I love coffee.

I think it is in my genes.

Did you know you can trade this....
An empty bag of Starbucks coffee (any flavor will do)

for this....
A tall cup of coffee

I don't normally buy Starbucks coffee to make at home. It is expensive. My mom often buys it on sale and gives me the bags since there is not a Starbucks close to her. I love driving through after running errands and getting my free cup of coffee. The details are on the side of the bag. 

Since joining Costco (which I love) I started buying Starbucks again. Because you can buy this....
A 40 ounce bag of coffee beans for $21.99.

The big bag of beans is $0.27 cheaper an ounce compared to the smaller bag shown above. Twenty seven cents may not sound like a big saving, but for coffee, I think it's worth it. I've tried a lot of varieties of coffee, and I've concluded that Starbucks is one of my favorites. The other brands at Costco are not as good. However, I have not tried the Costco brand (Kirkland). I may give it a try next time I'm running low on coffee. 

If you don't have a coffee grinder you can simply put the beans in your food processor and process them until they resemble ground coffee. 
 Let the processor run for a few minutes, while stopping it to stir the grounds a couple of times.
This process will also make your kitchen smell divine. You will want a cup of coffee right away.
I only used 1/4 of the bag to get a whole container of coffee. The big bag goes a long way.

I just wanted to let all you coffee drinkers know you can get an extra cup of coffee out of your Starbucks bags. Also, spending a little extra on coffee is worth it because a bad cup of coffee can ruin your day.

*This is not a paid advertisement for Costco or Starbucks. They are just two of my favorite things.

  1. A good cup of coffee can also make your day. I love all good coffee, but Peet's is my personal favorite.
