  • Best Cup Yet, for me.

    This morning I went back to a brand of coffee beans that I started using in 1965.

    The company is called M. E. Swing. Swing is a local company based in Alexandria Virginia , which has been in the coffee and tea importing and roasting business since 1916. I love the fact that they've been able to hold out against the big conglomerates.

    I have posted a photo of the empty bag from Swings that I used today. It is a medium roast espresso , which looking at it, seems to have Ethiopian and some Sumatran, based on flavor and body.

    It is very fruity and with a chocolate aftertaste that stays with you forever.

    When I started going to Swing in 1965, they were located on E Street N. W. in Washington DC. Urban renewal has moved them into the suburbs.

    They have a very simple website. Once again, the company is M. E. Swing.
