While making my pot of coffee this morning I chuckled a bit. Scoop after scoop I was making my coffee just the way I love it. DARK. I even set my brew quality to STRONG. I love my coffee with a rich bold flavor, just the way Starbucks makes their regular blend. Matter of fact, we buy our coffee (extra bold) from Starbucks and/or World Market just to get it the way we like it.
7 years ago, though, my opinions were way different. If you would have given me a cup of rich bold flavored coffee, I would have curled my lips and thought it tasted burnt. That 7 some years ago, I was just entering into a business lease in downtown Rochester, MI. My office happened to be right across the street from America’s favorite coffee house, Starbucks.
