Weekend Morning Routine with Koffee Kult

Every weekend my alarm goes off at 7:45 am. Sometimes I will hit the snooze and sleep till 8am. Fun fact about myself, I enjoy waking up early! Whenever I am on vacation though, that’s a totally different story. The feeling of waking up past 10am, just makes me sick. I mean, it’s like half of my day is gone! Anyway, after hitting snooze, I like to lay in bed and just stare at my ceiling. Guess you can say this is my version of meditation! During the meditation, I like to think back on all the tough times I’ve experienced, who I was this time last year and how I’m grateful to be living in NYC.

I do this for about 10 mins and off to the shower I go! Another fun fact about myself, I take 2 showers a day. I know this is bad for my skin and such but I just like to be clean! In the morning, it helps my body wake up, so it’s a quick one. At night, the illusion of everything that I’ve touch being washed off, is great. After the shower, I like to put on a face mask. Currently, I am using GlamGlow’s Youth Mud mask. I was in Europe for 2 weeks recently with my best friend, so my skin was in definite need of repair. While I wait for the mask to set, I make myself a cup of coffee.

Coffee is life! I love coffee. It’s to the point where if I don’t have it, I get a headache. Bad to admit but it’s the truth. Thanks to Koffee Kult, I get to enjoy their gourmet roasted coffee! First off, I love how cleverly they use k’s and not c’s. My favorite of theirs is Thunder Bolt. It is their traditional french roast. It is smooth, has a nice kick and tasty! They also have 3 other flavors, dark roast (love as well), Guatemalan and Tanzania Peaberry. Visit koffeekult.com and subscribe to get 50% off your first purchase!

While enjoying this coffee, there will be music in the background. Right now, Eli Young Band has been playing nonstop! Once 20 minutes has passed, I’ll wash off the mask. Now to brush my teeth, get dressed and read until my workout for the day.

 

Special thanks to Koffee Kult for providing me the best koffee!

A Coffee You Need to Try

Does anyone else wake up craving a cup of coffee?  I for damn sure do.

Well, this past week, I finally bought myself a coffee maker! Didn’t even realize this but I made myself a progress journal only to find out that one of my goals for May was to buy a coffee maker! Yay for accomplishing a personal goal!

Another cool thing happened, Ed who represents Bristol Coffee Nicaragua contacted me and let me try out a sample of their coffee! Ya’ll. I LOVED this coffee and am very excited to share my experience with you.

Here we go:

The background: This coffee was made from the grounds of Nicaragua. The brothers, Marshall and Arthur Vaughan, chose this country because of their rich soils. They have both beans and grounds. Personally, I love grounds because who has the time to grind the beans?! Lastly, this is UTZ AND Rainforest Alliance certified! Yay for being employee and eco-friendly!

The LOOK:  The packaging is super cute and convenient. It won’t take too much room in the pantry plus it’s easy to pour it into the coffee cup!

The Smell: It has a smooth, rich with a bit of chocolate smell.

The Taste: I had two different experiences with the coffee. First, I tried it out with my coworkers. Since it was a sample, I did not use much of it, because of that it came out very light. Which is fine, everyone liked it but I wanted it to be a tad bit darker.

So, I tried it another time, only with myself on a lovely Saturday morning. For a cup for one, this is perfect! It was dark, rich and smooth just like the smell. When I added a bit of vanilla creme to it….delicious!

All and All, this brand is great! I would totally recommend this to anyone who enjoys a cup of coffee. It is also very affordable. Actually, here is the link to make your purchase: https://www.bristolnicaragua.com/

Thank you to Ed and Bristol Coffee Nicaragua family for letting me try it out!!
