Coffee Talk

My company is nice enough to provide us with an endless supply of free Green Mountain coffee. After a year and a half here, I've never swayed from my Colombian Free Trade K-Cup; it is presumably good for the world economy and, as an added bonus, tastes like coffee and not sludge.

But every morning, when I reach into the Colombian Free Trade caddy, I pull out French Roast. And then another French Roast. French Roast. French Roast. French Roast. French Roast. I start making little K-cup pyramids of all of these mis-stored coffees in my anger. You cannot mess with a girl's coffee - mess with me all you like AFTER I've had my coffee, but don't mess with my coffee!

Today, I gave in. Something in the depths of my being urged me to try the French Roast. And I am extremely ashamed to report that it was delicious. Completely blows away the Colombian I've been slurping down for 18 months....

It seems all along the Coffee Gods were telling me, "Try the French Roast - you won't regret it." But I do - I do regret it. I wish I'd never known what I was missing....

Nantucket Blend > Colombian Free Trade. Don't get me wrong, Colombian Free Trade is good (don't want to offend any Colombians here), but it doesn't compare to Nantucket. When we re-order, I'll save one for you. -AMR

i french roasted it this week (with someone's personal k-cup coffee maker) because of you. i then relayed this story to one of the owners, but i am sure it was not as interesting when i told it.
