Everything in my August 2019 box!
The coffee I received based on my answers was PLAYLIST!
Blue Bottle Coffee’s notes usually do a great job of laying out the growing conditions and peculiarities of each coffee, although this one was missing any country of origin details. 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.
Blue Bottle Coffee Playlist Blend I can’t really find a link for this coffee online, just the tasting notes.
The bags have a seal that you tear across the top and then you can reseal after scooping out your beans.
The bags look the same every month but they do have a sticker on the front so you know which flavor is inside. My daughter is the coffee drinker in the house and she was excited to see those unusual flavor notes.
The beans smelled really good! Gemma cranked her beans in a grinder by hand and prepared the coffee in a drip maker. She said she was disappointed in this particular blend and thought that it didn’t taste anything like the notes. In her opinion, it tasted like regular coffee, which I think means similar to what you can get at the grocery store.
Maybe it’s time to change up preferences for our Blue Bottle Coffee – sometimes a little tweaking is all that’s needed to get a flavor profile that most closely fits our tastes. Even though the flavor fell flat this month, it was still a good all-around coffee and the beans were freshly roasted and sealed well.
