Simple Coffee – Simple Breakfast

Daughter, Jessica, is always thinking of nice things to give others.  She brought home from Vietnam Simple Coffee Co, a couple sacks of delicious coffees grown and roasted in Son La, Vietnam.  She has since recently returned to Vietnam (quite the adventure in that – taking 52 hours and now in isolation!), so i’m enjoying the Forest flavor all by myself.  We shared Sunrise earlier in her visit.  Okay, now i’m going to cry because i miss her still. 😦  She’s been doing this international schools teaching since straight out of uni – you’d think i’d get used to her being gone.

Roasted beans i ground this morning and pressed for a fresh cup.  Enjoyed one of my home made Applesauce Chia Granola Bars.

Tanzanian Peaberry

Excellent roast.  My first cup was a bit of a surprise at how dark and strong Tanzanian Peaberry was.  After that, i adjusted the amount of beans i use for just the right enjoyment.  Although the description uses aromatic notes such as Sweet Brown Sugar, Black Tea, Anise, my first sniff reminded me of campfire cooking.  Salter Bros Coffee Roasters roast the beans you order AFTER you order.  Super fresh.

Looking forward to trying some of the other roastings by Salterbroscoffee.  A bag of Honduran medium-dark roast is waiting patiently in the cupboard.
