SUNDAY GIVEAWAY: Peet's Coffee :: Uzuri East African Blend


There are a lot of coffee addicts in America.

I'm one of them.

I love me my cup o' joe in the morning. I am not just one of those people who likes the jolt in the morning. I LOVE the flavor. Coffee, cream and a bit of agave - I am in heaven. I love the taste so much, I would drink coffee all day long if I was not caffeine sensitive (meaning - if I have a cup of regular coffee after 1 pm, I am awake until the wee hours of the morning). In fact, my only issue with one of my all time favorite shows, "Gilmore Girls", was that Lorelai's huge love for coffee tempted me to drink it every time I watched the show (often after the time cut-off for me).

I have long been a big fan of Peet's coffee. Their coffee is so, so good. And, their baristas take pride in making your drink slowly, and perfectly. For the "coffee foodies" I know, Peet's gets their vote for best taste. Peet's recently introduced a Uzuri African Blend - a coffee that is bold beyond flavor. Uzuri, means "excellent and beautiful" in Swahili, was named by the Kenyan, Tanzanian and Rwandan farmers who grow the beans.

Peet's has created a sustainable business model for thousands of farmers and their communities. Through farmer training and improved processing, the farmers are now producing coffee that meets Peet's strict quality standards, and earning them an estimated 30 percent more for their crop. That is a really big deal to these farmers, and we are all about supporting sustainable business!



This great blend will be available in grocery stores nationwide until March 31st. But, it will be available in Peet's coffeehouses and at Peets.com, as a permanent addition to Peet's collection of signature blends.

Peet's is going to give 5 lucky mamas the chance to try this coffee! We are giving away five 1 pound bags of this yummy Uzuri blend.

  6. I was never a coffee drinker until I married my husband. Now, I am addicted. I love having my morning coffee and it is all about the flavor!!! I get excited thinking of new flavors for my morning cup, and have even been getting up earlier so I can have my peace with my cup before getting the kids up for school :)

  7. I used to be addicted to the caffeine. A few years ago I got un-addicted when I was sick for a few days. (So I was puking AND had a horrible caffeine withdrawal headache. Not pretty.)

    Now I'm careful to stay decaffinated most of the time, but lately I've been drinking some coffee that my SIL brought me from the Dominican Republic. Yum!

  11. I think it is both the caffeine (especially in the am) and the taste. My husband and I love strong bold flavored coffee. Plus the smell alone helps get me going in the morning.

  12. Oh it's the caffeine for sure. Coffee isn't good tasting to me at all, but caffeine tastes like success. lbaran. pcs @gmail.com

  13. I love the aroma and taste of coffee foremost. The buzz is secondary, though I wish I could eliminate the headaches I get from caffeine withdrawal when I miss my daily fix.
