Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
Double the heart, double the fun. Heart Ethiopia Guji (for me) and Stereo Blend (for her). Both are very nice coffees. The Heart Roasters Guji is definitely somewhat typical Ethiopian heirloom, but it’s not quite as acidic as one might expect and more savory/herbal than the Counter Culture Idido or other Heart Ethiopian coffees I’ve tried. A more laid back coffee and less high strung, if you will. The Stereo Blend is very different. Much bigger, more chocolaty and syrupy, so probably perfect for the missus who likes her coffee like that.
I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
