New Brews: Brooklyn Bean Roastery and Cake Boss

Standard

My little Bunn has been working on overdrive today. I know I live in Canada and it is, after all, winter, but come on…there are only so many Extreme Cold Weather Alerts a girl can take!

Having said that, these frigid days are the perfect excuse to have multiple coffees and today, I tried 2 new ones!

The first is Hazelnut flavored coffee from Brooklyn Bean Roastery.

I’m a sucker for anything Hazelnut flavored so I knew I had to give this one a try. In comparison to the Folgers Hazelnut, which I’ve already bought 2 boxes of, this one had a lighter nutty flavor, not as pronounced as the Folgers K-cup, but I still liked it. Next time, I’m going to use the “PULSE” option on the Bunn to see if that makes much of a difference.

When compared to the Mocha Swirl from Folgers I’d say it is more mellow, whereas the Folgers instantly reminds me of those booze-filled chocolates that come out around Christmas, aka. a little more decadent.

I did use the PULSE option on the Bunn for this cup and I think it nicely enhanced the chocolate flavor without making it taste bitter.
