I’m pretty sure my husband, Joe is addicted to coffee. But not just any coffee will do, he has a refined coffee palate and will only drink freshly roasted organic coffee. Honestly, before I met him I didn’t even know I to make a pot of coffee and now I’m married to a former barista who is obsessed with coffee. So when it comes to reviewing coffee I don’t even try to give my opinion because I am completely ignorant when it comes to all things coffee.
Here are Joe’s expert thoughts:
Joe Van Gogh’s Organic Papua New Guinea Purosa is the best smelling package we’ve received all year. The beans were roasted the day before we got them, so they were really fresh. I wanted to make something special with this coffee, so I had it ground coarse and cold-brewed it overnight with a little bit of chicory, resulting in a smooth New Orleans style iced coffee. It was quite delicious, and as it turned out, very popular with the guys at work. If I had it to do over again, I might not share next time around.
I think he liked it!
