We opened one of the bags of coffee we brought home with us from our trip to Peerless Coffee and Tea a few weeks ago. It is great drank alone or paired with food.
We paired them with both savory breakfasts and sweet snacks and the coffee tasted so good. We really loved this medium roast coffee.
This bag is one of the three bags of coffee that we bought from Peerless a few weeks ago. We were finishing another good coffee before we opened this one. Opening a bag of coffee is like opening a gift.
Definitely smoky. As soon as I opened the bag, the aroma escaped and filled the entire kitchen. I love it when that happens. The beans are dark and oily.
Look at those shiny dark beans. They fill up the jar of my Kitchen Aid coffee grinder. I like acidic coffee. Mijo does not. This coffee has just the right amount of acidity, spicyness and chocolate finish. It is a balanced coffee that's why it works out for both Mijo and I.
For this pairing, I only tried this coffee using drip with medium/course grind. It tasted great with both savory and sweet pairings.
We paired in with weekend homemade breakfasts with spicy salsa condiment.
With sweet snacks.
With Kozlowski Farms apple and blueberry pie.
I recently discovered this bakery called Copenhagen Bakery and Cafe which is located in Burlingame, a city a few miles south of San Francisco. I bought some goodies from this store and paired it with the coffee.
All in all, Peerless Coffee and Tea's Guatemala Antigua Dark is a great coffee that can be paired with savory and sweet snacks.
