Wine & Dine

Coffee Kind is an online coffee shop to get speciality coffee from around the world. They also have a discovery subscription plan that mails you two bags of coffee (6 oz each) along with information on the beans.

I ordered my first box for medium / dark because they had an enticing holiday sale of “make a purchase and get random giftcard up to $50”. The first box is also 50% off (aka $10) with the promo code FIRSTBOX50. Not knowing I missed the order deadline deadline (the 10th of each month), I wondered why my order took so long to arrive back in December. It arrived mid-January like this:

Thanks to Snowpocalypse, we had a ton of time indoors to brew coffee. The bags of coffee were very aromatic 😍. I was practically like an addict squeezing the bag and sniffing the air valve. It smelled like roasted chocolates and baking spice, exactly like the tasting notes they described!

Wine & Dine

I think I had a coffee each day this week after coming back from the cruise. Having to think is just too much after being on a boat, eating all day, and being lazy. I thought I expend my energy showing how much coffee is awesome by drawing it out on the S Note app of my phone.

Yesterday was also the the launch of Starbucks‘ new fall drink: the Toasted Graham Latte. I was expecting it to be like cookies & milk or toasted flakes… but it was just a toned down Pumpkin Spice Latte with less sugar and more foam (which I finished eating with my handy spoon! Let no milk go to waste!). Both drinks do not have much flavor. Needless to say, the almost $5 spent on a tall drink was not worth it.

Time to go grab today’s coffee. I don’t follow football but I know the Giants won cause Dunkin Donuts told me coffee is $0.25 today thanks to their New York wins promotion. DD just rocks in terms of membership rewards.

Edit 9/30:

I forgot to mention how cool barista-for-hire is! Check out the rolling bean, who came to my office today and crafted a yummy pumpkin chai latte for me (and again today: a dirty chai pumpkin latte), yum!
