For any of you that did not know, our own Black Dog owns a coffee roasting business.
Black Dog is too much of a gentleman to ape his coffee here, but I am not.
I recently got three packages of his coffee: Dog Watch Dark Blend, Ethiopian and a Peru organic coffee. So far we have tried the Dog Watch and the Ethiopian and both are freakin' outstanding! The Dog Watch is my favorite so far. It is dark and greasy but not bitter at all. Plus, drinking a cup is like mainlining caffeine! In a word, it is awesome.
This morning we fired up the Ethiopian. It is a much lighter roast. Normally, I am not a big fan of light roasts. But this stuff is an exception. It is very sweet even without cream and sugar. I would never ruin a cup of coffee with cream and sugar, but for you guys that would try the Ethiopian black. I think you will be pleased. It tastes like the morning coffee that you get at high end restaurants and inns in the midwest.
I am greatly looking forward to trying the Peru when I get home from Chi-town later this week.
With Christmas coming up, you should consider picking up a couple bags to serve at your Christmas celebration or to give as gifts. If your friends and family like coffee, they will love this stuff (unless they are not very bright, in which case you should consider a better circle of friends).
