I raise kids. I work full time. I blog. Therefore, one thing I don't do much of is sleep. I average 4-5 hours of sleep each night during the week, and I'll admit, it it often difficult to make it through my long days at work. When 2:00 rolls around, I start getting sleepy, and I need a pick-me-up to get through the afternoon.
As you all probably know by now, my afternoon pick-me-up comes in the form of a cup of coffee. When I start having problems keeping my eyes open while looking at my computer screen, I head to the break room to recharge. Up until just recently, though, I didn't necessarily look forward to my coffee breaks. Why? Because work coffee is horrible! I mean, it does the job and wakes me up, but the taste of our company-provided coffee leaves something to be desired.
We recently added a little mini-market in our break room to offer a greater variety of lunch options and snacks to our employees, and I was thrilled to see a Keurig brewer added to the coffee station. Goodbye work coffee and hello K-cups! I was finally able to actually enjoy my coffee breaks!
I was given the opportunity to sample some K-cups from Grove Square and Caza Trail, and of course I jumped on that sampling opportunity as fast as I could. I am constantly on the hunt for that "perfect" cup of coffee, so I'll give anything at least one try. I received three boxes of K-cups to try - Grove Square Hot Cocoa in three different flavors, Grove Square Cappuccino and Caza Trail Dark Roast.
I've become quite the coffee connoisseur lately, and I like bold, rich coffee. I'm not really into to the sweet, flavored coffees. Maybe it's just a mind-trick, but I feel like the bolder the coffee, the more alert and awake I become. When I saw that the arrow on the box of Caza Trail Dark Roast was pointing to the highest "dark" level, I knew that this box of K-cups was going into my special stash, and that I would not be sharing. Hey! There were only 12 cups in that box and they were all mine!
As soon as I popped my K-cup into the brewer and pressed the button, I could smell the delicious aroma coming from the brew. I couldn't wait for it to be finished so I could find out if it tasted as good as it smelled.
Once my coffee was brewed, I added one pack of sugar and one single-serve container of creamer and headed back to my office. My 2:00 coffee break is the one time of day where I just relax for a few minutes and regroup for whatever comes my way in the afternoon, and thanks to this delicious blend from Caza Trail, it is now my favorite time of the day!
The Caza Trail Dark Roast coffee is absolutely delicious! It is bold, but not bitter, and it is the perfect midday pick-me-up! The best part about it is that I never have to drink the dreaded "work coffee" again!
This coffee was so good, in fact, that I couldn't bring myself to try the others. After all, I loved the taste of the bold coffee, so why switch? I put the Cappuccino and Hot Chocolate out for my coworkers, and one of my friends enjoyed them both so much that she ended up with the boxes at her desk. I think I need to get her some of these K-cups for Christmas, because they are long gone.
