i just bought a bag of peet's house blend coffee (whole bean) from a reputable local shop and after i opened the bag i was shocked to see how oily and dark it was. i still wanted to give it a try just because of the peet's name, so i went ahead to grind it with my burr grinder. what a mistake, it jamed my ginder - the first time since i had it for more than 3 years.
i still managed to get a cup and i have to say this thing is nasty. it
doesn't have any of the coffee aroma but stink. i guess it's not
surprising, since such dark roast will sure burn off all the delicate
i just wonder why they have to burn their coffee straight into charcoal
and oil? after such a bad experience, one thing is certain - this is
the end of peet's coffee for me, ever.
