Perfect Autumn Pairing: Apple Cider Caramels & Pumpkin Spice Coffee

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”

— George Eliot

Ahh…don’t you just love the fall?  There’s a new crispness in the air, the leaves have burst into colorful flames, and the squirrels (nature’s original hoarders) are frantically scurrying to amass nuts for the winter.  We have a serious crush on autumn.

In an effort to spread our major fall love, we offer you this perfect autumn pairing: Apple Cider Caramels & Pumpkin Spice Coffee.

When the air turns a bit nippy, and you begin to wonder if winter may be just around the corner, treat yourself to some Fair Trade caramels and coffee.  Cozy up under your favorite quilt and indulge in the yummy decadence of this awesome autumn pairing.

You deserve it!

Peace and Love,

Dave the Coffee Guy Reviews: Green Mountain Coffee’s Fair Trade Organic Ethiopian Yirgacheffe

Dave the Coffee Guy knows coffee.  In fact, he’s been known to tear tendons off his shoulder in the pursuit of coffee.  (Really folks, we’re doing the typing for Dave because his arm is in a sling).

From Dave the Coffee Guy:

This month’s Bean-to-Pick is Green Mountain Coffee’s Fair Trade Organic Ethiopian Yirgacheffe. This light coffee is full of flavor.  As satisfying as any dark roast.

Check out this description from Green Mountain Coffee:

“Ethiopian Yirgacheffe is prized by connoisseurs for its delicate fragrance of orange blossoms, with an elegantly sweet and clean finish.”

You’ll want to drink the whole pot.  Or at least pour yourself the larger cup.

RATING: 4½/5 Cups

SCALE: 5 = Best Ever! / 4½ = Superior / 4 = Excellent / 3½ = Very Good / 3 = Good / 2½ = Average / 2 = Fair / 1 = Poor

Enjoy,

Dave the Coffee Guy
