So, as a die hard Buckster.. Not because I work for the company but I truly do love their coffee.
Their line of Blondes came out this Tuesday and it's encouraged to try each type of coffee: Blonde, Medium and Dark. I love this idea. I love to try and do tastings. It's one of my favorite parts of my job. About 2% of the coffees don't appeal to me. Willow is one of those.
Two Blondes walk into a Starbucks... One named Willow, one named Veranda. This coffee whore tried the Willow and without cream or sugar it tasted like... An airhead.
While it had a crisp acidity, similar to Breakfast Blend is was ...blah. Really light, like too light. I thought it was pressed wrong so I asked for another sample. Same. No joke.
Ok, ok so I'm a dark roast fan. I drink espresso like its water but I can appreciate a lighter roast if it has flavor able characteristics. It was so mild and mild I was afraid cream and sugar would turn it into an "amateur"
Amateur: Coffee made with so much cream and sugar you can't taste the coffee. Example: "I'd like a Venti (20oz) Mocha with one shot"
So, does this review make you curious?
Does it make you want to try it yourself?
I say you provide us a question and I'll BUY a bag of Willow to giveaway to a random question, um, giver!!
Prove us wrong! Tell us why you think it's a good coffee.
I dare ya.
