Blue Bottle Coffee Playlist This month’s coffee features notes of freshly grated orange peel subsiding into mellow notes of hazelnut with a big sweet flurry of fruit finish.
All the coffee beans from Blue Bottle comes in a resealable packaging, so you can maintain the freshness of the coffee beans for a long time, even without transferring them to another container.
Blue Bottle Coffee‘s notes do a great job of laying out the growing conditions and peculiarities of each coffee. More than any other coffee subscription, Blue Bottle tries to capture the feel and essence of its coffees rather than declaring flavor notes with absolute authority, but they do give you a good place to start. The tasting notes are usually dialed in pretty well.
These coffee beans vary greatly in color, from a chocolaty brown to an almost golden tan. Its variation is far greater than I have expected in a two bean blend, but that’s what makes it more interesting.
Looking closely, I can see a few smooth lighter beans and the scent, it’s truly fascinating!
Here it is after being ground and brewed! It has a very smooth finish and the aroma is just a delight to the senses. It is big and lush, and smells like dark berries.
This coffee also has a bold notes of hazelnut, orange peel, and brown sugar. I get an early bit of orange, but the big surprise is a giant note of blueberry that kicks in after half a second. It didn’t seem to fit with the profile as described, but it was so vivid.
Blue Bottle Coffee is really an amazing subscription for coffee lovers! This month’s featured coffee blend is bright and flavorful, which makes a perfect way to start every morning. The fruity notes make it unique and interesting as well. Another thing to love about this subscription is that they only send fresh coffee beans, with the roast date on the label to ensure you of that. The packaging is also resealable so it’s easy to keep it fresh! I’m pleased overall and I can’t wait to discover more coffee blends through this subscription!
