Our review of the York Coffee House Blend.

New York Coffee house blend

First, a big thank-you to CoffeeForLess for sending us this coffee.

As always when we review a coffee, we grind the beans just before brewing, leave it for a couple of minutes to cool and, of course, taste it black.

Also, I always have my partner-in-tasting, Johanne, have the first taste. Besides having the better nose for subtle aromas, she is also more expressive than I am when it comes to her first reaction to any coffee.

With the New York Coffee House Blend I watched carefully, because I know she generally prefers a darker roasted coffee. And this is a medium-roasted, fairly mild coffee.

But she immediately made some very appreciative noises. I don’t think you’ll find any of those noises in a professional coffee cupper’s checklist or manual, but she clearly liked the coffee.

Then it was my turn. As I had expected, the taste is fairly mild. No bitterness or hard edges. And no dominant tastes that jumped out for attention.

She enjoyed what she described as a range of earthy and nutty tones. I could see what she meant, but when I tried it, I was taken by the fairly subtle and soft sweetness of the coffee.

And this really is a subtle coffee. We wouldn’t have it for the first cup of the day, when we both appreciate something with a bit more jolt. But for mid-morning, or after dinner in the evening, it hits the spot just right.

We also found that it was much better when tasted black. With cream and sugar added, all those subtle tones where drowned.

But that’s the thing about medium and light roasted coffees. You get less of a punch to the palette, but a much broader range of subtle tastes and tones.

For anyone who really appreciates the finer points of coffee flavors, this is certainly a coffee you should try.
