Bean: Svoboda Blend
Roaster: Dazbog Coffee Company
Rating
: 2 (barely) 

Despite my previous excitement for Dazbog coffee, this particular blend was a big disappointment. It was harsh, bitter and offered nothing of the “liberating mild, sweet blend of coffees” with a clean finish promised on the package. Of course, I didn’t have high hopes from the start. The bags had no roast date and a few bags even wore a light layer of dust. Here’s the clincher: the price tag was from “Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.” I’m not sure what the story is here, but my theory is that the airport franchise pulled some beans from from that store to stock their shelves when they first opened a few months back. Dazbog certainly shouldn’t let this kind of thing happen; it should enforce better standards of its franchisees. I probably should give this blend a “1” rating. However, there’s enough blame to go around and I’m a softie. I was the one foolish enough to buy beans at the airport! I’d like to think that this might be a better bean bought elsewhere so I’m giving it an optimistic “2.”
