Coffee for Change: Organic, Fair-Trade Tribute to the Chief

obama2.jpgI just received a triumphant, promising pound of “President’s Blend Coffee for Change,”  sent by a friend at Thanksgiving Coffee, a company based in Mendocino, CA, and connected to coffee communities around the world.

This particular bag boasts a three-part blend from East Africa and Indonesia, “mirroring Obama’s story and journey to the presidency.” I got the package today, in honor of last week’s inauguration, and won’t taste it till tomorrow, but the limited-edition bag describes the flavor as “rich with sweet berry notes, a deep heavy body, and lingering malty finish.”

Sounds riquísimo—may it live up to such a delicious promise … I think it will.
