We are coffee people around here: hubby, me, our 15yo. The three of us are the “big” coffee drinkers, but the young ones have no problem taking sips of my mochas. If it’s decaf, I let them.
Now that the weather is getting cooler, I find that I want a cup of joe a little more often. One to start the day while I dig through my stack of books, another in the afternoon, and maybe a third as I head out to a hockey game. The danger with this last point is that there’s a Starbucks right on my way between home and the rink.
One way that I’ve been able to curb that habit has been to fire up the Keurig. We’ve had our brewer for a couple years now and it’s been such a great way to make good coffee at home. It’s much faster than the cone drip system that hubby uses. So, I can make a cup, or rather, the machine can make a cup while I rush around getting my Hockey Mom on. Love that!
Fair Trade Coffees
This month is National Fair Trade Month. For more than a decade, Green Mountain Coffee® has been a leader in the fair trade movement, providing a better cup of coffee to consumers and a better quality of life for coffee farmers. Fair Trade means coffee farmers get a fair price for their beans they grow. That means they can invest in crops, their communities, and their futures.
While fair trade coffees sometimes cost more than other types, it’s truly for a good cause.
And the Sumantran Reserve K-cups? Very tasty!
