Mmmmmmm.  Coffee.

I know that from watching my Facebook feed every day that many people need their cup of Joe in order to function.  If you are one of those people, I think I have something that may help!

How would you like delicious, fresh ground coffee, delivered straight to your door?   With Coffee Bean Direct, you can!

From their website:

“All of our coffees are gourmet-quality just like you would find from any other gourmet/specialty roaster- the only difference being that we price at the wholesale level by default for everybody. We roast ALL of our coffee in-house, and have complete control over the quality and freshness of the beans. Coffee Bean Direct currently roasts more than 70 varieties of coffee!”

I love that they even put their freshness promise right on the back of the bag!

Coffee Bean Direct carries coffee from Africa, Arabia, Central America, South America, Indonesia, India, USA and the Islands.  They have Fair Trade Coffee, Espresso, Signature Blends, Flavored Coffee, Half-Caffeinated, Decaffeinated, Smoked Coffee, Coffee Samplers and Coffee Accessories!  Something for everyone!

Since I can’t handle caffeine and my hubby loves his cup (or two or three) of high-test in the morning, I gave him my sample bag of Coffee Direct City Roast Columbian Supremo coffee to try.

It smelled really rich, like the yummy smell of that coffee shop you pass in the mall while doing your holiday shopping, only in your own home.  ;-)

The hubby said it was very good and had several cups this morning!

They have a really neat BLOG, where they share coffee tips and tricks for brewing, fun company events and even recipes using coffee and tea!

You can purchase Coffee Bean Direct coffee from their website in 1, 5 and 25 lb. bags.  They have $7.50 flat rate shipping for orders under 25 lbs. and free shipping on orders of 25 lbs. or more.

I am pleased to be able to offer ONE FREE 1 LB. BAG OF COFFEE to one lucky coffee drinker!

Review and Giveaway! Peet’s Coffee & Tea

Monday, November 26th, 2012 by Lisa

Friday, November 30, 2012 at 5pm PST.  This giveaway is now OVER.  Thank you for all of your comments.  I really enjoyed reading all of them!  The winner has been randomly chosen and notified via email.  Congratulations Wendy!

Lisa Irvine writes at Lisa’s Blogety Blog. You can find her at @Lirvine98 on twitter.  If you have an idea for a giveaway, please let her know!

These cold Fall nights have me drinking a lot of tea.  When I received my sample of Peet’s Holiday Blend Coffee and Teas, I was really excited!  New teas to try!  My husband was really happy that there was caffeinated coffee included as he is not a tea drinker.

The first thing I noticed when I took the tea tins out of the box was how festive they are!  Perfect for gift giving!  I received both Peet’s Winter Solstice Signature Blends tea and the Holiday Breakfast Blend tea and a bag of Peet’s Holiday Blend Coffee.  I also received a really lovely box of Peet’s Good Hope Spice Blend Tea Bags (pictured below).

I first tried the Good Hope Spice Blend.  I loved it.  I’ve been drinking a cup just about every afternoon since receiving it.  It’s very smooth and not spicy at all.  It’s great with a biscotti or a Christmas cookie!

My husband has been drinking Peet’s Holiday Blend Coffee for about a week now.  He usually doesn’t say much about his coffee, unless he really hates it, but when I asked him he did say he liked it.  I myself don’t do caffeinated coffee, so I sadly haven’t tried it, but it does have a wonderful aroma while it’s brewing!

I realized when I opened the Winter Solstice Tea Tin, that I didn’t quite know what to do with it!  It is loose tea and not tea bags.  It smelled wonderful, but not having the proper equipment to craft the perfect cup of “real” tea, I closed the tin back up until I could think of a way to try it!  I mean, I don’t even own a teapot.  I usually nuke water in the microwave and then stick a tea bag in it!  (Yikes.  I know.)

So, I went out and bought a tea ball!  It worked perfectly!  I had a lovely, aromatic cup of tea!

Now, I haven’t opened my tin of Holiday Solstice Blend Tea yet, but I’m sure it will be great, just like the other two teas!

Peet’s Coffee & Tea can be purchased online on their website Peets.com.

I am happy to say that that nice folks at Peet’s have offered a fabulous giveaway for one of our readers!

Peet’s will send to the winner:

·         A French Press

·         Chocolate Covered Cherries

·         A bag of Holiday Blend Coffees

·         Three Different Teas

 

Pretty great, huh?

 

*I have confirmed that the coffees and teas are gluten-free.  The chocolate covered cherries do not contain gluten but they are crafted in a kitchen with other products that may contain gluten.
