Do you want a story? Ok.
“Once upon a time there was a beautiful young girl, whose stepmother always made her stay home with the baby. And the baby was a spoiled child, and he wanted everything for himself, and the young girl was practically a slave. But what no one knew was that the King of the Goblins had fallen in love with the girl, and he had given her certain powers. So one night, when the baby had been particularly cruel to her, she called on the goblins for help.
"Say your right words," the goblins said, "and we'll take the baby to the Goblin City and you will be free."
But the girl knew that the King of the Goblins would keep the baby in his castle forever and ever and ever and turn it into a goblin. So she suffered in silence. Until one night…”
Fit for a king … A goblin king! Just seriously good.
I was looking forward to this coffee and was not disappointed. It is amazing and definitely on my favorites list. I’ll be ordering more and trying other kinds.
I'm hesitant about buying gourmet coffees. I like my coffee simple, black, and most of the time, bitter. I've been let down by other gourmet offerings in the past, but gotdangit if this girl ain't loved her Goblin King ALL HER DANG LIFE. So the commercialism of the bag worked 100%, props for working my nostalgic fangirl neurons over, they love that stuff! (I even came back to buy the mug.) The bag is actually really nice and thick, it's got some beautiful graphics and some babysitter quoted on the back wants to tell you what sounds like a phenomenal story! There's no aroma leaking from it. But when you open the bag and take an unsophisticated goblin snort, you can definitely tell this is probably going to be something really special.
I was very surprised that I loved it immediately on the first sip. It was smooth - and definitely not very bitter, though it has a little goblin nip of citrus in it that gives me the desired result without causing me to grow hairy goblin ears at the same time. I tried to stretch the bag out for a while so that I could enjoy it longer, but alas, goblins have very poor self-control!
I guess that means I'm just going to have to buy another!
