Mama OWL Blog: A Twist to the Morning Routine with Beanies Coffee

A Twist to the Morning Routine with Beanies Coffee

Tuesday, 3 November 2015

REVIEW POST.

I don't know about you, but I need coffee in the morning. I have made a lot of lifestyle changes in the past ten months but coffee is one thing I will not give up. That first cup of coffee first thing in the morning, in the quiet half light before the rest of the house wakes up - I need that. I enjoy coffee in just about every form it comes in, but I do favour a steaming hot, rich, black coffee in a mug that is roughly the size of my head that I can sit and enjoy by myself, on the sofa in the dark, in absolute silence. No dogs. No kids.

Our mornings can be chaos. Depending on what I have been bothered to do the evening before, it can vary greatly in how crazy it gets. Ideally I try and make lunches the night before, I try my best to make sure they have packed their bags and have everything they need for the next day, but sometimes I am just too tired/busy/can't be bothered. That's life. I see you nodding your head. You know the score.

Around 6am, I'm usually awake. It can be 6:30 or even 6:45, but I am always awake before 7 without fail. I don't plan this, it just happens. Even on weekends. This is how I manage that perfect morning coffee in silence. Sneak into the kitchen, shush the too-loud kettle as it boils, and then stealthily make my way to the sofa for some quiet time. Beanies Coffee understand my coffee needs, and to add some variety to my morning cup of Joe they sent me their rather fabulous Stash Box with 9 flavours of coffee to try.


I admit I am a purist - flavoured coffee has never really appealed to me though I'm always up for a mug if it's on offer, but I am nothing if not willing to try new things. Send it on over, I said! I was rather excited to see Chocolate Orange and Very Vanilla in amongst the flavours, two of my absolute favourite things. Cinder Toffee & Gingerbread are also in there, making the Beanies stash box a fantastic Christmas gift idea for coffee lovers (in my humble opinion) and only £22.50 so it won't rinse the pressie budget.

But - what do they taste like? I didn't fancy the idea of a strong, in your face, overpowering flavour. Like I said, I'm a purist. I was pleased to discover that the flavours are subtle, and I enjoyed most of them (for example - I'm not a nut person so hazelnut was never going to be my thing, different strokes for different folks) & I had a great tip from Missy B who says "the Amaretto Almond tastes gorgeous with hot milk".

  2. I love Beanies Coffee. The Irish coffee is really lovely and is a much cheaper alternative to coffee shop coffees. These are a great Christmas gift too for coffee lovers #TriedTested

    1. Absolutely, and the stash box means you have a good selection to choose from in the morning when you fancy something a little different!

  3. I adore coffee and it is the only thing that helps me to feel human in the mornings. I keep hearing great things about these coffees and everyone at my slimming world class keeps mentioning them too, I really must try them out xx

    1. They are great, and only 2 calories a cup (when made with water!). I bet they'd taste great with almond milk too.

  4. I don't drink coffee, but my husband is a coffee fiend - he tried these and really liked them. Makes a nice change I think. Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

    1. They definitely do, it's nice to have something different to choose each morning - especially around the festive period and if you have guests!
