Coffee Giveaway

>> Saturday, February 06, 2010

For those of you who haven't heard, Western PA got hit with 18 inches of snow last night/early this morning. To give you an idea, we had two cars in the driveway. You can still see the side mirror on mine LOL

What better way to spend a snow day than indoors with a nice hot cup of coffee? Recently, I was sent some of Nescafe Taster’s Choice instant coffee sticks to review - original, decaf, vanilla, hazelnut, columbian, and gourmet roast. Before I begin, I will tell you straight-out I'm a coffee snob. I own a top-quality pump espresso machine and a not-so-cheap grinder. I buy my coffee beans online to guarantee freshness. I hardly drink coffee from drip-coffee makers (aka your typical coffee maker) simply because it's not prepared properly and tastes awful. And McDonalds "lattes" are worse than a cup of mud. Really, it should be illegal for fast food places to sell anything more than a simple pot of coffee. I've even blogged about coffee beans and different types of drinks. So yes, it is safe to say I love coffee and only expect the best.

As you can probably imagine, I wasn't expecting much from instant coffee. However, I was surprised. After adding some sugar and milk (which I do for any cup of coffee), it tasted decent. Something I can make when I don't have time to make a good cup. It reminds me of my traveling days while studying abroad, staying at hostels and making a cup in the morning. To give Nescafe a fair review, I had my dad make a cup because he isn't picky. He made the vanilla kind and loved it. I had the Columbian one.

Like what you see in this picture? Now is your chance to win your own instant coffee and mug. I have three prize packs to give away to my lovely readers. Here's how you can win.

1. Visit Nescafe's website.

2. Leave one comment answering this question: What kind of coffee do you enjoy? It can be a particular brand, a particular kind (latte, cappuchino, macchiato, etc), a particular setting (coffee house, with friends, etc), whatever. Or tell me a coffee story. If you don't like coffee, well why are you entering a coffee giveaway? ;)

Giveaway ends February 14, 2010 and you must live in the US. Three winners will be picked randomly.

We are snowed in too! I am way too lazy to make coffee in an actual coffeemaker, but when I purchase it, I like a latte or just a regular coffee.

Thanks for the chance to win!

We got snow here, but not near what you guys got! Reminds me of my days in upstate NY. :) I am a coffee snob too. I only drink Starbucks coffee, which I buy at the local Starbucks I frequent, have them grind, and then brew at home.

Stephanie Bourassa 8:52 PM  

My father's girlfriend is a big fan of this coffee. I myself don't drink coffee so I don't know the difference. I think it's the red one that she likes.

Sherry G 1:38 PM  

Down here by Pittsburgh we got 22 inches!! No classes today though =)). Umm I love like caramel frappe's from McDonald's sooo much! They are chilled drinks but oh so delicious.

Megan 8:26 PM

We got snow too, not as much as you did, but we are getting more today and tomorrow. I'm not a coffee snob, hot and black works for me.

PamelaJD 8:51 PM  

From Nescafe, their Colombian roast is my favorite & I keep a stockpile of it in my desk at work.
At home I brew the Italian Roast from Cost Plus World Market.
Thanks for the giveaway!

My husband is a huge coffee fan and I can never keep up with what brand or flavor is his current favorite.

I like those cheap, watered down cappuccinos from convenience store - no connoisseur of the bean here.

Would just like to win this for him!

jennem 10:21 AM  

My husband is freshly grinding some beans to be made in the French press...I'm in heaven! But I'll pretty much drink and enjoy any coffee, I'm not picky!
Thanks for the chance!
