I am so excited to announce that I have teamed up with Starbucks as a part of their Blogger Community! To kick off the program, they sent me some of their classic coffee flavors, a pour-over brewer, some glassware, a calendar and a coffee passport.
To be honest, I am normally a patron of the Starbucks drive-thru, so it was fun to experience the different coffee flavors and the experience of making it at home. John and I spent last Sunday morning in the kitchen, grinding the beans and smelling all of the delicious coffee flavors. John was drawn to the Dark Cafe Verona, while I am a fan of the Blonde Veranda Blend. We also tested out the pour-over brew method (which I highly recommend)! It is simple to use, makes a great cup of coffee and is dishwasher friendly.
I used my new ceramic travel mug this week for work, and it was fantastic, too. I love that Starbucks makes stylish dish-ware that is substantial, well-made and effective. It kept my coffee warm and the bright red chevron pattern is trendy and cute!
I cannot wait to share more with you in partnership with Starbucks in the coming year! If you end up trying the pour-over brew method, tell me what you think :)
