Notes of Cinnamon
PROUDLY HANDCRAFTED IN THE USA
Admittedly I am a gas station coffee guy, not a connoisseur. But when I got ahold of Smooth Operator I could tell it was extra special. I really like the subtle cinnamon flavor/aroma and I honestly look forward to making this stuff every time.
I'm selective with cinnamon because I'm not the biggest fan, but this coffee tastes incredible! It's intriguing how the cinnamon perfectly blends into the coffee. It not overpowering at all. It's definitely smooth and tasty, and my favorite!
This blend is so good! Perfect amount of cinnamon.
First off, the owner of this company is a stand up guy and only means well and stands behind good beliefs. Second, this coffee is awesome! The notes of cinnamon that you get from it, make it an awesome coffee to brew a pot of on a cool morning and sit on the porch and sip away. Don’t hesitate, just buy it already!
Full disclosure; I was given this sample of Smooth Operator to review on my YouTube channel. At that time I thought it was a great coffee, though a tad bitter. I shelved it for a week or so and then decided to try it again with a lower brew temperature. I reduced my brew temp from 210F down to 195F. OMG, what a difference it made. This time it was not astringent or bitter. Smooth as silk with a hint of cinnamon. I drank it straight and it was awesome. Then I brewed a second cup and added some heavy cream and sugar. This seemed to bring out the cinnamon flavor a little better. So, whether you drink your coffee black or with cream and sugar, this is a wonderful and smooth coffee. Just play with your grind and temps so that you don't overextract it and you will be very happy with this coffee. Thanks Aaron! Smooth Operator Rocks!
