Blue Mountain Coffee...huh?

Blue Mountain Coffee

I stopped at The Coffee Connoisseur today for a quick breather, and noticed all the varieties of coffee types on their menu, most of which were about S$6 (US$3.50). But there was one at the top priced at S$10 (US$5.90) called Blue Mountain, which is allegedly some of the best in the world. Now, I'm not a coffee drinker, but if this stuff commanded this much of a premium, I had to give it a try to see what all the fuss was about.

I was so disappointed. I was expecting some very rich or exotic taste, and instead I got the opposite. This was so bland and weak ("delicate" would be a nice euphemism) that it could have been any kind of coffee that had been heavily watered down for all I knew. Like I said, I'm not a coffee drinker, so I'm not exactly any authority on this, but this was so boring that I simply stopped drinking the rest of it. Oh well...at least I can say that I tried it.

you do know a certain premium type of coffee actually comes from shit of a kind of animal that eats the coffee beans ... I'm not sure if its blue mountain though :>

i had the best blue mountain coffee at a cafe in HongKong... and like you, when I tried TCC's Blue Mountain coffee, I was extremely disgusted with it as that is not the real thing! Blue Mountain is really much better than that! Oh and Coffee Club's blue mountain is horrible as well.
