Joffrey’s Disney Parks and Resorts Specialty Coffee Collection

I’ll preface this by saying, as I’ve noted on the blog before, that I’m not a coffee drinker. That’s mostly true. When I went to college in Maine, you better believe I was a coffee drinker. The winters were brutal, and walking around campus required the piping hot beverage to stay warm.

I enjoy the flavor of coffee, be it the beverage or perhaps worked into a dessert. Matt, on the other hand, does not. He can’t even stand the smell of it, so no personal-sized brewer in our house – not even if we have guests. We have to take them out to get their coffee fix (which, let’s face it, is usually in the parks 😉 ).

Despite not having a coffee maker at home, my office features a Keurig, and I was able to find a reusable K-Cup that fits the machine. The wonderful people at Joffrey’s offered to send along a few samples of their coffee for me to try, and I’ve been drinking them over the past few days.
