The holidays are officially over.
No more gifts. No more tree. No more mess!
Thank goodness. Now it’s time for a brand new year. A new slate.
As you may know, I’m a very proud owner of a Keurig Brewer. It’s basically my lifeline in the morning. I love coffee. I need coffee. And I don’t see myself drinking anything else in the morning to get me through the day. That is exactly why I was so happy to be part of an ambassador program from Green Mountain Coffee. I’m one of the K-Cup Ambassadors who’s lucky to try the newest k-cup portion packs every month.
That’s right. It’s one of the best blogger perks!
Having my own Keurig is like having my very own “barista” right under my fingertips. I can literally have a different variety of coffee each and every day of the month!
For the Past month, I’ve been drinking the Fair Trade Spicy Egg Nog and the Fair Trade Gingerbread K-cup.
“Fair trade means better coffee for consumers and a better life for farmers.”
Both are equally delicious but my favorite of the two is definitely the Spicy Egg Nog. I love Egg Nog during the holidays — who doesn’t? It’s rich, creamy and so satisfying. I would have never thought to add egg nog to coffee but Green Mountain Coffee did just that!
Both Gingerbread and Spicy Egg Nog are light roasts so if you’re like me, who loves strong coffee, brew it on the smallest setting — You’ll enjoy a luscious hot mug of coffee, brewed just right.
As with many of our flavored coffees, we took a down-home cook’s approach to crafting this brew. Combining flavors and roasts is very similar to working with your favorite recipes. And who doesn’t enjoy baking fresh, hot gingerbread?
After baking various recipes and experimenting with different flavors, our final result tastes almost like a proud, “mother’s favorite” type of gingerbread pastry.
For some, the Holidays Season just isn’t complete without eggnog… whether theirs is the traditional, spirited milk and egg punch, or something with a little less nog.
We’re all for holiday traditions, so we just couldn’t help ourselves. We brewed up a batch of coffee that’s got the cinnamon and nutmeg spice of the nog you know, with a creamy body all its own. Add fresh (or whipped) cream, and brew up your very own holiday tradition!
