It's back today! My favorite Coffee: The beloved Casi Cielo Guatemalan coffee from Starbucks. Casi Cielo is a seasonal blend created by Starbucks and some of the chefs of the famous restaurant, Canlis. C.C. was originally made for some of the most exclusive, fine-dinning restaurants in Seattle. It wasn't until a couple years ago that it was finally featured and sold at most Starbucks stores.
And if you're anything like me, every January-February, I store bags of Casi like little acorns in my face to get me through the spring months.
The only problem is, even though the bags are not open, coffee is at it's prime 3-5 days after it's been roasted. Furthermore, after two-weeks the flavor wanes exponentially. And not to rag on Starbucks, because I love it like it's my own adopted Asian child, but their coffee usually doesn't arrive into one of their distributors until two weeks after roasting. Yikes!
So the best thing for everyone is to just buy a bag a week-- which is the consumption of coffee for any normal human -- just enjoy it while it's out for these two months.
