Review: Aduro Bean Artisan Blend
The Artisan Blend is part of the house blends that Aduro Bean offers.
Fair Trade/Organic. Named for our friends at Artisan Baking Company in Fort Worth, this blend was created to pair with their wonderful breads and baked goods. A complex blend designed to linger on the tongue. Nuts and chocolate abound. Perfect with desserts. $10.50/lb
A first scent, the Artisan coffee from Aduro Bean puts off a nutty body with a traditional coffee aroma. It really reminds me of that first inhale of higher quality coffee that I got years ago when the obsession started. As with most coffee obsessed individuals, I started off my foray into premium coffees with nuttier medium-dark blends. This Artisan coffee from Aduro Bean brought me right back to that moment.
The tasting experience with the Artisan blend is a nutty one…literally. The roast does lean towards the darker side of the medium roast spectrum and your taste buds can pick up on the nutty taste almost immediately. It is after some careful contemplation that you pick up on the chocolate back end with a slight acidity.
The Artisan blend as a clean feeling in the mouth so you are not going to get that coating feeling that you can see how of the darker blends.
Overall, there isn’t really anything mind blowing about the Artisan blend from Aduro Bean, but it is a high quality, fair trade that is very enjoyable with bread and deserts as detailed in the description. If you are looking for a good tasting, nutty blend to compliment your after dinner events and a great group of people to deal with (I have had a great experience with the crew over at Aduro Bean), give the Artisan Blend a try. At $10.50 a pound, you are not going to break the bank in your pursuit to serve high quality java that isn’t superstore processed.
