By now, the more adventurous among you have tried at least one of the Starbucks Reserve offerings, perhaps based on my recommendation in the last post. I imagine you’ve come away with the same ashen taste in your mouth that I did. To restore a bit of color to those cheeks, may I suggest trying some of this DEA harissa?

It is a blunt weapon. It is not homemade – nobody’s mother slaved away for hours, carefully assembling, grinding, and stirring. DEA harissa comes to us from France in a tube, and is probably made at an industrial plant somewhere. At $2.49, it is infinitely more interesting than that ‘100% Kona’, and costs about $0.50 less. Use the spare change to feed the meter while you order yourself another merguez sandwich slathered with this stuff. Enjoy.
