When I opened up the package you could smell an intense nutty blend and even after pleasantly waffling through the kitchen, for a light roast, you could still smell the distinct aroma. I wondered if it would have the same taste and it did. But, softer for a light roast blend (guess that’s why it’s light roast huh? lol). It was very good! This is, as you can see, #TheFreshMarket ‘s Just Jo Brand. This is a sample and I can tell I will purchase the regular size.
5 cups for flavor
5 cups for taste
5 cups for the price of a sample bag
SIDE NOTE: Blue Mountain coffee has a blue green color in it’s original brew.
Oh. My. Coffee Beans! The Community Coffee’s Brazil Santos Bourbon is as smooth as a good Bourbon and as flavorful, without being overpowering. When you pour it in your cup it’s the color of a good bourbon. Rich to the eyes. True to its medium dark roast with a bittersweet aftertaste. You know, like the bittersweet aftertaste you get from a dark chocolate. More of a semisweet than bittersweet in my opinion once you add your creamer and honey/sugar. (I always let you know I add 2 tsp of creamer and 1 tsp or 1 tbsp of honey). Yes you can smell the aroma when you open the package and it does slightly fill the kitchen with a light and airy smell. A hint of bourbon waffling through the house….ahhhh yes lol!
5 cups for flavor (bourbon)
5 cups for taste
6.49-8.99 a bag and worth it. 5 cups for price
Side Note: Chocolate and bourbon together is something you should try. Oh and the coffee was about this color when I poured it in my cup.
Obviously I just fell off the turnip truck 🚚 (a reference to ignorance). I never thought of adding cinnamon and nutmeg to my coffee 🍵 Until I discovered Spice Island drip coffee at the local shop Bedrock Market and Café on S.Main in Memphis,TN.
So, being the nerd I am, I looked up Island Spice and found the Saigon Cinnamon and Nutmeg. But, oh, my mind started to churn… What other spices could I sprinkle into my coffee? Mixes and matches which I prefer to call concoctions.
Well today I decided to just roll with cinnamon but, I’m looking into some other ideas I’ll share with you (Coffee) POT HEADS soon.

I am a coffee connoisseur. I don’t just drink coffee for the heck of it. It’s a ritual. Every one of us need some sort of morning routine before the busyness of the day unfolds. It gives us a sense of grounding. Coffee in the morning is a part of my “ME” time. After I open my eyes, give thanks, pray and get ready for the day, coffee and I watch the news. If it’s the weekend and I’m in my pajamas it’s usually reflection time. Hence my Saturday and Sunday Musings with coffee blogs. Coffee is a gathering of self for me. I’m always ready and willing to try different coffee from around the world and from local brewers. I’ve had geisha coffee in Panama. I’ve had Panama coffee. I’ve had coffee from Columbia in South Beach that was so strong it had me shaking after a few sips! They add a piece of chocolate 🍫 to the coffee. Anyways, it’s morning and I’m brewing a cup of my regular house brand. It’s the French Roast. I’m going to start a coffee review and information category under this blog. I’m going to call it COFFEE CONNOISSEUR.
