At PT’s Coffee, blondes have more fun. No, really.
When’s the last time you had a blonde coffee? What’s that, you say? Never? Well it’s about time that changes…
Okay, so maybe it’s not really a blonde roast… that stuff’s most often halted before first crack (and the ginger-colored grounds brewed with sugar and cardamom; it tastes like chai.) No matter what you call this extraordinary light-roasted, natural process Sidamo — cinnamon roast, New England roast, maybe — it’s spectacular.
Fresh from the grinder this coffee will fill your kitchen with the aromas of fresh strawberries and blueberries. Its flavors are a tremendous expression of fruit — sweet strawberry, blueberry and tart cherry — with an undercurrent of Cavendish tobacco. It’s body is mild (a fair trade-off what with that roast and all) and its finish is long, graciously tart and a teensy bit dry.
All in all it’s one remarkable coffee, and, I think, a testament to the skills on display at the roaster. A coffee this light could be a disaster! But this one’s a dream.
Highly recommended and a steal at under $17.00 a pound. So go get some while the gettin’s good.
