his Tannins and Terpenes pairing takes a turn away from our (often) alcoholic options to bring you the breakfast of champions – where a cup of Tailored Coffee Intro Blend balances beautifully with Elbe’s Edibles Lemon and Triple Chocolate Cakeballs, bringing out the best in each other and your day. Tailored Coffee is a micro-roastery in Eugene that caters to craft caffeine connoisseurs. Their roasting process focuses on fine-tuning clarity and sweetness, something this critic claims that they have conquered. A lightto-medium roast on the Intro Blend beans lets their fruitiness shine through, while bringing out the gentle toasted chocolate notes. Brew time brings an explosive aroma: a bold bouquet of sweet citrus fruit, toasted cashew and warm cocoa. Sinking into the first sip offers silky chocolate notes along with lemon that lingers on the tongue. This blend brings a flavor so fine that you may even want to savor it without the addition of sugar or cream. Portland edible producers Elbe’s are known for an array of recreational and medically-dosed confections. In a market full of extract infused treats, they’ve carved out a niche providing “full-spectrum whole-bud cannabutter” products. Their latest collaboration utilizes indoor flower from the folks at DogHouse. With Tailored Coffee’s bright beverage in hand, we opted for Elbe’s Lemon and Triple Chocolate Cakeballs, goodies that pack approximately 15mg of THC per piece. These luscious little morsels are masterfully crafted, with a firm outer shell and silky-soft cake interior. The Lemon variety lays out zesty citrus notes and a delicate buttercream flavor, while their Triple Chocolate flavor dives into the bolder essence of the cocoa bean. Together, Tailored Coffee and Elbe’s Edibles present the perfect morning pairing or flavorful afternoon escape from your day. Pour yourself a pipinghot cup of Intro Blend, grab some Cakeballs, and enjoy this truly exquisite experience for yourself.
