Happy Halloween !!

Happy Halloween to all. I hope it is safe, and sound :).. I'm not one to really go out and mingle with the freaks. I can't stand people as I've gotten older, and grant it I'm only 24, but I've seen it all already. And from what I've seen, I'd rather have a nice cozy romantic night in with my hubby watching movies and having a nice hot cup of java !
So today I was on the hunt for Decaf coffee. Of all the coffee I have in the house, probably 7/8 different bags of variety, and hundreds of Kcups, you would think I'd have one that was Decaf right? Nope. Not one. I used to have Timothy's Colombian Decaf and I truly loved it. You would never have even known it was Decaf unless I told you. Even my better half would drink it. So I ran out naturally. I only have Decaf when it's that time of the month lol, they say women shouldn't drink caffeine so I try my best to be healthy ( especially when it's that "time" I need all the help I can get that my body is feeling so tired and messed up! Don't want to screw it up some more ) . Anywhoo.. I went out shopping during the afternoon and picked up New England Coffee Hazelnut Creme ( Decaf of course). I brewed a cup earlier in my Baby Keurig, and it was soo friggin good . I couldn't get over it. Immediately I smelt it from the other room which is a plus. Great aroma. Then it had a nice crema on it, which not all bag coffee's have so another plus. I only added 2 spoons of half n half no sugar. Tasted great. You got the hazelnut flavor , but there was something in the background that balance it out. Which I loved. I have tried some hazelnut's and some time's they are too "hazelnutty" ( not a world I get it people ! ) and then I want to vomit. So this one was perfect! It is nice medium boldness for a Decaf coffee, this like the other kcup I don't even think you would know was Decaf. So I've found yet another coffee treasure I am in love with! This made my day , along with many other good things :) .. It is only $6.99 bag, and I got it on sale today at my local Key Food for $4.99 steal ! So please try them out. They have a lot of other flavors too.. let me know if you've ever tried this one...

Happy Halloween weekend all ! I have just gotten back home after going away for my bridal shower/ dress fitting/ ordering my flowers for our wedding! I am very excited it's a little over a month away.The butterflies are in my stomach and I can't even wait lol....
Well I hope whatever everyone does they are safe, and keep your kids in earlier there are so many crazy people out there ! After I run my errands I am staying in my warm cozy beautiful apartment with a nice hot cup of coffee and scary movies . It's very chilly here in N.Y.C ..
Well when I went food shopping with my future hubby yesterday we picked up a box of Tully's Italian Roast kcups. It was on sale ! $3 off (at pathmark). I will be reviewing this week, as well as submitting my review for the kcup version of Folger's gourmet Vanilla Biscotti ( spoiler alert ! I LOVED IT ) ...

This is my coffee drink of the day !


Hello my coffee people! Happy Tuesday ( or friday for me lol). Well I had a rough day yesterday. I know my sister, and future hubby did too. I think it's going to be a full moon soon or it already is. Isn't it so weird how at certain times of the month people act crazy! ( and i don't just mean when women get pms ! lol) . Soo, I started over fresh today and was back to my usual positive self. I feel renewed and I'm not going to let any pathetic individuals try and attack me ever again, or bring me down! This is my life to shine. 
Case in point, my treat for today my pumpkin spice kcup with whipped cream I have been talking about. I made it before. It was very yummy. I even put some cinnamon on top to make it very " coffee house ". So I wish you all a great rest of the week? What are your plans to finish out this work week? I am headed on to Staten Island , for my wedding dress fitting. I can't wait! Let me know if you guys have negative people in your life trying to ruin your wedding or otherwise. Let's share and empower each other!

Free Gift Set from Green Mountain!

Hello my coffee lovers! If you are like me, and you are signed up on Face book.com there are some truly great deals you can get. Anywhere from coupons, to free stuff. One of my favorite coffee brands ( actually I think number 1 in my book) Green mountain coffee, was starting to give away free coffee I think once a month ( could be wrong so check it out online ). The last week they gave away about 2500 prizes. Either kcups like I got or ground coffee. I got it today I couldn't believe how fast they sent it, and how beautiful it was! The sampler box alone on keurig.com goes for $9.99, and I'm not sure about the cup but probably the same price. In the box was Vermont country blend, and house blend. I have never tried either of these kcups so I am super duper excited. I love getting free things. I am very thankful. This really made my day :) .. So I will be on the lookout for the next contests and I will be posting them on here.....

Have you guys ever gotten a really great free sample like this before ? If so share :)

Pupkin Spice Kcup review...

Well I have yet another great review on all things with pumpkin or spice in them :) . My latest kcup review is for Green Mountain Pumpkin Spice. My hubby bought me 2 boxes at kmart as surprise gift. ( I have been bugging him to restock the kcup collection for the past month lol). So I tried the kcup yesterday and I loved it. I have to say Green Mountain, makes the best coffee I have ever tasted in my life hands down. There is not one kcup I don't like. Every single one of my favorite kcups are green mountain! They just keep nailing the name of the kcup on the head. This kcup was similar to the coffee creamer I reviewed last week. The undertones taste like a pumpkin flavored coffee. Medium body. But strong enough to carry over the spices. Not sweet like sugar or anything that you'd be like yuck I need more coffee. It was perfectly balanced. The aftertaste is like cinnamon and nutmeg, and all those yummy spices. It is absolutely PERFECT for fall. And for going all the way into the winter. I can see drinking this on Christmas night, or even in the cold months January/ February. Today was my second time trying it and again, I drank it literally to the last drop. Now that I have a new microwave, if my cup gets cold I just reheat it. Because I do not want to waste a drop of this coffee , and you won't either! Definitely a 5 coffee cup rating :) You coffee enthusiasts like me have to try :) Weather you are a keurig lover or not, this coffee comes in a bag as well !

If anyone has tried this post a review as well I'd love to hear your thoughts!

P.S My hubby eyed a "holiday collection assortment kcup pack" at kmart too, and he was saying he will be buying me this to have for november/december holidays. I can't wait to try and review. This will be my first holiday season with our keurig!!

A great find....

I shop at my local pathmark every week with my future hubby. And we are always out on the look out for new, and great coffee's. We use out kcup filter all the time to make the kcups stretched out. So we saw this one bag of coffee ( hartford reserve) and they had all kinds of varieties. It said 4.99 on the sticker but wound up ringing up 6.99 which is still a good price for good coffee. ( I think anyway). So we choose Kona blend. My future hubby loves Kona blend. And me too. It is very good. Medium roast I would say. Tastes good with half n half or any kind of flavored creamer. The first time I made it , it wasn't very strong. Almost a little watery. So I would add the fullest amount to the cup if your making it. Or even a little extra. But again, all in all I really liked the flavor. I have been using it every day. The coffee grind is very course. So you could definitely use this in your French Press. If you have one. Or in the kcup filter like we do :).
I definitely want to try more from this brand. I would give it a 3 1/2 coffee cups out of 5.
Let me know if you have ever tried this brand before .....I'd love to hear from you!

Pumpkin Pie Spice is Yummy!



I just tried Pumpkin Pie Spice from "International Coffee" . I had a lot of bags of coffee left, and I am trying to use it up before re-stocking my KCUP collection. So I see this new one P.P.S in the coffee creamer aisle. And it sounded yummy. And it really is! I give it 4/ 5 coffee cups. It was not overly sweet, or pumpkiny . I can taste a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg in it ( which I really liked ) . Went great with my 8 o clock french roast coffee. It is great for the holiday season to go with all the yummy desserts and cookies on thanksgiving , christmas, new years, and even just in the winter time !
I love it and would recommend to all. And I can't wait to try all the other flavors. P.S. It's only about 3.99 I think for a bottle. So it's a good cheap way to "spice" up your boring coffee without spending a lot. I can't wait until my fiancée' tries it, I think he's going to love it ;)
