Day 13 and I am trying a wonderful cup of Teasia single origin coffee from Central America: Guatemala Antiqua. One thing I love about all these single origin coffee beans is that drinking a cup of coffee takes me a trip around the world. I am able to enjoy different types of coffee, sitting right at home.
Upon first sip, I noticed was how soft the scent of the coffee was just that itself lets me know that this isn’t as strong of a coffee compared to all the others I’ve tried. I’m able to smell a scent of lemon and orange which really stand out for me whenever I take a whiff. This coffee does have a subtle bitterness to it, but it’s barely noticeable. So far just the flavor of this coffee has made this my favorite tasting coffee so far and I could see myself drinking this one on a regular basis.
PRO-TIP- Add some sugar for a sweeter taste. One of my latest favorite creamers is a caramel macchiato flavor. Who doesn’t love that?
Day 12 calls for me to take a trip to Costa Rica. With this single origin whole roasted coffee beans, I’m able to smell a hint of tangerine along with the smoky roast of the coffee beans. The first sip hit me with a high acidic flavor, but what surprised me was how smooth it was after I drank it.
This is a great weekend or on the go coffee. Each smell provides you with a fresh scent of tangerine and cantaloupe each time you enjoy the aroma from your cup. If you aren’t huge coffee drinker like myself and are looking for a smooth great tasting coffee., this one is for you.
A wonderful latte, gets better and better with each sip. The well-balanced and full bodied flavor is nicely accentuated with notes of black tea, sweet apricot along with a tang of orange juice. This coffee Burundi was made with soy milk and it really complements the coffee beans. A perfect latte to drink during the cold winter and huddle around a campfire or cozy up under a warm blanket. This latte goes down really smooth and has a wonderful after taste full of honey and soy milk.
Our Burundi coffee plant is grown in volcanic rich soil in the region of Mbirizi at an altitude of 1700-1800 meters. If you love East and Central African coffees such as Rwanda, Tanzania and Kivu, this roast is for you!
PRO TIP- Don’t feel like a warm drink? Make it an iced latte by adding some ice cubes and more soy milk for that creamy texture.
Today’s coffee is prepared the old fashioned way in the coffee maker. The Brazil Fazenda is smooth with light acidity and has a mild and buttery taste with hints of hazelnut and cocoa.
Highlights: A strong coffee with a smooth taste to it that I really enjoyed. It’s a great coffee for everyday and I would recommend it for someone who doesn’t drink coffee daily too. The cocoa flavor is very enjoyable with every sip you take. The best food to pair with would be a breakfast sandwich on a croissant.
PRO TIP- If you feel the cocoa taste is too strong, add some sugar to balance it out with some sweetness.
Next week, Jose is trying our Burundi which is full-bodied with notes of black tea, sweet apricot, juicy cherry and a tang of orange juice.

Day 1 – Bali Blue Moon (Cold Brew)
Highlights: This coffee is for anyone who wants a wake-up call each morning. The strong taste really packs a punch at first, but after taking a few more sips, my body is more awake and it becomes a really smooth drink. This coffee would go great with some sweet bread.
PRO TIP: Add a bit of milk if it’s too strong of a taste for you, paired with some sugar for a delicious drink.
Cold Brew Quick Tip Preparation:
What is the best way to make cold brew coffee at home?
- Grind our Teasia Single Origin Coffee Beans into a coarse grind.
- Combine the ground coffee and water in the jar.
- Mix well together.
- Steep the coffee overnight in the fridge. (This works best so you have something ready in the AM when you really need it.)
- Strain the coffee liquid. The best way for straining is to use cheese cloth
- Pour extra cold brew to a new jar for storage OR share with coworkers.
- Enjoy right away OR add ice for some iced coffee.

Day 10: Black Tea
Flavor Highlights: I enjoy the nutty aftertaste with this black tea. This is a drink I would also have instead of a coffee because of the caffeine boost it gives me without getting shaky.
A whole wheat toast with strawberry jam is what I would pair this tea with. I normally will not go for this tea because of its’ bitterness, but to my surprise, this tea is incredibly smooth. The aroma is therapeutic and also delicious.

Day 5: Roasted Oolong Tea
Flavor Highlights: This drink was not my ‘cup of tea’. The darker, richer earthy taste of tea was a bit too much for me. This tea is almost along the lines of coffee but with that subtle tea flavor. I feel I enjoyed the Teasia Oolong Tea as it is so adding a roasting to it did not enhance it for me.
Nonetheless, this is a tea I would prefer drinking on a hot day served cold with ice and milk and sugar paired with something sweet like a scone or cupcakes!
