Cuppa Coffee Critics
My daughter says my son-in-law, Ed is a coffee snob...um... I mean connoisseur. He likes only a couple of different kinds of Kona coffee. One brand he likes is Lion 100% Kona. I can't remember what the other brand is and I don't think he remembers either since Lion is the only one we bring him. He made that decision after we once brought 6-7 different brands for him to try. Ed is also a regular Starbucks customer that Art feels is rarely fresh because he orders decaf which has usually been sitting too long and has a burnt flavor... not that he's particular, mind you.
This summer, Art admitted to serving Ed a mixture of different coffees and he didn't seem to notice. I'm thinking that if Ed did notice, he just didn't say so.
For our family get-togethers, Art serves a mixture of Dunkin' Donuts coffee with 100% Kona. When my aunts were here the last time they said Art's coffees were always fabulous. Art says he thinks the Dunkin' Donuts coffee is very good and he does like his coffee... BLACK. I like mine as mocha (1/3 chocolate milk) so he says my opinion doesn't count. (He meant it's not as accurate.)
One of my cousins swears by Costco Kona coffee which Art says is OK. I find it all so humorous.
