Coffee Beanery Review And ~~Giveaway~~

**All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I was not compensated for this post.  I was given product for review purposes.**




Coffee Beanery opened its first stores in the United States in 1976, before the American public knew the term “specialty coffee.” In the years that have followed, Coffee Beanery continues to build its brand and franchise organization on the principles of time-tested and honored traditions and values. Exceptional coffee, a warm relaxing environment, and a corporate culture that embraces its franchisees with every opportunity to succeed and exemplify these values. Today, Coffee Beanery has over 100 locations throughout the U.S., 20 locations internationally, and is recognized as an industry leader for its unique family business approach, corporate culture and commitment to quality.

You can sense the difference the moment you arrive at our 45,000 square-foot Flushing, Michigan, facility which houses our corporate headquarters, production facility where all of our hand-selected beans are roasted, flavored and packaged, and our warehousing and distribution center. The abundant aroma of fresh roasted coffee surrounds you in a professional environment where every Coffee Beanery team member is committed to the same core values that our founders, JoAnne and Julius Shaw, established in the early 1970s.

Coffee and Tea are my favorite two beverages.  I could drink them both all day (and usually do!!)  I don't want to say I am a coffee snob, but I do know what I like, and what I don't.

I have heard good things about the Coffee Beanery, and their variety of coffees, so I was very excited to get to work with them!!

I was sent a Deluxe Suitcase, and it really is a suit case full of coffee!!





Send best wishes with this delightful gourmet coffee gift basket. In addition to 2 full pounds of coffee, you also get 18 samplers of our wonderful specialty coffee!

Basket Includes:

1 – 16oz Beanery Blend
1 – 16oz Chocolate Mint Kiss
1 – 1.75oz Colombian Supremo Sampler
1 – 1.75oz Breakfast Blend Sampler
1 – 1.75oz Beanery Blend® Sampler
1 – 1.75oz Italian Dark Roast Sampler
1 – 1.75oz Guatemalan Huehuetenango Sampler
1 – 1.75oz Peppermint Twist Sampler
1 – 1.75oz Toasted Almond Sampler
1 – 1.75oz Butter Rum Sampler
1 – 1.75oz English Toffee & Cream Sampler
1 – 1.75oz French Vanilla Sampler
1 – 1.75oz Chocolate Raspberry Sampler
1 – 1.75oz Double Dutch Fudge Sampler
1 – 1.75oz Swiss Mocha Almond Sampler
1 – 1.75oz Sinful Sundae Sampler
1 – 1.75oz Hazelnut Sampler
1 – 1.75oz Crème Brulee Sampler
1 – 1.75oz Amaretto Sampler

1 – 1.75oz Hawaiian Coconut Sampler

Let me say again, that the coffee comes in a suitcase!!  It's not sturdy enough to actually take on a plane, but it is still really cool.  I have given mine a new purpose and use it to hold arts and crafts supplies!!

Ok now on to the really important thing, the coffee!!  There were 18 samplers (each making a pot) and 2- 1 lb bags.  One of our 1 lb bags was Cinnamon Holiday Blend and the other was Peppermint Twist.  Oh my were both absolutely delicious!!  They both had just the right amount of flavor.  Both coffee blends are smooth with no bitter after taste.  

In our suitcase, we also had Butter Rum, Sinful Sundae, and Irish Cream.  I think those were my top three of the one pot bags.  We have tried almost all of the coffees (yes we drink a lot,) and we have not found even one bag that we didn't like!!

I am very impressed with Coffee Beanery's coffee, and I am sure you will be too.  

The Coffee Beanery also sells a variety of teas, coffee makers, mugs and many other items you would need to brew that perfect cup!!

I am hooked on this coffee, and I will be sampling their tea's real soon!!!

Do you have someone on your shopping list who is a huge coffee fanatic or are you yourself one??  Would you like to try one of the sampler suitcases??

One lucky reader is going to win a Deluxe Suitcase like I got.  How cool is that!!!

Enter below using the rafflecopter form, and good luck!!
