Ask anyone, and you will find that they never forget their first. A memory from long ago that even today is never far from my mind. Her name was Belle Espresso, a friend brought her to my house one evening, knowing that we should meet. He was right. She had a medium body and looked just my type. With a come hither look, I picked her up and carried her to my coffee machine. I surrendered and closed my eyes. I could not resist her aroma… Brandy, Chocolate and Caramel and how lovely she looked glistening with oil. I had to have her. Steam excitedly shot from my machine wand as I pulled myself a shot! As I brought Belle to my lips, I wondered how many others knew her and if they felt the same about her, as I did... It was at that moment I knew that coffee was not just coffee, it was so much more and I would never forget her. That beautiful Belle is Klatch’s Belle Espresso and her memory will never fade away.

Attention Chocoholics: looking for an espresso that is super duper chocolatey? Then Klatch House Espresso is for you! I have been pulling shots all morning on my new La Marzocco GS3 and am loving it! Not to be confused with their FTO House Espresso…This espresso is ultra rich and has a heavy, creamy body. Add steamed milk to the Klatch House Espresso and it tastes like a Mocha without adding any chocolate and all those calories. It is really quite amazing. On my 3rd cappuccino this morning I decided to experiment. While I never add sugar to my coffee, because of the over the top chocolate body of the espresso, I wanted to see what would happen if I added a touch of sugar and a spray of whipped cream on top. Well, as suspected, I felt like I was drinking a real hot cocoa! I swear I was in back Paris having an Angelina Hot Chocolate on Rue de Rivoli. Well, not exactly. It isn't as thick, but almost. Because of its richness in milk drinks, it may be a bit heavy for those of you that slam 6 double Cappuccinos or Lattes before noon, but for most people it will hit the spot as a great mainstay to have on hand when you want something sweet and naughty. For many people that is everyday and all day long!

This dark roasted velvety masterpiece from Massachusetts roaster John Mahoney’s Atomic Café is an exotic mix of beans sourced from Papua New Guinea (PA-poo-Y nyoo GIN-ee) and Costa Rica. The mix is quite wonderful because it produces such a rich yet clean and refreshingly smooth cup. The smokiness never overpowers. Dark roast lovers rejoice! Brewed hot or cold, it can be sipped all day long. It’s an east coast/ west coast brokerage house customer favorite and one of mine too.

Bird Rock's signature,"Bird Rock Blend" has what it takes to be a great and classic cup that I will now lean on as a go-to favorite. I love how the chocolate tones transform into a thick and gooey, candy-fudge-like finish. Yum! The Sumatra and Ecuadorian beans are wonderfully combined and orchestrated by roast maestro Charles Patton, the 2012 Micro-Roaster of the year. His commitment to excellence is unwavering. He personally travels to origin, conducting a world-wide search to select the specific beans that will produce the flavor profile he plans to create, then after returning home, Charles "dials it in" through various test roasts and numerous cuppings until he achieves that perfect balance and harmonious tonality he sought and now has brought to the cup. This robust, medium-dark roast is a stellar offering! If you have not had Bird Rock yet, order this and taste why the crew from La Jolla, California are 2012's top award winners.

One taste of this spectacular coffee, The Red Den Blend, and I knew that Dallis Bros. was destined to be on GoCoffeeGo. Dallis Bros. has created a bold and creamy dark roast with the perfect mix of spice and chocolate. Yes, The Red Den is a real classic and a new GoCoffeeGo staff favorite. If you think this is a favorite only with the dark roast lovers, think again! The light roast lovers are praising it as warm and comforting and perfect for those that like some milk in their coffee. The boldness is a perfect pairing for rich deserts, like those chocolate brownies they sell down the street. Make this new customer favorite a favorite of yours. Order today!

I am not quite sure why my choices in coffees seem to shift with the change of the seasons. Every year around this time, when the holidays start rolling in and the sky changes colors and darkens, I crave warmth. I am drawn to naughty, sweet childlike flavors in my coffee. I think we all find rich and heavy bodied coffees comforting. I can have a few luscious cups and feel happy but often, as the day goes on, I tend to switch it up. Dallis Bros Unisphere Blend has always been a yummy cup that is light enough to drink all day and still give you the happy sweet cup that you crave. While listed as a light roast, I find it more of a medium-light. The milk chocolate, caramel, plum, nougat and malt flavors could make this one of your year round favorites. It certainly is one of mine!

Looking for adventure? No need to jump a plane. Barefoot has just the cure for the summer blues with their Adventurous Drip Sampler Pack. This sampler contains coffees that are brighter and fruitier. Perfect for those of you that sleepwalk comatose to your coffee machine in the morning drinking the same old reliable coffee you order every time or that wallow in indecision. Snore... Wake up! Mix it up a bit! This set could be a real eye-opener. Like a DJ choosing a playlist, Barefoot keeps things exciting with smaller sampler 8 ounce bags from a lineup of their current more complex and fruity seasonal drip coffees. It is a nice opportunity to try a few Barefoot offerings and see what you think. At the very least, it will leave you feeling well traveled without the jet lag. For those that want to play it a bit more safe there is also a Barefoot Traditional 3 bag sampler which tend to have more chocolate notes, heavier mouth feels and are less complex. These are really great as well. Try this or don't! Whatever you do, just try something different today!

Morissa, Morrissa, Morrisa…What can I say? Every call I make to the Barefoot roastery is answered by you. Last week. I called inquiring about Barefoot's latest espresso from Papua New Guinea and you whispered in my ear…Fig, Sweet Jam, Cola berry and leather. Leather?! I gasped and my heart raced. I pleaded for her to stop end my agony. She told me to check the mailbox. I paced in front of the office. At 2 pm the mail came. In it was a bag of Barefoot's Arokara Espresso. I ran to my La Marzocco, opened the bag. The smell was heavenly. With a pull of a shot I was launched to the moon. I want you to all know this this is one amazing expresso. I wished for the larger size bag. That 2.5 pounder. Perhaps I will ask Santa for that. Oh dear. Must I sit on his lap?... The espresso was sweet and complex, like Morissa and had that chocolatey earthy body that warms and comforts so nicely in these colder winter months. It punches through the milk well and the fruit makes it a bright and jammy cup. The leather snaps it into shape. Try this espresso. This could be your new favorite.

Outstanding! I consider myself quite the Aficionado, Klatch Coffee has created an out of this world -- out of body experience in a cup. A recollection: As I peddled my way through Northern Italy on my bicycle, back in my fool-hardy days, I came across an espresso bar and a lovely barista, as sweet and delicate as this, she had balance too, just as this, and has a soft aftertaste -- oh this one is just like Sofia-- ahh... My friends a must have! Not only has Mike produced amazing progeny, including his daughter Heather who is a world Barista Champion, he also produces amazing roasted coffee!
