Diary of a Coffee Addict : Xpress Coffee
Those who read my twitter stream will know that coffee and I have a fairly complex and intimate relationship with the mornings. Often my descriptions of that beloved beverage will lead some people to wonder if the coffee and IÂ dont need a room and some alone time. It comes as a delight then that a suggestive tweet of opportunity should lead to my addiction being encouraged by one of twitters many online brand presences Xpress Coffee.
What came in the post on Friday morning was a box of delights which shall keep my twitterings of caffeinated contentment continuing for many months to come. Lets begin with the content before I discuss the experience.
In the Box I found a Bodum C-Mill Black Grinder and the following bags of coffee beans waiting to be ground. 500g Blue Mountain , 500Gg Bourbon Dark , 500g Italia Espresso , 250g Fairtrade Organic, 500g Rainforest Alliance 100% aribica, 500g Supa Crema and 500g Fairtrade Guatemalan Antigua. A huge box deserves a huge thank you to Xpress Coffee for their generosity.
Blue mountain coffee sitting in my mug already I feel like im sitting with a girl whose more used to cocktail parties and catwalks.
Leaving this coffee to steep fills the kitchen with a deep “coffee shop” smell of bitter oils and warm scents that leave me wishing I had invested in some pastries and a large newspaper to read. Though Im settling back with Macbook pro and this blog. Its not a working coffee it feels like the drink you serve when freiend come round to shoot the breeze and talk technology of an afternoon ( hey I have friends that might do that ! )
Now I am off to order some airtight containers to put the rest of these beans into before freezing them.
