Goodness, do I love coffee. Whenever I have the opportunity to try a new blend or origin of coffee, I will never pass it up! Being a coffee enthusiast, I have a deep appreciate for coffee. I don’t just it for the caffeine, but more because of the flavors and comfort it brings. When I was offered to sample Bethesda Roasting Co.’s coffee, I couldn’t help but say ‘yes’ and jump all in.
As I’m lucky to be able to just work my nannying job in the afternoons, I’m able to have my mornings to myself. The majority of my mornings look like sleeping in, blogging, and of course, making coffee. (Don’t worry, I’ve had my fair share of years where I had barely any sleep, because I had to work multiple jobs to put myself through school). Anyway, coffee is usually the highlight of my morning, as it should be.
Over the past couple of years, I have expanded my love for coffee by experimenting with different brewing methods. And oh my soul, I am so glad that I did! My favorite way to brew coffee is pour over with my Chemex. Shown in these photos is my tiny 3-cup Chemex, which is perfect for days alone. Though, when Michael and I have coffee together, we will typically use our 8-cup Chemex. We’re huge fans and I plan to get every size, because yes, I need them.
Bethesda Coffee Co. sent me four whole bean, 6oz packs of Mexican Altura coffee in dark roast, as well as a heavy duty tumbler. I was so thrilled that there was an option to choose whole bean over ground, as I prefer to grind my own coffee right before I make it.
From the moment I opened up the coffee, the smell just brought me in to love it right then. The scent easily carried throughout our entire apartment as I was making it. This coffee seriously smells like heaven!
When I first sipped the coffee, I immediately loved the bold taste that it had. I continued to drink it black, because it was just that good. On my second cup, I added in a tiny bit of creamer and it was still simply delicious. Yesterday morning before Michael headed off to work, I had made him some of Bethesda Roasting Co.’s coffee to take with him. When he got home from work he let me know right away how great the coffee was from that morning.
I am seriously so thankful that I still have a few packs of their coffee left, as the taste is fantastic. I can say confidently that I’ll be purchasing more from them in the future.
