Buckeye Beans & Herbs Buckeye Corn Bread

As Americans, we often say “as American as apple pie.” Perhaps what we should say is “as American as corn bread.” The earliest known recipe for apple pie comes from England and was written by none other than Geoffrey Chaucer, and apples themselves were actually brought to America by English settlers, primarily for the purpose of making cider. Corn, on the other hand, is indigenous to America, and corn and cornmeal have been used by Native Americans in many traditional dishes, including corn bread, for thousands of years.

When it comes to modern cornbread, there are two schools of thought, Southern and Northern. Whereas Southern corn bread is traditionally made with buttermilk or sour cream and little to no flour or sugar, Northern corn bread is traditionally made with whole milk and healthy helpings of both flour and sugar.

Now, to each there own, and there cannot be a wrong way to make corn bread—unless you manage to forget the cornmeal—but Northern corn bread is the preferred style of one local Washington company, Buckeye Beans & Herbs.

Fresh roasted and quickly delivered

The 3 for $35 deal can’t be beat. I always order the Espresso Huli which is the most aromatic blend in the group. My other current favorites are Ethiopia Kefauver Forest and Guatemala Trapichitos. Roasters Choice is too strong given the subtleties of the other choices. I’m enjoying working through the blends.

Clean cup with notes of pear, fast delivery

I had the Bitch Blend the other day at Biscuit Bitch and bought a bag of those beans and loved the flavor profile. Thought I would branch out and try another coffee from Seven, so tried the Costa Rica Micro-Lot. I ordered the coffee from the website and it was shipped the next day and arrived the day after that. I liked the coffee but would not order it again because the Bitch Blend was so much better than this one. The coffee's pear notes were strong and a good flavor but the tangerine and honey flavors were not noticeable. The thing I usually like about Costa Rican coffees is the sweet caramel/honey/molasses flavor but that flavor did not come through on this batch. The Bitch Blend, on the other hand, is one of the best coffees I've ever had and is all around delicious.

I've found my coffee!

On a search to find some whole bean decaf that was fresh and local, I stumbled upon Seven Coffee Roasters. So glad I did. The best decaf I've ever had! Thankfully I got on their website and was able to pick and choose from their other awesome roasts using the 3 for $35 deal on their website. The Bitch blend and the Roasters Choice along with another bag of their delicious decaf was delivered to my door within one day of the roast date stamped on each bag. Now that's what I call local and fresh! I will definitely be getting more coffee from them and I encourage you to check them out, especially if you live in Seattle and I live in West Seattle so I'm really close to where they roast! These beans are awesome!

So good!

This blend is so delicious and smooth. Perfect for pour over and French press.
