Foodbuzz's Tastemakers recently sent me two bags of Peet's Coffee to try. I love my coffee so I couldn't wait to give both a try.
I first tried Cafe Solano which is a medium roast. The beans are a blend of vibrant and aromatic beans from Africa, the Americas and the Indo Pacific. When they say this coffee is Lively and Aromatic - they weren't kidding. This coffee was very pleasing.
The second coffee was Cafe Domingo which is also a medium roast. This coffee come from three Latin American beans giving it a smooth taste with a hint of toffee sweetness and a clean crisp finish. They described this one perfectly! I love my flavored coffees but sometimes the flavor is simply too strong. To correct this I mix my flavored coffee 1/4 to 3/4 with regular. This gives me just a touch of flavor. With the Cafe Domingo, the hint of toffee is so light and delicate that there is no need to dilute. This is a great morning as well as evening coffee.
And my travel cup comes in just in time for the crisp mornings we've been having here in NC.
