Booskerdoo 2013 Festivus Blend Review | Gift Guide

booskerdoo coffe co 2013 festivus blend in mason jar

Christmas is quickly approaching, but I hope you haven’t forgotten about the other late December holiday that’s coming up. In celebration of Festivus, Booskerdoo gifted me a mason jar full of freshly roasted 2013 Festivus Blend. A great cup of coffee is just the thing to give you a mental edge over the other guests at this Festivus’ Airing of Grievances.

My jar of Festivus Blend was roasted on 12/12 and is noticeably, amazingly fresh. As someone who probably loves coffee tastings more than wine tastings, I can tell you that this blend tends to be mild with low acidity and is extremely full-flavored. Light roasts are fantastic for cold brewing, so I cold brewed a batch overnight. I used about 2/3 cup of beans for 6 cups of water because I’m a total iced coffee monster.
