Dancing Moon Coffee Review
I received the mentioned products in this post in exchange for an honest review. The opinions contained within this review as mine and may vary from the opinions of others.
About Dancing Moon Coffee: In each of the world’s great coffee regions there are only a handful of coffees that are truly extraordinary. Delicious complex coffees that are treasured above all others. Coffees that have to be tasted to be believed. These are the remarkable coffees that Dancing Moon has sought out. These are The Legendary Coffees of Dancing Moon.
What We Thought: I will begin this review by saying I have never ground my own coffee beans, so I thought this process was really unique and fun. I am so used to going to the store, picking out a pre-ground coffee and bringing it home. This experience was not only fun but quite educational for me as well.
I received the Sumatra Mandheling version of Dancing Moon Coffee to review. I had never tried Sumatra coffee before and went right to the Dancing Moon website to learn more about it. Here is a snippet of what I found:
Once believed to be lost in the jungles of Sumatra, this legendary coffee was finally rediscovered after 100 years of searching. Rescued from its hiding place in the jungle undergrowth, these ancient Arabica coffee trees were replanted in the Mandheling Province of West Sumatra. Full-bodied, strikingly earthy, and delightfully complex, Sumatra Mandheling is extremely high in antioxidants. Each delicious cup of this very special Mandheling gives you almost three times the antioxidant power of green tea.
Pictured above are the beans that I found upon opening the bag. Immediately I loved the aroma. I have always treasured the smell of coffee as it reminds me of my childhood memories of being at my Grandparents house. They always drank black coffee and my Grandma had it ground at a local supermarket. The smell of these beans reminded me of those times.
I immediately wanted to try and grind some with the provided grinder for my review. I will admit that I do not make coffee by the pot ever and actually do not own a coffee pot, but use a reusable cup for individual cops of coffee. I was prepared to make 2 cups, one for me and one for my husband.
The grinding process was smooth. I thought that it would be much harder but the machine literally did all of the work. When I opened it I immediately noticed that the aroma was so much better than even right out of the bag. It did not take long to have ground coffee and have it ready for my reusable cup.
The brewing process was the same as with any other coffee and I noticed that it was very rich smelling upon being brewed.
We both add milk and sugar to our coffee so we did the same with this and it tasted amazing. I am so impressed with Dancing Moon Coffee and their ability to give us the most quality product.
Bags containing 2 pounds of Dancing Moon Coffee can be found on Amazon.com.
Something else I love is that Dancing Moon Coffee gives back.
