There is something beautifully intoxicating about the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. The scent of regular coffee wafts through the air gently beckoning your attention and then, once you have succumbed to the temptation, it relaxes your cares away with it’s soothing heat and smooth flavor. But take that experience (well known to every coffee nut) and multiply by a factor of at least ten when you are considering gourmet coffees. That’s because gourmet coffee intensifies all the good points of regular store brand and cancels out the bad.
At the Coffee Nut Hut, if we had not all been coffee nuts to begin with, our regular staff tasting sessions would have made us so. At the start of every month, we compare the flavor and aroma of various specialty, organic and gourmet coffees and choose a favorite and then that is what we drink for the rest of the month.
From bold to smooth, light roast to dark, gourmet coffees are as varied in flavor and intensity as fine French wine. At least half the fun of enjoying gourmet coffee is finding new flavors and blends to enjoy.
