Even a large conglomerate corporation like SB can screw up and get something right.:D

I find it funny how sometimes people chafe under flavor descriptions of cigars and coffee by reviewers. :D
For an 11oz Everlast glove in the face worth of blueberry, a good Harrar will do you.
I have recently been suffering, TRYING hard to figure out why so many pipe smokers wax poetic over MacBarens Plumcake. The whole thing escapes me. I read the words about the wonderful flavors people experience with it and I really want to have it, too. And then they hear me go on about this blueberry freaking coffee from a mokapot and they think I'm more full of beans than my grinder.
It's hard to find and define these pipe, cigar and coffee (dare I say it?) nuances when we find them and (Lord knows) harder still to tell someone their idea of a dreamy taste is your idea of a nightmare and vice versa. Poor old ResIpsa, for example, is trapped in his nightmare of being unable to love Starbucks coffee while the rest of us blithely swoon over the Sulawesi. Sniff. Poor man. :r
Well, you know what I mean.
Or maybe not. Sometimes I don't know what I mean. I sometimes speak in tonguesagbabadabbadab. Ask anyone.
So ask Root about he blueberry. It blue my mind - I really didn't expect it to be there but it most certainly was.
just to chime in... Sulawesi has been my favorite beanage from SB for years... the only thing I recall liking more was their (kinda pricey) Aged Sulawesi from a few years back (maybe a decade by now...). Their Anniversary Blend is usually good, and there's maybe 1 or 2 others that work in a pinch. Love French-pressed coffee, but only with the darker/bold roasts.
My favorite local joint is Caffe Ladro - their Diablo Blend is a very yummy dark roast... and when they have it, their Ethiopian Yirg. is awesome (and, to me, it has some blueberry nuances).
