A little less than a year ago I decided that I wanted to give up drinking coffee every morning. There was no real reason why. I think it was an effort to start living more healthy, to not drink calories (save them for my true love, the food) and not feel like a slave to the caffeine. I began the very slow weaning process but a few days in, something hit me. I actually really enjoy coffee and the experience of drinking it. From then on, I decided to only drink what I loved and savor my time with my morning cup of joe (which is sometimes the only time I sit down all day). I’m not a fan of flavored coffees, which if you own a single cup brewer (I LOVE my Keurig!) you know there are tons of super sweet flavored options on the market. But I am always on the lookout for the brands I know and trust in single serve form.
While it may seem like Peet’s is coming late to the single serve coffee party, I really respect a company that doesn’t just put out a product to get something on the market. They’ve taken 5 years to perfect their blends to really let the flavor stand out. I really enjoy the Peet’s brand so when they said they would send me some to try, I couldn’t send my address fast enough. (Does anyone remember the coffee tasting I did with them? It was YEARS ago and my pictures were wack so I’m not linking!)
There is something calming about starting my day with a cup of coffee. I literally start thinking about it the night before. I think about what flavor I might choose in the morning (will I surprise myself and go with a medium roast?) and what I will do while I sip it (usually emails and setting up my social media posts for the day).
