She Drank Peter Asher Black Velvet Blend Coffee*
So many coffees. So little time. I can't believe how many roasters are out there that I don't know about. That can only mean one thing - I must vow to continue my journey in search of locating and tasting every good coffee on the planet. That could take a lifetime. So, that's what I'll do.
When I learned of Peter Asher Coffee and Tea, naturally the first thing I did was check out their website. The signature alone says, "classy." But what does a wonderful website and a great signature have to do with a great cup of coffee? In the case of Peter Asher it's a sign of what's to come.
I've been drinking the "Black Velvet" roast all week and I can't pull myself away from it. I have a couple of other new blends I want to try, but the Black Velvet just keeps calling my name.
It's deep and dark but not the kind of deep and dark that just overpowers the palate. This is smooth as silk. I would go so far as to call it romantic.

Just because you don't live in Champaign, Illinois doesn't mean you don't deserve to be happy.
(*Well, maybe she didn't drink Black Velvet, but I'm sure if it had been around, she would have)
Here's to good coffee!
