Last week my husband started a new position at work, bringing him to the non-vampire side of the work day with me (insert a rousing Hallelujah Chorus here!). Related to that, we're on the search for the perfect morning coffee we can romantically share together in the wee hours of the morning (or, you know, just keep us from killing each other in the wee hours of the morning) There have been a few that were nothing to write home about, but then we came across this Kahlua coffee in the random food section of TJ Maxx (of all places, ha)
This stuff is REALLY something to write home (and a blog post) about! I was excited to see that Amazon carried it ( K cups, too! ) because we know that while TJ Maxx is great, you can't exactly count on a steady stream of the same merchendise.
My husband and I are huge, HUGE coffee drinkers. All day coffee drinkers. I really enjoy flavored coffees while he favors plain black. The Kahlua original is perfect for both of us, there's a hint of the regular Kahlua flavor (without the alcohol burn of course) that makes us both really happy. This coffee also makes fantastic iced coffee better than plain varieties. I should also mention that I enjoy my coffee very strong whole my husband likes it toned down a notch. We can agree that at normal strength we're both satisfied with our morning cup(s). This tastes rich and full, and most importantly it also doesn't taste BURNED, which is my biggest peeve with coffee of any variety. If anything, that alone would bring me coming back for more.
This coffee also makes the house smell great, which is a plus when you're trying desperately to wake up in the morning! We have our coffee pot set to start brewing on a timer so sometimes the coffee is the only thing pulling me out of bed.
So far in our hunt for the perfect coffee I have to say this hits closest to what we are looking for in our daily caffeine fix, possibly the best home-brewed coffee I've ever had. That doesn't mean we will stop looking for something even better, but Kahlua has a peminate place in our kitchen (and bar!)
What's your favorite brand of coffee?
