Proof of my coffee snobbery.... dedicated to Mom Blair
But wait... the Jedi Coffee Master has brought with him a message. Let's see what it says.
Luke, you are not a Jedi Master yet...
I'm not Luke- I'm Keith! I'm a Coffee Master.
and he has brought with him the secret powers of the Roast to aleviate the insurmountable odds facing his fellow baristas. May the Force be with you.
Turn to the Dark Roast... Keith
This is a multi-regional blend of coffees from Latin America and Asia. This is different than holiday blends from years past, simply because Starbucks decided to use an aged Asian blend from Indonesia. These Asian beans sat in a warehouse for 5 years prior to roasting. The aging process results in a smokey and cedary aroma. This makes this coffee perfect for sharing after dinner dessert with your family infront of the fire place. The spices that are evident hints to a bit of cinnamon and a very slight undertone of nutmeg. As the coffee cools, the nutmeg becomes more evident. Try this one with a splash of egg nog instead of cream. This coffee pairs great with Starbucks pepperment brownies or cranberry bliss bar.
Sound festive? You can get some at your local Starbucks establishment, by clicking the link to Starbucks Store on the right, or by visiting the Vulhop homestead sometime before we drink it all ourselves.
