49th Parallel Coffee Roasters

"Black as the devil, hot as hell, pure as an angel, sweet as love" is the motto for 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters. I saw this coffee at Williams-Sonoma and it smelled heavenly, so I figured me and the coffee addicts could give it a whirl. I snagged Longitude 123* W - the signature coffee blend. The label says "Butterscotch and caramel dominate this medium-bold coffee blend. It is sweet and polished, with gentle wine notes and medium acidity." I used our automatic drip coffee maker, freshly ground beans - truly nothing fancy like my coffee press - and it really was divine. I put in my usual 2 Equal and 2 Coffeemate creamer packets and it was actually too sweet for me. So for my second cup, I just added the creamer and no sweetener and it was perfect. This blend isn't artificially flavored, but it really was caramelly and butterscotchy! I can't wait to have more.

It was $14.95 for 12 ounces, so a little on the pricey side, but a worthwhile treat if you love coffee. Trust me on this one, it was as sweet as love.
