Recently I was asked to review Equal Exchange coffee. While I am not a huge coffee fan, I absolutely NEED it to help me get along in the morning! I was immediately interested in this coffee after reseach lead me to the following:
"Created by a genius in Philadelphia, this secret recipe delivers a sweet, sultry and smooth coffee with an unexpected bite and lasting finish. A smorgasbord of roasts in a combination of Latin American beans so fine it will make your heart pound. Feel the love!"
- Aroma: toffee, molasses, pipe tobacco, cocoa, cinnamon, brown sugar
- Flavor: complex, chocolate, brownies, chocolate covered strawberries, vanilla, winey
- Mouthfeel: velvety, fudgy, ganache
- Acidity: pronounced
- Aftertaste: chocolate, bitter
Have I told you yet that it is Organic? Love that. I tried Love Buzz and French Roast. This is STRONG coffee. I am accustomed to a milder breakfast blend type of coffee such as Dunkin Donuts coffee. My husband loves strong coffee. REAL coffee. This coffee is what real coffee drinkers would consider really good coffee.
