Coffee Beanery Review and Giveaway!!



It's been a while since I've reviewed a coffee company on here, but it was worth the wait!! Coffee Beanery generously sent me 4 bags of their flavored coffee for review; Cafe Caramel Cream, French Vanilla, Swiss Mocha Almond, and Hawaiian Coconut. 


I had a hard time deciding which flavor to try first, but ended up making some of the Cafe Caramel Cream almost right away. It isn't overpowering caramel, but is a very smooth, yummy taste! I guess creamy would be the best word for it :) I have made this as regular coffee, iced coffee, and iced mochaccinos, and it tastes great every way! It's the perfect flavor for dessert! Now, I have to admit I didn't wait til the next morning to try another flavor. After dinner I made a cup of the French Vanilla (iced) coffee. (I know I'm strange...10 degrees out and I'm drinking iced coffee!) This one also has a very yummy flavor, and tastes great both hot and iced! The Swiss Mocha Almond...just the name sounds great, doesn't it?! Well let me tell you, it tastes even better! The perfect blend of nutty almonds and rich chocolate. This has become my favorite flavor to use while making mochaccinos...the almonds add another level of enjoyment, and having the chocolate already in the coffee is great! (Okay, I still add some chocolate syrup too...you can never have too much chocolate in your coffee!) 
My Dad (who loves coconut) really likes the Hawaiian Coconut flavor. He usually has a cup of coffee every morning, and I've made this one for him several times. 
Now, I love coffee, but again, I'm kind of strange. I don't drink coffee unless  have flavored creamer to put in it. I don't know why, but my coffee has to have flavored creamer for me to like it! But, I tried a cup of the Cafe Caramel Cream and the Swiss Mocha Almond without flavored creamer, and liked them both! The flavor of the coffee was strong enough that I didn't need to add extra flavoring!
