Coffee of the Month Club: Blend 90

This month’s little bundle of joy arrived from Trager Brothers all freshly roasted and ready for drinking. This turned out to be good news for my sister Joan, who was staying with us overnight. Joan loves a rich dark roast, and Blend 90 made her very happy. She said it was delicious and made a lot of happy noises while drinking it.

Not a fan of dark roasts, I was a little less impressed. Blend 90 is a combination of beans from four different coffee regions. Trager Brothers doesn’t tell us which four, and frankly, with dark roast, it probably doesn’t matter. If you like some rich darkness in your cup, check out this Blend 90 so you too can make happy noises while you drink it.

Meanwhile, I decided in the picture with this post to juxtapose a light roast coffee with a dark roast so that people unfamiliar with light roast can really see the difference. On the right side are the Blend 90 beans. On the left side you can see some Kieni beans from Kenya. Lexington Coffee Roasters have given them the lightest of roasts, preserving the unique character of the region and almost all of the caffeine. I make the same happy noises over it that Joan made over the Blend 90.

You should check them both out and let me know what you think.
