Starbucks Reserve (R) Sumatra Blue Batak - Living for the Weekend

It's the little things that make a big difference.  Like this hot cup of Starbucks Reserve Sumatra Blue Batak I'm enjoying this morning.

It was a particularly rough week at work and I was feeling like I needed something to make me feel better.  So, I stopped off at the Starbucks Clover store and picked up something special.

At 15.95 for an eight ounce bag, it's on the more expensive side, but sometimes you have to treat yourself.

I've had this particular reserve before, but the 2014 Roast delivers on its promise:  "Smooth and earthy with deep, syrupy body and sweet herbal notes."

Living for the weekend.


"For centuries Batak tribe members in the Lintong district on Lake Toba’s southern shore—Sumatra’s prized coffee-growing region—have cultivated big, bold coffees like this one in their backyard gardens.
After the ripest cherries are handpicked, they’re painstakingly wet-hulled in small batches. This unique processing method, which requires constant attention due to humid climate, gives the unroasted beans a distinct blue tint and contributes to the complex herbal flavor, redolent of the lush, fertile land.
This Starbucks Reserve® coffee is available only at select times and stores, so be sure to enjoy it when you can."
