Disclosure: Thanks to the wonderful people at Eight O’clock coffee for sending me samples of their delicious coffee blends. All opinions are always my own.
I can honestly say that coffee makes the day so much better for me. Not a day goes by that I don’t have my morning cup of Joe so it’s no wonder when Eight O’clock Coffee contacted me to see if I was interested in reviewing their new coffee blend flavors, I immediately said yes. I would be insane if I let this opportunity pass me by.
Being that I suffer from Hyperthyroidism, I have to limit my caffeine intake so I try to keep it at a minimum. So since my health isn’t 100%, I was beyond excited to try the relaxing, decaffeinated blend. The RELAX DECAFFEINATED blend was created to make you feel relaxed and help you unwind when the days are chaotic. It’s carefully blended with Chamomile and Lavender along with 100% Arabica Beans. Surprisingly, the two relaxing ingredients complement the arabica beans very well. It’s the perfect coffee blend to enjoy a relaxing morning or even right before bedtime. The coffee was so delicious, I found myself making two cups after dinner a few times. I would definitely buy this blend again.
The next blend is called ALERT HI-CAFFEINE. It was amazingly good, according to my husband, who’s no stranger to the active ingredient, Guarana. He stated the coffee blend was rich and very satisfying. All he needed was a cup to stay up and feel alert. He also said he would definitely buy this blend again especially since the cold weather is fast approaching. He would rather stay warm and alert with the ALERT blend than be cold with those energy drinks that you find at the grocery stores.
The last one, which by the way we were both able to drink together, was the 100% BRAZILIAN BREAKFAST blend. I decided to try this blend since it states that it’s smooth and soft-bodied with mild acidity. Its flavor was definitely rich and smooth. This particular blend is perfect for those people with sensitive stomachs, like myself. At times, I can sometimes get the occasional stomach cramps if I drink harsh coffee but I’m happy to report that this particular blend did not hurt my tummy at all.
The 100% Brazilian Breakfast Blend is a medium roast so it’s definitely a coffee blend that can be enjoyable any time of the day.
Overall, Eight O’clock Coffee exceeded my expectations. I never thought I would enjoy this coffee since I never gave it a chance. I know people that love it and now I get it — It’s a great cup of coffee.
