Blanchard's: The best coffee in the world! Ends 10/10/12



I drink a lot of coffee.  By a lot, I mean that a pound bag lasts... I don't know... a week.  Or less.  Fully leaded or Decaf, it makes no difference to me.  All I want, all I demand is taste and quality.  That's where Blanchard's Coffee comes in to play.

I first heard of Blanchard's Coffee in fall of 2011.  Every review, every customer comment was glowing.  You KNOW I had to try it.

This is where words fail me -- this was the best coffee I have ever tasted.  I don't say that for the sake of this review.  I say it because, for me, it is absolutely true.

If you are a coffee fiend addict aficionado, you will understand!

Blanchard's Coffee company is an independent, family-owned coffee roastery in Richmond, VA. They roast almost daily and have been since 2004.

The coffee that is delivered to the customer is fresh roasted and packaged and the flavour shines through in every cup.  There is NO bitterness.  I have tried their darkest roast, Dark as Dark, and found it smooth, bold, and extremely deeply noted.  But not bitter.  Every coffee drinker knows that bitterness ruins a great cup of coffee.

You will not be disappointed .  Trust me.

As many of you know, I am addicted Blanchard's Ethiopian Harrar: This is a medium roast, 100% Arabica Bean coffee. Everything you love about trail mix, now in liquid form! A smooth, balanced coffee with notes of dried cherries, milk chocolate, ripe blueberries, and just a touch of salt. A discerning palate might also pick up some red hot cinnamon hidden away
.

Oh, where to start? The first thing I picked out was the Blueberry and Chocolate notes... then, at the end, the finish of cinnamon.

Hi, I'm Terri.  Will blog for coffee.

Yes, I do drink and enjoy other coffees.  I will not deny it.  Occasionally, I DO run out of my Blanchard's or I'm at a place where I have to drink something else.  But I always come back to my one true love.

Give Blanchard's a try -- and you will not be disappointed.  And you will never be truly satisfied with anything else ever again.  Ask me how I know.

I'd love to try the Ethipian Harrar... sounds really unique and delicious. Guatemala Santa Rosa sounds equally delicious. I prefer to to have my coffee ground for me... though it does taste better/fresher when you grind your own. In the mornings though, I can't bring myself to do it (and my housemates are light sleepers...).

I'd love to try the Breakfast Blend ... sounds yummy! I prefer ground coffee ... actually I prefer whole bean because it tastes so good but I've found that getting ground just doesn't happen so ... I'd prefer ground. Thanks for this giveaway!

Space Monkey said...

breakfast blend ground for me! You know, I tried whole bean but it was far far too much work to grind those beans each time we made coffee! I have often thought about the OLD fashioned hang on the wall grinder, with a crank, would be a better item for that than the goofy little electric one we tried.

WOW...I am a coffee ADDICT and haven't heard of this coffee before! I prefer to order online for coffee with companies who roast before they send out so less issues with heartburn and fresher! I like many of the coffees but Swan Song sounds unique!
