San Diego Coffee: Dutch Chocolate

My sister gifted me a Bodum French Press set for Christmas that has a coffee bean grinder and hot water boiler. Now I’m excited to explore the world of coffee beans. My first bag was San Diego Coffee’s “Dutch Chocolate” flavour, that I ordered on Amazon. It’s a Medium Roast of 100% Arabica beans. Though…

Savanna Dry 

I recently picked up some Savanna Dry Cider from the LCBO. I love ciders and I always get excited when there are ones I haven’t seen in stock. Made in Belgium, the Dry cider is not sweet, it is appropriately tart and crisp. It is 5% alcohol, so not too strong and something refreshing to…

County Cider

This County Cider is sold in what looks like a pop bottle. It’s a dry cider, a lot like the pear one that I tried a few posts back. It’s crisp but not as apple-tasting as I would have expected. At 6.5% though, I think I will continue drinking it until Stephen Harper is not Prime…
