Hola from Guatemala!

26 Dec

Hola from Guatemala! I’m traveling for the next week, and while I’ll be Trader Joeless, I will be meeting spectacular people, experiencing Guatemalan culture first hand and drinking delicious coffee!

Care to join me?

TJ’s offers a taste of Guatemala in its Organic Fair Trade Five Country Espresso Blend.

Guatemala, El Salvador, Mexico, Peru and Sumatra combine forces in the name of espresso.

Another cuppa Joe from Trader Joe’s

5 Oct

Thanks once again to a sample at the tasting bar, I’ve added a new coffee to my list of faves from Trader Joe’s.

Dark Sumatra – a tasty brew

Trader Joe’s Dark Sumatra coffee is a delicious roast. The taste is closer to espresso than breakfast blend. Smooth, full of the caffeine we depend on in the morning and packed with the depth of flavor we hope for in every cup of Joe. This is a coffee to keep high on the shopping list!

Thank you, Trader Joe’s!

And thank you for reading and following Things I Love at Trader Joe’s!

The hypnotic allure of Italian Roast coffee

13 Apr

Trader Joe’s always has the coffee on.

There are many beans to choose from at Trader Joe’s, and only one industrial-sized grinder.  I’m a French Roast aficionado and long for TJ’s version when it’s not near. However…

The Italian Roast will tide me over nicely. Very nicely. Bold flavor; rich aroma. The bouquet that takes you back to the old country, you can almost hear hooves clopping on cobble stones, feel the ocean breeze from the Aegean cliffs, gaze skyward and see the cobwebs collecting in the corners of your ceiling…but you couldn’t care less.

Each sip is so inspiring, it will release the hackneyed advertising copywriter inside of you, as your brain reels with cheesy metaphor and clichéd imagery.

Ah, molto bene to the last drop!
