Our First Blind Coffee Tasting on 1/21/2017 @ The Quarry Ponds Center in Granite Bay, CA.
We are just a small group of coffee lovers who like to try new coffee beans. Coffee is subjective. 
The results were merely our personal opinions and preferences.

We had 8 whole coffee beans: Starbucks Sumatra, Peet's Garuda Blend, Black Oak Gedeb Lot 002, Maui Island Coffee Blend, Verve Holiday Blend, Allegro Ethiopia Kochere, and the least expensive No Name Coffee.

1st Place: Verve Holiday Blend
2nd Place: Allegro Ethiopia Kochere
3rd Place: Maui Island Coffee Blend

All eight coffee beans are of course quality beans including the No Name Coffee.
Ans surprisingly the No Name Coffee was 4th place.

Congratulations to all!

The Story Behind the Soup

Dmitry Tursunov is a Russian ATP tennis player, for whom I would frequently prepare meals.  One day, he asked for a very specific type of Asian style soup.  Because I wasn't familiar with what he was asking for, he told me everything that it needed.  He described the exact vegetables and the dominant coconut flavor.  Since he introduced me to it, I decided to name it after him: Dmitry's Chicken Coconut Soup.

Bon appétit!
