Blanchard's Coffee -- Review and Giveaway, ends 12/26/13




It's no secret. I am addicted to coffee.

  GOOD COFFEE!!!

I first discovered Blanchard's Coffee in late 2011. It was probably my most eye-opening moment. Who knew that coffee could really taste like that?
I have been enjoying Blanchard's coffee since that time. My favourite is and most likely always will be, the Ethiopian Harrar.



But this time... I tried something new! Lizz, my youngest daughter, has developed a lust, er, love for Sumatra. The kind folks at Blanchard's sent me a bag of ground Lintong Estate Sumatra to try.
I am loving it! It has slightly sweet, fruity tone. Even though it is a light roast, it's has a deep, intense flavour. It's very rich. I like to add sweet cream to it. It's like eating chocolate-covered raisins. :)

Lintong Estate Sumatra is sourced farm-direct via Sriwijaya Coffee for sustainability from soil to cup.
