My mornings are always usually the same and include getting ready, walking and feedings dogs (and hopefully myself) and a mad dash to make a pot of coffee before I leave. Coffee is what I look forward to the most, as it's like a signal to myself saying, "Okay, your day has officially begun, what are you going to do with it?"
I've been drinking Starbucks' new Single-Origin coffee (now available in grocers) for the past few weeks. Single-Origin is when coffee get's it's taste from the characteristics of the soil, climate and elevation of where exactly it's cultivated, resulting in a unique flavor unlike any other. There are three new Single-Origin coffee flavors available, each carefully selected to exemplify the best qualities of the region it comes from, each telling it's own story:
Guatemala Laguna de Ayarza; chocolaty // Timor Mount Ramelau; spicy // Rwanda Rift Valley; sweet and lively
If you're looking for a new flavor to try, I highly recommend any of these three, however the Timor Mount Ramelau is my personal favorite. You can't go wrong with any of these though, as each can will take your taste buds (and your morning) to a different place in the world, maybe one that means something special to you. Which ever one you choose, I hope you enjoy! If you do try one of Starbucks' new Single-Origin coffees, be sure to share your thoughts with the hashtags #TasteOfPlace and #CoffeePassion. By the way, I recently started putting lemon zest in my pancakes and it's deeee-licious! Lemon and blueberry is a great combo too (pictured here).
