Coffee with Jose: Kenya AA

Close up Kenya AA Brew

I started my Wednesday morning with cup of Kenya AA (K-Cup) with nothing else added. A wonderful citrus aroma fills the whole office floor as I prepare to drink my cup of coffee. My first sip consisted of an acidic and bitter flavor, then after proceeded to take smaller sips of coffee to be able to finish my cup. The more I sipped my cup eventually I hit the point of where I started to enjoy the taste, but it is something not everyone will enjoy or push themselves to drink. For anyone who enjoys a strong coffee flavor I would highly recommend Kenya AA. I will be having Kenya AA from now on with creamer and sugar added.

Kenya AA is a rich and vibrant bodied coffee and has a deep wine-like acidity along with a pleasant citrus aroma. If you’re into wine, this may be the coffee for you. Did you know that Kenya AA is considered to be one of the world’s best coffee beans- the area has a reputation for absolute excellence, especially because it lies near the region where coffee beans first originated. Grown on volcanic soils and high altitudes, beans grow slower allowing more time for flavor development and maturity.

Summary

Throughout the few months of doing these coffee reviews I’ve learned to appreciate the many different flavors each coffee bean and K-cup has to offer. I’ve never considered myself a huge coffee guy nor do I claim to be one but, I’ve learned that each coffee brings its own personality, culture and roast to each cup. I’ve enjoyed the wonderful taste of Donut Shop Blend which comes with a smooth smoky flavor that I really enjoyed and would look forward to drinking each morning. One of the K-cup coffees that I didn’t really enjoy just because the flavor was to strong for me and it was a fight for me to actually drink and enjoy the herb like flavor Ethiopia Yirgacheffe had to offer. I would strongly recommend anyone to Ethiopia Yirgacheffe K-cup if you’re someone who like a strong and earthy flavor in your coffee as it is one of the more complex coffee flavors I’ve had so far.

Coffee with Jose: House Blend

Coffee and a Pie

I started my work day with a fresh cup of Teasia House Blend in K-Cup form and so far, the aroma of the coffee is a perfect blend mixture of flavors. My first sip consisted of a smooth and smoky coffee flavor which I found to be really pleasant. Anyone looking for coffee with a great mixture of flavors should really consider drinking or at least trying Teasia House Blend. This is definitely a daily coffee flavor that I can start everyday with. I ended pairing my cup of coffee with a a fruit tart with mostly blueberries for those antioxidants which were the perfect pair!  If you’re looking to try a new coffee flavor go ahead and give this one a try.

Coffee with Jose: Ethiopia Yirgacheffe

Ethiopia at work

Mid-way through work I needed a mid-week push. Today’s coffee of choice was Ethiopia Yirgacheffe a coffee with exotic flavors along with some spices and herbs. One of the scents that I’m gathering from the coffee are herbs along with a nice smell of the coffee bean itself which are two of the main scents that stand out to me currently. My first sip was like drinking a cup of water soiled in herbs which provided me with an acidic and bitter taste. I would like to note that the coffee itself isn’t strong or super acidic but it is a flavor that one would have to grow into enjoying. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone who doesn’t drink a lot of coffee but instead to someone who enjoys a unique and complex cup of coffee. If I were to drink this coffee flavor again, I would add some creamer and sugar to sweeten up the taste to my liking.

Single Origin coffee from Ethiopia Yiracheffe is known as some of the highest quality Arabica coffee beans in the world and is known for its high quality and unique fragrance and distinctive flavor. For all those coffee connoisseurs out there, this is the one to try. We have whole roasted coffee beans and convenient k-cups to drink at the office.

Coffee with Jose: Brazil Fazenda

Brazil paired with Creamer

This morning, I made myself a cup of Teasia Coffee Brazil Fazenda in a K-Cup.  I did add some creamer and sugar to my coffee so keep that in mind. The aroma was pleasant and not only did I enjoy the wonderful taste of the coffee with the creamer. During each sip I’m left with a nice smoky aftertaste which is enjoyable and leaves you feeling satisfied a energetic. I enjoyed my coffee and will be looking forward to enjoying my next coffee. If you’re someone who is looking to try a new flavor of coffee, I would highly recommend making Brazil Fazenda your next choice.

For those of you who are not familiar with this single origin flavor, it is smooth and light with hints of hazelnut and cocoa that balance out sweet berry tones. Did you know that Brazil is one of the highest coffee producing countries in the world? Because Brazil is hot and humid, it’s one of the perfect places to grow coffee. At Fazenda de Lagoa, several generations have been dedicated to their plantations and have made coffee cultivation not just their business, but their lifestyle.

Coffee with Jose: Teasia Sumatra Mandheling

A Slice of Bread

I started my morning with a cup of Sumatra Mandheling coffee, I had it straight black. The aroma coming from my cup had a really earthy tone. I took my first sip and was instantly hit with a smoky and strong (for me) taste which wasn’t enjoyable for me. I would like to point out that there was no acidic taste whatsoever within the coffee just a really strong taste. A lot of my fellow coworkers love that strong jolt from a cup of joe so I would definitely recommend it if you’re like my coworkers. Since this coffee isn’t acidic, adding some creamer and sugar to it would be most enjoyable with a slice of banana bread.

If you’re not familiar with this type of single origin coffee, here’s a brief description about it: Grown on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, Mandheling is known for its full body and vibrancy. The flavor develops well because of the rich volcanic soil and tropical climate.  This coffee is full and complete with an Earthy aroma and tones of sweet chocolate.

Coffee with Jose: Teasia French Roast

French Roast Breakfast Morning

After a long day at work, nothing is better than drinking a cup of joe. When I first tried this French Roast by putting the k-cup in my Keurig, I was able to smell the subtle aroma of fresh coffee. Wow, taking my first sip I was hit with a strong acidic and bitter taste, but as you know I don’t like bitter coffee, but that was only the initial sip. When I started sipping more of my drink, I realized the flavors started to come out and it became very smooth and pleasant. This is the most luxurious blend and is extra bold and smooth coffee I’ve had thus far.

If  I were to compare this to the previous coffee (Breakfast Blend) I had I would say this one is our darker and bolder tasting coffees, so keep that in mind when looking for your next coffee if you want something lighter, I’d recommend the Breakfast Blend coffee..

Pro-Tip: Add your favorite creamer such as vanilla or hazelnut.  Also great to enjoy with a sandwich or breakfast sandwich!

Coffee with Jose: Teasia Donut Shop Blend

Donuts, Donuts, Donuts!  Who is ready to try some of Teasia’s Donut Shop Blend? Here’s a little background on our 100% Arabica coffee k-cup. This classy, velvety blend makes the perfect up for all hours of the day. The flavor is bold and smooth with a twist.

When I prepared the Donut Shop k-cup, the aroma from my mug was really pleasant. To get the true flavors, I had my coffee  black and enjoyed the smooth and smoky tast. I’ve come to learn to enjoy black coffee at this point and Donut Shop blend is so far a really good tasting coffee for anyone who enjoys a great tasting cup of joe daily.  Since it was breakfast, I paired this with a sweet bread to balance each other nicely.

If you’re not the type of person who likes their coffee black, you can easily add some sugar and creamer to enhance the flavors.Donut Shop Blend_Black Coffee

My first sip consisted of a wonderful tasting coffee with a smooth smoky taste with each sip. This is a wonderful tasting coffee and something I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a flavorful cup of joe. This coffee is best enjoyed at breakfast time with some yogurt and fresh berries!

Jose’s Teasia Coffee Tasting Summary

Favorite Coffees

Thank you for coming on this wonderful journey with me and seeing my take on all the different single origin coffee roasts provided courtesy of Teasia. There have been many coffee flavors I enjoyed and many that weren’t my preference. Throughout this whole experience there’s one thing that I didn’t change my mind on, which is enjoying a really strong and acidic coffee!

My top three favorite single origin coffee beans are: Burundi, Brazil Fazenda, and Ethiopia Sidamo. These three were perfect for me as they weren’t very acidic and contained a smooth flavor in every sip. The flavor profiles were perfect for anyone who isn’t into acidic or strong coffees. These beans tasted wonderful in latte form, which is one of my favorite types of drinks.

Strong Coffees

The main coffee beans that I didn’t enjoy  as much were Tanzania Peaberry, Rwanda and Nicaragua Segovia. These three single origin coffee beans were way too strong for me in flavor along with having a high acidic taste which made it not enjoyable for me. If you’re someone who really enjoys strong coffees like my coworkers or are looking for a good way up call early in the morning, I would highly consider picking one of these up.

Teasia has just come out with some coffee in k-cups with 4 new coffee blends that I can’t wait to try:

  1. Breakfast Blend – Bright and crisp
  2. Donut Shop Blend – Classic velvety donut shop blend
  3. Teasia House Blend – Our hand-picked blend for our customers!
  4. French Roast Blend – Dark and luxurious
