latte and finished it with an intense feeling of wanting another cup.  The latte went down smoothly like I’m drinking water.  There is this subtle aftertaste of smooth dark chocolate that coats my mouth.  I think it’s this aftertaste that triggering feelings of wanting a 2nd cup.  Every time I’ve made this in the morning, I always get the same feeling of needing a 2nd cup.  These beans are deceptively delicious.
