The acid test for any food is whether your dog, if you have a dog, will lick your fingers and/or plate after eating something like this.  I am glad to say a dog will lick your fingers, plate, mustache, lips, . . . – well let’s just stop here in the list of what your dog may lick.

Bali Blue Moon Whole Bean Coffee – Food Review – Trader Joe’s


TJ_BaliBlueMoonCoffeeIf you’re the only coffee drinker in the house, stick your nose in the can for about 10 seconds each morning for a pleasant wake up.  This is one of the best smelling coffees.  There’s a brief hint of chocolate when first opened.  After that there’s a very nice aroma that actually smells like coffee and not burnt toast.  That aroma continues with each opening until the can is emptied.
