I hope I never, never, never, never, NEVER talk on my cell phone while someone is waiting on me like checking out at the grocery store or STARBUCKS or whereever– that is so very rude. Ok, enough said about that.

Two coffee tastings today, both multi-region blends from the regions of Africa and Latin America, one organic: Cafe Estima and Serena Organic.

Cafe Estima is a bold but smooth blend and goes well with nuts, cocoa and caramel. It’s a Fair Trade coffee and has low acidity and full body resulting in a smooth, velvety  mouth feel with a roasty-sweet finish.

Serena Organic is a medium bodied roast and even before I read about it I could really pick up on the citrus tones in the coffee. It goes well with citrus, nuts and tart fruits. It’s a complex yet approachable blend offering medium-bodied balance, crisp acidity and citrus flavor with subtle floral notes. That’s what it says in the coffee passport.

Tomorrow I hope to do a  tasting with Yukon and Gold Coast blends, both Asian Pacific and Latin American.

I had that funny thing happen to me again where a customer has a Starbucks card but not enough on it to pay for their order and they want to reload the card and pay for the order with a $20. So today, since the order was already rung [as usual when you get into this situation], I paid for the order with what was left on the card, paid the rest of the order from the $20. cash, then, in a separate transaction, I reloaded the card with the remaining change. That seems to work for me, you don’t have to back out of the transaction already in progress and the customer gets their discount [assuming it’s a registered card].
