Starbucks' House Blend

Today's coffee is Starbucks' House Blend brewed in a Curtis D500/D60gt Coffeemaker.

Starbucks' House Blend
     What Starbucks' has to say: One sip and you immediately recognize the characteristics that make this coffee so distinctively Starbuckian. An attention to quality in sourcing the finest Latin American beans. A care in the roast that brings forth all of the flavors locked within those beans. And a smile as the cup is handed across the counter to you. Enjoy with: A slice of banana nut bread and an overstuffed chair.

Curtis D500/D60gt Coffeemaker
     What I have to say about it: House blends are usually always a safe bet when you don't know what kind of coffee to get. That being said, this is a good house blend. Its not too bitter, not too vibrant. It's an intentionally mediocre and neutral coffee. It has a woody aroma, like fresh chopped green foliage, and an enjoyably smooth aftertaste. Like freshly overturned topsoil, this coffee's flavor is light and earthy. Enjoy with: Any food with heavy overpowering flavors, anything bold.
