The Drink: Barcelona from Kahve Koffee
Type: Whole Bean Blend
Overall Rating: 3.75 Out Of 5 Coffee Mugs
Today I woke up with a coffee called Barcelona from Kahve Koffee. It’s a blend of mostly French roasted beans and some light roasted beans mixed in. It doesn’t say where the beans are from, which always hurts the score a little bit in my book, but the smell and taste of this coffee made me over look that this time.
Barcelona had an aroma that was clearly dark roast, but it wasn’t at all a burnt smell like many French Roast coffees I’ve tried recently. It had a rich, inviting aroma with hints of chocolate, floral almost like a florist shop and a vegetable like lettuce.
One sip of the taste and I was sold. The front end of the sip was light and lively. That was followed by a deeper dark flavor. In the taste there was chocolate, honey and even a little bit of tea like flavor. The after taste was a pleasant dark roast taste, that invited me back for another sip.
Using my French Press, this coffee had a medium-heavy body.
The price for a 12 ounce bag at the Kahve Koffee website is $9.95, which is about average.
Overall, this coffee earned a well above average rating of 3.75. If you couldn’t tell, I really liked it. I liked it even enough to overlook the fact that it was one of those mystery blends. It did lose a little because their bag was a pain to open and didn’t have way to keep it closed. However, don’t let that stop you from trying a Kahve Koffee, because the thirty seconds of annoyance didn’t compare to the enjoyable cups of coffee that I’ve had.
