Peet’s Coffee Switch
Anybody who knows me, knows that I love coffee. I could probably save myself the time of making it, by just having an IV drip going straight to the arm. The problem with that would be that I would miss out on the flavor of coffee. Truth be told, some coffees might be better that way, but for a quality coffee – yeah, I want to taste it.
As part of the Peet’s Coffee Switch, I went shopping at Target to find Peet’s Coffee, as well as pick one to try for myself…and switch it with my regular coffee. Fun, right? I always have fun shopping at Target, but this was for something special, and I really enjoyed it. I strolled around until I found the coffee aisle (in our brand spankin’ new grocery section!). The coffee aisle was full of different types of coffee, but I was only interested in one.
On the end of the aisle, I found a display with only Peet’s Coffee. There were quite a few to choose from, but for this “switch”, I needed to buy either Peet’s Cafe Domino, or Peet’s Cafe Solano Medium roast.
I chose the Peet’s Cafe Solano Medium Roast coffee. After shopping a bit more, I headed home to get started on my taste testing. I opened the coffee pouch and took a big whiff. Mmmm it smelled heavenly – just as I would expect from Peet’s. I have only had their coffee in-store before, if you can believe that, so this was really fun for me.
I brewed a cup, added some cream and sugar. I put a few Autumn cookies on a plate and headed outside to enjoy them both in the beautiful weather. I was looking forward to my first sip, and it was just as good as I had imagined. I usually drink bold coffee, so a medium roast is definitely a switch. I feared that it might taste “weak”, but I was thrilled to discover that it was full-bodied, and very rich…just how I like my coffee. And it tasted fresh. Not because I just made a cup, but the coffee itself was fresh.
I sat outside for quite awhile, enjoying the peace and quiet, and savoring each sip of my Peet’s coffee. My regular coffee doesn’t hold a candle to Peet’s and this is a big switch for me. I am anxious to try Peet’s Cafe Domingo too – it is currently on my list for the next time I go shopping!
