Dave the Coffee Guy Reviews: Equal Exchange’s Organic Mind, Body & Soul

This month’s Bean-to-Pick is Equal Exchange’s Organic Mind, Body & Soul.  Mind, Body & Soul contains hints of chocolaty sweetness and nutty goodness.  A sweet treat with a light, smooth flavor.

Check out this description from Equal Exchange:

“Post-Roast Blend: Medium and Vienna Roasts

Aroma: butterscotch, vanilla custard, pecans, milk chocolate
Flavor: balanced, cocoa, caramelized sugar, malt
Mouthfeel: weighty and thick
Acidity: light sparkle
Aftertaste: dark chocolate, walnut, brown sugar”

Since my wife won’t let me have desserts anymore, this makes for a tasty substitute.  (Not that I’m pouting or anything.)

RATING: 4/5 Cups

SCALE: 5 = Best Ever! / 4½ = Superior / 4 = Excellent / 3½ = Very Good / 3 = Good / 2½ = Average / 2 = Fair / 1 = Poor

Enjoy,
