Peet's NEW JAVA - It's All About the Coffee
This will not be one of those reviews full of information about origin and complexity and soil and climate.
This is a review of the coffee. Plain and simple.
Last night on my way home, I stopped into Peet's for a pack of coffee filters. I used the last one yesterday morning. I usually use my automatic coffee maker during the week because it's just easier. And I'm always rushing. I know. I know.
Anyway, I noticed a display with a few bags of what was labeled "New Java." I'm thinking "New Java, as opposed to Old Java?"
To be perfectly honest, I've had Mocha Java many times, but I didn't even know there was such a thing as 100% pure java. See, I'm learning all the time. It's a process.
Anyway, I picked up a quarter pound of beans. That's one thing I absolutely love about Peet's. The people there never make you feel bad about ordering a quarter pound. I mean, it's 17.95 a pound and payday isn't until Friday. Just keeping it real.
I did ask the guy what the difference was between the Mocha Java and the New Java and he explained that the New Java isn't a combination of beans, but merely the pure java beans which gives it a bolder flavor.
So, this morning I overslept. Took some cold meds last night and didn't hear the alarm. Any-hoo, I stumbled to the kitchen (first things first) and made the coffee. Well, first I ground the beans which was easy to do because it was only a quarter pound so I poured the whole bag in there at once.
Oh. My. God. Talk about good. Well, this coffee is far beyond good. It's AWESOME. I poured some in my thermos to bring to work because I just didn't want the goodness to end.
I will end by telling you this - guess who's buying a pound of Peet's "New Java" on Friday?
p.s. - keep this under your hat, because it's a limited edition and I don't want the supply to run out before I get more!
