Your Fall Favorite Is Back !!!

I hope you are all safe, if you are in an area that is being hit by the hurricane now. Here in N.Y.C it is very heavy thunderstorms as I type. Just wanted to make sure you are all alright :)
Well it's getting to that time of year again where we no longer need flip flops but more scarves, and that really good cup of coffee on those chilly mornings. Fall ! My favorite time of year( along with winter). Many people rave about Green Mountain's Pumpkin Spice. And they are right in doing so ! I am not even a pumpkin person per say, but I definitely love this coffee in the fall/winter. It envokes happy memories of my favorite time of year. It is also nice that they don't offer it all the time, since it makes it that much more special. Plus it's fair trade which is very important ! Sometime's when I have flavored coffee a lot I get boored, and crave regular. This is nice for just a few months. I have a review of the coffee earlier in my blog if you are curious, take a look.
Do you guys usually buy "seasonal " coffee or seasonal items now to get ready for the cooler months ? Or are you all more of a last minute type of person ?

P.S. G.M Pumpkin Spice is available to order on ,

Grove Square Coffee Dark Roast K-cup Review

Well yesterday I did a brand new review ( a good one) and today I'm sorry to say that I have a bad one ! Over my vacation a few weeks back my mom picked me up a box of K-Cups from the Christmas Tree Store. They sell them at a dollar or two discounted. She purchased me the Grove Square coffee Dark roast blend kcups. I thought it would be a good idea to try some new brands. Something different. Plus, I pretty much love every k-cup flavor. I didn't even expect anything bad. But I was very wrong...
First off when I touched the Kcup I noticed already something was weird. I shook it a bit because it felt kind of "empty". The sound was like rocks. It was as if instant coffee was in it. And that was exactly the taste ! That of instant coffee. And bad instant coffee at that. It was like the instant Folgers my mom used to drink. Horrible taste. Bitter after taste. Pretty much everything wrong with it you can think of. I don't know if they are a knock of to k-cups and they don't have fresh brewed coffee in them like the other brands. But if so, they should not even bother labeling themselves k-cups. This is clearly not fresh! It couldn't have been expired either ( as I know the k-cup boxes do have an expiration date on them) because I opened them up right away. I give it about 0 coffee cups out of 5 as my rating. Ironically my husband liked it and drank it lol. He takes so much sugar in his coffee he probably didn't even taste what I did. But I don't put sugar in my coffee and refuse to just because the coffee is horrible.
Have any of you ever tried this brand before ? I thought I had seen them on the internet. I will never buy again ! I read a bunch of reviews on amazon and they all say the same thing as I do , and give the kcups about a 2 rating the most. Wow ! Wish I would have known first before letting my mom get them for me..

Green Mountain Wild Mountain Blueberry K-Cup Review

Happy Monday! The humidity has died down here in N.Y and it is a beautiful day I can finally be outside and open all of the windows :) How are you all doing?
I just received my box of Green Mountain Wild Mountain Blueberry K-Cups. I could not wait to try since I had read/seen so many posts about this coffee being amazing. And hard to find. Well, did this not let me down! This coffee rocks! It is sooooooOooo good. Yes I used all of those o's. It is quite appropriate for the amount of enthusiasm here. The second you brew you start smelling the most amazing scent ever! It is just like going to a Diner or a Dunkin Donuts. You smell fresh blueberry muffins. Then the taste is literally like you are drinking in a muffin! It is quite incredible how you can make coffee taste just like a food lol I honestly expected the coffee to be watery or maybe too sweet or even bitter as a lot of flavored coffee's do. But it had none of those. I put just a little half n half in my cup. No sugar . Nothing else. It was a nice flavor. Not watery. You might not like if you are only for very strong coffee or espresso. And obviously if you don't like flavored coffee do not even try! This is a blueberry in a cup :) The first day I had two cups and I have been drinking it the past few days ever since. I think it is great in the morning, or as an afternoon/evening treat. I am all about watching my weight and finding tricks to keep me satisfied and my mouth shut! This would definitely help lol. It will give you a good " sweet" fix at night . Or any time really. I give it 5 coffee cups out of 5. Which I rarely do for a flavored coffee. But this just really impressed me. Green Mountain is by far the best coffee brands in my opinion. Also I love that this is fair trade certified. Which as you know from me posting in the past is so important for us all especially the farmers that cultivate the coffee we are drinking.

So I definitely would urge you to buy for taste, and for good karma :) Have you guys ever tried this ?

Ciao readers! It is so thick and hot here today in N.Y.C. I barely was moving when I went our earlier in the morning lol. Well I am back from vacation, and ready to roll..Here is the Friday run down on all of your favorite things in life :)

Really cool article about 5 unique cafe's around the world from the Van Houtte Coffee Blog. I would love to go to The Island in the Mur CafĂ©―Graz, Austria. ( Shown in picture above) has their $1 dollar day sale where they will be taking a dollar off select boxes of kcups. Hurry ! Today only.

The U.S is number 1 as usual, in the world's top 10 coffee consuming countries in 2011 . (runners up were Germany & Brazil).

Illy has come out with a new blend called " Monoarabica". They are different versions from around the world. There is a dark blend that is bold & from Brazil. Another blend that is bright and is from Ethiopia. They come in capsules and whole bean form. The price range is from $15.00 regular coffee can and up. These look delicious and the quality is probably amazing ! Order here .

Well that's all folks ! Stay cool & hydrated ...
