Lucha Libre - Firecreek Coffee Company - Cave Creek, AZ
Preparation: Cuisinart Coffee Maker
Scores: Scale of 1 - 10 with 10 being excellent
Summary: This full city roast of different Mexican Altura coffee beans is great in the good morning! I brewed a big pot of this medium bodied coffee and am glad I did because it is easy on the tummy and very smooth. When the hot water hit the ground beans it frothed and bloomed like a volcano, proving the beans were extremely fresh. There are no punches or surprises here. No big flavors that are overwhelming.....just a real nice cuppa Joe. Personally, I paired this coffee with a big chocolate mousse muffin from Mimi's Cafe. I would classify this pairing as a homerun! Lucha Libre coffee enhanced and magnified the chocolate flavors of the muffin so much so that I almost ate the whole muffin before I could take a picture of it!!!
Overall score: 9
