Alchemist's Blend #10 - Tequila Moonrise - Organic

Origin: Organic Blend

Type: That would be telling

Year: 2018/19

Certification:  Organic

Flavor Notes:

Chocolate, rich and deep, to warm you up while watching that beautiful moonrise, while sipping a neat pour of Elixir of Agave.  There is also a subtle fruity winey undertone and hints of smoke.  This has a lighter roast character than Shadow's Silhouette but was roasted heavy enough to bring a lovely deepness to the cup.

And again, this is not your mother’s hot chocolate. And this is also not coffee. It stands on its own merits, so judge it on what you taste, not what you expect or what it isn’t.

This Brewing cocoa works well in coffee brewers and actually mixed with coffee. Other brewing cocoas can have a tendency to muddy the flavor of coffee I have found, or worse, clog brewing filters or screens. Your mileage may vary, but I’ve found 1:1 ratio wonderful, and if you are just a little careful, so it does not overflow, even straight can work well. Your tastes may vary but I recommend starting with the following proportions and times: 4 T/8 oz boiling water Steep 5 minutes Press (assuming you are using a press pot - drip works ok too) Enjoy straight, with milk (or cream) and/or sugar.
