Revelator: Petunias

Revelator Coffee Company is based in Birmingham, Alabama. The Petunias blend has to be one of my favourites so far! It has notes of cherry and chocolate and it's perfectly balanced with a little bit of cream. I will definitely need to add this one to my queue again! 

Fun Fact: Revelator created a program for baristas entering the competition circuit that sponsored five new talents in its first year.

Galaxy and Black Nails

I'm such a fan of dark nails year round. I had some fun adding some black tips to this holographic base coat by OPI!

Augie's Coffee: House Blend

Our latest and greatest Trade order is from Augie's Coffee in Redlands California. It's a family owned roastery by father-son duo Andy and Austin Amento and has been operational since 2009.

This is an excellent brew and is perfectly balanced with a bit of cream. It's medium bodied with traditional base hints of sweet vanilla and ripe fruit. It's another perfectly "classic" coffee in my opinion and I look forward to waking up in the morning to brew this!!

Fun Fact: in 2016, co-owner Austin Amento won the US Cup Tasters Championship and barista Blair Smith placed fourth at the US Brewers Cup.
