Variety Coffee Roasters

I’ve been drinking the beans from Variety Coffee Roasters for about a week now.  It is unexpectedly packaged in this bright red box that I wouldn’t have thought it would contain coffee despite the labeling.

Initially opening the bag rewarded me with a whiff of fresh roasted coffee beans as a sweet addictive smell.  Maybe I’m just addictive to the smell of coffee?

Making the latte, I was initially disappointed with the first sip.  It doesn’t have as much nuttiness like Peixoto and is fairly mild yet smooth.  But I’m very impressed at the aftertaste.  After each sip, there is a vanilla aftertaste that grows that makes me want to drink more.  And then my cup is empty.
