This is a fun left quote. 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. This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. Espresso Novo is a great and momentous discovery! With smooth notes of caramel, banana, and a nutty finish, this is one of the most complex and remarkable espressos ever! Herb Brodsky and his sons Jake and Joseph are a remarkable family. To Herb every cup is like a song… a Bob Dylan song. He’s part hitchhiking poet, part bohemian writer. Jake, a scientist of coffee operations, obsesses on coffee perfection, getting primo beans from his brother Joseph, their world-traveling sourcer. They treat coffee like fine wine, so beautifully presented, even their packaging looks like a fancy gift. There is good crema and Karma in every sip of this amazing and tantalizing Espresso. This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. 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 is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. I recently received a saucy love letter from Genevieve, a French woman who invited me to New Orleans for an amazing cup of coffee; a coffee that she promised I would never forget. Always up for a little Cajun spice in my life, I jumped a flight to the Big Easy. The fact that Genevieve lived off the beaten path and in the middle of a swamp did not dissuade me. I was on a quest to return with this treasure of coffee. I boarded a boat early evening and reclined as my Row Master, Fidel, paddled me through the Bayou. The humid mist created an air of mystery, which heightened my sense of anticipation. I closed my eyes and envisioned this French Beauty and her promise to serve up a deep, dark, oily, smoky and chocolaty cup of love. Fidel whispered cautiously, “I see it, Professor, it’s just up ahead." Fireflies illuminated her home amongst the wild vines and thick foliage. We approached her somewhat rickety boat landing. As I stepped from the boat onto the dock that creaked and swayed, the fireflies led the way to Genevieve’s doorway and to this French Beauty, who greeted me with a French press in hand. “Bonjour, Professor Peaberry, Café?” She purred as she poured a cup. I sipped this brew, one that I had traveled thousands of miles to try -- “Oui, oui. Très bon. Magnifique!” I declared. Yes, indeed - Earth tone and tropical wood filled my senses. The coffee was truly French, smoky, yet fruity and exotic with Latin American, Indonesian and African beans all in the mix! Genevieve stared deep into my eyes and continued to pour me more. I felt a little uneasy in the Big Easy… Perhaps I was hypnotized? Suddenly tribal drums filled my ears. Entranced, I began to dance for her. I swayed my hips and then hopped on one foot! It was a bit embarrassing, I must say. Indeed I was her puppet! My head was spinning. I smelled smoke. I looked to my French lovely and fire filled her eyes! I mean fire! Suddenly an alligator lurched out of the shadows and appeared by her side. Snap! SNAP! Oh, yes, something was wrong! As I fled for the door, I snatched the bag of coffee beans from which she had brewed this amazing cup of coffee. Her alligator chased me and continually snapped at my heels as I raced to the boat. Fidel was waiting. Fully caffeinated, I pushed him aside and took the oars. I rowed away with speed and haste, leaving the enraged French Voodoo Princess, Genevieve, and her alligator far behind. What a close call. I was thankful to get out alive and with my bachelorhood intact! All parts accounted for... What a dangerous ordeal finding the best coffee had become. I wondered what the wonderful coffee was that entranced me. I flipped the bag around and discovered it was my beloved Equator - Alligator French! Who needs to leave home for a little action? The Equator Alligator French Roast will surely help put a little adventure in your cup! This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. The ever popular Redcab - Brazil Espresso is a classic Barefoot mainstay that always hits the mark. On Target! Its flavor notes hint of taffy and cacao in a dry aroma followed by layers of hazelnut, caramel, plum and dark chocolate that really deliver. Redcab is wonderfully heavy bodied and round with an outstanding cream finish that will make you come back for more. Pull an espresso shot and get ready for blast of flavor explosion! This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. Ah yes, not too long ago, I was back on my private jet heading to South America in my never-ending search for the holy grail of coffees. On a secret tip from my faithful valet Baldrick, somewhere in the northern region of South America, Doma Coffee was rumored to have a special secret blend of immense chocolate and tobacco notes befitting royalty. Upon touching down in Bogota, I was greeted at the runway by a mysterious woman with skin as dark and lovely as the roasted beans I was searching for. It was immediately obvious she knew why I had come and had expected me. Once off the plane, I waved farewell to my loyal companion and Go-Go dancer entourage, loading my luggage and favorite French press into her jeep. After an hour of enduring rough terrain plus a rather sore bottom, we arrived at her secluded field. Once parked, we proceeded to hike to the top of the hill where her colleagues were busy sorting, blending and roasting the day’s harvest. We sat down together at a small bistro table beside the roasting shed and locking her eyes to mine, she finally spoke. She said her name is Carmela and she had a coffee that would ensnare my senses. Her hands clapped twice and a young boy of 14 appeared with a wooden tray and two cups of this magical liquid. Scrutinizing the contents I could immediately smell the essence of dark chocolate and tobacco lingering in the air like a siren to a lonely sailor. I lifted the cup to my lips and upon my first sip I felt overtaken by the chocolatey passion, knocking me out of my chair. It was as if my clothes were flying everywhere, like Charlie Brown on the receiving end of a speeding fastball. I quickly regained my senses, however, like a Kennedy, I was bewildered to find my pants missing. Seeing me in a rather vulnerable state, Carmela grinned with cheeky approval. Come hither, Carmela! Having satisfied my scrutiny and recovering my favorite bespoke Kent & Haste trousers, I provided Carmela her payment. Now Doma is sharing Carmela’s blend with true coffee aficionados back home. Suffice to say this decadent roast is, to say the least, Peaberry Approved. This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. Clang your Tibetan singing bowl. Temple's Dharma Espresso will transform you. You may think I am crazy, or jacked up on caffeine but I believe man's understanding of the dharma of inanimate things and the universe will be clearer with each sip. Okay, maybe that is stretching it a bit, but this is a great espresso. It is a perfect mix of Latin America and Ethiopian coffees. As straight espresso, it is a more fruit forward shot, with a bit of lively acidity. I like lively. In cappuccino and milk type drinks, it has a silky creaminess. The flavor brings to mind childhood memories. Flavor flashbacks, like those cups of frozen malted ice cream from the baseball game. You know the ones that you eat with a flat wooden spoon? Or maybe it is more like the soft, milky powdery soft notes, like the ones in Whoppers Malted Milk Ball candy. Great as a shot and comforting with cream. Don't be fooled by the name. Dharma may sound Zen but it is sure to get a lot of excitement. This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. 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. This is a fun right quote.
