I love coffee (despite espousing last month about what life would be like with out it). SO, when Subtle Earth gave me the opportunity to try their organic medium-dark roast blend by sending me a bag, I was all for it!
I drink at least two cups of coffee every morning. The silky smooth rich flavor that comes from a French press is absolutely delightful, and arguably the best way to pull the flavor from coffee. I loved my French press. I love coffee.
Know what else I love? The automatic brewing feature on my electric drip coffee maker.
This is the second electric coffee maker I’ve owned since that fateful, panic-inducing day two years ago when I dropped my beloved French press into the sink and shattered it. INTO SEVERAL LARGE SHARDS OF GLASS AT 6 A.M.
I did, however, survive. And, my husband bought me a replacement brewer later that day (so nice of him), with a fancy auto-brew feature that I got used to real quick. There’s really nothing better than rolling out of bed to a freshly brewed pot of coffee, especially the Subtle Earth Organic Coffee I’ve been enjoying for the past few weeks.
The medium-dark roast arrived in mid-February, in probably the largest coffee bag I’ve ever seen. The aroma was rich and deep, and I knew it was going to brew an excellent couple of cups of coffee.
And, yes it did.
I finished my cup of coffee off with a splash of whole milk, but that’s it. I’m a fan; true story.

Disclosure: Subtle Earth Organic Coffee sent me a bag of their certified organic medium-dark roast coffee in exchange for an honest review. There was no other compensation. The words and opinions are my own!
