New Coffee & The Weekend
I hope you had a nice weekend.
It involved sampling some of the new-to-me coffee I picked up from TJ’s
I am normally partial to Dark Sumatra for my everyday coffee but the Joe’s Dark is a nice change.
I love coffee so much.
Maybe I should get this
Except the nicotine part is not applicable and lately I consume very little alcohol. But I make up for it with caffeine consumption.
The Joe’s is bold and a nice dark roast (not a fan of medium or lighter roasts), but also sweeter than the Dark Sumatra.
Maybe some people would call this “less acidic”.
Their prices are so.much.lower than retail prices.
I go through lots of stevia and I’d be in the poorhouse if it wasn’t for iHerb
a half pot of coffee one cup of coffee on Sunday I did other fun things like:
Spent time with my family
Walked around the Farmer’s Market
Enjoyed the fresh air, 72F temps, and sunny, clear skies
I had to work but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the weather as much as possible and getting in some nice runs and yoga at home.
I also enjoyed some No Bake Peanut Butter Biscoff Cookie Dough Bites
Washed down with some coffee, they were mmmm, good. They hit the spot for me. And they hit this spot too.

1. What’s your favorite coffee (or tea)?
See my Coffee Reviews Post for my thoughts on many different types and brands of coffee but for the price, quality, and availability (for me because I have a TJ’s around the corner), I think TJ’s has awesome coffee.
My faves of theirs are Dark Sumatra and if I stray from that the Organic/Fair Trade French Roast in a can (not the regular French Roast)
Or the gray plastic wrapper/in a bag French Roast (pre-ground) is pretty decent for the money.
Cafe Pajaro I’ve tried. So-so.
Bolivian (Katie tells me I should try it)
2. Are you a fan of Pumpkin-flavored coffee?
I am not a pumpkin girl overall, but I have to say, all the talk of Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes in the sphere makes me want one.
For the price of one, singular, latte I could buy almost a whole can of coffee and drink about 200 cups of coffee at home!
i.e. One latte = $4 (approximately) and a One Can of coffee = $4.99
So I’m holding out. For now.
