Currently, I’ve been drinking Starbucks’ Medium Colombia Blend. For those of you who have read my post about when I was trying their Blonde Veranda Blend, I wanted to continue with Starbucks and try one of their medium roasts as well.
This is obviously a little darker, but it has more of a bitter aftertaste. I like it though because it goes down very smoothly but also has a strong, lingering taste on my tongue. Supposedly, this roast is “balanced and nutty”, and though I can see the balanced part—it’s not over-the-top with flavor but I can still taste the bean—I cannot taste any traces of a nuttiness. I want to try another medium roast from Starbucks and then maybe move on to their dark roast before exploring some international flavors. I’ll be going to Paris for a study abroad this fall semester (!) so I’m sure I’ll be able to experiment with many flavors of coffee there.
