This bag of Mirador coffee from Colombia was a delight. Perfect black, a little sweet with citrus notes that go perfectly with early mornings and the need to get some writing done. If you’ve yet to get any coffee from Lexington Coffee Roasters, what are you waiting for? Their coffee is so worth trying.
Kiwi berries and chrysanthemum tea make for a lovely afternoon snack on an unseasonably cold day. If you haven’t tried kiwi berries yet, I highly recommend them. They have all the joy of regular kiwi but in bite size and without the fuzzy skin.

Rare Bird had El Filo coffee from Honduras last week. I hadn’t had it before, but I had a cup at the café and had to buy a bag. It’s a lovely lightly roasted nutty coffee. It definitely tastes fruity in a non-citrus way. The bag describes this as an apple flavor, but I’m not sure I could be that specific. There is a subtle chocolatey note at the finish. All in all, it’s a delicious coffee, perfect for drinking black.
Ah yes, it’s time for my all time favorite Christmas commercial.
Falls Church has a wonderful coffee shop called Rare Bird. They do small batch roasting mostly in light and medium roasts. I couldn’t be happier that they are within walking distance of my house. The staff is welcoming, the atmosphere is great, and the coffee is amazing. The espresso drinks are also well done and they have a decent selection of teas for a coffee shop. If you’re in the area you should definitely check it out and then walk down to Little City Creamery for some ice cream to make a perfect day.
The Kiangoi coffee shown below is a perfect example of what Rare Bird can do. The coffee is sweet and complex and delicious black.
