Melitta Gourmet Coffee Review and Giveaway

My hubby is a HUGE coffee drinker, he loves any flavors as long as it's not vanilla. He's never been really big on going to Starbucks or any other kind of coffee shop. I remember a time we went up to our local bagel shop for a quick bite for dinner and him ordering a cup of coffee. They have about a dozen choices and of course they are all gourmet blends. He had no clue what to do and it took him a while to finally decide. He is a simple man, he loves store brand coffees, the single packs of instant coffee that you can make in a hurry, and he loves using his Keurig machine. I am an occasional coffee drinker, I barely drink it, but when I do, I like a good, fresh, and delicious blend. I can live without coffee quite honestly but hubby NEEDS his coffee every morning, he can't function without it. When he does go without it, he is severely grumpy. We were VERY lucky recently to try a couple of great coffees as well as a Single Cup Coffee Brewer from Melitta. Melitta is a great company that has a wonderful variety of gourmet coffee and coffee accessories. Here is what we got to try:
*Ready, Set, Joe! Single Cup Coffee Brewer in Black-Coffee aficionados across the world know that the manual drip brewing process is the best and easiest way to brew fresh gourmet coffee. With this personal coffee brewer you can discover the true flavor of your coffee. It is stylish and so simple to use and gives you full control over the coffee extraction process allowing you to brew the ultimate cup of coffee in just seconds. This Ready Set Joe! Coffee Brewer uses a cone filter and has a slow drip to deliver a richer, better tasting cup of coffee. The cone window allows you to see just how much coffee you are brewing and also comes with a ceramic mug that holds a 12oz cup of coffee for you to enjoy.
My hubby is SOO in love with this! As soon as I got it and showed it to him, he took it from me and said that it would be perfect to keep in the garage. See, he is ALWAYS outside no matter what the weather and since we moved into the new house, it has gotten worse. We didn't have a garage at the old house, so for him this is a treat. At least when he is hanging out in the garage, watching sports on the TV, or doing work, he can brew himself a quick cup of coffee without any fuss. This is definitely a very smart and inventive idea for those of us who don't want a full pot or even a half a pot of coffee. Sometimes, hubby likes one cup at a time, so this is perfect. Filter, scoop of coffee and hot water, and just watch it brew right in front of your eyes, how cool is that. The great part too is it is non-electric. This is definitely one kitchen gadget you will love to have in your kitchen or in out case garage. This is stylish and simple to use and brews the perfect cup of coffee in seconds.
Cafe Collection-Classique Supreme & Hazelnut Creme Brulee- This collection of coffees are created with exceptional quality and uncompromising standards of the world's best cafes. Melitta brings to life the feelings of the most romantic European cafes. True to their European heritage, they select only premium high grown Arabica coffees from the finest coffee producing regions around the world. These top quality, hand picked beans are then batch roasted and ground extra fine to release the full elegance of the coffee. The result is an exceptional flavor that is always rich and never bitter.
My hubby loved the Classique Supreme as it is a medium roast coffee and he is really big into those. For me, there is nothing better than the first time you open up a new bag or can of coffee and the aroma that you get. This coffee was no exception. You could smell the freshness and I love the extra fine ground. I actually had a cup of this coffee one morning with hubby and I can tell you it is full-bodied flavor that is very smooth and satisfying to all of the senses. Of course, hubby took some of this coffee and put it into his Ready Set Joe! coffee maker and he really enjoyed it as well. I absolutely loved the Hazlenut Creme Brulee. It had amazing flavor with a light vanilla and caramel flavor. I loved flavored coffees, they are by far my favorite and I think this coffee is right on the top of my list of favorites. Hubby of course is not much of a flavored coffee fan, but he did say this one was pretty good. Right now you can get the selection of Melitta coffees for $5.99 and these bags are great size. Melitta has a wide variety for those who love gourmet and international coffee or maybe just the traditional cup. I am very impressed with the selection of coffees that is offered by Melitta, there is definitely something for everyone.
