Every week I will be tasting and talking about a bag of coffee that is offered on the Kansas City Coffee Collective’s website. This week’s bag of coffee beans is brought to you by The Roasterie, and its name is Autumn Harvest. Autumn Harvest tells you in no uncertain terms what you are getting when you start making it. The smell of this coffee is like snorting an entire candle into your nostrils. If someone could capture the smell of Thanksgiving dessert without all of the sweaty relatives, then Autumn Harvest just did. Just smelling this coffee will make you think of red and orange leaves gently blowing across a field; smelling it will make you feel like a sweater wearing a sweater wrapped in a blanket laying in a field of grass on a mildly cloudy day when the air is cold, but not the invasive cold of winter. Don’t worry though, the coffee’s taste does not suffer from tasting exactly like it smells. Which can happen with any coffee that has a smell which is great, but not something you’d want to drink (unless you want to drink dead oak and maple leaves, Thanksgiving, and sweaters). Instead, Autumn Harvest’s flavor and smell profiles blend perfectly to create a synergy between sniff and sip that will have you settling into the fall season faster than any amount of pumpkin spice.
