Coffee Morning ....

Those lovely people over at Fuel My Blog sent me another product to test a couple of weeks ago.
I realise that market research is vital to any business on the planet & I love testing products ... so all in all .. Result!!

I opened the envelope and I was met with the most fantastic aroma.... fresh coffee ... mmmmm

Yes I was asked to product test coffee, how perfect ... But I can assure you this is no ordinary coffee!!
No indeed .... it is from The Coffe Bean Shop. co.uk.

The one I was sent is 'Daterra course ground~ Special Reserve'. Despite my wide taste in coffee I can actually say I had never heard of this variety.
The information sheets that accompanied the product told me this :-

'This coffee has a delicate bold flowery aroma (yes I could tell this through the packaging ... mmm), which carries on through to an unforgettable aftertaste. Its bold , yet round and smooth - this coffee has an exciting chocolaty ( did some one mention chocolate??) finishing flavour. Velvety body and sweet acidity. This coffee has the bitter - sweetness of a dry red wine and the aftertaste of a chocolate liquer.'

Also it 'is a very limited edition coffee'.......

OH WOW!!

Generally at the weekend I put on the coffee machine and fish from it thoughout the day ... but since I got this wonderful free sample I have been maxed out each weekend ... so today was the first opportunity to try it .... SO....

Coffee?... check!

Favourite coffee cup?... check!

Coffe machine?... check!



Fill & wait!!!

Sounds yummy - I shall keep my eyes peeled for it. I willing to help you with the white wine tasting if you ever get that one.....

Alas... being in Canada, I don't even get chosen when there's something eligible for the Americans. Boo hoo. I think DP should stop whining and send me some shoes to make ME feel better.

Coffee though sis? I'm jealous. Your write-up was descriptive enough to make me think about looking for a flat over there.

Annie Mouse said...

i have never received any thing from them ever and yet my profile thingy says i would be willing to.

Daddy Papersurfer said...

Annie Mouse - send them an email complaining ...... I do that all the time - tee hee. Address it to Sir Kevin Almighty .......

70steen said...

70steen said...

Dear Frac I would give up on the shoe front but maybe you could use the e mail I sent you ;-)

70steen said...

Annie ~ your time will come but hun you drink your tea and coffee stone cold ... mmm ?? wondering what it would taste like cold

70steen said...

mmm DP ... slap on the wrists .. stop encouraging Annie.. you could lead her into trouble lol :)

fracas said...

I got the email... it's priceless! I laughed out loud! It's such a good likeness too.

I think we should save it for the "A day in the life" fanzine issue... don't you?

John C said...

Fracas is going to hold that picture hostage now, I tell ya!

She whines about me whining about nothing whineable...which I'm not.

Really.

Annie Mouse said...
