Nescafe' Taster's Choice Review

Hello coffee fanatics ! I have a new review for you all. It is for Nescafe' tasters choice instant coffee variety. Now you all now I am a pure Keurig lover and all things kcups. But I don't discriminate lol. I love all coffee. Bagged coffee, espresso from the stove, and even instant. I know I said that word that makes most coffee snobs cringe (instant yuck) lol. But I actually found a great brand and flavorings that will make even the most pretentious enjoy this cup !
I have received a sampling pack of tasters choice and it had two varieties I tried and really loved. One of them was the 100% Columbian, and the Hazelnut. The columbian was really good. It had such a nice flavoring and was medium bodied. But not one sip tasted bitter, or even instant to be honest. It's pure Arabica so you know you are getting quality flavor. The hazelnut I really ejoyed the flavor as well. Was nice for when I am in the mood for flavored coffee. A bit lighter than I like but still good. Since this is instant, sometimes if you put too much water, it will be lighter naturally. So next time I'd probably use less. ( The pack recommends 6oz of water per pack).
Now I used the sample packs that come pre-measured. They are super duper easy to use. You can boil water, pour the pack in the cup and then you are done! Or you can even use your keurig and brew the 6 oz of water into your cup. I use it now if I run out of kcups and I can't make it to bed bath and beyond. It's good to have if you are super lazy. Or you just like the flavoring like I do. They come in a nice size plastic canister as well that is really convenient and easy to use. I have nothing but good things for this review to say. All around great product. Good price. And for everyone who loves coffee and convenience from time to time. You can purchase packs/bottle at your local grocery stores or even buy in bulk online. I give the columbian 3 1/2 coffee cups out of 5. And the hazelnut 3.

So try it out I think you will be shocked as I was. Have any of you ever tried these ? Do you use Instant or will you never try ??

The most caffeinated cities ..

Here is a great study I found of the top 25 most caffeinated cities. NY was second which in my head I was thinking it had to be number one or at least in the top five. We were beat out by Chicago. Check out the list. Was your city on there ??

Green Mountain Freebie Alert !!!

There is nothing better than getting a free sample in your mail to brighten your day. It's a great way to try new products, or get a surprise to lift your spirits. Also, when things are really tough , it can help out a lot. That's how I first started signing up for samples. When my husband lost his job 4 years ago and we were struggling. Anything to help did. But years later, though we are doing great , I still sign up for samples because you never know, and I love to get a surprise :). Simple things in life make me happy. And I know this one will make you coffee lovers happy. If you have facebook, like the greenmountain fan page and you can get either a free sample of bag coffee , or kcup portion pack! I signed up and got the free kcups since I have a lot of bag coffee still, and could use kcups any time!!!! Great deal, but hurry because they will go super duper fast !
