A fave coffee’s back!

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Island Coconut K-Cups

I live on coffee (and wine, too, but that’s not what I’m discussing today). I frequently will drink as many as five cups, even late into the night. It’s the fuel that keeps me writing.

That said, I have my personal favorites. Back in the 1980s, I was a huge fan of International Coffee’s Suisse Mocha. In the early 1990s, Dunkin’ Donuts French Vanilla was my jam.

ONE of my favorites these days is Green Mountain Coffee Roasters’ Island Coconut, which starts appearing on store shelves in March and is sold through June (after that, I’ve found you’re out of luck). I usually get my K-Cups at Bed, Bath, & Beyond, but I’m sure if you hunt the shelves of other stores like Target, you’d probably find it.

Game on, people! Time for me to stock up!

If you love Island Coconut and can’t find it after June, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND H-E-B’s Houston Blend, which is a little more coconutty, but damn close. You can order some of that online here (and yes, they have K-Cups too): https://www.heb.com/product-detail/cafe-ole-by-h-e-b-houston-blend-medium-roast-ground-coffee/2337503

  1. I do love a yummy coffee, but my daily grind is the cheap stuff. The two of us drink 2 pots a day.

    • I have bags of less expensive stuff and drank that for quite awhile, but I find the KCups work a little better for me simply because I don’t end up making a whole pot and dumping it. In the long run, I found that it was costing me more to buy a large bag and make pots at a time–I was spending $12/week (it’s CT. Everything’s pricey here). With the KCups, I spend $16 and get two weeks out of it, usually. And I watch for sales and I have coupons. So yeah, if you’re drinking two pots a day, KCups are NOT the way to go. Pots are cheaper.

      • Oh…and I also found that if I have a REALLY GOOD coffee I like, I don’t come home on a weeknight and drink wine, because if I do that, I get nothing done. If I have coffee at night, at least I’m still up for working.
