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.

Free Content Jackpot: the Local Library

I’m not sure when the light went off in my head – maybe it was when I realized I had purchased a book that I later decided I hated.  Why pay $16 or more for a paperback that sucks and then give it away or put it out in the front yard in a box […]
