When I opened the box that said it contained "Godiva Chocolatier Coffee", it felt like Santa had personally left me a present! I couldn't wait to brew up a cup or twelve to sample all the tempting flavors.
Flavors like French Vanilla, Hazelnut Creme, Chocolate Truffle, Breakfast Blend. And seasonal favorites like Peppermint Mocha and Cinnamon Gingerbread Truffle.
All backed by the world-famous (and deservedly so) name of Godiva.
Since it was the weekend, I brewed up a quick pot of Godiva Chocolate Truffle. The small bags are perfectly sized to brew 6 cups of coffee.
Oh, how delicious it was!! I love not just the taste of coffee but the smell also. I expected these coffees to fill my apartment with the flavor of coffee being brewed, but the aroma wasn't very strong at all. But no matter, that just means they concentrated more on getting all the quality they could in a single cup of tasty Godiva coffee!
However, I have had The Sinus Infection From Hades for the past week, so my nose is not to be trusted right now. I'd be willing to bet my taste buds aren't up to usual either, so I'm trying to save some of these delightful coffees for the time when I'm not so sick and I can truly taste, smell, and appreciate them.
Godiva Chocolatier Coffee comes in handy 6-cup sampler packs as well as 12 oz. ground. The multi-sampler packs make truly remarkable and thoughtful gifts for any coffee (or chocolate!) lover on your list. I know I would be in absolute heaven to receive a few of these!
During weekday mornings, I no longer make a pot of coffee because it seems such a waste if I'm running late and don't have time to drink it. So lately I've been using my Keurig single-cup brewer with the K-kap and some previously used (emptied and cleaned, of course) K-cups to make a cup at a time of whatever coffee I want each morning. It's a time saver and a money saver!
So this morning I tried the Peppermint Mocha made in my Keurig brewer. Now, I have to admit, I didn't think I'd care for it very much... I mean, peppermint coffee?? But I was very pleasantly surprised!
The special thing about Godiva flavored coffee is that the flavors aren't overwhelming at all. They are very subtly flavored, unlike some other flavored coffees that knock you down with their added flavors.
No, Godiva Coffee is more sophisticated than that! Each cup is more like the experience of having a regular cup of coffee along with a piece of exquisite Godiva chocolate candy. Yep. That about sums it up. Imagine a cup of delicious coffee along with nibbling on a piece of yummy Godiva goodness!
