If you know me well, you know how I love me some coffee. My children know that as soon as I wake up it’s Coffee Time. Before questions are asked, before I help them find their homework, or feed them breakfast, Momma has GOT to have her coffee.
I discovered a unique coffee blend for all you coffee lovers. Now, this is a little different, you might be hesitant, but it’s an instant coffee. Simply mix with hot water, and VOILA!
Before I let you guys in on how I, personally, liked these coffee packets, I’m going to let you in on some fun facts about coffee:
Fact: The average U.S. adult drinks 3.4 cups of coffee a day, or about 26 gallons of coffee a year.
Fact: Coffee is the most popular drink worldwide with over 400 billion cups consumed each year.
Fact: The average cup of coffee is $4.00 at a local coffee-house. At three times a week, that’s more than $500 annually!
Fact: People who buy coffee primarily at drive through windows on their way to work will spend as much as 45 hours a year waiting in line.
I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t want to waste my life away waiting in line for a cup of coffee. Imagine how much time (and gas) you could save by making a gourmet cup of coffee at home!
I was asked to try Nescafe Taster’s Choice five Gourmet Flavors: Hazelnut, Vanilla, Original, Decaffeinated, and 100% Colombian. The ultimate question being:
Good question! Today, its rainy, gloomy, and a little cool outside. Coffee is right up my alley and nothing is more comforting than snuggling on the cough with a quilt, a good book, and a hot cup of Hazelnut flavored coffee.
Yup, I said it. Hazelnut is my favorite, mainly for the sheer fact that it is so smooth and the Hazelnut taste isn’t overbearing. It gives that perfect hint that makes me feel all warm inside. Now, the Vanilla flavor came in close second because I love my sweetness!
As I mentioned before, I’m a lover of coffee. I like to smell the coffee brewing in the pot, I love to smell it when I open the bag. To be honest? I wasn’t sure I would get the full effect by using a single packet of instant coffee. Something about pouring hot water INTO the blend that struck me as …. well nontraditional.
Is that okay?
The taste isn’t any more different than if it was brewed out of the pot. With some of the flavors, like the Colombian, you can still enjoy the aroma of brewed coffee in your cup. What I like, is how simple it is. I mean, all you have to do is pick your flavor, pour a hot cup of water, and stir. Well, if you’re like me I gotta add in some creamer. It’s so simple, convenient, and there aren’t messy coffee filters and grounds to deal with.
These are convienent to carry in your purse, diaper bag, or weekend trips! The Holiday’s are coming so don’t rule out Taster’s Choice for your gift giving needs.
I’ve gotta say there is one Momma Improvement I have to mention. The Original flavor took longer to blend than all the others. Not sure the difference in texture or substance that made it this way for me, but it eventually blended fine after a few minutes. All the other flavors blend instantly!
Nescafe Taster’s Choice Single-Serve Packets are available in the coffee section of supermarkets nationwide for the suggested retail price of $3.49 for a 22 count box. Very Affordable!
