Whittard Pico Duarte Coffee
This was the first one I'd made in a while and je-sus this came out blacker than the Black Hole Of Calcutta. So what's with the delicate looking butterflies on the front of this I wonder? Now, I'm sure I didn't cock-up the brewing process, and this is officially rated a strength 3, so how it ended up a throat puncher I'll never know. But I think I have to face facts: that I over did it and that the strength here, while welcome, is slightly false and it's a really bitter cup that needs an extra tweak of sugar to get it down. I've enjoyed it though - a perfect afternoon pick-me-up. An easy 7/10 for this one. Shame we can only have one cup from the tiny packet.
"A rare Caribbean coffee, silky smooth with hints of spice. This exceptional coffee is grown on the mountainous slopes of the Dominican Republic, lulled by the gentle trade winds and balmy humid climate. Limestone rich soil gives it a unique taste profile that distinguishes it from South American beans. This coffee's mellow smoothness and medium body is balanced by a piquant acidity with subtle notes of spice. Perfect served black, or with milk, let its exotic aroma transport you to Caribbean seas."
