Morning Coffee to the rescue #PeetsCoffee

Remember how last week I told you that I was trying out a new blend of coffee from Peet’s Coffee? Café Domingo…

Well it’s been a week and I am still enjoying my new morning and sometimes afternoon brew.  It’s definitely helped me get through this busy week, and given me a boost when I need it the most.  Bet my kids have noticed mommy having more energy during the day too.

And because it’s been so incredibly hot this week (someone please tell mother nature it’s October not June!), I’ve been brewing up iced coffee to  drink in the afternoon.

Want to brew up a batch of iced coffee too? Just make a batch of double strength coffee, add some ice and you’ve got iced coffee! (So instead of using 2 tablespoons for every 6 ounces of water, use 4 tablespoons.)  You can keep the extra, if there is any, in the refrigerator. 
I added some cream to mine, and sweetened it with some raw sugar. I love watching the cream mix into the coffee.

Nothing better than cold caffeine! (Seriously, cold is the way to go when you need a wake up.)  I have really been enjoying #PeetsCoffee, and I think I am going to check out a few other roasts when this bag runs out.  Winter will be coming, eventually, and I need to stock up.
If you guys have tried any other Peet’s Coffee roasts, let me know which ones I should check out.

Sorry, I am not up to speed. Is Peet's in my grocery store, or is it a mail order product?

Yum!!!

I think I am going to try this roast next time.

I think i mentioned that we dring "Peet's Major Dickenson Blend" at work. It's a medium roast and I like it a lot :)

Totally unrelated to your coffee post, cos I'm really not a fan of coffee (I don't think I'm an alien, I live in Wales if that helps though?).

Hang on, what was I saying? Oh yes, your post about blog awards made me laugh just now on Crafterminds so I clicked through to come tell you that. I got a blog award and followed all the rules feeling I had to then afterwards I was kicking myself for being a sheep.

Anyhoo, thanks for letting me hijack the coffee post comments even though you didn't really have much choice, well, I guess you could delete it now. Anyway again, thanks
