Steeped Coffee Single-Serve Bags

As long as I have been alive, my mother has been an avid coffee drinker. I remember when instant coffee bags were invented – they’re like tea bags, but with coffee in them, and they are supposed to taste better than instant coffee crystals that you just stir into hot water, because there is some brewing involved. It seems like a good idea for when you are out of coffee for your drip machine or French press, or for camping, but honestly the brands she has used in the past have never worked for me. I like my coffee medium-strength and the best I could ever get out of the instant bags has been…not great.

I tried Steeped Coffee last fall before the holiday season began, in advance of my mom’s annual Thanksgiving visit. I had dreams of introducing her to a new brand that would blow her mind, and I also had high hopes of identifying a better backup for my own coffee habit. This is what grabbed me about the brand:

…each Steeped Pack contains hand-roasted, ethically-sourced, Direct Trade coffee that’s precision ground to showcase the distinctive flavor profile of every crafted blend.

The sample pack contains Light, Medium, Dark, Extra Dark, and Decaf, and includes instructions on how to brew the coffee for maximum flavor. I settled down to try it…

It is tasty!

No sweat. If you follow the directions and use really hot water, the flavor is strong and rich. The true test was my mother, though. When she visited I gave her the Steeped Coffee bags and she loves them. However, she left them behind. Good thing I can just order them and send them to her. The company even offers a monthly subscription box. They offer fun little accessories, too.

Summer in Agoura Hills

Early summer, before every day stretches into an endless parade of searing hot sun-scorched misery. The first concerts in the park, the ice cream truck, the trips to the beach. The feeling that school doesn’t start again for a long, long time. We adults know the truth, that school starts again in just a handful of weeks, but even though the kids are getting older, we shield them from it. How many more years will summer mean a break for them? For now, let them feel the freedom. Let them play.

Sipurbia 2019 – Get Tickets Now

Mark your calendars for Sipurbia 2.0 – Saturday April 27, 3pm – 7pm at King Gillette Ranch in Calabasas!

Last year, the first Sipurbia happened at Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills. Billed as a full day of wine and beer tasting, dancing to live music, and fun in the outdoors for adults, Sipurbia delivered. My husband and I attended as guests to experience the magic, and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

RIP Paramount Ranch. It burned down in the Woolsey Fire and although it’s said that the old western town will be rebuilt, this remains my last memory of frolicking there. At least it is a good one.

For Sipurbia 2019, we will frolic at King Gillette Ranch in Calabasas. We can do all the things we loved about last year, including:

Set up camp for the day under gorgeous old-growth trees for shade.

Smooch your lover. (This is not me or my husband.)

Browse the vendors selling cool stuff or get your beer and wine tastings.

Enjoy quirky side activities like cornhole and getting your photo taken inside a van.

Did I mention the wine tastings?

Bop along to the beat of some fantastic local bands.

 

Notes from our experience last year to make your Sipurbia the best:

-Definitely bring lawn chairs or a blanket to make your little picnic spot.
-Eat! If you focus only on the beer and wine tasting, you’ll surely get too messed up to have the best time you can.
-Don’t rush. You might not be able to cover the whole festival ground, but that’s okay! You’ll learn about wines and beers that are new to you, and maybe find a new favorite.
-The festival is awesome on its own – VIP entrance isn’t really necessary, but you do get early entry, extra goodies, and access to a private bathroom.
