Pirates of Coffee is striving to change the coffee world for the better with initiatives such as transparency on a level that I can’t recall seeing to this point. It really puts information in the consumer’s hand regarding where their coffee was grown, how it was grown, etc. They also sent out a very informative email with details about the coffee which was super cool! I want to dive deeper into what makes Pirates of Coffee so special, but that is for another blog post. For now, let’s review their debut release- Treasure of Panama!
This was one hell of a fantastic coffee! For starters, the smell of this coffee reminded me exactly of a Snickers bar (with a slight hint of peanut butter). Now, with this in mind, one might think this coffee might be incredibly sweet, but that was not the case. It was sweet, but not to the point of being off-putting. From the initial sip, I got an instant hit of caramel, followed by chocolate notes. As the coffee cooled, I tasted more peanut butter, which rounded the cup out nicely. All in all, it was smooth sailing from start to finish. A real treasure of a coffee.
