Product Recommendation: Caribou Coffee–Amy’s Blend

It’s no secret to those that know me.  I absolutely adore a good cup of coffee.  It has to have just the right flavor blend, and it can’t be any of that weak stuff either.  I need to taste it, feel it, and smell it brewing.  With this out of the way…I have found a new top-three coffee, folks.

Caribou Coffee – Amy’s Blend

Not only is their slogan perfection on it’s own…”Life is short. Stay awake for it.”  But, this blend in particular is quite warming to the body and soul.  On the back it reads…

“About Amy: Amy Erickson, our beloved Roastmaster, loved life, laughter, tulips and, of course, coffee.  In fact, the craft-roasting standards she established still make our coffee what it is today.  When Amy began her fight with breast cancer, we created Amy’s Blend to help with her medical bills.  We now bring this special blend back yearly in memory of Amy – and to help find a cure.  Here’s to Amy.”

In fact people, one dollar of each bag of this particular blend sold goes to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.  Why wouldn’t you want to support a wonderful product, supporting a wonderful cause?  Breast cancer isn’t something to be taken lightly.  It affects both women and men.  My prayers to all that have been touched by this. 

Although, we hate to see our loved ones affected by such awful cancers as this one, if they do lose their battle, we are fortunate enough to rest in the peace and faith that they have become angels to remain with us always…..Here’s to Amy…

  1. I did a case study on this company during college – it’s really a great, caring corporation! I got to try their coffee on a layover at the Indianapolis Airport on the way home from NC to WA at the Indianapolis Airport, it was awesome. So was their oatmeal! :)
