I am not a morning person. Unlike my hubby,the chipper morning person around my house, I do not function well until I have had my caffeine fix. Several cups are needed to cause the transformation from grouchy grizzly bear mode to the fluffy feel good princess. When I was offered a chance to try a selection of Winchell Mountain Coffee, I knew my family would be happy I was being provided caffeine. I received four flavors:
Beach Blend: A Mellow Mocha Java
Valentine’s Day Coffee: An Affectionate Blend
Country Morning Coffee: A Leisurely Breakfast Blend
Wide Awake Blend: A Bold and Zesty Premium Blend
These coffees are part of The Boynton Collection, a collaboration between cartoonist Sandra Boynton and legendary boutique coffee pioneer and master roaster Bob Rivkin. Not only do these coffees come in blends I can relate too like “Not a Morning Person”, the cute cartoons on the front of the packages make me smile.
Winchell Mountain Coffee is a small, family-owned company located in Pine Plains, New York. All of their proprietary-blend and single origin coffees are sourced, selected, and roasted by master roaster Bob Rivkin alongside his skillful apprentice, his son Will Rivkin. Their coffee comes packaged in twelve ounce gusseted foil packages to lock in freshness. The coffee is available ground or left in whole beans.
My favorite was the Beach Blend because I am a fan of mocha. There’s something relaxing about starting my day leisurely sipping a cup of flavored coffee. Not that I usually have an opportunity for leisurely sipping, it’s more like quickly gulping. It’s good to have dreams.
My in-laws liked the rich taste of the Wide Awake Coffee. Since they get up around 5:30 AM, I guess they need to be wide awake.
Winchell Mountain is offering one reader a chance to try the Valentine’s Day coffee with your sweetie. You’ll also receive an adorable coordinating Sandra Boynton coffee mug that says “Bless Your Fuzzy Little Heart” and a Sandra Boynton’s 2012 Mom’s Family Desk Planner.
