Heather's USBC Blend

Shortly before the winner was announced at the World Barista Championship I had placed and order for a pound of Heather's blend that she used to win the USBC. If I was smart I should have waited a bit and ordered the blend she used at the WBC. But now to the point, it arrived today and as any good coffee geek I quickly ripped open the FedEx package and made sure the espresso machine was on and warmed up. Upon opening the bag I was met with a very pleasant aroma that just made the taste buds start watering. I measured out enough for a double espresso and tossed it in the grinder, pre-warmed my espresso cup, dosed, tamped and pulled a great double. The creama was amazing and the bouquet was great as I waited for the shot to pull. The shot has a nice citrus note and a very elegant berry note. Oh this is going to be a good pound of beans... I will have to try it in a cappuccino to see how it works with milk, which I am sure will be great as well.

For what it's worth.
