Presentation is everything. Everything and everyone has an image to uphold. A reputation to upkeep. Back in my Greaser years I had the cigarette box rolled up in my tight white undershirt sleeve. Back in my Disco years I had the flared out tight in the junk pants. Back in my “Rebel against the town who has banned dancing” years I had the tight white tee shirt and tight in the junk jeans to wear. It’s amazing how things come back around. So to the coffee. This Medium Roast from Trader Joe’s is the opposite of a date arranged by the internet. The avatar sets high expectations and, for the most part, the actual coffee delivers. This coffee sits pretty on the shelf inside a collectible (my word, not TJs) burlap bag. It’s whole bean coffee so make sure you grind it before you leave (if that’s your bag baby). It’s a smooth rich cup of coffee that has the common notes of a Central American coffee. Nutty with a nice fruit sweetness to it.
And now for the ladies, some sweet pics:
