November’s Angels Cup comes from a Lake Tahoe, CA roaster called Drink Coffee Do Stuff. I feel like their website or their motto is like of Coffee x Patagonia. They seem to be all about the outdoor activity with coffee as the fuel for these activities (which coffee obviously is, duh~).
If you aren’t tired of coffee beans from the Ethiopian Guji region, then here’s another one for you to read. I’ve noticed that upon opening a new bag of beans from the same region, I tend to smell the same or similar aromas from other roasters. I’m guessing this phenomenon is partially coincidental since the beans all come from one region. Slight aroma variations exist probably due to the way the roasters are roasting the coffee beans.
Opening the bag, I smell aromas of berries, nuts and chocolate. Taking a sip of the latte, I’m astounded at the overall smoothness and “drink-ability” of the latte. That first sip envelops my tongue with this berry and nut flavor. This flavor immediately transforms into chocolate milk. However, there is this pleasant berry after taste that just lingers at the back of the throat. Maybe out of habit now, but every time I make my latte, I want to want to savor every drop.
