It’s funny how your tastebuds change as you get older isn’t it? I am tending to agree more and more with myself that our tastes change according to what our bodies need. Before becoming a Mum I couldn’t stick the taste of coffee, I was a tea drinker through and through but then the sleepless nights kicked in and constantly being on the go began to take it’s toll and before I knew it I was reaching for a jar of coffee when I was trudging bleary-eyed down the supermarket aisle. Now when I wake up in the mornings or before I sit down to work I look forward to my cup of coffee.
My first experience of Starbucks came along at Peterborough Train Station as we have a Starbucks on Platform 1. When travelling anywhere by train I always factor in arriving early so that I can grab myself a coffee fix to enjoy on the train and whilst waiting for my coffee to arrive I ‘people watch’ or ‘listen’ moreover to their orders of a ‘skinny half caff soy latte’ or whatever it is, I get so confused just watching, I’m make a rubbish Barista!!!
From the land of ancient legends comes a single-origin coffee as lush as its birthplace.
I’ve been hearing good things about a new coffee to arrive at Starbucks Store and it sounds like it’s right up my street. The Peru Origin Espresso is a medium roast whole bean which is smooth and rich with a herbal and soft spice taste. I bet you want one right now don’t you?! I know I do (although it is 10.45pm as I write this so perhaps not the best idea – it will have to wait for tomorrow).
Once the heart of the Inca Empire, the lush landscape of Peru is now home to smallholder coffee farms. On the slopes of the Andes, arabica beans thrive in partnership with the sun, rain, shade tree canopies and rich soil. Reserving only high-quality single-origin beans gives us this round coffee with medium body, soft acidity and herbal notes for outstanding last in cup.
Go on, treat yourself, you know you want to . . .
