coffee candy

the other day i was at cost plus, where i always find the yummiest yummies, and i came across some coffee candy from indonesia. there was coffee, espresso & latte flavors. each package comes with 42 individually wrapped candies all made with real coffee. i didn't buy any but i made a mental note of them and maybe i'll buy a package on my next trip.

fun coffee mugs

i think half the fun of having coffee is picking your mug. of course the most important reason for drinking coffee is for the amazing flavors but have fun with it. what do you feel like today? are you feeling fancy or silly? nostalgic or playful? i have lots of mugs and i choose carefully everyday. whoo wouldn't love a mug like this one?

when i moved my mug for the picture, i made a little splash. now it looks like my owl is crying a coffee tear! poor owl :(

häagen-dazs coffee ice cream

with so many coffee ice creams to choose from at the supermarket, it could be hard to decide which to purchase. häagen-dazs is my choice.

fyi: even though häagen-dazs looks and sounds purely european, it is totally american. did you know the company started in the bronx?!?

coffee w/ a kitty?

i went to visit my parents this past weekend and while i was enjoying my toffee nut latte, this kitty appeared in the window. this is jersey girl, one of my mom's cats, asking to come in. my mom is that crazy cat lady you've heard tell about. haha, no not really but she does care for the neighborhood strays. she puts food out for them and gets them fixed. props to my mom for going out of her way to help control the overpopulation of stray cats.

mpito tanzania mbeya

so, i've been reading a lot of reviews on mpito tanzania mbeya coffee. it sounded like something i'd like and i became very anxious to try it for myself. i tend to lean towards the fruity coffees and "fruity" was in everyone's description. i ordered a bag from beanfruit coffee company and wow, yum. this was a delicious cup of coffee. all the reviews were spot on. i would definitely recommend this coffee to anyone that appreciates a good cup of coffee.

no more cardboard sleeves

how do you like my new crocheted coffee cup sleeve? no more cardboard sleeves for me. i bought this at etsy from DarZeeDoatsDesigns. i love it. orange is my favorite color and i love how the owl is crocheted right into the design. so cute, don't you think?

you can't buy happiness

i saw this saying on a plaque in a catalog but it was referring to tea, so i made this for all of us coffee lovers.
