Christmas is quickly approaching, but I hope you haven’t forgotten about the other late December holiday that’s coming up. In celebration of Festivus, Booskerdoo gifted me a mason jar full of freshly roasted 2013 Festivus Blend. A great cup of coffee is just the thing to give you a mental edge over the other guests at this Festivus’ Airing of Grievances.
My jar of Festivus Blend was roasted on 12/12 and is noticeably, amazingly fresh. As someone who probably loves coffee tastings more than wine tastings, I can tell you that this blend tends to be mild with low acidity and is extremely full-flavored. Light roasts are fantastic for cold brewing, so I cold brewed a batch overnight. I used about 2/3 cup of beans for 6 cups of water because I’m a total iced coffee monster. The blend is really, really good on it’s own. I usually take my coffee with a dash of cinnamon but omitted it in this recipe. The iced brew had an unexpected touch of sweetness and a hint of fruit.
I attended an early Festivus celebration last week as all of my friends will be away on December 23rd (the actual date of Festivus). We did not participate in the Airing of Grievances, but if number of plates of deep-fried food consumed counts… well, we definitely had Feats of Strength covered.
An 11.5 oz jar of 2013 Festivus Blend will set you back $12.99 at Booskerdoo. However, free shipping is only available on orders of $20 or more.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Just order two.
