Everyday Coffee in the City - Tantalizing Turkish by Philz Coffee

Philz Coffee - Tantalizing Turkey bagMijo was out of the country, coincidentally, it was also the same time I ran out of coffee.  Since I was going to drink the coffee alone for the next three weeks, I got a little creative.

I tried a coffee blend called Tantalizing Turkish by Philz Coffee. For the last three weeks, I was enjoying the goodness of this full bodied coffee. I like this coffee.

Philz Coffee is everywhere in the city. Their location at the Hyatt Hotel on Market St. is the one I've been to the most because it is close to our downtown office. This is where I tried for several times their Tantalizing Turkish blend and I remember making a mental note that someday I'll buy a bag of this coffee so that I'd enjoy the coffee at home.

I finally brough home a bag of their Tantalizing Turkish blend last week. I opened the bag and the heady aroma quickly filled the air. The house started to smell like a coffee shop. I always check out the beans and appreciate the color and quality.

My first cup was a coarse drip. In the Philz Coffee stores cardamom is added to a cup of Tantalizing Turkish. Even though I have ground cardomom at home, I decided not to add it so that I can fully taste the flavor of this coffee.

Look at the foam this coffee makes. I am always fascinated looking at the coffee brewing process of my Mocha Master coffee maker. My first cup was nothing short of awesome. The coffee is full bodied and I was able to taste the hints of maple, bark and earthy flavors. This has been the coffee that I have been bringing with me every morning when I commute to work.

My next plan was the pairing. I paired it with my favorite onion bagels from Noah's Bagels.

Last weekend, I planned to make the coffee using my French Press. The coffee got even more full bodied when drank alone and even better when paired.

I paired my Frech pressed cup with an onion bagel from Noah's and ate outside the house in the garden. Perfect!

Next, I paired the coffee with my favorite ensaimadas from Mary Grace Cafe.  Mijo brought them from his trip to Manila. Delicious!

I paired the coffee with Philippine goodies from the province of Bicol. The cookies were made with a nut from that province called Pili nuts. The earthy qualities of the coffee is even more hightened with the pairing.

This morning, I paired it with a simple egg scramble and orange juice. Great breakfast.
