A morning person, I am not. However, my recent discovery of Driven Coffee has perked me up and given me encouragement in getting out of bed in the morning. Let me set the scene – I have three young children at my house. They wake up looooooong before I’d like to, so when my feet hit the ground there’s no turning back. There is no gradual release from my slumber to my day. It is a full throttle, guns a barreling, take-no-prisoners mentality to the day.

How Do I Take My Coffee?

I can’t claim to be a coffee connoisseur. I don’t know the intricacies of the beans, the roasting procedures, or the origin of the coffee plant.

What I do know is taste. I have tried my fair share of coffees, and – full disclosure here – I take my coffee foo foo style. I have historically needed frothed milk and syrups to choke down the caffeinated elixir that gives me the energy I need to stomach my day. I have recently graduated to a simple “cream and sugar” request on occasion, and with that, feel more like a grown-up than ever before.

To answer the question How do I take my coffee? the answer is FROTHED. Stay tuned in the weeks to come for an easy-to-follow (and easily doable!) recipe on making your very own latte at home.

To Each Their Own

After a friend gave me a promo code to try out this local coffee, I fell in love. While I am excited to try additional flavors, I have two current favorites:  Impact Espresso and Colombia Excelso.

Impact Espresso. This blend is my dream come true for my morning lattes. It is a dark roast combining four different beans. It has a taste that is rich and sweet, yet a finish that is strong and bold. 

Colombia ExcelsoThis is a medium roast coffee with a creamy, nutty taste and a clean, smooth finish. It is bold without being overbearing and it is hard to stop with just one mug. 

If you try Driven Coffee, which I definitely recommend, I’d love to hear from you!! Let me know what selections you try and what you think.
