You're Bold, Rebellious, Self-Assured
Coffee, for you my bold friend, is a means of confidence, of being. While you sip your coffee, espresso, or cold brew you make things happen. You prefer a darker roast, something with body, flavor and complexity but nothing too fruity, sweet, or adventurous. You keep things crisp and clean on the pallet. You're drawn to simple brewing methods like drip, espresso shots, or a simple coffee machine.
Finding coffee that's right for you.
- Avoid added syrups or flavorings. Your taste is refined and unique. Be on the look out for simple, natural flavors without too many additions. Stay with nutty blends, classic dark roasts, and single-origin coffees.
- Brew with care. Be mindful of how you prepare your coffee. For a flavor profile you'll enjoy, keep it simple and natural. Obviously, the classic coffee alone is a standout favorite. Drink it black or with a slight dash of half and half, milk, or milk alternative. Be watchful of milk types too, nut milk, oat milk, or soy milk can change the flavor drastically and take away from the perfect simplicity of your cup.
- Dark, small-batch roasts. Shop for dark roasts that are roasted in small batches. One of the secrets of the coffee industry is that huge vats of beans are roasted together and then kept on shelves in bags for months on end before it reaches your coffee maker. Clean, well-roasted coffee should stay good for a few months but keep an eye on that roast date. Coffee beans that are roasted to a dark level can get acidic and sometimes even oily after a while. As always, once you open a bag of your small-batch dark roast coffee, tie the bag by pressing out all of the air or store in an air tight container, only use the grounds you need right in that moment.
