Ethopia Mordecofe (organic) -Stumptown Coffee Roasters - Portland, Oregon
Preparation: Mr. Coffee Drip
Scores: Scale of 1 - 10 with 10 being excellent
Summary: I LOVE Stumptown coffee!!!! I have never tried Ethiopia Mordecofe beans before and now I am a huge fan! The beans themselves look like a medium roast and they are not shiny or oily.
The roasting date on the bag says August 8 (today is the 12th) and that is perfection! The fragrance escaped with wild abandon when I opened the bag for the first time. I knew this was going to be good!
The flavors of malt, honey and soft ripe fruit all come together nicely and they are completely compatible. There is not a big pucker punch at the end, instead it is a calm and smooth finish. A delightful coffee to serve anytime.
My actual trek to Stumptown was great! Kerri and I went to the downtown location (128 SW 3rd Ave.) I bought my beans to take home, but of course we had to order a "specialty" coffee drink! I ordered a Coffee Latte with non-fat milk and Kerri ordered a Macchiato. Oh my, GOODNESS!!! I thought my Latte was out of this world until I tasted Kerri's Macchiato. Wow! It reminded me of the coffee I drank in Sweden. I will definitely order that next time! Also, look closely at the work of art in making each of these fabulous drinks....
If you are ever in Portland visiting, I would highly recommend a visit to Stumptown Coffee. They have several locations......just do a google search and find the one most convenient for you.
Overall score: 10
