New Tastes // mesquite bean coffee


Last Saturday, at our town's annual Fiesta de la Paloma ( festival of the dove ), I bought a new kind of "coffee". The bean-like pods which grow on the mesquite tree are harvested, roasted, and ground for some Texas style coffee! 


It definitely doesn't have your regular coffee flavor, but rather a strong, woodsy taste that took me back to sitting around a campfire in northern Michigan during our camping trip last summer.


It was also neat to drink coffee that grew locally and gave me a feeling of loyalty since it came from my home state instead of Arabia or some other foreign country!


I like it best with a dash of almond milk.

Do you enjoy any coffee substitutes?

  2. This sounds interesting, but I'm afraid I've become a coffee snob...I wonder if I could actually drink it?
