Starbucks Breakfast Blend
There is little doubt in my mind that if I don’t get access to a cup of coffee every single morning, my day will be terrible. While I wish I could afford to buy a cup of coffee every morning from the local coffee bistro down the road, the reality is I cannot, and therefore must resort to drinking store bought drip coffee. For a while, this was ultimately an act of submission. The standard coffee brands, such as Folgers and Nescafe, just weren’t doing it for me. Then one day my mom brought me a bag of Starbucks Breakfast Blend, and the bland expectations I had of homemade coffee were immediately thrown out the window.
Starbucks Breakfast Blend is the perfect cup of Joe for three specific reasons. First of all, the flavor is fantastic. It is a mild blend, and it tastes completely fresh, even when I use the pre-ground beans. This is important, as I almost never taint my coffee with cream and sugar. So without any condiments whatsoever, it tastes fantastic. Even when I do feel the urge to satisfy my sweet tooth and throw in a little sugar, the taste never dissipates. Reason number two: the texture is fantastic. Like I said before, it is rare that I put any sort of flavoring into my drink, so the need for a smooth texture is an absolute must. Starbucks Breakfast Blend absolutely satisfies that need. Even better yet, the texture is consistent from coffee machine to coffee machine. It doesn’t matter if I’m using my personal 4-cup coffee maker or the industrial coffee pot at my job it comes out the same every time: fantastic. And finally reason number three as to why Starbucks Breakfast Blend is the ultimate cup of coffee: it’s completely affordable. A $10 bag of this stuff lasts me around three weeks. Doing the math, that saves me $20 a week by making coffee at home as opposed to buying a cup every morning from the local bistro before I head off to work.
So I get awesome flavor, texture and consistency every morning for a completely and absolutely affordable price. I don’t think there’s any going back to Folgers at this rate. Rating
