Obama Blend coffee: we'll drink to that


For the Obama-lover who already has everything--the lawn sign, the bumper sticker, the t-shirt, the coffee mug, the underwear (o...m...g...)--a St. Paul coffee shop is offering a new custom blend.

The Bean Factory's Obama Blend combines select Kona coffee from Hawaii and Estate AA from Kenya--it's available brewed at the shop or in bags of freshly roasted beans. I haven't tried it yet but owner Steve VandeWater describes Obama Blend as "noble, not tart, but mellow and with great aroma."
