When Do Reindeer Dance? When They're Drinking Klatch Coffee, Of Course!
I can't remember where I first learned about Klatch Coffee. I think maybe on twitter. I mean isn't that where we get our news these days?
Anyway, I'm trying as many holiday roasts as I can fit in this year. Not the "usual suspects," but micro- roasted lots.
I'm fairly certain I've had this Reindeer Blend from Klatch before, but I don't remember what it was like. So, I ordered a bag to see if it was as good as the other Klatch Coffees I've had.
The first thing I noticed was that the beans were lighter than I expected. It's been my experience that "holiday" roasts, are usually darker. However, I could smell the freshness the minute I opened the bag.
I grind it up and brew it in my automatic drip because I'm too lazy to do a pour-over this morning. And while I'm drinking my coffee and checking my emails, I realize that half the cup is gone. And then I think, 'Oh, wait. I'm supposed to be writing about this, so what is it I taste?'
I taste delicious hearty coffee with subtle smoothness. The bag says "chocolate undertones," but I don't detect chocolate. I do detect a medium body blend with a bold body flavor.
I can certainly see those reindeer dancing when they drink this one. I'm not dancing but my fingers are definitely awake.
