Leave it to Erik Karlsson to bring two of my favourite things together – hockey and yummyness 🙂 The former Norris Trophy winning hockey player is involved in a couple of charities including the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa. He’s recently teamed up with a local fair trade coffee company to create EK#65 blend coffee with $2 from each purchase going to the Boys and Girls Club. According to Bridgehead:
EK #65 blend is a dark blend of Nicaraguan, Harrar, and Honduran coffees. Flavours: Bittersweet ~ Dark Caramel ~ Stone Fruit. It is a dark balanced blend that takes the best of two roast profiles to deliver a coffee that is sweet, complex and full-flavoured. The cup begins with sweet stone fruit and dark caramel that turns to a long smoky, roasted malt finish.
I’m in no way a coffee connoiseur so I’ll take their word for it. I’ve been drinking it for the past few days and I love it. Unlike some other coffees I’ve tried, I find this one is very smooth and doesn’t have a bitter aftertaste or leave your tongue feeling like sandpaper afterwards. I encourage everyone to give it a try. For those outside the Ottawa area or in the US they also ship within Canada and the US.
