Morning Perk Up Using the Best Coffee Maker + #Giveaway! #CoffeeJourneys #Shop #Cbias

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias, Millstone® Coffee, and Mr. Coffee®. #CollectiveBias 

I don't know what I would do without flavored coffee. Every since I became parent, it is essential. I do have to admit that I do not have vast experience in brewing my own pot of coffee at home since I just grab on on the go. Since I wanted to start enjoying a delicious cup on the weekends as well as have it available for our guests (I can't tell you how many times people were shocked that we didn't offer coffee in our home), it was perfect timing to try Millstone® Coffee in my Mr. Coffee® 10-cup Optimal Brew™ from Walmart.


My first experience with coffee was not so splendid. My piano teacher made me drink a sip from a fancy cup when I was in high school. Let's just say I was not happy about it nor did I enjoy it. Fast forward to college through law school and I started to enjoy a bit more since I was always periodically studying. The coffee addiction kicked in after having Kenzie. I refrained when I breastfed both kids and I was craving it when I smelled the delicious aroma around it. Guess who bolted for a cup after the weaning was complete?

 
The Mr. Coffee® 10-cup Optimal Brew™ looks sleek and clean on my counter top. I like that it is easy to fill and clean due to the removable filter basket that is mounted on the side. You can brew 10 cups in less than 7 minutes so this is great for all your guests to enjoy after a meal. The timing ensures a thorough extraction and full bodied flavor. The sleek stainless steel carafe is functional in that the coffee is kept hot until the very last drop is enjoyed. This is a great option because while I like to drink coffee in the morning, Hubs enjoys it throughout the day so he finish the pot at his own leisure.


Since I only drink flavored coffee, I picked up a bag of the Millstone® Coffee Hazelnut Cream from Walmart and spooned it into the coffee maker. While the coffee brews, I get Kenzie's backpack ready for school and clean up the kitchen and living room because there is almost always some sort of clutter.


I then pour a cup of the Millstone® Coffee into a mug and enjoy about 5 minutes of me time before heading to work. It is during this time that I don't have to worry or think about anything and just relax before my hour long commute to work. The flavor is rich and smooth. There are many varieties of Millstone® Coffee so you can definitely find one (or several) that fits your taste buds. I am definitely picking up several different varieties soon!

Weekends are when I can just sit and enjoy a cup of coffee with a pastry with Frozen / Disney in the background. Since the weather has been hot, what better way than to add some cream and ice to my Millstone® Coffee  for a delicious treat?


I am such a great wife that after I polish off my cup and before leaving for work, I pour some into Hubs' travel mug so he can take it work. Bonus points! I am no longer afraid to brew my own cup of joe at home especially since it is so yummy and satisfying. Who knew it was so easy and satisfying? I can't wait to have our friends over to compliment my coffee making skills.

Tell me about your #CoffeeJourneys. What flavor Millstone® Coffee have you tried or want to try?


One winner will Receive a bag of Millstone® Coffee and Mr. Coffee® 10-cup Optimal Brew™!

  51. My first experience with coffee was similar to yours. It was my aunt who made me drink a cup when I was a teenager. I don't know why she thought I HAD to be initiated! When I was younger, she had also insisted I try certain foods that I still hate to this day. Get off my back, you're not my mother! I do drink coffee now and would love to try the Hazelnut flavor!
