Steeped Coffee is Excellent!

Posted on June 13, 2021 in 2021 Dads And Grads Gift Guide

I love Steeped Coffee!  It’s got the best taste, and I think my 24 year old, daughter, agrees!  We drink Steeped Coffee every morning, with our breakfast.  She says it tastes “a little like heaven”.  I think I would say she’s 100% correct!  It has this extremely fine taste.  I love the decaf, and I don’t drink decaf!  My daughter loves the Odyssey Blend.  You need to check this coffee out!

Steeped Coffee is 100% Made In America!  We couldn’t be happier about that.  It’s easy to make, in fact so easy, that we just put the coffee bag in a cup of water, and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.  I steep for 3 minutes, then drink.  I usually add creamer and sugar, but Steeped Coffee is so fine tasting, I drink it black!

You can also make iced coffee with Steeped Coffee.  There are so many recipes, and I’ll share several below:

How to make the perfect Steeped Iced Coffee Concentrate

For each serving, you’ll need

1 Steeped Coffee Pack

1 10 oz. mug

Filtered water

Directions

  1. Heat filtered water to 205 degrees, or just below boiling
  2. Place Steeped Bag at bottom of mug
  3. Pour hot water over Steeped Bag until the mug is half full
  4. Use string to dunk Steeped Bag 20 to 30 times over 1 minute
  5. Leaving the Steeped Bag in, let the coffee steep for 5 to 7 minutes or more to taste
  6. Remove Steeped Bag

Tips

  • To serve a crowd, make multiple batches of Concentrate. Store leftover Concentrate in the fridge.
  • Freeze Steeped coffee in ice cube trays. Use coffee cubes instead of regular ice cubes to avoid diluting your beverage.
  • Everyone knows the best way to enjoy iced coffee is through a straw. Be kind to the environment – buy reusable, dishwasher-safe metal straws!

Who Doesn’t Want The Perfect Cup of Coffee?

Posted on October 28, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

While National Coffee Day has come and gone, you can still get that perfect cup of coffee, from a great brand.

Melitta will get you that perfect cup of coffee.  I love my Melitta!  This system is awesome.  I make my coffee with Melitta everyday.  My husband loves it so much, we’ve had to buy a second one.  My 21 year old, daughter, is getting one for Christmas.  This nifty little system has us all going crazy.

Tips to a better cup:

How fresh the coffee you are using is just as important as the overall quality of the coffee. Coffee that is freshly roasted and stored properly produces a superior cup.

To read more, go here.

Brewing Methods, and such:

There are several types of pour-over coffeemakers that make great coffee conveniently.

To read more, go here.

You will love this brewing system.  It’s convenient, easy to use, and gives you a quality cup of coffee.

You can even find a list of recipes on their site, including the one below:

Ingredients:

1 cup hot Melitta Coffee (the stronger, the better)
1 cup hot cocoa

Melitta for On The Go Moms/Dads

Posted on August 16, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide Reviews women

I love Melitta!  It’s the best for getting coffee, and for their coffee makers.  I recently got to try the 1 cup Pour Over Coffee Brew Cone & Travel Mug Set.  It’s so great.  It’s so easy to make my coffee, and fast working.  It’s great to have added this product to my cabinet.  It’s easy to get a cup of Joe in the A.M. now.

Details:

A fast, inexpensive way to bring out coffee’s true flavor with handcrafted brewing

Uses #2 or #4 size cone filters.

Cone design enables you to see into the cup without lifting to avoid overfill

Screw-top travel coffee mug guarantees top is secured and prevents leaking

Travel mug holds 16oz of hot coffee. Its narrow base fits in most car cup holders

Plastic cone is BPA free and top rack dishwasher safe

Travel mug is hand wash only

Now, let’s talk Melitta Coffee.  Their Caramel Macchiato is to die for.  This coffee is so good, that I actually went through an entire bag in 2 days.  I can’t help it.  I love it.  The Caramel Macchiato melted in my mouth.  It has a sweet Vanilla cream taste, along with the caramel.  It’s so good, that I didn’t even share it.  My 20 year old, daughter, would’ve loved it, and I feel so guilty, that I’ll have to order more.  I never knew a coffee to be this delicious, seriously.

The coffee is delicious, and the products are great.  What more can I tell you?  Go now, to Melitta’s site, and check it out.  Link is above and below.  You will love them as much as I do.

Here’s a Recipe for you to try, once you’ve received your Melitta:

Artisan Cold Brew with Melitta

  1. In a pitcher, add 2/3 cup of ground Melitta Coffee to 16oz of cold water. Mix well.
  2. Cover pitcher and chill for 4+ hours. Remove from refrigerator and stir vigorously
  3. Place a Melitta Cone Filters in Melitta Pour-Over Cone. Set cone atop a carafe or jar. Pour the stirred coffee/water mix into filter. Wait for all liquid coffee to filter through and drip in carafe below Repeat pour-over process until all mix is filtered. You now have Melitta Cold Brew Concentrate
  4. Keep Cold Brew Concentrate covered and chilled for up to a week. Enjoy!

Newman’s Own is the Perfect Addition to the Stocking This Year

Posted on October 27, 2016 in 2016 Holiday Gift Guide Reviews

newmans-own

Newman’s Own is a great brand, with great foods.

We received a nice box from Newman’s Own, including Organic Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, Organic Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cups, Organic Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, and more.  These items, though, would be perfect little stocking stuffers.

newmans-own1

My 19 year old, daughter, sucked down the Dark Chocolate.  She loves dark chocolate, and said this was terrific.  My 5 year old, son, ate the Organic Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, and he says, “yummy”.  You know 5 year olds, they are honest.  And, he loved them.

newmans-own2

Newman’s Own has an entire line of foods, including cookies, snacks, candies and mints, etc.  You will love the products from Newman’s Own.

newmans-own3

My favorite is pictured above.  I love the Organic Espresso Dark Chocolate Bar.   I, personally, also love the Fig Newmans (Strawberry).  But, the Espresso Dark Chocolate is the ultimate.  You should try both of these items.

newmans-own4

Another great product is Organic Newman’s Special Blend – 18ct K-Cups.  I love the K cups from Newman’s Own, especially Special Blend.  This is wonderful.  I am an avid coffee drinker, and this is my go to brand.  With all the brands out there, Newman’s Own is, and has been, my favorite.

About the Company:

In 1982, Newman’s Own started as a tiny boutique operation – parchment labels on elegant wine bottles that Paul Newman filled with his homemade salad dressing and gave to his neighbors as holiday gifts. He expected train wrecks along the way and, instead, got one astonishment followed by another.
