The hubby and I are huge coffee drinkers.  Neither of us can truly function first thing in the morning until we’ve had our first cup of coffee, especially the hubby.  I know not  to engage in any conversations with him in the morning before he’s had his first cup.  Ahem. 

Coffee for me was an acquired taste – I loved the smell, but couldn’t understand what everyone saw in the stuff.  My very first office job I took it upon myself to ready the big industrial coffee maker just to be nice to all my coffee drinking co-workers since I was usually the first one in each morning.  

I loved the smell of freshly brewing coffee, but still couldn’t bring myself to drink it.  I finally decided to experiment one morning, because it sure did smell delicious – but no way was I drinking it black.

I poured myself a cup, then added a packet of hot chocolate to it to see how it would be.  The rest, as they say, is history. It’s probably the reason I always have to have flavored creamers whenever drinking my coffee – I can’t seem to appreciate a cup of coffee unless it’s flavored.

Since the hubby likes his coffee a little less fru-fru than I do, I was very happy when Keurig showed up on the scene:


I was even happier when yummy flavored coffee started showing up of the K-Cup variety, like  Caza Trail and Grove Square:


Whether you prefer French Vanilla Cappuccino (like me), a strong dark roast (like the hubby), or a tasty Hot Cocoa (like Princess Nagger and the hubby and me), Caza Trail Coffees and Grove Square Specialty Beverages offer the perfect accompaniment for the whole family.


The hubby really enjoyed the dark roast – I’m sure he was happy he didn’t have to put up with my preference of a not-so-strong coffee.  I loved the French Vanilla Cappuccino – I was pleasantly surprised how delicious it was.

Princess Nagger was extremely happy to indulge in the milk chocolate Hot Cocoa – neither she nor I are fans of dark chocolate, so the hubby was quite happy to imbibe.  I loved the Peppermint flavor – perfect for this time of year.

  1. I enjoy a fullbodied dark roast coffee like French or Italian roast that lets you know there is coffee in the cup besides the flavored creamer.
