No time for coffee with no soul | Ambros Coffee Review
You know those "OMG, I can't believe this happened!" moments? I believe that when I am on the right path, synchronicities and meaningful coincidences occur that help to confirm that I have made the right choices and I am exactly where I need to be. Some people call it serendipity (my favorite word and movie BTW! ) It is very normal to question your career, romantic or personal goals, especially now with so much time to introspect. Then that little something happens that gives you a nudge of faith to keep going. Well, this was my nudge last week.
Remember when I did that PSL giveaway with VioletJay for Thanksgiving?🍂 The winner of the contest was the lovely Mary, whose boyfriend is Tony... who is cousins with Joe from RDP (just kidding lol). Well TONY is also the owner of Ambros coffee. This one little action opened a door and led me to meet two new people and discover their story about Ambros coffee, a passion project. I have so much admiration for this proudly Montreal start-up! They are full of soul and the same passion that made me fall in love with coffee culture in the first place. Tony also kindly delivered me this bag of coffee to try... so I am SOLD.
OH BTW, the branding is on point, just look at these sketches 🤩! The Mexico coffee blend was delightful, full bodied, organic, with subtle fruity hints. It gave me the energy to write this blog in less than 30 mins!
I will leave the descriptors to the expert. Here are the coffee details from @ambroscoffee. Or support your local bean dealer and order a bag online. You can find them on the shelves of Cordova café or Shaugnessy café as well! Ps. They have super cute merchhhhhh, I want all the mugs.
Red 5 Diciembre
The Red 5 is [Ambros Coffee] first certified organic coffee from beautiful Mexico, the world’s largest organic coffee producer. Organic growth emphasizes sustainable farming, soil health, and a range of beneficial effects for the surrounding ecosystem. It was an important step for [them] to bring in coffee from a producer like Red 5 Diciembre, who is dedicated to having a positive social and environmental impact, and Mexico, a country with a rich coffee-producing heritage.
A subtly fruity, fudgy cup, with dessert notes and potential hints of chocolate-covered cherries, pomegranate, raspberry fudge, and almond. Expect a round body that will work well with any pour-over method, and its fudginess will make for a luscious espresso.
Producer: Red Cafecultores 5 de Diciembre
Region: La Cañada, Oaxaca
Altitude: 1750 masl
Varietal: Typica, Bourbon, Caturra, Mundo Novo
These are words to live by, there is no time for coffee with no soul.
I put the stickers on my plants cause... they are part of my soul.🌱
