In search of the best coffee
As promised in my last linky party, I’m sharing with you my month long experience of looking for a good, ground coffee.
I started out with The Flying Squirrel that sent me 7 sample packets of coffee. I don’t know whether it was a good idea or a bad one because oftentimes, a wide choice leaves you more confused than ever!
However, since I am always unsure of what I really like and what I really want, an option like this is actually the best for a person like me. I now know exactly how I like my coffee. At different times of day, I like different kinds of coffee.
For instance, early in the morning I like my coffee dark and strong to wake me up to seize the day.
In the middle of the morning or perhaps early in the afternoon when I don’t want tea, I like my coffee milky and sweet – made with the flavour of the South.
Ordering and delivery
I ordered the coffee online on the 5th of November.It was a seamless transaction. I didn’t have to jump hoops to figure out the site. And I could easily access the pop ups that gave more details about each coffee,The coffee was delivered in three days in a no frills package that immediately won my approval. I hate excess packaging and frou-frou that needlessly add to the cost of the product.
The seven flavours sent to me were Parama – the flagship blend designed by the sought after coffee guru Sunalini Menon, Aromatique – 100% Single origin luxury Arabic beans, Sunkissed– Sundried pulp for buttery fruitiness , Sattva – 100% single origin Arabica, Deep Bliss – Tall dark and handsome, Cafe Chic – South Indian Chicory Blend and Clouds in my Coffee – Exotic and rare Monsooned Malabar
I had the option of opening each packet at one time and trying out the coffees at the same time . This made the most sense, but me being me , I preferred to try each coffee one at a time. This was largely to preserve the freshness of each packet.

Hubby Dear too got into the spirit of things and actually began to enjoy the game.
Alas, the coffees got over and I am now on to my next trial – Barista from the Indian Bean Co.
