I love everything about coffee. I love brewing it. I love the taste. I love the infusion of energy. And I love the health benefits. Coffee beans come from all over the world, and people drink coffee all over the world. When I have my morning cup of joe I feel like, in a small way, I am participating in being a world citizen.
I've tried lots of coffee in search of one that is both economical and good. I've bought beans from the grocery store, coffee shops, local roasters, the internet... you name it. A couple months ago I stumbled onto the best stuff that has ever come out of my trusty, little Mr Coffee maker. I look forward to it every morning. The first sip makes the taste buds on the back of my tongue do summersaults. Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you... Trader Joe's Organic Breakfast Blend.
Look, I know coffee is extremely subjective. My best bud and I debated this recently while hopping between coffee joints in and around Union Square, New York. By the way, Everyman Espresso and Irving Farm Coffee Roasters are def worth a visit if you're ever in the area. But if you feel like you haven't yet found the one... I don't mind sharing.
