I would like to say that I’m a coffee connoisseur but I’m not. I drink coffee and my choices are either based on my level laziness or on availability of the coffee. Of course, cost is a factor too (it has to be a really good cup of coffee before I spend obnoxious amount of money on it). I often bring coffee to work in a travel mug because I can’t stand to wait in line at the coffee shop. It feels like a complete waste of time. On the days that I do buy coffee, I’ll opt for whatever is nearby and cost effective.
A long while back, I received this bag of medium roast coffee from the good folks at Camino. There is so much I love about this coffee. I love that it’s fair trade and it’s organic. It’s also incredibly easy to drink. I mean, what more could you want in coffee?
I brewed the coffee using a simple single cup coffee filter set up. Yep, it was easy.
A couple of spoons of the Camino Fair Trade Organic Medium Roast coffee, some boiling hot water, and boom, hot coffee ready to be enjoyed.
Given that I’m not a coffee expert, I don’t know how best to describe the Camino Fair Trade Organic Medium Roast coffee. I can only tell you that it tasted great. It was smooth and easy. It’s definitely not bland but it’s not bitter either. I drank it this weekend but I could easily drink this any day of the week.
It really is that simple.
Then again, that’s perhaps downplaying the significance of Camino’s Fair Trade Organic Medium Roast coffee. For one, how many companies can claim to offer fair trade and organic coffee? Beyond the coffee itself, there are social factors to consider too.
Do I like the Camino Fair Trade Organic Medium Roast coffee? Absolutely. Does it probably cost a bit more than your average roast? Maybe, maybe not because I think it depends on what you compare it to. It’s certainly more cost effective to make your own coffee to go with the Camino Fair Trade Organic Medium Roast coffee than it is to buy a cup from your local coffee shop. While it may take more time to brew it up at home, you’re also skipping the long line up at the store.
Definitely something to think about.
