January 1 started with a mocha at midnight.
The cup was a gift from my oldest daughter. On the other side is a photo of my girls & I hugging.
I used Major Dickason's blend from Peet's Coffee & Tea. Maybe at midnightI should have used a decaf, but this stuff does make a nice shot. Unpasturized whole milk from my local farmer. -- I buy my milk from the back of a van in a parking lot. Makes me feel dagerous! :-) -- I made a cinnamon espresso sauce which doesn't show up well but it's there on top.
I like Major Dickason's. It's consistent and tasty. They also tell you when it was roasted on the side of the bag. Something that is important to me.
Today is Jan 2 and my coffee for today is from Oddly Correct here in Kansas City.
It's from Costa Rica and gettng close to 2 weeks old so it's time to use it up. It's Finca Chayote that was Honey Process from Villa Sarchi.
I don't know that I tasted the red grapes & cranberries as suggested but I do taste roasted nut and something slightly sweet.
I made it with a pour over. Nice head of crema and a good aroma.
The cup is a vintage mug that perfectly matches my non vintage stoneware set.
It's a smaller cup - by my standards anyway- 8 oz. I had two cups.
This mug is one I have duplicates of. I've decided to sell off some of the duplicates on etsy. I have a lot of vintage mugs and not a lot of storage space. I'm also dedicating this year to minimizing the amount of stuff I have, so keeping duplicates is not in line with that resolution.
