I’m not sure that there is a better Friday than National Coffee Day! Coffee and I go way back to my grandpa dipping my pacifier into his cup of black joe when I was a toddler. My mom says that has to be why I love it so much! I worked as a barista through college and developed quite the taste for coffee that was a bit fancier. Still to this day, I grind all my own beans and am often caught at home making up a fancy macchiato in the afternoon.
I have a I’m really not sure how anyone survives motherhood who isn’t a coffee drinker. It’s the nectar of the moms.
I spend on average 10-12 hours a week at the ball park. Sometimes, more than that! I LOVE watching my boys play, but man. It’s exhausting. Especially because I get to chase Lincoln around for the whole time! I don’t know if I’ve been to a game without a cup of coffee in my hand… You’ll also find me with coffee during the 5 hours a week I spend in the school pickup line or while running errands. It’s not that I really drink pots and pots a day, but I’m always drinking it on the go!
Recently, I was introduced to Circle K‘s new line of coffee, Simply Great Coffee. I’m not sure about you, but when I think gas station coffee, I don’t have very pleasant thoughts. I went to my local store to taste this coffee first hand and was very shocked! They use these amazing machines that are basically a barista in a metal box. With a refrigerated portion for milk, fresh espresso beans and perfectly timed brewing, you can get yourself a delicious, fancy espresso beverage in less than 60 seconds. Forget the lines, the wait and the big ticket price. Even the 20oz large is under $3! The touch screen lets you choose your drink (macchiato, cappuccino, latte, americano, espresso or hot chocolate) and size, then you can add in flavor shots from the flavor station at no additional cost. On your next errand run or before your next baseball game, make Circle K a pit stop. I’m pretty confident you won’t be disappointed!
I can’t forget to show you this one feature that I really, really love. The lid has this twisty part at the top that covers the drink opening. That means I can put it in the stroller cup holder, or in the car without it sloshing everywhere!
To celebrate the launch, Circle K will serve free 12-ounce cups of Simply Great Coffee beverages from 6 – 8am during the first 2 weeks of October. Check here to see if your store is participating! You can follow Circle K on Instagram and Facebook to keep up with their new products and promotions!
Since my love of coffee is very clear, I also love the coffee related things. Here are some of my favorites!
