Happy Martin Luther King Day and maybe you were fortunate enough to get the day off from work or school.
Or maybe you were fortunate to pour another cup of this coffee, Cafe Bustelo, which is what I did earlier.
It’s my latest coffee find and I am loving
how it puts hair on my chest how packed with flavor it is. Very full-bodied and intense, which is preferred for me and the only way I like coffee.
Brown-tinged water that is called coffee and served on airplanes or the free “coffee” that’s sometimes served in office waiting rooms is simply colored water, not really coffee.
If you’re the type of person who likes a lighter, more mellow, “breakfast blend” middle-of-the-road type of coffee, this isn’t that.
It’s bold and I poured a cup
or two, which went down so easily on this gloomy, overcast and very lackluster Monday.
A perfect coffee-slurping day.
The price is right, too. I got it at my local Ralph’s grocery store for less than $4 dollars for a 10-ounce can, or you can order it.
I have been swapping it in place of my other daily go-to favorite coffee, Trader Joe’s Dark Sumatra, which is currently $5.99 for a 12 ounce can.
The Sumatra went up in price about six months ago after the worldwide coffee bean shortage but still very affordable and a fantastic coffee.
I have nothing but praise for most of TJ’s coffees, especially considering the price; you can’t beat it.
I have a coffee reviews post where I’ve mentioned dozens of coffees:
From the more expensive and fancy…
to the more humdrum.
I love coffee in all forms…
With extra Bailey’s non-alcoholic coffee creamer and that stuff is a dead ringer for the alcoholic version of Baileys. If you like Baileys, but don’t want to pour booze in your coffee on Monday morning, I highly recommend the creamer. Or course, use real Baileys in your morning coffee if you’re looking to spruce up your day.
I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can chug Vanilla Iced Coffee without shivering for an hour or two afterward.
Pumpkin Spice Lattes were a favorite in the fall.
…And just drinking my ‘joe with a splash of half and half is my usual way.
Coffee is best used to wash down a Magic Eight bar.
Or a No Bake Vanilla Cake Batter Chocolate Truffle because cake (batter) + chocolate + coffee just go together.
Do you drink coffee? Tea?
Do you have a favorite kind or brand?
I hope your week is off to a good start!
