Well, that didn’t last long

My fancy new coffee subscription service, kaput. I only had two deliveries.

I joined them after I saw an ad on Twitter. I wonder if they had one last marketing blowout trying to revive their fortunes.

Oh, well. I have now more or less figured out what I do and don’t like, so coffee surprise! isn’t such an important service.

I mean, I haven’t worked out what all that language about tropical fruit and notes of tobacco and chocolate means in real terms, but I know I cannot tell the difference between one dark roast and another. And I don’t like ’em.

I drink Walmart Great Value Instant Coffee so I’m hardly an expert, lol.

I’m in the same league as you, @QuasiModo. We drink Costco House Blend and are satisfied with it.

And I’m also in the same league as you, Mme. Ermine. If the roast is darker than Medium, it’s just another burnt bean to me. Yecch.

An Italian Dark Roast is much better than a French Dark Roast…

I’d brewed some rancid, harsh, gag-worthy dark roast beans but I have also brewed, more often than not, a delightful rich-tasting brew using Italian Dark Roast which simply says “perfect coffee” when I sip it.

Even a cheap Italian Roast, like Eight O’Clock, brews nicely.

And then there’s coffee flavored ice cream.

@durnedyankee: BlueBell coffee ice cream is the best. I would eat a little dish every day if I could.

If I ever get rich, I’m buying a Kona coffee plantation.
