Are you a daily coffee drinker? Do you use coffee pods? Have you heard of Dripjoy??
Thank's Dripjoy for sending me this coffee for free in exchange for an honest review. I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are my own.
As far as coffee 'pods' go. These were a solid 8/10. I've had some really bad clearance rack coffees and I was weary that these might not be par for the course. However; I was pleasantly surprised with the balance in my cup. I would compare them to the most popular coffee tycoons coffee pods. This coffee fits in the category of 'accessible' for me, they won't easily disappoint the average coffee consumer.
I don't typically add any creamer, milk, or sugar to my coffee. I like to taste the 'flavor notes' in my brew. I could taste a few of my favorite notes with each sip.
My 2 reasons for not rating this coffee 10/10:
First - I cannot in good conscience rate a coffee pod at a 10/10 as I prefer to grind my own beans and hand craft my coffee, so I'm a bit picky and rate just about nothing at a 10.
Second - While Dripjoy Coffee Pods do deliver on the promise and are accurate in the description - I didn't find it to be incredibly multidimensional in that the coffee didn't get better and more exciting with each sip, but rather it was flavorful at first, then as the cup cooled it lost some of the aromatics that make coffee so exciting. I didn't find myself sniffing and sipping for the experience. I did find myself content though. This is the kind of coffee I like to enjoy while reading and working. I didn't find it to be captivating and capable of maintaining my full attention, but let's be real for a minute, most people don't expect that - they expect their coffee to taste like coffee! Most people drink it while reading the paper or pushing paper and Dripjoy delivers an enjoyable product for just that!
The two flavors that we sampled include Dark Bean Daydream and Morning Joy. Morning Joy is a medium/dark roast which has a blend of smoked cedar and lemon. The Dark Bean Daydream is a medium roast with flavor notes of chocolate and lemon.
Dripjoy is a very neat subscription so you can count on your coffee pods being delivered right to your door. The company will ask a few questions regarding your coffee habits to help you get the subscription that fits your needs. I see a $19.99 monthly order and a $39.99 order. The pods equal to .56 cents per pod, which is a very great price for a quality cup of coffee. Dripjoy also has a brewing system and you can get a great deal on when if you sign up for a subscription!

MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
