A little over a week ago I attended a Saturday morning coffee tasting with The Bloggers’ Collective and Craft Coffee. I’m definitely a little bit of a coffee fiend and treated the tasting about the same as a wine tasting– observe color, sniff, taste.

I think they would be perfect for making bulletproof coffee (you know, the coffee with butter in it), which I’ve been meaning to try. I love espresso even more than coffee and am also curious about how the flavor of Craft Coffee beans hold up in cappuccino. Everyone at the tasting left with a complimentary sample, so I’ll definitely be trying out an espresso grind with some of my beans.
