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.

Don’t forget, Teasia just came out with some new coffee blends in convenient k-cups.

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

It’s the middle of summer and I don’t want to waste a lot of time when it comes to preparing breakfast because I want to enjoy summer days. This morning I tried our new Teasia coffee Breakfast Blend.

Yogurt with Coffee

A wonderful strong aroma steams out from my mug as I prepare to take my first sip. I’ve added 3 creamers (vanilla flavored) along with some sugar to my coffee since I need some sugar and vanilla to wake me up! 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

 

Jose’s Teasia Coffee-A-Day Tasting- Day 23 with Yemen Mocca (Regular Brew)

Weekend Yemen Mocca Coffee

It’s time for some Teasia Yemen Mocca single origin whole roasted coffee beans. If you’re looking for a well-balanced coffee, this one is it! My first sip was very pleasant with strong yet subtle flavors, which I highly enjoy. For the most part Yemen Coffee has a super smooth flavor and never once received any bitter taste. (Keep in mind, I am testing all of the coffee black so I can get a sense of all the flavors.)  This highly complex coffee can be easily compared to a rich port and I am really liking the velvety and chocolaty tones. Because of the chocolate tones, I would definitely add some hazelnut creamer to add another level of flavor and sweetness of course.

Celebrate! Teasia’s Yemen Mocca single origin whole roasted coffee beans is my last flavor of this taste test. Teasia has so many varieties of beans that it was such a great experience to be able to try every single one of them. I definitely have some of my top favorites and several least favorite ones. Stay tuned in the next few weeks to check out my summary of top roasts.

Jose’s Teasia Coffee-A-Day Tasting- Day 22 with Uganda Bugisu (Regular Brew)

Adding Creamer to Uganda Coffee

Wow, these coffee beans have FLAVOR. Today, I’m trying Teasia’s Uganda Bugisu single origin whole roasted coffee beans. As you already know, my favorite way to enjoy coffee is the latte version and it is highly recommended if you love creamy drinks, however, I did try this coffee black so that I can give you my two cents on the flavor profiles.

Besides noting that the first whiff had a punch of flavor, it is the strongest coffee aroma I have had so far. The flavor that  stood out to me was a mix of cocoa and cherry.  For sure this coffee needs some creamer to cut down on the high acidity. If you love black coffee that’s strong, this one is for you, but since I am into lighter roasts that aren’t acidic, I wouldn’t be able to drink this without having to add sugar and creamer to combat the bitter tasting coffee.
