Having finished our store-bought coffee yesterday, this morning was day one on our adventure of taste-testing the different freshly-roasted blends included in our Ugly Mug starter pack.
Blend number one for us is Ugly Mug’s signature smooth, medium roast called Saving Grace. It truly is a smooth blend, without a hint of the bitterness so many of the popular designer coffees leave me with. Medium roast does not, however, mean medium flavor; I found Saving Grace to be a rich tasting cup of coffee, even to the point of using less half-and-half than usual on my second cup. My hubby, a cop to whom all coffees fall into two categories – I like it or I don’t like it – told me right away this morning that he likes it.
Me? I give it 3 empty mugs.
