According to the card, this month’s featured coffee is Bella Donovan.
The back of the card features the tasting notes and brewing suggestions.
Blue Bottle Coffee Bella Donovan Blend ($29) This month’s featured coffee is one of Blue Bottle’s flagship blends, Bella Donovan.
These coffee beans are made using the freshest and highest-quality coffee beans sourced from the high grounds of Ethiopia and Sumatra.
This bag of coffee from Blue Bottle comes in their trademark resealable packaging, so you can maintain the freshness of the coffee beans for a longer period of time, even without moving them to another container.
The roast is just past medium, with the beans showing the slightest bit of glossiness.
I love getting whole beans, because they seem to keep their flavor better than pre-ground, and you can grind on-demand to suit your tastes — with the proper grind, this blend is good for all brew methods — pour over, French press, coffee maker, AeroPress, Chemex, espresso, cold brew, etc. I use an adjustable electric burr grinder, and then I make my coffee Americano style with an Aeropress.
This blend brews up very dark, with a bit of a mahogany tone. It puts out a nice warm, almost peaty aroma.
Bella Donovan tastes really great, as it features a pleasant balance of rich and bright flavors. There is no bitterness or even burnt taste, just a well-balanced cup of coffee with caramel-like sweetness.
Blue Bottle Coffee never ceases to amaze us with its high-quality coffee blends! I think it’s wonderful that they offer so many choices not only in coffee types but in options for how often you would like to receive the coffee. I really love this month’s featured whole bean coffee, as it has a very pleasant and comforting taste, making it an ideal all-around coffee. If you are a coffee lover like me who wants to try a variety of coffee from around the world, this is the coffee subscription is where it’s at!
