I’m late, I know! In my defense I had to go out for Chinese food and be sociable last night. And it was really good fun, but by the time I got back I was more interested in going to bed than writing a coffee review.
Also, the udon noodles with mixed meat at Rainbow in Hatfield? Best Chinese meal EVER. But this isn’t a chinese food blog! It’s a coffee blog (Wait, I could have been ordering out for chinese every night and claiming it was for research? Dammit! Oh well, too late now).
Well dunk me in coffee and call me a jammie dodger. It’s another Colombian coffee and it’s another one in the “Like column”! We started off well with the name. As a huge Doctor Who fan, all I could hear in my head when I saw this one was “SILENCIO MUST FALL!”. I’ll pause for the rueful shaking of heads and eyerolling. All done? Good.
This one was genuinely really nice. It was another that was almost floral in flavour, really light and quite unique. I’m not sure if it’s something I’d want to have everyday, but it was something quite different and something I think I’d get in occasionally when I wanted something out of the ordinary. Not sure if it would work in a syphon, I suspect the floral notes would become unpleasantly strong but for an espresso based drink it was really pleasant. I’d probably steer clear of using it for hot milk based drinks as this is another where I suspect the light flavour would be overwhelmed by the milk.
Right, moving swiftly on to Day 12!
