National Coffee Day Giveaway

That’s right.

Another coffee-related giveaway this week.

Did you know today is National Coffee Day? Are you celebrating? I am.

I got some samples of the new Starbucks Blonde Roast last week and I tried my Blonde Roast K-cups in my Keurig this week at work. The verdict? I loved it! It’s not too dark and is really well balanced.

I will still always have locally roasted, whole beans to use most days, but this is definitely one of the most well-balanced pre-ground coffees I’ve tried in a long time.

Two people will win a Starbucks Gift Package, which includes:

– A mug

– A sample of Blonde Roast coffees


To Enter:

Leave a comment with your favorite way to start your morning.

I’ll pick the winners next Thursday – good luck!

  22. My mornings were changed for the better when I discovered Starbucks Ice Coffee Via. I LOVE my coffee cold, and the lightly sweetened ice Via mix is faster and easier than brewing hot coffee and then watering it down with tons of ice.

    Every morning I fill a Magic Bullet cup with water and ice Via mix, add just a touch of natural, low fat vanilla creamer and three ice cubes. Then I tap it down on the Magic Bullet for three seconds and I have super delicious freezing cold coffee. Unfortunately, the ice Via mix is hard to find in the winter time, so I pretty much buy a box of it whenever I see it.
