I made coffee this evening. I don't usually have coffee in the evening but I really felt like some. What I really feel like is a chocolate chip cookie/vanilla ice cream sandwich with Hershey's chocolate syrup but, since I don't have that, I'll settle for coffee.
I bought some new coffees recently from Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. As much as I enjoyed the BloggersFuel coffee I got gratis from Boca Java this spring, I'm much more impressed with Green Mountains offerings. I ordered all decaf coffees, as I try to keep the caffeine to a reasonable level. I got my coffee two days after I ordered it! I ordered my caffeinated Boca Java coffee the same evening and it still hasn't arrived (about a week ago).
What I'm enjoying tonight is Green Mountain's Vermont Country Blend. I'm no coffee aficionado but I know what I like. This blend excites me so much I even pulled out the stainless steel diner creamer I found in Dad's basement after he died this spring and one of my favorite mugs. Funny, how I have to make what GE calls "four cups" to get just one for my favorite mugs. (Mugs. Mugs. Admittedly, I have a drinking ware fetish.) Since I have no idea what the proper terminology is, I'll just describe why I enjoy this blend.
I love the way this coffee hits my tongue. It's very pungent...this must be the acidity. It's a rather strong blend and has a lot of body. You really know you're drinking coffee with a cuppa this, despite adding a little cream. (A very little cream is how I take it, if I should ever drop by.) There is an aftertaste, slightly bitter but still very pleasant. The aroma of the fresh-ground beans is to die for.
Damn, but I wish I had that ice cream sandwich!
