One of my favorite stores to visit in Chicago is Trader Joe’s.
I usually come home with a nice assortment of great finds from here.
The staff is so friendly and always quick to give you suggestions of something good and generously offering a free cup of coffee.
This time we asked some of his favorite choices for coffee.
Our request was for a full bodied coffee that was rich but not bitter. One that would just go down smoothly but you could really taste the flavor. He suggested Columbia Supremo. Trader Joe’s coffees come as whole beans but they have a grinder right there by their cans which is very simple to operate.
I LOVE this coffee and will be buying it again for sure. It’s just exactly what I asked for.
Do you like flavored coffees? In the morning, I want my coffee simple…plain and black..nothing in it.
If I want a flavor it has to be at night and then not much of it. Normally I don’t care for the flavored varieties because they almost have a perfumed taste to them. :(
Hint for the day
Try placing a rounded teaspoon of powdered cinnamon on top of the grounds before brewing. It gives the coffee just a hint of flavor. Just enough that your guest will say, “what kind of coffee is this?” Adjust the amount to your taste.
Buy your cinnamon at TJMaxx for a great price!
Oh how I LOVE a GOOD cup of coffee!!
For some other great news ~~~~ we are getting a Trader Joe’s nearby just in time for the Holidays!
I’m doing the Happy Dance! :)
Hope you are doing the Happy Dance today too. I’m going with one of my daughter’s for her bridesmaid’s dress fitting.
May all your coffee be good coffee! Wish I could enjoy a cup with my Blogging Buddies!
