Welp I'm a coffee snob now...
October 9, 2018
I got gifted a bean box and it ruined me. I used to be fine with gas station coffee, free office coffee, K-cups, dunkin donuts, etc. No longer. I can't even remember the specific roaster or whatever because I threw the bag away after dumping the beans into my container but what a difference. Like the first time you try a craft IPA after drinking bud light your whole life. Night and day.
So now instead of cheap grocery store coffee I'm spending ~$26/month on bean box AND I'm buying whole bean coffee from the local roaster on my block at work. I do normal (i.e. cheaper but still kinda expensive) coffee at work everyday and save the (premium) bean box stuff for weekends when I can relax with my wife and try to pick out the "tasting notes". The 12 ounce bag per month is perfect for this. So it is REALLY good and it's a great weekend tradition/treat but be careful because you will find yourself venturing ever-further into coffee snobbery. I even tested the temperature of the water I poured into my chemex the other day. Seriously - I'm insufferable. And it can happen to you. So don't say you weren't warned.
