In my opinion nothing starts the day off better than a cup of coffee. In fact, I set my coffeemaker for 6:00 a.m. so that my morning brew is ready to pour as soon as my feet hit the floor. I love a good cup of brewed coffee. But, there are those times when I'm home alone and a whole pot of brewed coffee seems a bit much. Or times like this week when I have been visiting my daughter's house, and I'm the only person in the house who even likes coffee. Or even those afternoons when I just want a quick pick-me-up when I'm lagging, brewing a whole pot of coffee is more than I need. For those times Starbucks has the solution.
Starbucks now has these individual serving packets of ready brew coffee. They are sold in packs of eight and come in different roasts and flavors. Each of these packets just need to be stirred into 8 ounces of hot water to be ready to serve. The three shown here are Colombia roast, Mocha flavor, and Italian roast. A vanilla flavor and a decaf version are also available. The different roasts and flavors suit different tastes, depending on what the individual prefers. My personal favorite is the Italian roast.
