Bulletproof Minipresso: The Mentalist

 

We're a few weeks into our Bulletproof adventure, here's what Beth and George had to say about The Mentalist.

 

Beans: 100% Arabica

 

Before the Brew: Out of the three Bulletproof coffees, the Mentalist beans have the strongest, boldest scent. That being said, it’s difficult to pinpoint a specific aromatic note – but it certainly smells familiar, like a childhood memory. At times we caught the aroma of fresh, just-washed whole blueberries, while the next minute, we noticed a hint of spice, and smoked wood chips after that.

 

Minipresso Tasting: Our espresso shots had an herbal tea-like quality, in that they were light-bodied without being watery. For such a bold-scented bean, we took great pleasure in the surprisingly delicate tastes of cherry and cinnamon. We agreed that we’d like to try it again in the summer, chilled over ice.
