Starbucks is pretty much a staple in my daily routine, so when they sent over the Single Origin coffee I was overjoyed to see such a variety of tasty coffee to sample! They also sent over a gorgeous, hand-crafted-looking hand towel that I adore! With coffee from Rwanda, Timor, and Guatemala it's almost like I get to travel the world each time I take a sip of coffee and my little hand towel looks like the souvenir I brought back with me!

Ever had a single origin coffee? If you are anything like I used to be, you just know you like Starbucks and aren't really sure what that means. Single-origin coffee gets many of its distinguishing characteristics from where it's grown - the soil, climate, and elevation where it's cultivated are the main distinguishing factors. I like to compare the complexity of how these single-origin coffees taste to fine wines, the flavors are unique to their origin and each has a taste of their own.

The delicious Rift Valley originates from Rwanda and is absolutely amazing, my favorite of the three single-origin coffees they sent over. It's medium bodied, with a spicy dark chocolate undertone, and has a hint of citrus and a ridiculously tasty heady floral scent. It's a bit like heaven in a glass.

The Mount Ramelau originates from Timor and is balanced and very smooth. It has a mild herbal spice with a roasty-sweet finish. While sipping on this coffee, you can almost picture the smallholder farmers, meticulously tending each plant, and selecting only the ripest cherries to process, resulting in a smooth, refined cup of joe that I crave again and again!

The last coffee they sent over originates from Guatemala and is named Laguna de Ayarza. It's a very rich coffee, with a crisp citrus notes and a sweet, chocolatey after taste. The flavors are deep and complex, yet simple and delicious. I love sharing this coffee with my husband while we lounge in our backyard in the morning, it's just right for a pick-me-up!
