Two more coffee tastings today. Both multi-region blends– French Roast and Italian Roast.
The French Roast I did not like at all. It is without a doubt the worst I’ve ever tasted– EXTREMELY dark, bold and bitter. Tasted like I would imagine an ash tray tasting– a very burnt taste. This is Starbuck’s darkest roast and I’m not sure who would like it and why.
The Italian Roast however was a whole different experience, which is kind of odd since these two blends are so similar. Both go well with caramelized sugar. The Italian goes well with roasted vegetables.
I also tasted a Green Tea Frappuccino and LOVED IT! I just may have a new favorite and that’s exactly why you sample to customers. I would NEVER have tried it– it’s GREEN. Why would I want to drink something GREEN?!? However, I sampled the leftover from a customer’s drink and was pleasantly surprised. You should try a Green Tea Frappuccino with extra whip 🙂
Next week I will start working on my Tea Passport.
