Restaurant Review: Bruxie Coffee Tasting for The Bold Blend!

Lil Oishi and I went to the Costa Mesa location of Bruxie to try their new custom crafted coffee, The Bold Blend! Would it be Bold enough to stand up to the Bruxie name? Well, we were here to find out!

The coffee blend is the brainchild of Bruxie partners Dean Simor and Kelly Mullarney. They set out to create a coffee that could stand up and compliment the menu. They found a local roaster who blended their 100% fair trade coffee beans. The blend is made up of the four origin coffee beans of Sumatra, Brazil, Ethipoia and Costa Rica.  
Taking my first sip of The Bold Blend and I instantly tasted the boldness of the flavors. A rich, robust coffee with a smooth finish. I love strong coffee and immediately needed more.

Lil Oishi and I shared the first cup of coffee with an egg and sausage breakfast waffle. The strong flavors of the coffee blended perfectly with this waffle sandwich.
I also got to pair the coffee with Bruxie's prosciutto and gruyere as well as their smoked salmon lox and dill cream cheese. The strong flavors in both of these waffles once again paired perfectly with the equally strong flavor of the coffee.
As I stood here with both Dean and Kelly, I found it hard to believe that I was there on opening day of their first Bruxie location in Orange in November of 2010. That was pretty much my first food review! How far everyone has come since then!
Even my review vehicle, a 2014 Kia Optima needed some coffee!

Come and try this fantastic coffee blend for yourself with a waffle or two! I cannot wait to be back for more!
