From two years ago today in Bloggle’s wayback archive…
For her morning cup, herself brewed some of Green MountainÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Wild Mountain Blueberry, which as flavored coffees go, doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t suck. This is not faint praise, but my own inner struggle with flavored coffees. [Yes, I know folks have been flavoring beans since time beganÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ but too many flavored coffees strike me as so much potpourri.] And then, herself kind soul that she is brewed some of ye olÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Mocha Java of Yore for my to-go cup.
As a result my to-go cup featured blueberry nuances such that I might taste were there some dry-processed Ethiopian Harrar in the blend. While the net effect of this particular cup was quite complimentary, it was also a warningÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ had this been a Hazelnut incident, it might have led to cross words and great sorrow.
Repeat after me, people: natural and flavored coffees shouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t share the same grinder!
