Who doesn't love (or need) a good ole cup of Joe in the morning? I know I do to get my gears turning! While I love trying new things, I am a bit hesitant when it comes to switching up my trusty favorites like coffee. I received 2 packages of Melitta coffee (Blanc Et Noir and Parisian Vanilla) and a single cup coffee brewer. Much to my surprise Melitta produced an excellent cup of coffee with brilliant aromas and taste! I was very impressed.
You may have recognized the Melitta coffee filter in most grocery stores like me. However, until recently I had never tried their coffee. Melitta was first started based on the revolutionary design of their coffee filters. In 1908 Melitta was born from a German Housewife's idea to filter out unwanted residue from coffee. Through out the years since then Melitta has strived to produce excellent quality coffee filters designed for today's generation along with a premium line of gourmet coffees and coffee makers.
The Cafe Collection Parisian Vanilla that I received was the first one I tried. It came extra fine ground in an 11oz resealable bag. I read the back of the bag of both coffees which suggested refrigeration after opening for maximum freshness. I never knew or thought of this before, but tried it and sure enough it produced the best coffee day after day. It's nice to have your kitchen brew up a coffee that you can smell lingering in the air before you even try your first cup. As much as we drink coffee, the 11oz bag of Parisian Vanilla lasted us about a week. I was sad to see it go. As I sit here writing this review with an empty bag in my hand, I can still smell the aroma of this wonderful coffee still lingering in the bag. This is definitely a coffee you'd want to offer to your guests and certainly if you are a coffee lover you should give Melitta a whirl, you just might be a switcher!
The Cafe Collection Blanc Et Noir that I also received came extra fine ground just like the other and in an 11 oz resealable bag. This is a light and dark roast coffee. I found this especially good for those morning where I needed an extra "pick me up". What I liked especially about the Blanc Et Noir is it's the perfect blend of light and dark. It's light enough for endulging in a few cups yet dark enough that it gives you the perk.
The single cup coffee brewer also known as Ready Set Joe is the bomb! I can go ahead and tell you that I despise instant coffee. It doesn't matter what brand, I just can't stand the taste. However, with the single cup coffee brewer, I can have the best of both worlds! I get the best coffee that I can make instantly in this coffee brewer without the instant taste. It's awesome. If you are like me, and are often the one wanting a cup while everyone else is done drinking coffee, this is the system for you. It brews up a fabulous cup of coffee for just you without suffering on taste like you do with the instant - stir some grinds that desolve in water types. This is also the perfect system for those who live alone that never have a need to make a full pot.
